Banksy - Did anybody else check out the exhibit? This is probably a little harsh - but I found it about as thought-provoking as a Jenna Jameson film.
The Little Ones - Apparently the rumors we've all been hearing are true, the bloggers are reporting that they officially signed with Astralwerks. Anybody else hear those stories about their other label meetings? Funny.
Pernice Brothers - Long time readers probably know that I think the Pernice Brothers are one of the most underrated bands. They're currently streaming their new album on their website and if you pre-order the album by 9/22 you'll get a bonus homemade CD with 17 bonus tracks and a cover designed and signed by Joe Pernice. They always come up with great ways to have a direct relationship with their fans.
Elliott Smith - Four more Basement-era unreleased tracks over at Elliott Smith b-sides. Get them while you can.
