Record reviews in tweet-sized chunks by Douglas Martin from Fresh Cherries from Yakima.

Wooden Shjips- Dos:
Recipe: Find a groove, lock in. Repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat. Trance music played with traditional rock instruments.
An Horse- Rearrange Beds:
Living proof that boyfriend issues are best solved through a girl belting pop melodies over loud guitars.
The Vaselines- Enter the Vaselines:
If you already own Way of the Vaselines, you still have the definitive collection of tunes by this legendary band.
Iron & Wine- Around the Well:
A thorough collection of rarities and b-sides from everyone’s favorite troubadour. “Swans and the Swimming” alone is worth the price of admission.
White Rabbits- It’s Frightening:
The best Spoon album of the year, unless Spoon actually releases an album this year.
Blank Dogs- Under and Under:
Still sounding like a “blown out Factory Records demo” (artist’s own words, not ours), but in the best possible way.
Crocodiles- Summer of Hate:
RIYL: Jesus and Mary Chain and… uh, Jesus and Mary Chain. And who doesn’t?
Crystal Antlers- Tentacles:
The most songs in 6/8 time ever heard on a punk record. More punks should write songs in this time signature.
Jason Lytle- Yours Truly, The Commuter:
Not quite on the level of Granddaddy’s best work, but close.
Metric- Fantasies:
Aside from “Help, I’m Alive,” which is legitimately great, if you’ve heard one Metric album, you’ve sadly heard them all.
