Two discs arrived in the mail last night: Here Are The Sonics and Speakerboxxx/The Love Below. They're both pretty hot, in completely different ways. The Love Below is especially rocking due to the wacky ways he mixes up different styles of music. My favorite so far is the random piano/drumbeat acoustic version of "My Favorite Things". Plus, there's random spoken word tracks mixed in (ala The Chronic) of which the best so far is definitely "God".
