What should I be doing instead of this?

Over the course of his four-decade career, Robin Trower has often found himself on the outs with critics. For his latest album, though, the guitarist offers his most subdued and quietly powerful work to date, featuring the most emotive songwriting and playing of his long career.

Ho ho motherhumping ho. How did we get to December? And Christmas? And 2011? Holy crap on a communion cracker, are the years shrinking along with the economy? That felt like 10 months to me, tops. Maybe less. C'est la vie. Let's check out some new albums.  

The Dead Weather, Drive-By Truckers, David Thomas Owen IV and Robin Trower

The passage of time has been on my mind lately; two good friends have passed through the portal this year and the celebrity body count has been unusually high (and high profile) in recent weeks, proof that no matter how well connected or wealthy or insulated from real life you happen to be, the words of Jim Morrison in 1969 ring true for each and every one of us: "The future"s uncertain and the end is always near." I'm passing time this week with new CDs from The Dead Weather (Jack White's newest side project), Drive-By Truckers, David Thomas Owen IV, Robin Trower and Bleu.
