Poptones poses their always entertaining “Questions Of Doom” to Belle & Sebastian mastermind on their website. As reported last week, Belle & Sebastian’s new album The Life Pursuit will be out February 6 in the UK and be preceded by a single on January 16. And in the meantime, Revolution In The Head has another batch of B&S covers for your listening pleasure. The “Billie Jean” cover reminds of how sublimely they covered The Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” two years ago at Massey Hall, and how I’ve never found a recording of either that show or any show where they tackle that gem. Anyone got it?
Spoon tells the Freep it’s good to be back home after touring abroad this Summer. Technically, they’re abroad again tonight, in Toronto for a show at the Phoenix. They just flew in from Vegoose in Vegas late last night/early this morning, hope they get some rest!
The BBC is offering the video for the title track of the new Elbow album, Leaders Of The Free World. I hope you’ve all noticed the little contest banner up in the corner? It took me nearly 10 minutes to put together, so I do hope you appreciate it. The Elbow haikus are coming in, I’m looking forward to picking the best two and posting them for all to see. And scoff.
