Six O' Clock News
Exclaim! has a short piece on Kathleen Edwards and her new album Back To Me, which came out this Tuesday. It’s a very short piece. The photo is actually bigger than the copy. Chart also has a piece, and it’s longer but the photo is smaller. Also – pieces from West Coast Music, and Metro, which asks her about her first job. Yeah, top-notch journalism. There’s also a nice feature on Edwards in the latest issue of Harp. And you can listen to clips of the new album online at here, courtesy of her label. She plays the Mod Club on April 7. Yeah, I mentioned that earlier this week but sometimes I like to repeat myself.
And for some more Canuck content – Popmatters interviews Amy Millan of Stars about a lot of the same stuff they talked about when they made the Canadian press rounds last Fall, but one tidbit revealed is that her solo album, Honey From The Tombs, will finally be getting a release in June. Or so they say. Umbrella Music also has an interview with Amy, though I’m not certain how old it is.
Being There has a chat with Ambrosia Parsley of Shivaree, the lucky bastards. From the looks of the photos, it would appear that they were sitting almost next to me at the Lula Lounge shows last month. From Largehearted Boy.
Shows for this year’s Over The Top Fest, taking place May 5th through the 8th, are starting to be announced. Already I will be at Sneaky Dee’s on May 5 to see Matt Pond PA and By Divine Right. The OTTFest always has interesting and eclectic bills, so I can see my weekend filling up fairly quickly thanks to this.
Metafilter loves them some shoegaze. Thanks to Consolation Champs for the link. Speaking of which, a reminder that the monthly Miasma shoegaze night goes down at SpaHa tonight. Great tunes, expensive drinks. If you go, get loaded at home first. I will probably stop by after seeing Steve Earle tonight.
