Nine Inch Nails "Survivalism" Live

Link from numerous NIN websites. Apparently this video was filmed at the Barcelona concert; the quality is so good I suspect that the band "leaked" it.

Finetune -- Full-Length Versions of Your Favorite Songs

Finetune is a great new site that is essentially a do-it-yourself radio station. Finetune is sort of like a free version of iTunes' iMix feature -- on it, you can create playlists (minimum of 45 songs and 15 different artists) and share your good taste (or not so good taste!) with the world.

Check out a playlist I put together featuring many of the artists I have written about here:

Music News and Notes -- Peter Bjorn and John, iTunes' discovery The Fratellis, James Morrison and Everblue

My overplayed Muse, Nine Inch Nails and Red Hot Chili Peppers cds are about to get a rest -- I have recently heard some great new music that will be getting major airplay in my space.

Peter Bjorn and John: This Swedish trio is about to hit it big with their release "Writer's Block", due for release in the U.S. Feb. 6. Inventive, original, and fresh. PBJ's myspace Additional streaming songs can be found at the PBJ website, just click on the music player: PBJ website.

James Morrison: Captivating blue-eyed soul from the U.K. Already a best-seller in England, Morrison's debut CD "Undiscovered" will be released in the U.S. March 13, 2007. Visit James Morrison's U.K. webpage for music and video downloads.

The Fratellis: Yet another British import, the Fratellis boast some of the most infectious tunes since Franz Ferdinand's debut; reminds me of The Streets with a twist of early Clash. Just try to listen to "The Guttrati" on their myspace page without smiling. In fact, the Fratelli's song "Flathead" is featured in the newest iPod ads. This is another album set for a March 13 release.

Everblue: Although based in Burbank, California, this quartet's debut cd conjures up images of a southern rock band. Very melodic, bluesy songs, including the first single, "Baby's Lullaby", that undoubtedly will surface on an AOR station near you. Right now, the album is only available on cdbaby, but it will soon be for sale on iTunes and Amazon. In the meantime, sample the music at Everblue's myspace page.

Comets on Fire: Aptly described by the Los Angeles Times as what might happen if "the Allman Brothers met Queens of the Stone Age over at the Stooges house", this rock band modernizes old-fashioned hardcore acid rock. album info. Their newest album, "Avatar" is available on Amazon.

Rage Against the Machine: I can't wait to see the reunited Rage Against the Machine play Coachella.
