I have some album reviews in the works and have also compiled some idea for lists (yes, I have already decided on my top 10 of 2010 and no, number one ISN'T Kanye West like everyone else's list,) but for now, here are some things that are happening in the music world as of late:
-Bright Eyes/Conor Oberst is finally coming back with a new album releasing February 15. It's called The People's Key and Pitchfork is now streaming "Shell Games."
-Iron & Wine are also coming out with their fourth album, Kiss Each Other Clean on January 25. You can now download their single "Tree By The River" on their website here.
-Rumors have been swirling around for weeks now that Gorillaz will have an album out by Christmas. Reports have now been confirmed that Damon Albarn will release a new Gorillaz album on Christmas day for free on their website! (What a great Christmas present!!)
-Brothers Josh Farro and Zac Farro have left Paramore, Billboard reported on Sunday. Honestly, this isn't really a surprise. In fact I'm predicting a Paramore break up for 2011. Unfortunate, I know, but it seems as if the band is just holding Hayley back now. Brand New Eyes was great but it's no Riot! and they'll never be able to duplicate that brilliance. So it's inevitable that they'll officially throw in the towel soon enough, I think.
That's it for now! Check back for some album reviews and other random things.
