>>> The Walkmen might be jerks, but they make good music. That’s why we’re excited to announce that their new album, You and Me, will be out sometime this fall. The 14-track affair was produced by John Agnello (Hold Steady, Sonic Youth) and Chris Zane (Les Savy Fav, White Rabbits), and will likely feature lead singer Hamilton Lethsomethingorother singing his brains out, tons of reverb-drenched guitar, loud-ass organs, and other stuff that will no doubt have You and Me sounding like an album made by the Walkmen.
>>> Speaking of loud-ass, Mogwai and Fuck Buttons will be touring the US together this coming September. Seriously, if there is one show that you should bring earplugs — fuck it, earmuffs — to, it’s this one. (via Pitchfork)
>>> Literate Seattle rockers the Long Winters are said to be working on new album, slated for release sometime in early 2009. In case you were wondering, this band sounds like the Counting Crows. (via Spin.com)
