One By One All Day
The newly-beige Pitchfork Media reports that The Shins will be releasing a single on September 9, as yet untitled, in advance of their new album, also as yet untitled, which drops October 7. That also happens to to be the day new albums from Death Cab For Cutie and Wheat are released – I am henceforth declaring October 7 the International Day Of Pop, or the International Day Of Frank Spending A Lot Of Money At The Record Store.
My Morning Jacket hit Lee’s Palace September 12 in support of It Still Moves. I have missed MMJ’s last three or four Toronto dates, I am not missing this one. And the new album kicks some serious ass.
The sophomore album from The Electric Soft Parade is out October 13 in the UK and is titled, The American Adventure. Ironically, there is no word about it being released in America. Some adventure.
Is Jeff Tweedy the newest target of Ryan Adams’ petulant ire? Tiny Mix Tapes reports it so – check out the story towards the end of the August 4 news. Jesus Murphy, Ryan, I say this to you as a fan – SHUT THE FUCK UP!
