The International Herald Tribune reports on Nancy Sinatra's indie-rock comeback.

Tiny Mix Tapes reports that Death Cab for Cutie have added more tour dates to their schedule...no Toronto date, OF COURSE! ...You guys suck.(ok, I didn't mean it...just come back to Toronto PLEASE! PRETTY PLEASE!)
chartattack reports that the release date for Rufus Wainwright's "Want Two" will be November 16, 2004. It was recorded at the same time as "Want One", and of interest, "Want Two" will include a DVD featuring 20 live tracks from a concert in San Francisco. The CD will include the four tracks that Wainwright released in June as an iTunes exclusive EP and will also include eight previously unreleased songs.
More cross-canada tour dates are up at the King Cobb Steelie site, with the lads at Sneaky Dee's in Toronto on November 7, 2004 for a post-tour party at Wavelength.

The news update dated September 23, 2004 at Ted Leo's site is particularly interesting as Ted Leo defends himself against a website that got all pissy at him for bailing on an interview he promised them but never got around to doing. Some people are so sensitive. By the way, anyone know the site in particular because Ted's not telling.
