A few noteworthy things have been happening lately and I thought I’d pop in and tell you about them.

Today Labrador Records announced that they’ve signed a new band: Det Vackra Livet. Now, before you say,’What the fu…’, let me interject. Det Vackra Livet consists of 2 members from Mary Onettes who wanted to create a project based upon their grandmothers’ memoirs and writings by Swedish/Finnish poet Claes Andersson. The result is a 15-song record(sung in Swedish) that is set to be released later this year, presumably. If you’re skeptical about the language barrier, listen to this first and honestly tell me that it matters. Once you do, I don’t you’ll care.

Viljan

Yesterday, Low announced a tour in support of their new album which will be their 3rd release under Sub Pop. The album entitled, Cmon, will feature 10 new songs including Try To Sleep, which is featured below. I mentioned Robert Plant covering a couple of their songs awhile back and apparently he got nominated for a Grammy for that album. I still don’t care about it, but hell, if he get one because of it, I’d like to think that they had a great deal to do with it. A Grammy by proxy is still a Grammy.

Try to Sleep

And it may be a bit premature to get excited for something that hasn’t even been recorded yet, but here we go… Cut Off Your Hands is beginning the recording of their new album today. Why so excited you ask? Well, after being absolutely floored by their debut EP and subsequent full-length, there are few things that I’ve anticipated more over the last couple of years. If you’re not familiar with them, take the time and listen to these samples… you’ll be glad you did.

I might be a little late to the party, but apparently Robert Plant decided to cover a couple of songs from Low on his new album. Now, I admit I could give a shit less about an aging rocker’s new album in any way, but when he makes such a unique choice as to cover songs by Low, I can’t help but applaud. I still don’t give a shit about anything Robert Plant does or even his take on their songs, but I am however a little more optimistic about the world in general. At least this might shed a bit of light on Low to all of Robert Plant’s elderly fans who may just go out and buy all of the CDs Low haven’t been able to sell since most people started downloading all of their music… and by most people I mean people under 35. Its a win-win really. So, congratulations Robert Plant. You’ve finally slightly made me notice you for a brief moment. More importantly, this news is preempted by the fact that not only will Low be reissuing their Christmas album on vinyl, but they’ll also be touring in promotion of it. They’ll also be releasing a new record on Sub Pop sometime in 2011… Lets just hope its better than their last release, Drums And Guns. But one thing is for certain: It’ll be much better than anything Robert Plant puts out.

Tour Dates:

December 10th: Seattle, WA : Tractor Tavern
December 11th: Portland, OR : Mississippi Studios
December 14th: San Francisco, CA : Great American Music Hall
December 15th: Los Angeles, CA : Spaceland
December 17th: Salt Lake City, UT : Kilby Court
December 18th: Denver, CO : Larimer Lounge
