Ex-Dismemberment Plan member Morrisons forthcoming album, all yall, is reportedly for everyone that loved his band, his solo album travistan, and for those who thought it was a trainwreck. I fall into both categories: I bought, lent, lost, and re-bought the Plans herky-jerky, soo D.C.-danceable Emergency & I for years, and have never seen an indie rock crowd bust out Soul Train lines for any other band. Long before it was cool to admit that you liked pop, the Plan covered songs like Tweets Oops! Oh My and Aguileras What a Girl Wants at the end of every show. Then came the split, the much-lauded Death & Dismemberment Tour with DCFC, and that disappointing solo album. But nobody ever accused this booty-shaker of being oblivious to his allure, which makes it unlikely hell stop making music anytime soon. And thats good, yallyou can stream the new record in its entirety for free, and it sounds mighty promising for the dance floor. With Hellfighters and Josh Ottum. RACHEL SHIMP
