More Notable Music 2001

  • Old 97's - Satellite Rides - they believe in the perfect pop song, and guess what, it believes in them.

  • Frank Black & the Catholics - Dog in the Sand - he's back, he's Black, he's Catholic. guilty pleasures abound.

  • Pernice Brothers - The World Won't End - songs that are forlorn and downright gorgeous.

  • Superchunk - Here's to Shutting Up - sure, they've matured into a complex, elegant artband, but they still make me play air-guitar like a champ.

  • The Strokes - Is This It - so they're not the second coming of the Velvet Underground, but, man, they rock.

    Plus:

    - The Clean - Lloyd Cole - Kristin Hersh
    - The Donnas - Fugazi - Continental Drifters
    - Los Super Seven - Gillian Welch - White Stripes
