New This Week: Madonna, Mirel Wagner, Billy Hart & More

By J. Edward Keyes, Editor-in-Chief

Madonna decided to wreak a little havoc by releasing her 12th album, MDNA, yesterday instead of today, which caused a host of other acts to do the same thing. To which I say: NICE WORK, SHEEP. We'll forgive you this time. Here's what I found. Tell me what I missed in the comments.

They Say All Music Guide

It’s one thing to emulate mid-’80s British groups such as Felt and the Smiths, but quite another to come close to recapitulating their greatness. Cats on Fire match the Smiths’ mellifluous guitar, Felt’s swirling organ, and both groups’ wistful lyricism without ever devolving into a tribute band. The parallels are striking, though: the title of “I Am the White-Mantled King” echoes Felt’s “Dismantled King Is Off the Throne,” and “Higher Grounds” — like Morrissey — elevates everyday ennui to a level of high drama. The Province Complains is a classic-in-waiting filled with durable, memorable, carefully constructed songs, almost any one of which could have been a single. Cats on Fire are part of an international renaissance of groups such as Indonesia’s Annemarie and Cambridge’s Pants Yell!, which openly reference the Smiths and keep the spirit of ’80s guitar pop alive for the 21st century. – Greg Adams
