……..dunno if these have been mentioned here yet, but son volt’s new album drops March 06th…it’s titled "The Search". i’ve heard 2 tracks so far and both sound great. one of them ("the picture" i think it’s called) has an almost e street band vibe to it, with some big horns and some keyboard…can’t wait to hear the rest of it! then on may 15 the new one from wilco arrives…"Sky Blue Sky". i’ve heard a few of the tracks played live, but as wilco fans know, what i heard on the stage could be a far cry from what appears on the album……i’m totally pumped up for both of these records. the last 2 respective records from these bands both rocked my world…here’s hoping for more of the same……February 18, 2007 at 4:33 pm #85694Quote:Grant Hart, ex-Husker Du, to Play Solo Show, Unveil Art
February 16, 2007
Drummer and songwriter Grant Hart (of Minneapolis-legends Husker Du) will perform at the Zone Gallery in Kansas City, MO on Friday, March 2. His rare solo performance will be part of an art gallery showing entitled Grant Hart: 20 Masterpieces of Modern Art, featuring Hartâ€™s visual works.
The Dada-influenced art collection will include pieces ranging from Hartâ€™s earlier collages to his more recent projects.
Only 17 years old when he co-founded Husker Du in 1979 with Bob Mould and Greg Norton, Hart designed all of the bandâ€™s award-winning visual art under a pseudonym. Husker Du gained revered cult-status throughout the 80s, inspiring many of the musicians, specifically Uncle Tupelo, who would forge the â€œNo Depressionâ€February 19, 2007 at 9:08 am #85695

Last I saw him solo (a few years ago) I couldn’t believe how great his voice sounded. Really strong and full. He’s a very strange, funny guy too, and very willing to hang around talking music, art, movies, whatever. I’ve heard he’s got a new album in the works.February 19, 2007 at 7:24 pm #85696
I hope the disc comes about, he’s been know to work slowly!
saw him last year, voice is still really strong, he is definitely a very charming flakeFebruary 27, 2007 at 7:56 pm #85697Quote:RADIO BIRDMAN TRIBUTE READY FOR PRE-ORDER

looking forward to seeing these guys again, War is not a bad song …Quote:Ladyhawk Discusses Mini-Album, Mega-Tour
Last time Canadian rock quartet Ladyhawk made an album, it had to record the material twice. The first take was a low-budget rush job cut live off the floor in an attempt to recreate the bandâ€™s frenetic performing style. Unhappy with the end product, the four musicians then headed back to the studio and re-recorded their eponymous debut from scratch, a decision that pleased both lead guitarist Darcy Hancock and his steadily growing fan base.
â€œ[Jagjaguwar Records] said theyâ€™d put it out the way it was, but we werenâ€™t really happy with it the first time around,â€March 8, 2007 at 6:29 pm #85699

Sister Vanilla – Little Pop Rock (due 3/20/2007)
Featuring ex-Jesus And Mary Chain luminaries Jim Reid, William Reid and Ben Lurie with Jim and Williams sister Linda on vocals, Sister Vanillas Little Pop Rock is an exhilaratingly fresh pop record which also serves as a timely reminder of just how essential the seminal group from East Kilbride actually were. There can be no doubt that the song-writing on Little Pop Rock incorporates many elements that will be familiar to Mary Chain fans, but to focus solely on the input of the estranged Reid brothers would be a disservice to the vocals of their sister Linda. If the reconvening of Jim and William on the same album (since The Jesus And Mary Chains final offering Munki in 1998) is some cause for celebration, its the sheer strength of Little Pop Rock, the allure of Lindas vocals and how angry, reflective and urgent the songs sound that should have you throwing an all-out street party.

can’t wait for this, always plays in the worst club here…Quote:My new album Bolts of Melody will see the light of day as an Adam Franklin album for the first time. The Toshack Highway moniker seems too unwieldy for a number of reasons – people never remember the name for starters (or pronounce it incorrectly!) and it’s just easier for people to remember my own name anyway. Also the album is much more song/guitar driven, and to me Toshack is more this instrumental/keyboardy thing, so actually the Toshack name might re-appear at some point with music more in that original vein, but for the time being AF it is..
The album will feature the recent Syd’s Eyes single and Birdsong (Moonshiner Version), which were previously only available as Black Mountain seven inch and Shifty Disco download-only release respectively, as those tracks should be made more widely available.
The cover of Wolf Parade’s Shine A Light that was posted at http://www.myspace.com/toshackhighway will also be on the album due to a certain amount of public demand – the lyric about "waiting for something that’ll never arrive" seemed particularly appropriate due to this album taking so long to get released!
The album should get released in the US/North America May/June time and there will be full band dates with the Bolts of Melody band in the US around that time.March 14, 2007 at 9:28 am #85701

March 29, 2007
Bob Mould, the driving force behind HÃ¼sker DÃ¼ and Sugar, reveals details about his next solo album to SPIN.com at SXSW.
Bob Mould and SPIN.com’s Peter Gaston
At SXSW 2007, there was no shortage of rock legends roaming the streets of Austin. We were most chuffed to have Bob Mould, one of our all-time faves, stop by the Spin suite. The man who helped stake indie rock’s claim on America with HÃ¼sker DÃ¼, wrote some of power pop’s biggest riffs in the ’90s with Sugar, and produced and engineered classics for Soul Asylum and Magnapop talked with SPIN.com’s Peter Gaston about his seventh solo effort, which is just on the verge of wrapping in Mould’s adopted hometown of D.C. with Fugazi drummer Brendan Canty and electronica maven Richard Morel handling production duties.April 20, 2007 at 3:17 pm #85704
