Not dead? Not yet quite dead?
So, uh, I don't know if you've heard, but Regina's got, like, a new album coming out today and stuff...maybe you were tipped off by New York magazine, or anthem, or American Songwriter, or Alternative Press...maybe it won't really sink in until you watch her on Conan Wednesday night.
For my part, you can probably guess what I have to say about the new record...but just in case: I think that Begin to Hope is not only the best work Regina's ever done, but also among the greatest things ever. I'm talking Master of Puppets-, The Godfather Part II-, tattered blue jeans- levels of awesomeness here.
Don't believe me? Such absurd heights of hyperbole strain my credibility, you say?
I'm going to pretend you didn't say that. I think you'd better buy the album and get the hell out of here before I get upset.
p.s., I'll have another old show recording of questionable quality up later this week.
p.p.s., You'd do well to pick up a copy of Dayna Kurtz's record Another Black Feather (for the Wings of a Sinner), also released today.
