Music of 2007: #20–#11

Getting there slowly but surely. We might be two weeks into 2008, but that won’t stop me from looking back at 2007. By this rate it will be February before we get to the end of this list… 20. The Tuss — Rushup Edge Whoever is responsible for this is at least a genius at […]

Radiohead’s new album due out in ten days!

It seems a bit far-fetched but I don’t think it’s a joke. It looks like a novel approach to releasing an album as well. According to Jonny Greenwood (and he would know), their new album is called In Rainbows and comes out on October the 10th. I’m not sure about the choice you face though. […]
