chartattack reports on the Canadian release of Saint Etienne's new album which is scheduled to see the light of day on January 24th in the new year. The Canadian version will feature a slightly different tracklisting than the European release which is already out. News of the band's fanclub CD compilation "Nice Price"(whose tracklisting you can see over at chartattack or on the new's page of the band's website) should also be available in the coming weeks.
video.antville.org points to a link to a music video of Saint Etienne's "Side Streets" from the new album. The video is pretty much a walk through London town. Kinda of a weak video actually and the song itself is a little too smooth for my liking(in particular the background vocals) but I like Saint Etienne and I really want to see them live this time around. Please come to Toronto! [photo from http://../]
Jeff Tweedy of Wilco performed a live acoustic session for BBC 6 Music's Gideon Coe this morning. They played "Muzzle of Bees" and "I'm The Man Who Loves You". Listen here(session is about 1 hour and 40 minutes into the program and the link is only valid for a week).
My Old Kentucky Blog seriously regrets now not asking The Watson Twins out when he was in college, now that the girls are cozy with a one Jenny Lewis. Jenny Lewis and The Watson Twins release their debut album "Rabbit Fur Coat" on January 24, 2006 through Team Love Records. The thing's leaked already but I'll just point you to Radio Free Internet who has some mp3's from the new album.
