Drop box: Reviews of Freelance Whales, Mika and Asylum Street Spankers
The new release schedule picks up steam soon, but this week's batch of CD reviews is the final installment of Lost Tracks, featuring overlooked albums from 2009. This time we've got Bill Friskics-Warren on "God's Favorite Band," the new one from old-timey musical pranksters Asylum Street Spankers; Allison Stewart on "weathervanes" by folk-pop blog buzz band Freelance Whales; and Joe Heim on Mika's pop masterpiece "The Boy Who Knew Too Much." There's also the first Singles File of 2010 with new tracks from Delphic, the Drums and Black Milk.
