Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to 2007’s first installment of last year’s wildly successful and internationally-acclaimed Upcoming Attractions series. It’s the same song and dance this year with a stacked palette of (arguably) more anticipated releases for the pending months: in the coming weeks, I’ll occasionally update my Last.FM journal with new additions and announcements for upcoming records of the year, with a bit of commentary thrown in for even measure.
As much as I love to relay to you all every single nuance of thought and emotion behind every record that I mention, I’m mercifully jettisoning that aspect of this format in order to opt for a more streamlined function. Simply put, it’s just not pragmatic to think that you all give a Texas shit about what I think 100% of the time, and I just can’t be bothered to sit at the computer for that long. *smile*
Anyway, here’s my first entry of 2007, with a Norah Jones review following up very soon in the next couple of days. I hope this is helpful!
