Untill the Dally in the Alley
Well if you read today new Music Tuesday, then you know i list the new release of the only bands that matters now some time i been accused of puting band that i like or as some friend have say i just put this because there a pretty cute chick in the band, well both are ture but i should be ponit out that i try to cover the underrated bands and artist al most ever day beacasue it am a music fan and lover of music for all my life but mostly the last ten years as the indie scene was dying after Nirvana as the rise of just plan awlful teen pop which i cant stand to the rebirth of roch thur the White Strips and other bands. So i you follow music like i do most of the Music magizine and Blog mostly review Album or live gig that came to town, but most of them dont review single expect one of my fave sourced pitchforkmedia.com they are the only on review single next to the NME which hands the best new single the single of the week and they do a good job of it and in the last few review they not been kind to the new single form upcoming CD.
Last week. The Killers made a bit sample of the first track to there upcoming CD Sam Town which is out in oct. but some body got the full track of the First single When you where young" and pitchfork was not kind giving it two stars out of four calling it this baby is a stillborn,not born to run, ouch if that give any thing the follow up to the hot fuzz may not be good.
but there were not kind to Franz Ferdinand b size single to "Eleanor Put Your Boots On", it called Fade Together A Remix by the Avalanches but there where not kind of etiher giving it one star saying it the single most sedate moment in the entire Franz oeuver and adding It's shomhow simultaneously the most audacious and the most boring thing they could've done with it, an i dont listen to it ever aging.
but there was nice Jessica Simpson giving her new song call "A public Affife star calling it "it just might be the most perfect vacuum created since that lispy brit's Tonka-sucker"and adding " Ms. simpson wouldn't maul the Eurovision qualifying rounds were she that reagoin of the world, bu there' no way she thumps the Finnish GWAR(this year winners Lordi) with this S?!&.
but hey there where more kind to Paris Hilton.... give her attempt at begin a rock star a half a star better(1 1/2 stars)
so some time there go and other time not that kind to read the review your self go to pitchforkmedia.com or ever Monday i put link to review for band that matters or should matters to you
Speaking about links that matter
brooklynvegan.com have more picture from last saturday Siren music Festival at Coney Island with

and The Scissor Sisters
and on rollingstone.com one half of Metric(Emily Haines and James Shaw) did a four song acoustic set that inclued cover of a Elliott Smith's tune 'Between the Bars.' you can click here for the set and i know Emily does look very diffence from octber when her band play the stick.
The Main topic of Conversation in the main and Indie Circir today was the Shortlist of The UK Mercury Music Prize, it go out every year to the UK Best albulm, Past winner and nominees incuelde (i wont go down the wholed list of band i like, Click Here to see the list)Franz Ferdinand,PJ Harvey,Portishead,Belle & Sebastian,Oasis,and Coldplay.
And i know the Mild Music Fans May dont care for a music Prize out of the UK, but for those people who follow the music scene all the time the indie and the under sever and who listen to music on the internet they may care i am one of them.
And after seeing the nomations, I am asking myself that what in the hell they pick these CD as the 12 best, But in years past music from artist who have no clue who they are have become Famos over night like KT Tunstall and last year winners Antony and the Johnsons so with My comment in ( ) the nominees are:
Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not
[it was a giving because they maintant all the hype that follow a good record]
Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan - Ballad Of The Broken Seas

Editors - The Back Room
[a lot of conserver there as well some it should amde the short list in 2005 and it should not make the shortlist this year, but it was release in the time frame July 25, 2005, they have a good record, and be in town at the stick on Aug,3rd, my brithday]

My overall review excpet for Arctic Monkeys,Thom Yorke,Editors and to some degree Isobel Campbell for all you long time Belle and Sebastian fans this tear shortlist i not the best on record, i do argee with the UK Music Critet Lilly Allen not on the shortlist you got to be kiding me here music is urber cool and not put her as one of the best alubm of the year is kind of bad next to Outragest Chreey not beging the big winners at the Detroit Music awards(but that is for differn time) so my final verict on the this year UK Mercury shortlist it between OK and so-so.
and by the way a correction when i first post the list this morning i said chair of judges for the Mercury Simon Frith announce the NOMINATED, but it was the one and only Jolls Holland the host of BBC-TV Later made the announcement.
The Winner will be announce on September 5.
Now i know your asking what happend to US version of the Mercury Music Prize, The Shortlist Music Prize, the last we ever heard of it was 2004 when TV on the Radio won it for there debut "Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes" but after a Disagreement between the co-founder of the short list put a holds on the short list in 2005 so there was no shortlist awards that year and it may mot coutenued co-founder Tom Sarig when on to put on a awards that is base on the shortlist(Which is base on the Mercury Music Prize), it was called The New Pantheon Music Award there first awards was hand out this year with Finalists from the like of the The Arcade Fire,Death Cab For Cutie,The Decemberists, and M.I.A. to name a few but the winner fo the that awards was Sufjan Stevens and his debut "Come on fell the Illinois", but the next Awards Finalists will be announce in November with the winner to be announce around Grammy time.

The Tom Watts show at the Detroit Oprea House that went on sale over the phone and on the internet is all sold out in only a day, wow and that mean there will alot of people asking for ticket from all over, i skip it because it cost too much.
