we'll build a fire in your eyes

The new Yeah Yeah Yeahs single has leaked!... sorta. The original mix of "Gold Lion" is still locked up safely in some record company office, but the Diplo remix has surfaced. Considering how much Diplo will rework a track, it still won't give you any idea of the direction the YYYs are headed on Show Your Bones, but it's damn fine in its own right.

Jamie Lidell plays the Plaza on April 16th with Warp labelmate Jimmy Edgar. I bailed on seeing him last time, because I wasn't that big on seeing Fourtet, but I'll definitely check out a show where he's headlining.

Liars hit Richard's on June 9th. I know it's pretty much accepted that dumping the dance punk for forward looking whatever-it-is was a good move... but I found their last album unlistenable. I think its the fact that some of the tracks reminded me of being at bad university pseudo hippy parties where drum circles spontaneously break out.

Hawksley Workman is at the VECC on April 3rd and 4th. (thanks Rachel) I'm quite fond of Hawksley, but it's still funny that when you google him, his website is described as "the official website of Canadian rock icon Hawksley Workman."

The Sisters of Mercy hit the Commodore on March 26th. (thanks DB)

I don't know how any of you who need a B&S ticket are gonna get one, but I humbly suggest that you snap up an Art Brut ticket before that sells out, because it's the same night and roughly $35 cheaper.

Finally, YouTube goodness via ILM and Via Chicago.

Wait... I lied... one more thing...
So, in addition to the Cons and Neko Case, the Shins are apparently going to rock the Gorge for Sasquatch this year.

so for Liars, you don't care for the new one "drums not dead"? or for the previous one "they were wrong, so we were drowned" which is the witches one.

i think i'm one of the few fans that loved the dance punk stuff AND the morbid stuff. but thats just me.

"they were wrong..."

i actually haven't bothered to listen to the newie yet... though i probably should give it a try.

the new one's pretty fucking great if you're into drum heavy stuff.

the new YYYs (or Diplo remix there of): dope. i watched their DVD last night again and I can't wait for the new rekkid...

haha, you'll probably hate "drums not dead" then. it's WAY MORE "hippy party drum circle".
