Also! The new Tom Waits album “Real Gone”  is brilliant!

Imagine the sounds of a half-greased machine, churning and clunking, overseen by the grunts, shouts, and soliloquies of a deranged captain. Clear strings mix with crashes, beats, and rumbles of unknown origin. This is the sound of Tom Waits' rhythm section, a familiar but still potent territory that Waits has created for himself and continues to explore with gusto. Though often described in dark terms, Waits' Real Gone is notable for the joy in its din--sure, it gets gruesome, but there's a twinkle of charm in even Waits' most phlegmatic deliveries.
