I know you were getting seizures from those Dead Weather ads on basically every music site and took a little break from the computer. Totally acceptable, so don’t you worry – we got what you missed this week on Knox Road.
Muse release The Resistance tracklist. Maybe they shouldn’t have though – Jon gets a bit too excited with the “seraph-mangling” titles and three part suite.
The Rural Alberta Advantage’s Hometowns streaming in full on Paste’s website, the week of its enhanced re-release.
Review Tuesday: Discovery’s LP is your hip summer jam.
Frightened Rabbit, The Twilight Sad, and We Were Promised Jetpacks release slew of dates together, showing us that nationalism is still alive!
The Dead Weather to premiere short film; music fans to shrug indifferently. Don’t you just loooove watching people walk dramatically? So suspenseful and artistic.
[Video] Death Cab For Cutie performs “Transatlanticism” with the L.A. Philharmonic Orchestra to match up with grand finale fireworks for the Fourth of July. L.A. is spoiled in just about every way possible.
Coney Island’s Siren Music Festival releases set times. Come find us KR guys in that big ol’ pit (unless we decide to hit the beach instead – Jamie loves a nice tan sunburn.)
Jamie reveals the supposed Orphan spoiler, presuming (correctly) “Knowing the Orphan spoiler is more fun than seeing the actual movie.”
Worst Things Installment, numero dos: Evian puts CGI babies on rollerskates for no reason, and doesn’t even have them throwing up (wtf??).
The Swell Season (lovebirds Marketa Irglova and Glen Hansard) to release CD, Strict Joy. The sound will probably be anything but.
Lee gets lost in a Typefighter dream, full of acoustic folk and satisfaction.
KR goes M.I.A.
*Pick of the Week*
You Ain’t No Picasso – “Ted Leo @ Bonnaroo 6.14.09″ Hard to really choose one here, as Picasso Matt reviews several Bonnaroo acts, but this Ted Leo recap is probably one of the most reassuring and includes some incredible photos. Oh, and be sure to check the YANP Spoon covers archive while you’re there! (I know, I cheated – I kinda gave you two posts there. I couldn’t resist!)
