Dave Matthews' Big Whiskey: Best Album Since Mid-90s?
The Dave Matthews Band's latest album debuts today on iTunes and in stores. Early reviews at the WPost and Rolling Stone are lauding the release as DMB's best since the days of Under the Table and Dreaming and Before These Crowded Streets.
Of note, guitarist Tim Reynolds joins the band on this album, which is welcome news to fans of his past acoustic work with lead singer Dave Matthews. To be honest, I haven't enjoyed much of DMB since at least Before These Crowded Streets and so I will be curiously listening to the new album today in the office. I also have tickets to see the band in concert here in DC coming up in August at the Nissan Pavilion, though I suspect the Wilco show in July at Wolf Trap is likely to top DMB. More to come.

Could you give up complaining for a whole month? That's the crux of this interesting piece by Jessica Hullinger over at Fast Company. Hullinger explores the reasons why humans are so predisposed to griping and why, despite these predispositions, we should all try to complain less. As for no complaining for a month, that was the goal for people enrolled in the Complaint Restraint project.
