I've got it and I think I'm in love

Well, it's that time of year. In August and September, we (the music-buying public) have to shell out cash for a number of potentially "hot new releases." This could be stuff that either seems promising from unknown artists (i.e. Lily Allen or Lupe Fiasco) or from artists who have a pretty good track record (by the end of the year we should see stuff from Beck, The Shins, DJ Shadow, just to name a few).

So, above is a new video from Beck (which is VERY promising). The song is called "I Think I'm In Love." Check it out and then get annoyed cuz this CD probably won't be out until October...

The other generous preview I have for you today is from Matador Records. Yo La Tengo's latest "I Am Not Afraid Of You And I Will Beat Your Ass" (that's the real title, folks) is on its way on September 12. They've been nice enough to provide a couple of MP3s from the disc "Beanbag Chair" and "Pass The Hatchet, I Think I'm Goodkind."

Please enjoy.

Whoa, I think they've pulled the beck video off of YouTube.

That's too bad.

But I assure you, while maybe not up to snuff with some of Beck's past work, this was still a decent song...

Anyway, for more Beck stuff, check out his 56k modem-unfriendly web site (www.beck.com).
