Hear Ye: What rock nyc Is Listening To 1-31-13

1. Millions – Pusha T –  Getting his Weezy in with more than a passing nod to "A Milli, still Pusha T is in better voice than I've heard him in years and if it is all obvious "half a millin in the ceilin" is a great rhyme! – Grade: A-

2. Don't Look Twice – Ben Harper – OK, the harp is something special, that is true – Grade: B

5.La vie En Rose – Andrea Bocelli – They get poor little Edith Piaf out of her grave for this pointless mash up – Grade: D-

7. No Yime – The Move – From 1971 and still sounds pretty fucking out there psycehdelic twee pop via Jeff Wayne – Grade: B+

8. Indianapolis – The Bottle Rockets – Roots rockers and catchy as hell – Grade: A-

9. Johhny Appleseed – Joe Strummer – If mankind doesn't make it will be because they ignored this piece of advice: if you want the honey don't kill all the bees.

10. I'll Be The Light – Colton Dixon – Born Again and American Idol so nearly exactly what you think it is. But no worse than exactly what you thing it is – Grade: C-
