    Ted Leo has a lofty title on his shoulders. Being referred to as "the (potential) indie-rock Springsteen" by Billboard is no laughing matter, even if it's only a de facto nickname referring to his present and future influence. In any event, Leo's talented singer/songwriter status is backed by his always excellent Pharmacists, who've come together to release a new record, The Brutalist Bricks, early next month. We can expect more of the same brash, punk-rooted Americana that has populated his earlier work.

    Bricks was recorded in Brooklyn at Seaside Lounge. It is said to be his most explosive record yet... and for Ted Leo, that means some sort of combination of dynamite and C-4. Catch him and his always lively band on tour this spring.

    The Brutalist Bricks is out 3/9 on Matador. -joe
