    1. Susanna cover. My iPod's really been serving this album up for FMD. I think this is three weeks in a row.

    4. LDR's new album, Norman F[.] Rockwell! is pretty great, the first album of hers that I feel is a good listen straight through:
    Born to Die: Great Singles with a bunch of weaker tracks after them. Solid as a six-track EP.
    Ultraviolence and Honeymoon: The songs are good, but I can't listen to the albums as the songs are so similar that they become monochromatic, depressive slogs. (Similar in effect to Sia, but for different reasons.)
    Lust for Life: I don't know; I stopped paying attention. I'm looking back at it now.
    I think NFR! is the first album that lives up to those first two singles, "Video Games" and "Blue Jeans".

    8. New Album coming next year?

    T. Tragedy of tragedies, none of Joel Veitch/Rathergood's music is listed on Discogs.com
