Weekly Q-Tips

  • Big news in the mp3 world. iTunes as you may not have known bought lala a few months ago, and on May 31st, we will be saying a fond farewell to the endlessly pleasing full catalog of music. Is iTunes heading towards this type of monthly-fee to access all music deal or just eliminating the competition? 
  • The Black Keys are opening for Kings of Leon, it is undoubtedly a good move popularity-wise but that is hardcore selling out. The Black Keys are better than that, but maybe it's a clever ploy to attract Chaperons. They're playing in Raleigh on September 13th and Kings of Leon is in the studio working to drown the radio in half-pop half-wtf tunes for the summer.
  • On a much brighter note, Wilco is planning to record some new material this summer.
  • Tuesday May 4th Notable Releases
    • Broken Social Scene - Forgiveness Rock Record
    • Flying Lotus – Cosmogramma
    • Free Energy - Stuck On Nothing
    • The Hold Steady - Heaven Is Whenever [Pre-Order] [Album of 2010,  so far]
    • Josh Ritter - So Runs The World Away
    • Minus The Bear - OMNI
    • The New Pornographers - Together [Pre-Order]
