CBC Radio 2 streams new Leonard Cohen track
This fall, Leonard Cohen confirmed he was finishing up his first new studio album since 2004 and, now, our friends over at CBC Radio 2 have scored a sneak peek: a single off the forthcoming release.
The track Show Me The Place is "a simple song and a sad song... but beautiful," says CBC Radio 2's Li Robbins.

During a trip to Spain in late October to receive the Prince of Asturias Prize in recognition of his songwriting and poetry, Canada's melancholy bard revealed that his new album -- Old Ideas -- was on the way.
Slated for release Jan. 31, 2012, it's being described as "the most overtly spiritual" of the 77-year-old singer-songwriter's albums and, listening to his hushed and familiar singing-speaking voice on Show Me The Place, we can't wait to hear the rest.
Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)

Fugazi joins Occupy Musicians.
Im still trying to figure out exactly what it is.
An online tool for sound engineers, etc.
They also put on concerts. Maybe it will be Fugazi by then.
Yes. I have never flown anywhere for a concert. I dont think its worth it. This one would be for sure.
So many things wrong with this lineup.

As far as "indie" music I would probably agree, but I have heard no shortage of fantastic music on various lesser known labels.
Indie music was mainly what I was referring to. 2009 spoiled me forever.
Only things that really jump out to me are Joanna Newsom and Titus Andronicus. And then things ike Oneohtrix Point Never, Emeralds, Rene Hell, Grouper, Colin Stetson, etc.
Not my thing but I'm guessing some of you guys will be interested. This is the complete collection (as far as I know) of every Iannis Xenakis composition: http://rootstrata.com/rootblog/?p=6377
I honestly think 2012 is going be even better for Live Music.Yet I think the worse part of 2012 will be that it is a pipe dream to think Talking heads will reunite for a Tour for us younger folk.I'm hoping before 2022 I'll see them.

Can we get some sorta original Stranglers reunion with Hugh Cornwell back on vocals.. be as big as the Smiths for me.
I lost my Terry Malts badge off my jacket at some point this evening. Fuck that.
I got an email about Mix Mag's nominees for best dance acts of all time, I didn't know Portishead was considered Dance music. But now I know!
This works as well as any: Milk Music is a band to check out. If the 90s sound is coming back en vogue, might as well get an incredibly ferocious sounding Wipers rip than a generic Nirvana clone. And I think these guys have potential beyond what the tags have suggested.

Agree or disagree:
Funeral would have been an even more effective album had Power Out and Rebellion been put back-to-back, like they used to play them at shows.
For Christmas I asked for a ton of different 33 1/3 books and wound up receiving two copies of the Unknown Pleasures one by Chris Ott. I'm not really sure where it came from and Barnes and Noble wouldn't take it back, so I'd like to offer it to anyone here who would like it. In return, all I ask is that you pay for the shipping (which shouldn't be much as these books are very small).
If you're interested, shoot me a PM.
Just came across this on last.fm, so good! Love the droney bassline.
