Around The Web

Why not take a few minutes to see what's fat, hot, and popping fresh from your favorite digital space and mine - The Internets? Here we go:

- MTV2 has the premiere of the new video from The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus - False Pretense. MTV2 is also dropping 3 tracks from the imminent Bloc Party release "A Weekend in the City," even though two of the tracks you've probably heard before ("I Still Remember," "The Prayer"). But the third one is (actually) new at least - "Hunting for Witches".

- Borders is spotlighting The Shins (who isn't these days) and they've got some goodies, including keyboardist Marty Crandall giving his top fives on everything from indie rock albums to dinner guests. Also on the site is a brief history of Sub Pop records, the renowned independent label which is home to The Shins, among many others.

- iTunes has some killer exclusives up right now, such as The Decemberists' Apple Store SoHo performance from November, which sports 3 tracks from their latest album, "The Crane Wife." Meanwhile, Keane rocked out at the Apple Store in London for this exclusive semi-acoustic EP.

Now, not to cuddle Apple like our favorite stuffed animal from the age of two, you know the one that you just couldn't let go of no matter what, I mean the freakin' world could end and you would still be holding onto this thing...but damn I'm a sucker for the iPod ads. What can I say? They're clever, creative, bright, and shiny all rolled into one! And even better, they feature some primo songs. From Jet to Wolfmother and now onto The Fratellis. "Flathead," from their critically acclaimed "Costello Music" LP, provides the beats behind the frenetic, karate dancing silhouettes in the two newest iPod commercials, playing extensively on TV as well as apple.com. And stay tuned, because we'll have a full rundown on this emerging act, sure to be one of the biggest bands of '07!

Hey Lae,
