Thursday, October 12
Last year's Pernice Brothers record, Discover a Lovelier You, just missed making my Top 10 Albums of 2005. Well, Joe Pernice is back again (already) with yet another full-length, Live a Little. It dropped October 3, all under-the-radar-like, on Ashmont Records.
The first time through, I wasn't loving this one nearly as much as the last one, but it turns out that its best songs are all back-loaded onto the second-half of the disc. Patience is a virtue.
