My favourite radio station that broadcast on the internet has recently come back alive from a length hiatus due to the fees introduced a while ago for internet broadcast. The station is which is from the university of Miami and they play a nice mix of modern indi-{rock,electronica,glitch,etc.}.

More Music

After spending the evening listening to a good CITR broadcast I thought that I really should mention them as well. A little closer to home than WVUM and they can be just as good, if not better because of their variety. Only problem is that they broadcast in Real format. Upside is that they have a link to an alternative player for real streams (windows only). Here is their program schedule. They have an excellent jazz show and a pretty good metal show too. I think that nardwuar started here too.

Shatner "Has Been"

Wo, how'd I miss this. Captain Kirk has a new album entitled Has Been coming out in October. It has a pretty incredible set of guest artists (including Henry Rollins!) and was produced by Ben Folds. I just heard his cover of Pulp's common people on CiTR and it rocks. Check it out.

The Black Keys

Sarah and I went to see The Black Keys on Sunday night and we are very glad that we went. I saw the new Black Keys video on Much Music a couple of weeks ago and made a mental note to check them out later. I had never heard of them before but they have two albums out already and a new one comes out today. I would classify them as blues/rock comparisons have been made to the White Stripes. The show was one of the best shows I've been to in qutie a while. It was at The Drink (supposedly known as the red room now but the sign outside still says the drink) which only holds about 350 people, so it was an intimate setting.

There are only two guys in the band, one guy covers vocals/guitar and the other guy hits his drums, hard. They came out with an incredible opening song that might have actually set the bar a little too high for the rest of the show because they weren't able to reproduce the energy of that first song, not that the rest of the show was bad, far from it. The sound was clean, hard to screw up the mix for two instruments. The only problem they had was that the drummer hit his cymbals so hard that sometimes they smashed into one of the mic stands around the drum kit and with enough hits the mic would fall out, a minor detail. Anyways, the show rocked, they rock, check 'em out.

New NIN Video

The Hand That Feeds

More rock and less techno than the most recent NIN stuff. I like it.
