Last night two new albums pitched a tent on my “oh my god” list of music. The Faint “Wet From Birth” and Tom Waits “Real Gone” are so unbelievably necessary I don’t even know why you’re still reading. Go get them! The Faint marches forward with its sexy themes and lucius lyrics. My uncertainties about how they would top Blank-Wave Arcade were shattered by the first track and continued to crumble through track two until they were disintegrated with “Southern Belles in London Sing.
