Music Scene News – 18th & 19th August Round-Up

latest news

I’ve previously mentioned that Myspace Transmissions is pretty cool and the latest stuff to be added is from the ever-excellent Eels. Check it out, and grab your free downloads, HERE

Mani from the Stone Roses celebrated the 20-year reissue of the their debut album by pointing out that it is still more relevant today than most of the “dull as dishwater, safe, unimaginative” comtemporary releases. You can see a film made during the production of this iconic album HERE

Elbow are due to record the follow-up to the Mercury Music Prize winning album ‘Seldom Seen Kid’ next month.

Weezer to call their new album ‘Raditude’ – uhm, mmkay.

Calvin Harris has had a little Twitter tantrum about big bad journalists giving his album low scores without properly listening to the material. I’ll go one stage futher – I haven’t heard a single track yet and I’ll confidently state it’s more inane vanity-driven nonsense from the guy who is a legend in his own imagination. Howzat?

Flaming Lips have announced that MGMT and Karen O will feature on the new album.

Impressive track-listing for the upcoming Beatles – Rock Band game. If you like that sorta thing.
