Multi instrumentalist Ryan Corrigan is releasing two album in 2010, one is titled Meat (physical) and the other Milk (digital). This his 12th studio album dating back to 1999, has a strong theme of failed relationships and heartbreak, featuring titles such as You Don't Just Want To Break Me (You Want To Tear Me Apart) and We'll Make Time (Even When There Aint No Time) not the best song titles of all time but certainly self explanatory all the same.
