in the rotation
The National, High Violet (2010, out 5/11)
The New Pornographers, Together (2010, out 5/4)
Joni Mitchell, Mingus (1979, lala)
Rodriguez, Cold Fact (1970, lala)
The National embraces their inner, studio-glacier Radiohead; The New Pornographers release their outer, cocaine jamboree Fleetwood Mac. Both are smart moves. Joni Mitchell's Mingus, well, it was a bold move, as is this interview.
Above: the pork vermicelli bowl from Drunken Fish that just put that place back in the rotation even though they don't do a bánh mì any more.
