The new Moby album, Wait for Me is available to listen at NPR.org. Tomorrow night at 9PM CST Metric will be performing live from Washington D.C. and, also tomorrow, the new Regina Spektor album Far will be available for online listening.
Barrel Monster creator Joseph Carnevale was arrested in Raleigh recently for larceny. Weak. I can only hope he has to pay for the barrels ($120 apiece) and doesn’t do any real jail time. If I were the owner of the construction company, I would have kept the barrel monster for my office.
My friend Rip sent me a text message a while back that said “Mt Dew in retro cans is made with real sugar…and it is delicious.” And he’s right. Mountain Dew Throwbackis delicious.
It’s no secret that I heart NPR. I adore just about everything about NPR except A Prairie Home Companion…and even then, I still think it’d be cool to hang out with Garrison Keillor. I love Car Talk, All Things Considered, Morning Edition, Weekend Edition, This American Life (Ira Glass is more of a stud than Steve Inskeep…sorry, Steve.) Anyway, if you’ve paid any attention at all to my Facebook page, my Facebook group, my Twitter or myBlip FM you can’t have helped but notice that my beloved NPR is streaming my even more beloved Camera Obscura’s newest album, My Maudlin Career. You can get a preview of the first single, French Navy on today’s All Songs Considered at NPR.org. In addition, there is some awesome stuff from Metric, John Vanderslice and PJ Harvey. There is all manner of other badass audio available from Metric vocalist Emily Haines. I’m sure if you do a search you can find much more fantastic stuff. Feel free to post it in the comments if you think I should give it a listen or, perhaps, play it on my show.
