Trent Reznor has struck again with another birzarro website and another track leaked from Year Zero. Head over to my blogging buddy, Culture Bully, to check out the latest, “In This Twilight.”

I finally got around two listening to the two new CSS tracks that were released from the BBC Sessions last week. Not only is “I Wanna Be Your J-Lo” an early favorite for title of the year, it’s also a very rad rocker.

I have a quick update from Art Brut. Album two is in the works and it’s looking like it’ll be out this June. No title or track listing has been released yet.

But wait, there’s more. Tokyo Police Club stopped by Daytrotter not long ago and blessed us with a four song live set.

Lions in The Street
, recently did an interview with the Austinist in advance of their appearance at SXSW. It’s really an entertaining interview, my favorite bit, was when asked, “Pitchfork, do you even read it?” Chris Kinnon replied, “Can’t read…too many big words.” Right on, my man.
