My latest music review in the OC Weekly — the new Brian Jonestown Massacre

It was interesting trying to come up with a review that acknowledges the band’s noteriety while not getting lost in it — as well as pointing out that Anton is someone who knows how to rile people up on a nearly constant basis. It’s a good album, one of his best ones, almost a return to the Methodrone days in some senses, but at the same time definitely something he could have recorded no other time than in recent years. Anyway, enjoy!

    Fantastic review, Ned.

    However, I think we may need to modify this:
    > But Newcombe’s core goal remains the same—
    > compose, record, release, perform

    Perhaps:
    consume, record, release, provoke may be more accurate…

    would be more accurate. also, the “click to enlarge” feature could use some work on the ocweekly site.
    Thanks, David S
