The Rolling Stones! Jim James! Thee Oh Sees! Gillian Welch!

Lots to get through today, so here’s a quick summary of the new arrivals. Best Dungen in a while… A new one from Jim James (I think I currently prefer his solo work to his My Morning Jacket stuff)… The amazing Solange album (please, please give “Cranes In The Sky” a try)… Major Stars and Calvin Johnson?Dub Narcotic albums incoming… Yet another Oh Sees album… THE ROLLING STONES (allow me one day to make a case for what a decent album “A Bigger Bang” was, by the way)… And, just as I began to put this list together, the Gillian Welch official bootleg set turned up. I’m playing that one as I type, and will write more further down the line
