After a month of sun, sun, sun where your time was best spend relaxing at the beach, now the rain is here... But not to worry! These warm, sunny weeks has offered some to some very exciting news on some of our favourite bands.
First of all, Golden Smog - an on-the-side group consisting of members of The Jayhaws, Soul Asylum and Wilco - has released Another Fine Day this week.
This means that Jeff Tweedy is one busy man these days. Besides the Golden Smog release, he is also sweating in the studio with his main group Wilco working on their up-coming album, due early 2007.
Meanwhile, the faboulous New Yorkers Interpol is also preparing an up-coming release early next year - despite they admit to having broken up four (!) times.
Last - but far from least - apparently my favourite wild-child, mess-head, hillbilly anarchist Ryan Adams has decided to keep up his manic record release tempo. Following last year's brilliant triology of "Cold Roses", "Jacksonville City Nights" and "29", the geezer is now contemplating another triple-album attack consisting of the tentatively titled "Blackhole", "War and Peace" and "Cardinals" - named after his backing group.
To indicate that he's not completely bullshitting, you can listen to the new tune "France" on his website. Here you can also see up-coming tour dates. So far, no Danish visits but that will hopefully change... Anyway, you have the chance to check out his current live form this friday as his show at Lollapalooza will be shown on a live webcast at 4:30-5:30 PM C.S.T. (that should be 23.30-00.30 Danish time).
