The Information

Pitchfork, and Greg Kot of The Chicago Tribune report back from last week's Future of Music Coalition in Montreal.

The Associated Press spoke to Beck about his latest album the sonically ambitious "The Information" which was three years in the works and is finally released. Beck plays Ricoh Coliseum tonight.

The Globe and Mail reports on vocal tuning/pitch-correction technology Auto-Tune which apparently has widespread use in the music industry, especially with R&B artists, and young punk and emo bands. Neko Case chimes in on the subject.

Via Horseshoe Tavern, Vancouverites Blood Meridian will be at the venue for a show on November 9, tickets $8.00, while a Louise Post-led Veruca Salt will be there for a show on November 17, tickets $13.50.

Skatterbrain spotlights Detroit, "violin toting five piece", Rescue, who'll be in Toronto for a show at Sneaky Dee's on November 6.

I see that there's a few Ontario Joel Plaskett dates at the end of November including November 25 in Toronto at Nathan Phillips Square as part of Calvalcade of Lights[info]

Scottish indiepop band My Latest Novel, who I mentioned in September 2005, are coming to Canada for a show in Vancouver on November 30 as part of something called Transmission Fest according to their MySpace site. I hope a show in Toronto filters into their plans somehow.
