    Depeche Mode World Tour & New Album – 2009

    If I had to pick a label to give a best of 2008 award to, It'd probably be a toss up between Mute and 4AD, with Matador, In the Red, and XL recordings trailing closely behind them. Latest from Mute Records: upcoming release from legendary new wavers Depeche Mode, and tour dates in 2009. EPIC.

  • Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks

    Stephen Malkmus likes Capitalism

    When I read about the Stephen Malkmus TV interview, my first thought was that it was here (on that Daily Show FOX news rip-off I heard some jokes about last year), but the Red Eye (which airs at 3am) looks more like a FOX degenerate of the Henry Rollins Show, or like, Glenn Beck hosting the Henry Rollins show maybe.
