I got e-mail from R.E.M.! Their new album’s coming out in May and it’s gonna be called “Reveal.” Bertis says: “It is difficult to describe in words the sound of this record, but I’ll stick with my original thoughts of ‘lush, atmospheric, and melodic.’ After repeated listenings I would add things like ‘layered’ and ‘dynamic.'” I say: “Um, okay. That sounds like another “Up” to me. Which isn’t necessarily bad, as long as it’s more ‘Daysleeper’ and less ‘Airportman.'”
