Five photobooks, five albums, five words each

Adam Bartos, Boulevards
Suburban parked cars suddenly reconsidered

The Staple Singers, Great Day
Guitar, harmony, gospel mix, unmixed

David Solomons, Underground
Small frames crammed with wonder

Deerhoof vs. Evil
Beefheart-punk gods slipping slightly?

Joachim Brohm, Color
Shore meets Friedlander circa 1985

The Handsome Family, In the Air
She writes, he sings: Gorgeous

Bernard Plossu, So Long
Ten books marching in column

Dap-Dippin' with Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings
Their first and best effort

Bajac and Parr, Parr by Parr
Chock full of thoughts; Eaggle!

The Fall, Grotesque
Sadly overlooked late-punk gem

Didn't mean to monopolize the field. There's plenty of room for other reviews...
