Go West, young popster
Michael Jackson occupies nine slots in the Top 10 of Billboard's catalog album chart this week and another wave of Beatlemania is about to break out, with the re-release of all of their albums —the freshest one was recorded 40 years ago.
But you don't need to dial back to the last century to find thrilling pop music.
For the past 10 days, I've been grooving to Go West, the brand new album by L.A. singer-songwriter Adam Marsland. Go West is a 2-CD coming-of-age epic that has more yummy delights than you'll find at a Baskin-Robbins counter and is catchier than H1N1 virus ever will be.
Go West is out officially on Tuesday, but you can order it now at Adam's website or from Amazon.
Enjoy this video of "When I Lied to Everyone," the track that kicks off the second disc of the album:
