CD Review: Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head – Glistening Pleasure (Planetary)

Despite the fact that garage bands with teenagers have existed since the early ’50’s when rock and roll began, I am continually surprised at the talent present in today’s young bands and artists whose albums I come across. Though not all are excellent, the breadth and scope of the musicality these musical youngsters often possess amazes me. Often, in my experiences with young artists, if you ask them who a certain older artist is they may have no idea, but often the sounds come across as if they have picked things up by osmosis or maybe did not know to whom they have been listening as if their parents have exposed them to it and they’ve had it ingrained inside them.
