Eric 'Over The Top Fest' Warner posts over at Stille Post yet another interesting show to look forward to. UK folkie Vashti Bunyan with special guests Great Lake Swimmers will be at Harbourfront Theatre on October 3rd. Show is all ages, starts at 7:30 pm and prices are $24/27. Tickets available now through the Harbourfront Box Office (phone or in person) as well as Please note this is a reserved seated show.

Jam Showbiz reports that The Who have started to announce dates for a world tour including 7 Canadian dates. They'll be in Toronto for a show on December 3rd at Air Canada Centre.

Jam Showbiz spoke with Ana Rezende of Brazil's Cansei de ser sexy who among other things mentions how her band came to write their song "Let's All Make Love and Listen to Death From Above". NOW spoke with Ana about North American vs Brazilian cultural differences. CSS are in Town for a show at The Mod Club this Friday(July 14) with Diplo and fellow Brazilians Bonde do Role.

Billboard reports that Clinic will release it's fourth album "Visitations" on October 10th through Domino Records. Billboard spoke with lead singer Ade Blackburn who describes the new album as "...a lot more direct and more upbeat," and "...more designed to play live, rather than relying on the studio more." Although no longer listed at their booking company The Windish Agency's website, it had previously stated that Clinic were to be in town for a show at Lee's Palace on October 6th. I'd keep that date open if I were you.

Pitchfork reports on the progress of the recording of The Arcade Fire's new album, also pointing out evidence that frontman Win Butler is one heck of a sensitive guy.

My download recommendation for today is for everyone to go over to the MySpace site of Barrie, ON band Doris Day and download a few MP3's(or use the download links below - actually the band had these songs streaming for several weeks now but the download links hadn't been working initially):

MP3: Doris Day - "Carmonica"(live)
MP3: Doris Day - "Untitled"(live)

The expressive vocals of Carleigh Aikins on "Carmonica", combined with the song's propulsive melodies and harmonica-drenched instrumentation makes this one of my favourite musical moments of 2006. The only show the band has on the horizon is at The Bookshelf Ebar in Guelph, ON on August 3rd.
