Portlandia: The Complete Season 3

(self-released)

Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen again skewer indie hipster culture in this, the third season of their very funny IFC sketch comedy. The season includes cameos by by Juliette Lewis, Patton Oswalt, Martina Navratilova, George Wendt, Rose Byrne, Matt Lucas, Jim Gaffigan and Roseanne Barr.

Chop Chop

(Belly Up)

Some of the tunes on the latest album from the Irish band are a bit too melancholy (dreamy opener “Starlings Over Brighton Pier” doesn’t have enough umph to it), but the band is one of the smarter alt-rock acts out there and sounds confident and assured on this eclectic album.
