Unreformed hawkish Hoosier hillbilly Al Barger runs the still squeezin' down the psychodelic Kentucky moonshine at More Things. What with the paranoid religious visions, the Pentecostal music, visions of God and anarchy running amok and such, somebody oughta call the cops to report his out of control freedom of conscience. Till they come to take him away somewhere where he can't hurt anyone else, you can check out his weekly column of new album releases.
The release of a new Sinead O'Connor album is always a day of glorious, holy celebration.

New Richard Thompson, and R Kelly doubles up with Kid Rock and Snoop Dogg
Ozzy Osbourne has a new album called Black Rain. It's his first proper new album since before his dumb MTV reality sitcom.

Bjork was fascinating to watch doing a couple of these songs recently on SNL with her all-female Icelandic brass band et al.
