Music: The Most Interesting of 2007, Jeff's List

(Editor's Note: This is the sixth part of a series reviewing the notable music of 2007. To see the previous posting in the series, please go here.)

by Jeff Siegel

1) Nick Lowe – At My Age
We should all age like that. (To see a full review of At My Age, please go here.)

2) Ted Leo & The Pharmacists – Living with the Living
I dare a radio station to play a cut from this. (To read an ode to Ted Leo & The Pharmacists and other under-appreciated bands, please see the essay "It's Still Rock 'n Roll to Me," which also features a video of the band performing "Bomb. Repeat. Bomb.")

3) Heavy Trash – Going Way Out with Heavy Trash
Three chords that sound exactly the way the Supreme Being intended.

4) The Fratellis – Costello Music
I don’t know that it’s any good, but I sure like listening to it.

5) Spoon – Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
These guys could be really, really, really good. (For a full review of Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, please go here.)

6) The Pipettes
– We are the Pipettes
Are they serious? Who knows? Who cares?

7) Fountains of Wayne – Traffic and Weather
Not their best, but still better than almost anything or anyone else.
