This morning, an e-mail purporting to be from one of the members of the avant-garde outfit/insane fanboy breeders Animal Collective went out, and the e-mail was a plea for the rest of their forthcoming album, Merriweather Post Pavilion, to leak because, hey, two songs had made their way to the Internet already. “[The] album is intended to be heard as a whole, and nothing bothers us more than individual tracks leaking and ruining the the overall album experience,” the e-mail said.

A new Britney Spears song just premiered on Ryan Seacrest’s soon-to-be-nationwide radio show, and for some reason Britney, who still has a whole album’s worth of good dance-pop tunes to release to radio, is now lowering herself to duet with that chick from The Hills who made the really crummy music… More »
A few gossip blogs are claiming that Little Jonathan Winery is actually the brainchild of one Lil Jon, so get out your pimp cups, etc., etc. Now, it’s nothing new for musicians to head into the grape fields in search of new revenue streams (especially given all the problems Jon’s label, TVT, has… More »
A sign that the “celebrity” DJ trend is not only scraping the bottom of the barrel, it’s oozing through the barrel’s slats and onto the gum-studded pavement surrounding it reached my inbox this morning: “Amy Fisher is back and will be hitting the turntables as a guest DJ, Friday January 4, 2008 at… More »
