Ken Stringfellow’s new solo record Soft Commands will be out July 13 on Yep Roc. They’ve got an track from the record available to download as well. Stringfellow is without a doubt the hardest working man in indie rock – this year he’s got projects with Big Star, REM and The Posies in addition to the solo record. He doesn’t even seem to be able to find the time to dye his hair bright red anymore, the poor dear. I’m looking forward to the new record – his last one Touched was amazing. And on the topic of the Posies, their debut album Failure was just reissued.
Fairly redundant by now, but here’s the official album listing at Nonesuch for A Ghost Is Born, complete with track times. Use it as a checklist for your downloading activities. They also have one for i, the new Magnetic Fields album.
NOW talks to Neil Young about Greendale, Iraq, Dubya and the music industry in general. Neil is always a fascinating interview.
