There is NO WAY the new Sky Cries Mary CD, Small Town (four stars!) is better than the fantastic new Art Brut album, It’s a Bit Complicated (three and a half).

Also: The new issue is online, including CD reviews.

Um, Sky Cries Mary is the worst band of all time? So, yeah, Art Brut is better than that. A lot better.

I can't believe wannabe ethereal 4 A.D. band Sky Cries Mary are still around, with that horrible font. Art Brut are easily better, but that lead "singer" yammering on with his over-exaggerated english accent gets so annoying after one song.

Musically, right, the new Art Brut is shit.

He keeps remaking "Formed A Band" like no one will notice. The review's too gentle, if anything.

At least Sky Cries Mary has bottomed-out expectations going for it.

Long ago, before there were more indie bands than anyone could possibly keep track of or care about or tell the difference between, I went to a free Sky Cries Mary concert at Volunteer Park. There were lots of proto-burning man hippies in the audience. People got naked. Fun was had.

This must fall under the same disease syndrome as artists who *finally* win their 1st grammy long after they stopped being relevant. I'm not a fan of SCM myself, but I respect the time they put in as old-school seattle music. They were doing their own thing when everyone was rocking nordstrom flannels. Seattle tends to be pretty snide to it's musical history. But Eric is still right.

#4- first show I ever saw in Seattle. Hella fun. SCM may not be the coolest shit out, but you can't hate on their stripes.
