While cruisin’ the internets this afternoon, I came across the new single by Editors, “Smokers Outside The Hospital Doors,” on Indietastic. This one is big. It was produced by Jacknife Lee, who’s best known for working super-sized choruses out of bands like U2 and Snow Patrol.

Ear Farm has a preview of the new Bjork album. “Innocence” and “Declare Independence” will both appear on the forthcoming Volta. I hate the cover, but I can’t complain about the tunes.

As you may already know, I’m totally stoked about the new Buffalo Tom album coming out later this year. Dinosaur, Jr has set the bar awfully high for the old time Mass rockers. If this first single, “Three Easy Pieces” is any indication, it’s going to be solid.

Finally, Two Cow Garage were recently featured in MSNBC’s Independent Study column. Seriously, dudes, Two Cow Garage f’n rock so f’n hard. If you missed it earlier in the week, check out the review — it’s the first 10 in the history of The Rockometer.
