Rob Corddry (The Daily Show, The Winner) is one smart cookie.
In an interview in The New York Times Magazine today, he is asked to name his "desert island disks".
You've all played this game, right? It goes like this: What albums (usually 5 or so) would you want to have with you if you were stuck on a deserted island. That's assuming you have an unlimited power supply. And an iPod. Or a CD player. Or a turntable/stereo. You get the idea.
Anyway, you are supposed to list the five albums that you can't live without.
Mr. Corddry listed Boys and Girls in America by The Hold Steady as one of his choices.
If it's good enough for Rob and I, then it should be good enough for you. Give it a listen, OK folks?
PS - Actually not sure it would make my "desert island five" or not. I mean, it's pretty new and I'm still in the process of becoming a fan, but it's a lot of fun.
