Pump Like Thumpy has the new Tori Amos album, American Doll Posse, in all of its zipped-up glory. Posse is supposedly “performed” by a series of different characters, with names like “Clyde,” “Pip” and “Boo-Boo The Bunny”; there’s no word on which one is responsible for the horrific album cover, which looks like something you’d get made at one of those record-your-own-song kiosks at Great Adventure. Anyway, at this point, all the riffy set-ups and lazy mini-editorials in the world won’t change your mind about Amos’ music: If you’re a fan, you’ve already devoured the album six times over, and if you’re not, feel free to skip these and go listen to something more pleasant, like maybe two leaf-blowers making love in a beehive as Bernard Herrmann’s Psycho theme plays in the background.
