Just a link dump tonight, as we had to entertain the tile guy and the city property assessment lady earlier this evening:
Stereogum discusses last week's Hit Me Baby One More Time, which we missed, and lists this week's contestants. Needless to say that this week we are pulling for the very underappreciated Greg Kihn (C'mon, "Breakup Song," "Jeopardy" -- pure genius), although we'll be interested to hear whether White Tiger pulls out "Wait" or "When the Children Cry." Note to higher power: Please don't let them play "When the Children Cry."
Coolfer again relays some interesting stats: According to UMG digital music czar Larry Kenswil, quoted in the Chicago Tribune, "almost 90 songs had sold more than 100,000 copies through online stores this year."
Bob Mould points to news links marking the loss of Soul Asylum bassist Karl Mueller, who succumbed to throat cancer Friday.

The Mobius Band's first proper full-length after four or five years of Eps will finally see release August 9th. You can see the cover art and track listing here.
That is all.
