The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

Spring break is over. I have a headache so this will be brief, friends.
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! [Anti-]
Nick Cave's mustache has more innate, boiling testosterone than 300.
The Black Keys - Attack & Release [Nonesuch]
Danger Mouse + The Black Keys. Didn't see that one coming!
Herman Dune - I Wish That I Could See You Soon EP
Cute-as-bunnies-in-dresses lovepop. From France!(?)
The Okmoniks - Party Fever!!! [Slovenly]
Punk rocknroll from Phoenix with synthloving. This band is like Grande Ole Party but with more awesome.
Foals - Anitdoes [Sub Pop]
The press one-sheet for this band says the add date is "April Foals Day." It is catchy but also dancy but also mathy but also poppy but also punky but also rad-y?
His Name Is Alive - Firefly Dragonfly EP [Acuarela]
This sweet weirdo band releases a lot of CDs. This one is very very good. Acoustitronic pretty-voiced nicities.
Cloud Cult - Feel Good Ghosts (Tea-Party Through Tornadoes) [Earthology]
This band is fun and optimistic and I hear they play "indie" rock but it is good.
Boy Omega - Hope On The Horizon [Self-Released]
