This week, Rolling Stone‘s Jody Rosen praises Move Like This, the first album by the Cars in 24 years, which he says “sounds so much like a Record by the Cars that you find yourself laughing out loud.” Jon Dolan also gives the thumbs up to the Saturday Night Live comedy crew Lonely Island, who “show no sign of running out of impossibly brilliant half-jokes” on their second album Turtleneck & Chain. Also, Jonah Weiner digs Gang Gang Dance’s strange, ecstastic record Eye Contact and Rosen pans songwriter Christina Perri’s plodding, insipid new disc Lovestrong.
