For the Music Fans

The new music of the month (not that new, but on my I'm-finally-paying-attention-to-it list) is The Fratellis' Costello Music. It's a whole album of "Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da" style of Beatles homage. Fun, lively, musical, and still with a little something to say here and there.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not saying the Fratellis are The Beatles. Costello Music doesn't show anything like the range of Beatles we know (and how could it--it's only their first album, after all). It's entirely the jangle pop variety, but it's really really good for what it is.

I'll definitely be checking out their second album which comes out tomorrow. (I told you I was just getting around to paying attention to this album.)
