Alternative dudes Cracker have just released a new LP, Sunrise In The Land Of Milk And Honey, their ninth album. Is it any good? Well, we don't know because it never got a mention in Y! Music's own New This Week, a blog most Americans agree would be their favorite were it not for Framed.
We're pretty sure there's a good reason for that, and it probably has something to do with Ethel Merman. But we at Framed like Cracker, so let's see what they say about their new record. To quote their website: "This rich new trove of sharp-witted songs showcases a bristling, late 70's--early 80's power pop punk aesthetic which hits as hard as it did at the band's formation 17 years ago."
Bristling, eh? Rich trove, eh? It sounds pretty darn good! Caught up in Crackermania, we've decided to feature the guys in Framed this week, simply to boost their record sales. We occasionally wield our power randomly, as you know. We couldn't find a video for the new disc so we're going with the classic "Eurotrash Girl," off their platinum Kerosene Hat album.
You're sure to be delighted by the song and the video, which shows every sign of having something to do with the lyrics. Please share your joy by posting witty comments about Cracker, Framed, and anything else that enters your mind!
