The DVD is a recording of a brief live performance that has Frank playing thirteen songs in quick succession. While the brief spoken bits are so jovial and amusing as to make me wish he talked more, there's still something quite appealing about the almost effortless way he just plays one song after another, often with no pause in between. One of the most interesting performances here is a take on "Two Reelers" that has Frank doing sort of a combination of singing and speaking. I also think the live version of "Sing For Joy," while pretty close to the Honeycomb version, brings out the emotion better than the studio performance does.
Speaking of new albums, I can't really think of too much that I'm looking forward to this year. I've heard talk of a new Rilo Kiley album, which might end up being the first album of theirs that I'll get when it's still new. And They Might Be Giants are supposed to have TWO new ones, but we all know how they are about meeting their announced release dates. (And just in case you don't, well, they're BAD about it. :P) A lot of bands I like came out with albums in early 2006, but it looks as if 2007 might be a little slower. Even Christmass is technically a 2006 release, even though I don't think most Americans received it until this year. So what's everyone else looking forward to this year, as far as music goes?
