Canadian pop music pioneers the Spoons have just joined Twitter, you can follow them here. They are also releasing a very limited edition 2 track cd in July with the new songs 'Imperfekt' and 'Breaking In'. The full-length album is expected to be released by the end of the summer. You can watch them performing 'Imperfekt' for the second time in concert at my recent posting on their gig at Dundas Square in Toronto.

According to a recent Tweet from Howard Jones it sounds like Duncan Sheik will be opening for Howard on his upcoming U.K. Acoustic tour in September.

Irish band Two Door Cinema Club met Prince Charles at the Glastonbury Festival today. They return to Toronto for a concert at The Phoenix Concert Theatre on October 25th, 2010.

I'm really enjoying the following songs these days:

James Yuill - First In Line
The Delays - Unsung
HURTS - Unspoken (Fred Falke reMix)
Villa Nah - Ways To Be
Francis & The Lights - For Days
Kamp! - Distance Of The Modern Hearts
MadFox - No Surrender
:Kinema: - Recreation
The Chap - We Work In Bars
BAKER - Echo
Scissor Sisters - Fire With Fire
Kingz with Jonatha Brooke - Here We Go

I was just reloading the Passenger cd "Wicked Man's Rest" into my iTunes at a better quality bitrate and checked their MySpace page to find that Mike Rosenberg and band are releasing a new album titled "Divers And Submarines" at the end of June. You can pre-order the cd and listen to three news songs Fairytales And Firesides, Intacto, Divers And Submarines on their MySpace page. Sounds like a slightly mellower/acoustic sound than "Wicked Man's Rest" but the tracks sound great. Mike's vocals remind me of a cross between David Ford and Damien Rice.

The band is just about to tour the U.K. and you can follow them on Twitter if you want.

Holly Brook has announced plans to release a cd titled "O'Dark:Thirty EP". It will contain seven songs from Holly Brook's long awaited album O'Dark:Thirty, and will be released on June 10th, 2010! It will be available for sale digitally and physically via bandcamp.com, as well as other online digital retailers.

I first saw Holly live when she opened for Duncan Sheik in Toronto in 2006 and she was amazing live and I bought her first cd "Like Blood Like Honey". She was also involved in Duncan's "Whisper House" musical and performed in the cast of the first production of the play in San Diego earlier this year.

My favourite song of Holly's still has to be "Heavy". More info at her ReverbNation page.
