Plus and Minus

Minus 5So rather than Robyn Hitchcock make up some of the dates(including Toronto and Hamilton ones) he cancelled this year which were to be with The Sadies as his backing band, Mr. Hitchcock's hitting the road in the US in the new year with Minus 5.(Yay for US if you live there, boo for Canada. Grrr.) Minus 5 will be releasing their eponymous-titled new album(also being referred to as "The Gun Album") on February 7, 2006 and will feature members of Wilco, R.E.M., and The Decemberists.

Via the Arts & Crafts Broken Telephone forums, download Broken Social Scene's Morning Becomes Eclectic session(from November 1, 2005) from vanmega and download an mp3 of BSS' "All The Gods"(b-side of the City Slang 7" single of "Ibi Dreams of Pavement (A Better Day)") over at Thank God I'm A Nutsack.

The Shins spoke to Rolling Stone about their upcoming album for Sub Pop which they will release under the title of either "Wincing the Night Away" or "Sleeping Lessons", references to frontman James Mercer's insomnia problem. The band hopes to release the album next summer. [via Waved Rumor]

Thanks to Just Keep Bloggin' for pointing me towards Stars' new music video for "Your Ex-Lover Is Dead" which you can view courtesy of Muchmusic.

Morcheeba will be performing a live session this afternoon for KEXP at 5:00pm PST(or 8:00 pm EST). Listen online.

While Reverend Horton Heat's new Christmas album "We Three Kings" is being slagged by many critics, why not check out their version of "Run Run Rudolph" here(check the left sidebar under 'Media') and sample it for yourself? It isn't that bad. It put me in the Christmas mood at least.
