Hello all

Sorry for the (relatively) prolonged silence, but things have been piling up here, between class, internet problems, and just general malaise. But! To hopefully keep people's interest in the few days before another real update (with mp3s, even), here are some free music links:

Three leaked tracks from Björk's forthcoming all-vocal Medúlla album! Dunno who's responsible- if it's Björk's people, as seems quite possible, they could be up for a good while, but in case it's not, grab 'em quick. They're surprisingly good for such a potentially disastrous high-concept album, and I'm definitely feeling them more than the sleepy Vespertine...If you're pressed for time, get "Mouth's Cradle" first. It's the most up-tempo of the lot, and has a great choral hook and (I think) Rahzel.

Here's a long (71 minutes!) electro mix by EDMX (DMX Krew, Computor Rockers, Collapse of the Wave Function), as pointed out by Music for Robots.

You can download short mp3 clips of Julian Fane's upcoming Special Forces album here, in Planet Mu's discography section.

And John Vanderslice has a staggering amount of downloads up for grabs, including a few tracks from each of his in-print albums, the entirety of the limited MGM Endings remix disc of Cellar Door, his Insound tour support disc, live sets, vinyl-only B-sides, and, oh yes, the entire MK Ultra back catalog. Go forth! Fill your iPods and CD-Rs with Vanderslicey goodness!

Also added the excellent Spoilt Victorian Child to the links sidebar. Read. Enjoy. In The Future, all music blogs will be named after semi-obscure Fall songs, don'tcha know.

Edit The Name of This Band Is Talking Heads is finally coming out on CD! With some potentially sweet bonus tracks, too. About freakin' time.

And if you're into that sort of thing, which I for one most certainly am, Amazon are now taking preorders for the late Elliott Smith's final album, From a Basement on a Hill. Pitchfork didn't have much kind to say about the finished mix of "A Distorted Reality Is Now a Necessity to Be Free," but they've misled me enough times in the past that I'm taking Schreiber's write-up with a (very large) grain of salt.

Finally, the Postal Service are making a single of "We Will Become Silhouettes," hopefully with some more fantastic covers and adorable Kozyndan artwork. I loves me the Kozyndan, mmmyup.

Tiny Mixtapes:

I can't find any word on the B-sides yet, but it should be interesting.
