A bunch of stuff that has been languishing in my "to Blog" pile...

MrPink-7235.jpg Here's an e-card from Dungen highlighting their upcoming record and featuring a downloadable MP3.

I (shamefully) failed to mention that Pela's debut album, Anytown Grafitti, was released earlier in the month. You need to pick up this record. They rocked the house when they played Unbuckled earlier in the year. I'm hoping to see them next week when I head out to San Fran.

[MP3] Pela | Lost to the Lonesome

One new record I can't wait to hear is the new Mogwai record. It's a soundtrack from the "Zidane" movie. Here's an MP3:

[MP3] Mogwai | The Black Spider

Stream the new Art Brut track "Direct Hit."

Here are some MP3's from Fields, who I keep hearing good things about:

[MP3] Fields | Song for the Fields
[MP3] Fields | If You Fail, We All Fail

Here's a new track from The Mendoza Line:
[MP3] The Mendoza Line | Aspect of an Old Maid

Kegzies over at Dead Flowers has great posts about Ride and Hurricane #1 you should check out if you want to bone up on your Britpop precursors and also-rans.

Embed Flickr slideshows with flickrSLiDR. Can't wait to try this out.

Editing Disney video to explain copyright. Pretty awesome.

Going, going, gone?

Only about 33 hours until the NBA Draft Lottery decides the fate of the Boston Celtics franchise for the next 10 years or so. No, I'm not nervous. Not at all. Argh.

I'm going to check out TV on the Radio tonight at the 9:30 Club. The Noisettes are opening. AOL is streaming their album What's the Time Mr. Wolf.
Here are two videos from the group:
"Don't Give Up"
"Sister Rosetta (Capture the Spirit)"

The Mother Hips are releasing their first album since 2001. Here's a track.
[MP3] The Mother Hips | No Name Darrell

Toronto's Born Ruffians covered Grizzly Bear:
[MP3] Born Ruffians | Knife (Grizzly Bear Cover)

Minty Fresh is gearing up for the release of the new Astrid Swan album. Here's a taste:
[MP3] Astrid Swan | They Need You If They Think You Love Them

The Sundance Channel interviews Money Mark.

Related: I really like this Peanut Butter Wolf remix of "Shadrach."

Also, it looks like the lineup for the Virgin Festival in Pimlico is going to be released on April 27th. Here are the bands that have been confirmed thus far:
Police
Smashing Pumpkins
Beastie Boys
Modest Mouse
Velvet Revolver
Fountains Of Wayne
Bad Brains
Booka Shade
Sasha / Digweed

Totally digging Chuck Klosterman's Final Four blog. Key Passage: "I prefer the expressionless Mr. Oden, a person who's likely sitting beneath a singular table lamp, silently reading Chuck Eddy's analysis of the British invasion while peeling a tangerine."

This is all well and good but I still hate him. And Billy Donovan.

Your early entry list for this year's NBA draft. Tyler Hansbrough is such a pussy.

ESPN extends Bill Simmons through 2010.

Fluxblog has started a new blog (side project?) that will solely be about R.E.M. songs.

An open letter to Robert Smith.

Glastonbury sells out in two hours.

Bryce from The National is DJing on WOXY on Wednesday.

Wow! Sounds like the gig of a lifetime.

You're so clever. I doubt they care though.

I told you yesterday that Mew are teh awesome. Now hear for yourself. Download this, courtesy of KEXP, and tell me this doesn't blow your socks off:
[MP3] Mew | Am I Wry, No?
That shit is straight fire! Love the touches of piano. Download their entire performance for KEXP at SXSWorst and check out the KEXP blog for their entire festival archive. I'm slowly going through it and will post anything that grabs me. My only complaint: No Gruff!

[MP3] Grant Lee Phillips | Soft Asylum
Raise your hand if your favorite GL Phillips tuns is "Mockingbirds." His new album Strangelet is out on March 27th.

[MP3] Chromeo | Tenderoni
I'm hoping this is a Bobby Brown cover.

[MP3] Roger Waters | Hello, I love You
This is a new song on for the movie The Last Mimzy starring Dwight Schrute.

Two Amy Winehouse videos:
Rehab
You Know I'm No Good
Still not sure how I feel about this record, but I'm glad this and the Lily Allen record are moving some units. Better them than Nickelback.

[MP3] Central Serivces | Four Letter Word
[MP3] Central Services | Getting Better Lately
This band is out of Seattle and apparently KEXP hearts them. Ms. Smith, have you ever heard of them?

[MP3] Mika | Relax
This guy is hot shit in the UK, but he just sounds like a Scissor Sisters ripoff to me.

Goldenfiddle has new MP3's by Humble Rodent and Kings of Leon for you to check out. Don't worry if you don't like the KOL track. The album is awesome. My fave track is "Fans" (which you can get right here). It's been stuck in my head for over a week now. Make it stop!

Need a ticket to see The Shins at DAR next week? You're in luck, Washingtonian is giving one away. Go hit them up for it!

Damore's favorite band, The Bravery, is streaming snippets of three new songs over on their website. Sounds OK.

Heard The Noisettes yet? They're touring with TV on the Radio. Here's an MP3:
[MP3] The Noisettes | Mind The Gap

Watch the new Kings of Leon video for "On Call." I am soooo excited for this record.

That's it for today. Sorry. I'd write more but I'm too busy deleting SXSW concert announcements from my inbox. Wake me when it's over.
