Before I mention anything else, its a great week for shows in and around London. Some bands that I can recommend strongly seeing include: Dragonette, The Most Serene Republic, Joel Plaskett Emergency (especially if you're partial to stuff that feels like the Tragically Hip), Amos the Transparent, and The Weakerthans. I have the dates posted for London, but I've linked to each of these bands myspace where show dates are available, and chances are if they're coming to London - their probably going to be at where you live.
- 'I Guess I'm Floating' has an awesome cover of BlackStreet's 'No Diggity' by Klaxons.
- The soundtrack for I'm Not There gets an 8.0 on Pitchfork, which means the whole thing is probably as good as the tracks they have up on myspace.
- Chromewaves has a copy of Amos the Transparent's duet with Amy Millan (Stars and Broken Social Scene) 'After all that, its come to this'.
Hopefully posts on Malajube (maybe), and Hayden at the beginning of the week.
