Take The Fifth
Spoon have finished recording their next record – finally – and have posted a mostly final tracklisting:
The Infinite Pet
The Two Sides Of Monsieur Valentine
The Delicate Place
Was It You?
My Mathematical Mind
I Turn My Camera On
I Summon You
Merchants Of Soul
The Beast And Dragon Adored
They Never Got You
This isn’t a final running order, there’s no finalized title (The Beast And Dragon Are Adored was the last nominee) and no release date (I’ve got February written down but who knows). So really, there isn’t anything especially useful in THIS news blurb either. I’m sensing a trend here. There are some nice studio photos on the band’s website, however, and a gallery courtesy of Britt’s watchcam. Tip-off from Catbirdseat, who also has some artwork suggestions for the new record.
Billboard gets not a lot of useful information from Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips about another of 2005’s big releases, their next record At War With The Mystics, and their eternally ongoing movie project Christmas On Mars.
PopMatters grills Emily Haines of Metric about the creative process, cultural identity and being a sex symbol (in an interesting junction of the two topics, Haines was recently voted sexiest female Canadian musician by Chart). From Largehearted Boy.
In what’s becoming an annual tradition, The Sadies will be rocking in the New Year December 31 at the Horseshoe. Oh God, did I just say, “Rocking in the New Year”? That’s it. I quit.
I would like to say that this week has been a STRUGGLE for finding content. Like fighting off rabid hamsters with a whiffle bat. Some weeks these things write themselves. This is not one of those weeks. That is all.
