Morning Music Notes – Let’s Talk About Sex
We have another song from Ottawa singer songwriter Kalle Mattson. We featured his stunning track, Darkness, and now we have An American Dream, which is the lead track on forthcoming album Someday, The Moon Will Be Gold.
Morning Music Notes
Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew has announced a new solo album, Darlings. It is the long awaited follow up to “Spirit If…”, and is out March 18. Even better news? You can check out the track Good Sex (whatever that is) below. (via Consequence of Sound)
I saw The National documentary Mistaken for Strangers at the Hot Docs documentary film festival in Toronto last April/May. It is an outstanding and utterly hilarious film, made by Tom Beringer, the younger brother of singer Matt Beringer. Mistaken for Strangers is in theatres and on iTunes as of March 28, and do go see it. (via Pitchfork)
Independent Venue Week runs in the UK from January 28 to February 2 and they’ve landed a pretty snazzy ambassador – Radiohead bassist Colin Greenwood. Greenwood will co-curate shows at Jericho Tavern in Oxford, where Radiohead played shows many decades ago, before they moved on to conquer arenas worldwide. (via Pitchfork)
Win Butler from Arcade Fire is used to a mix of good and bad reviews – it’s part and parcel with being in a band. Being called “gigantic dorks with boring sex lives” is a little new. Part of his response? “I’m a super-dork because I play with David Bowie. Bruce Springsteen wants to cover my songs because I’m such a dork. I’m not a dork. I’m a fucking rock star.” Booyah!

Virtual currency Coinye West officially gives up the fight against Kanye West, and shuts down. (via MTV)
