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!
