Hmm…this week has been a surprisingly quiet week in terms of music, so this is only some short randomness to keep the blog ticking over!!!
The Cribs new single is out on the 29th October…and it’s gooooooood!!!Don’t you wanna be relevant is one hell of a catchy track that stays stuck in the head for days – i’ve pre-ordered, so i may do a second ‘Singled Out…’ post (exciting!).
Radiohead‘s manager has been murmuring about a world tour starting in May until the end of the year…doing shows on-and-off during that time…taking holidays for the rest of the time…aaaaahh the life of an international rockstar!!! Anyway, i hope that i will be able to get tickets this time… *crosses fingers hopefully*
The White Stripes have now released a range of (two different) cameras – one for Meg, one for Jack…and they are blooming expensive – it would cost me £240 for both or £120 for just one…and, although i love random things, i don’t love random things that much! If i had a load of spare money, then yes, i would buy, as the cameras do look quite cool, but alas…i do not!!!However, i must just say that i am disappointed that the White Stripes have resorted to selling these – i can’t help but feel that they are becoming more of a brand than a band…which is disappointing – let’s just hope that The Raconteurs come back soon so that Jack White can get back to doing what he does best – making music rather than selling his soul to commercialism!!!
Good news of the week, is that Brendan Benson has posted some new tracks on his website, which is currently undergoing a revamp – on first listen, they don’t sound as good as the demos he posted on his myspace a while back, but i think they might be growers (a bit long tho…) i still can’t wait for his album – i love all his others!!!
The Autumns and Andrew Bird are soon going to be in the UK to tour, and i can’t wait – it’s gonna be so good!!!
I have recently bought:
PJ Harvey – White Chalk
Hot Hot Hot – Happiness LTD
The Hives – The Black and White Album
Explosions In The Sky – All of a sudden, I miss everyone
Beach House – Beach House
Aphex Twin – Come To Daddy EP
Some of these may appear as reviews soon…stay tuned… 🙂
that’s all for now…peace…a.b
