In music news, shoegaze legends My Bloody Valentine have announced that they will enter the studio in December to finish recording the follow-up to 1991's masterpiece Loveless. Does not look like the album will be out by the year's end like originally planned, but it's getting closer. The band has already announced their return to the stage which will take place this June in England and have nixed the Coachella rumors.
- Vampire Weekend - "Walcott". These guys are New York City's next big thing. Four Columbia grads do their version of indie pop and do it well. They just signed with XL and will release their debut full length in January.
- Jens Lekman - "The Opposite of Hallelujah". Swinging melodies and excellent harmonies help this Swede deliver an infectious indie pop hit.
