Friday, Sept. 13

Tim Carroll, “Always Tomorrow,” Sideburn Records. An alt-country kind of guy, Carroll never bothered to get really good before he made a record. Yeah, he’s got the lackadaisical attitude, the sloppy country guitar style, the songs that follow the twin formulas of classicist form and punkish silliness. It won’t be the worst record you’ve ever heard, but you won’t want to hear it twice.

Various Artists, “Get Low Down! The Soul of New Orleans ’65-67,” Sundazed Records. Who could possibly argue with a set of 50 rare soul singles from the town of New Orleans? Not me, that’s for sure. Grooves bubble and pop, horns snap, and vocalists testify. Let’s have a party!

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, “The Last DJ,” Warner Bros. Records. I’m not sure when this is planned for release, but it’s mighty good stuff. Petty sounds more pissed off than he’s been in a while, making for a nicely snarling rock effort. On the other hand, he’s got an awful lot of songs in the basic mid-tempo feel, and he’s not delivering the kind of classic hooks he’s done many times in the past. Further listening is clearly required to determine how good a record this. I can say with assurance, though, that his streak is being kept alive of never making anything less than quite listenable.
