Pet Shop Boys. new album April 21. new video for "Love, Etc".

I know, i know. The Pet Shop Boys haven't been relevant since like 1991. Post the latest Metric video and move onto the next Presets concert. Some of you were only little babies/not born yet when "West End Girls" came out, and you probably know that one song from them. But when you see and hear that video medley of all the Pet Shop Boys singles/hits, you realize they actually had a very impressive career with like 20 great singles while paving the way for accessible disco-pop. The first single from their tenth album, simply titled Yes, sounds very 1993 for them and retains their signature style, which is okay. No harm, no foul. Album releases by Astralwerks on April 21, 2009. -Kenyon

Phil Spector found guilty of murder

from CNN- After about 30 hours of deliberation, a jury on Monday convicted music producer Phil Spector of second-degree murder in the death of actress Lana Clarkson more than six years ago.

but here is the part i love- "Wearing a black suit with a red tie and pocket square, Spector showed no reaction as the verdict was announced. Now 69, he faces a sentence of 18 years to life in prison when he is sentenced May 29." That is such great reporting. Describing his outfit. It makes it seem so REAL!

The House on the Causeway
release: March 17, 2009
style: post rock/experimental
[rating: ***1/2] One of the more unusual recordings this year, this mysterious outfit from the UK has members under the names Operatives A and B. Look at their friends on myspace and it will explain a few things. They're inspired less by music and more by original great fringe thinkers like Edward Gorey, Harry Houdini and H.P Lovecraft. Awesome. A worthy additional to Monotreme's growing roster, House needs to be heard as a full album to appreciate the threads of piano, half-sung half-spoken lyrics and gothy atmosphere melding with late 70s/early 80s experimental artists. Think of Liars without the noisy bells and whistles and clanks. i am actually surprised i can tolerate this. -Kenyon
