Paul Simon — Paul Simon / There Goes Rhymin’ Simon / Still Crazy After All These Years / In Concert: Live Rhymin’

Only one of the four is a true reissue; but c'mon...it's Paul Simon


Pop

Stephen Carradini
Some reissues are chock-full of new bits that entice hardcore fans to go out and buy beloved albums again. Columbia’s reissues of Paul Simon’s first three albums do not fall in that category.

FM Belfast — Don’t Want to Sleep

Dance-pop album contains my favorite song of the year


Pop

Stephen Carradini
I listened to FM Belfast’s brilliant dance-pop tune “I Don’t Want to Go to Sleep Either” 15-plus times on the first day I heard it, including about eight listens in a row. The frequency was only a little bit lower for the next few days.

Two Suns — Two Suns EP

Artsy electronic pop with a unique idiom


Electronica
