This week we get Moonswept, the first proper new album in over a decade from the Roche sisters, Maggie, Terre, and Suzzy. Ten of the fourteen songs are new Roche sister compositions. They are a highly under appreciated act, particularly the awesome eponymous album. They've written some outstanding songs, but most especially there's nothing else like their unique family vocal harmonies.

Don't Tell Columbus is the latest from Graham Parker, one of the original apostles of the English 70s punk/new wave reformation movement. He's well past his artistic prime, but he can still squeeze off a sharp song now and again. Anyway, it's just good to see him still looking healthy and pissed off.
