CMJ New Music Monthly CD: Vol. 143

Lots of familiar tracks on the new compilation from CMJ New Music Monthly. Sandi Thorn's "I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker (With Flowers In My Hair)", in particular, is in danger of reaching a Clap Your Hands Say Yeah level of omnipresence if it appears on any more magazine CDs.

The Mew, David Ford, and Bright Eyes songs are all really good, but I hope to not see them on another compilation. (I also saw the same Mew song on another compilation on Wednesday.) My post-Thanksgiving-trip exhaustion is not a factor at all in my lack of patience with--Zzzzzzzzz.....
