Disc Notes (Fort Worth Star-Telegram)
Ono , Yes, I'm a Witch , Astralwerks: The guests on Yoko Ono's first album since 2001 shouldn't surprise anyone -- it's a list of indie hipsters who owe some debt to her future-shock discography.

From electro-clash vixen Peaches to the lysergic madness of the Flaming Lips, ...
