  • The avant-garde world lost a visionary as Adam Nodelman, member of Sunburned Hand of the Man among others, passed away suddenly August 25th of unknown causes. The surviving member of Sunburned are encouraging fans with Nodelman video and pictures to contact them here
  • Michael Gira-helmed Young God Records, home to Gira’s Angels of Light, Mi and L’au and Akron/Family, has signed Larkin Grimm and will release her full-length debut Parplar.
  • Kevin Ayers, never one to release music by the seat of his pants, is treating fans and skeptics alike to What More Can I Say…, a rarities disc featuring work from the Soft Machine vet during the 1970s. A 4-disc anthology, Songs for Insane Times, is also in the works. The box set covers Ayers’ 1969-1980 recordings but has yet to find a release date in the United States.
  • Are you looking to run your own digital subscription service? Napster happens to be on the market. The peer-to-peer network that kick started the mp3 revolution (and the RIAA’s suppressant behavior) is getting looked over by rival Rhapsody, who is hoping to up its subscriber base with Napster’s pool of satisfied customers.

  • And if you need further proof that digital music is here to stay: NME reports that London singer Estelle, who just performed at Bumbershoot on Saturday, saw her chart status freefall after her parent label Warner Bros. removed her current album Shine and single “American Boy” from iTunes in effort to encourage CD sales.
  • Hey, everyone must buy Hohner harmonicas! At least, that’s the line of thought from folk legend Bob Dylan. Vincent Price’s doppelganger is behind a limited run series that will house his actual signature and a specially designed logo from Dylan’s hands.
  • Stars have announced the release of EP Sad Robots. The EP will be available digitally starting today and can be found at www.sadrobots.ca. Physical copies can be found at Stars’ concerts, with the new tour set to begin later this month. The band invades Seattle’ Showbox in September.
