Reflecting Off Of Your CD
Rick from Over Anything knows a guy who knows a guy who says Wilco will be starting a tour to support their still-unreleased new album on April 21 in Columbia, Missouri. Presumably this will lead up to their Coachella show May 1, so it’ll probably just be west of the Mississippi. The band is currently in the UK mastering the album at Abbey Road. Tenative release date is June 8.
Update: Direct from the band – the new album will be called A Ghost Is Born, tracklisting as follows:
At least that’s what you said
Hell is Chrome
Muzzle of Bees
Company in my back
I’m a wheel
Less than you think
I’ve got about half this material in live format, and unless they went nutty in production, can say that this album will be a little more ‘up’ than YHF, harkening back to Being There a bit. Or I could be talking out of my ass, we’ll never know. Tour dates coming soon.
While I’ve been scared off from the Rainer Maria show April 1 (ahh! Emo kids!), the upcoming release of a live DVD and CD will make up for that some. The DVD features a complete live show from the Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, North Carolina last year, while the CD is a collection of live tracks collected over the past four years. Anyone In Love With You (Already Knows) comes out March 9, full details and tracklisting here.
Of Montreal have jumped from the sinking Kindercore ship to sign with Polyvinyl. Satanic Panic in the Attic comes out April 6. The Polyvinyl website has a sample track, “Disconnect The Dots”, available to download on their website.
Canadian file-traders who thought they were exempt from the witchhunts south of the border are going to be paid a visit by the CIRA. That’s ‘Canadian Recording Industry Association’ – our own little RIAA. The lawsuits aren’t on the scale of the RIAA – they’re talking about 20 high-volume individuals. That sound you hear is Derek screaming in horror and seeking asylum in Croatia.
Dear God, someone brought in a box of Krispy Kremes. Soooo gross.
