Huge Lanegan fan here as well. Bubblegum is on my top-10 all time (finally found a vinyl copy after years of searching, last month in Montreal). Mark has a new album coming out in May, with a British blues musician named Duke Garwood.

I'm not a HUGE Lanegan fan, but enjoy most of his work.

That said, Bubblegum is pure awesomeness. Mark sure caught fire in a bottle there.

First track from that new album is out, quite nice in a simple old-school blues way:

So what's Billy Corgan up to in 2013?

This would be high up on my Questions I Would Never Ask list.

Myself and 10 others have the same Alt-j ticket.

Weird, I was listening to The Year of Hibernation earlier today for the first time in months and then I see this. Just checking out Wondrous Bughouse now.

pitchfork keeps trashing Thom Yorke stuff, their attitude seems to be "try harder! make more ambitious stuff!"

Today I listened to Everything Everything's Arc album. I like the originality...but it's too all over the place. There's a fine line between being new and enthralling and just being a cluttered mess. Every song sounds fantastic at the beginning, and pretty much loses me at the halfway point.

I had never heard of Everything Everything (except as the name of the live Underworld album I used to own) so I went to youtube and listened to a song called Cough Cough and it sounded like a more accessible boy band take on TuneYards' style.

I like Foxygen.

I really like Nick Cave.

I really, REALLY like the new Nick Cave album. Been a while since he's exercised such restraint.

had the exact opposite reaction in my listening. strongly disliked most songs at the start, then grew to love them as they went. kemosabe especially

Maybe I'll feel different after multiple listens. Kemosabe was my favourite track too.

Back to Nick Cave - We Real Cool is pure concentrated awesome.

they basically want the album to sound like afp live. which to be honest i prefer, but i still really like the new album even if it is essentially an eraser follow up.

There's really no need for that T Swift vid to show up in every thread on the boards. We get it.

and of course the new David Bowie is available to stream or download as well.

today is a good day: first day of a long weekend with nothing to do, nowhere to be, and a bunch of new music to listen to.

Simon Collins' band, Sound of Contact, has finally updated their website with news. Previously, it was a blank "coming soon" page:

Sound of Contact LIVE in Montreal March 24 Opening for Marillion

Posted on February 22, 2013by sound-admin

Sound of Contact will be opening for Marillion at the Marillion Weekend event in Montreal on March 24th, 2013. Tickets are still available! Be the first to hear songs from the new album Dimensionaut LIVE before it’s released!

http://www.marillion...nts.htm#support

The touring line up of the band includes Simon Collins on vocals and drums, Dave Kerzner on keyboards and vocals, Matt Dorsey on bass and vocals with the addition of John Wesley (Fish, Porcupine Tree) on guitar and vocals, and Jonathan Schang (District 97) on drums and additional keys.

At least we know the album is making progress and should be released soon. It'll be exciting to hear what Phil's son can do. The album has a connection to Vancouver as well. Simon is from Vancouver, and the album was recorded here:

In 2010, Simon, Dave, Matt and Kelly went to record at Greenhouse Studios in Vancouver in different trio combinations with engineer Chris Holmes. The music and story of “Dimensionaut” was born.

Joining the team to mix the album was veteran engineer Nick Davis (Genesis, XTC, It Bites) who came from England to Canada to mix at The Warehouse in Vancouver. The album was mastered by Gavin Lurssen and Rueben Cohen of Lurssen Mastering.

Not sure what to expect, but looking forward to it.
