Hop On Pop: May Album Releases

Yes, in honor of Eminem's comeback this month, I have posted a picture of him looking 14 and wearing a pink Alf T-shirt.

Something about this picture just screams, "Beware the coming onslaught of homophobia!!!"

Otherwise, it looks like a pretty slow month for music, aside from Steve Earle's tribute to his late mentor Townes Van Zandt and Grizzly Bear's well-timed return.

We also have an hour-long punk-pop opera from Green Day to look forward to. What has two thumbs and is highly skeptical? This guy!!

The Field is an excellent electronic artist and Iron and Wine can make seductive modern folk. Check it out.
