Dessa tops the local top 10 sellers at the Fetus two weeks running
Here's the list of top local records sold through the Fetus the week of February 2:
1. Dessa "Badly Broken Code"Robert Christgau had this to say about A Badly Broken Code on NPR: "In a time when most lyricists, especially outside hip-hop, purvey impenetrable poetry, Dessa is generally very clear, which isn't to say she avoids metaphor or feels obliged to nail down every detail. She recalls an old-fashioned high-quality singer-songwriter like Joni Mitchell or Rosanne Cash."
2. Romantica "Control Alt Control Delete"
3. Lookbook "Wild At Heart"
4. Caroline Smith & The Good Night Sleeps "Live At The Cedar"
5. Solid Gold "Bodies Of Water"
6. Lookbook "I Fear You, My Darkness"
7. The Idle Hands "Hearts We Broke On The Way To The Show"
8. Lucy Michelle & The Velvet Lapelles "Special Party Time"
9. Red Pens "Reasons"
10. Trailer Trash "Smash Hits"
Also, in case you missed it, Gimme Noise will be posting Dessa's tour blog over the next two months. You can read about the first leg of her cross country journey here. The "Every Never is Now Tour" boasts supporting acts P.O.S., Grieves, and Astronautalis, and will head to the West Coast later in the week.
