The latest album from The Strokes, Comedown Machine, is out in just a few weeks. There have been differing reports about whether or not the band will tour in support of the release, but one thing is for certain: We can listen to the lead single, One Way Trigger, right this second.
CD starts upset because he missed Leeza Gibbons when she was in town last week. He then turns to the Jewish Film Festival and an intriguing film during World War II, My Best Enemy. After that, he talks about two flawed films he wanted to love, Stand Up Guys with Al Pacino, Alan Arkin and Christopher Walken, and Hyde Park On Hudson with Bill Murray and Laura Linney.
CD opens with his attempt to see Les Miserables. He could only take 10 minutes, and went to see Gangster Squad. Then he focuses on the endearing Dustin Hoffman film Quartet and the worth-seeing French film Rust and Bone.
Live Lunch is sponsored this week by Koerber’s Fine Jewelry, where the staff has over 120 years of combined experience to help navigate their wide selection of engagement rings.
January is almost over. That means our Album of the Month, the self-titled duets record from Americana heavyweights Buddy Miller and Jim Lauderdale, is about to sail off into the sunset. Well, we’re saying goodbye to January’s AOTM in style by welcoming Buddy and Jim to Live Lunch this Friday! Plus Derek Hoke, who is opening Buddy and Jim’s show at Headliners that night, will also be opening during Live Lunch.
First, I get enlightened on trivia from Mad Dogs and Englishmen. Then we get more enlightenment on a film that c.d. feels is well worth seeing…the story of a Spanish couple and their 3 sons caught in the tsunami…The Impossible.
We’re counting down WFPK’s biggest albums of 2012 all day leading into tonight’s big NYE bash at Headliners. We’ll keep posting throughout the day, and feel free to play along at home. Who will win? Well, with all of this amazing music, I’d say you do.
