Slow news day plus a general dearth in free time equals a brief, dog’s breakfast of a post. Or cat’s breakfast, as the case may be.
The most interesting thing to come up yesterday were details about Cat Power’s forthcoming second covers album which is no longer called Covers Record 2 because it’s no longer strictly a covers record. Jukebox will be out on January 22 and in addition to ten cover songs, there will be two of Chan Marshall’s own compositions – a revisit to (or cover of?) “Metal Heart”, which originally appeared on 1998’s Moon Pix, and “Song For Bobby”, a tribute to Bob Dylan. Matablog has the cover art for the new record as well as the complete track list.
eponymous, the new blog from the folks that brought you and then abandoned Good Hodgkins and Wolf Notes, has an interview with Fred Thomas from Saturday Looks Good To Me about their new album Fill Up The Room. It’s out next Tuesday.
