I'm really enjoying Rough Frame, the new record from The Art Museums, which is Glenn Donaldson from the Jewelled Antler crew along with fellow San Franciscan Josh Alper. I generally love just about anything that Donaldson touches (Mirza, Thuja, Blithe Sons, Skygreen Leopards, etc.) and this is no exception. It's lo-fi at its best ("state of the art home-recording circa ‘85"), with echoes of Tobin Sprout, Dan Treacy, and a few decades worth of anglopop.
