Album listened to this morning:
The Arcade Fire Funeral
Echoing something Matt talked about on his blog: MTV News has an article about Jimmy Eat World working with Liz Phair.
Billboard has an article on Aimee Mann's upcoming record, the Forgotten Arm. The song featured in the funeral scene in Jersey Girl ("That's How I Knew This Story Would Break My Heart") will be on the record. When I heard the song in the movie, I thought it was an older song since I don't have I'm With Stupid or Whatever.
One of Aimee's older songs, "I've Had It," is talked about in Nick Hornby's Songbook. I have yet to start reading it because I'm about halfway through Britpop! In England, Songbook is called 31 Songs. Also in England, Britpop! is called The Last Party. Interesting.
Oasis' records are now available for download. NME has the story. All I want to know is if "Round Our Way" will be released on a re-release or a download. I was a little let down that it wasn't on The Masterplan.
I still can't get enough of the silliness of William Shatner's "Common People."
TV on the Radio won the Shortlist Music Prize. NME has more info.
