"I got the AM radio on." - The Modern Lovers.

Friday odds and sods>>>

David Day gets a turn in StyPod.

This is insane.

EmptyFree drops knowledge on the best places to buy music in Paris.

Let the rejoicing begin, The Rub is back.

The New York Times has a great Arcade Fire profile.

As overt and overdone as this Ted Leo review is, I can't help but identify with a lot of the feelings the reviewer expresses here about new music and compulsive trendspotting.

Believe it or not, two of the best songs I've heard lately are from the forthcoming Spongebob Squarepants movie soundtrack. Stereogum has cuts from the Flaming Lips and The Shins.

Tony B eulogizes the late lamented Tune Inn in New Haven. The only time I went to the Tune Inn was with the Fong when they played there in 1995 or 1996, back when the Postman was still in the band, before the final rise and fall of The Original Lineup.

That is all.
