Today in Music: Loney Dear, the Killers, the Stooges, Akron/Family, Spiritualized, the Mooney Suzuki, Peter Bjorn & John

Thanks to Kristin for sending us this very cool performance from Loney, Dear. Enjoy!

  • From Stereogum… the new LCD Soundsytem video, the new Killers video, and a fun piece on handicapping the Grammys.
  • Pitchfork has a couple nice announcements… the Stooges announce tour dates, Jason Pierce of Spiritualized is returning to Earth, Akron/Family launch a giant tour, and the webcast program “In the Attic” is set to release an awesome comp featuring Death Cab, Flaming Lips, Raconteurs, Pete Townshend, Kooks, Editors, the Fratellis, and more).
  • In other news…

  • The R.I.A.A. faces major setback because “it is ridiculous,” and a New York senator proposes a “Bill Banning Both iPods from Crosswalks and Children From His Front Lawn.” And that’s no joke!
  • You have to feel for the Mooney Suzuki after their label, V2 closed down. They’re pretty much in limbo… They have a new record called Have Mercy, with no means of distribution.
  • iTunes and TicketMaster announce a partnership, and it’s rumored that EMI may announce support for MP3s.
  • Download MP3s from Peter, Bjorn & John and Explosions in the Sky.
  • Download a full album from Llama, courtesy of Seattle Powerpop.
  • Fans of Bjork and PJ Harvey will enjoy their cover of Satisfaction.
  • Finally, a big thanks to Tamar for this one. Feel free to whistle along. Happy Friday everyone!
