Boy George cancels show and The Hold Steady hit #30 on Billboard

30 07 2008

My whole chest burns. 

Music News: Just because it’s here doesn’t mean that we care about it.

The Streets have released a new single. Google The Streets and find it. 

AC/DC are in fact releasing thier 15th studio offering, Black Ice, in the near future. They’re also embarking on an 18 month tour beginning in October. The record will only be sold at Walmart stores initially in the states.

The Avalanches might have a second record coming out…

125 dollars will get you a limited edition copy of Madvilliany 2: The Madlib remix. The songs have been re-worked with new artwork. Stones Throw is only producing the box upon request. Order Up!

After Bows and Arrows The Walkmen went somewhere. (Louisiana perhaps?)

Two mediocre records later…

The Walkmen have announced that they have a new album coming out very soon. One can purchase the album via their website some twenty or so days early and the proceeds will benefit The Sloan-Kettering research center. Tell me if it’s worth it. This is what they had to say about it.

“All donations go to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in honor of Luca Vasallo, a friend to the band and a current patient who is seven months old and doing a great job fighting a very difficult disease,” said Peter Bauer of The Walkmen. “This is a very good organization that certainly deserves the attention.”

The Kinks frontman Ray Davies just finished writing a musical. The show titled, Come Dancing, is about growing up in post-war England. Come Dancing’ opens at the Theatre Royal Stratford EastLondon on September 13.

Jack White and Alicia Keys are in cahoots working on the new Bond Theme. It’s title? Another Way to Die.

There is a new Lee “Scratch” Perry single. I didn’t bother posting it.

Gigantic represents The Walkmen, so I’ve been listening to that album for awhile. It definitely grows on you, and I think it’s worth it. For five bucks for charity, anyways.
