The mighty Matthew Perpetua gives some love and linkage to the Divine Comedy's "To Die a Virgin" on Fluxblog today.
Britt Daniel picks out and discusses twelve of his favorite albums that are currently available for download on eMusic. "Judging by this list, that's what moves me: heartbreak and longing." Loves it.
Please be sure to bop over to Salon's Audiofile to download Justin Roberts's so-called kindie rock song "Meltdown." LK and I heard his band play it on the kids' stage at the Printers Row Book Fair earlier this month, and I almost sheepishly have to admit that it was one of my favorite things about the whole damn fair. Insanely catchy and instantly addictive. If only I could show you the hand motions that go with it. Ahhhh!
