Break Me Gently

Bad luck for everyone scheduled for the first two weeks of the Doves North American tour next month including Coachella – as you’ve certainly heard, they’ve been cancelled because of Jimi Goodwin’s throat problems. Lucky for me Toronto is the second of the dates that will go on as planned. They’ve started rescheduling some of the west coast dates (More Cowbell has some details). Scheduled openers Mercury Rev are trying to schedule their own shows in the cancelled cities but will be back with Doves by the time that tour starts up in a couple weeks.

As consolation for those shut out, you can watch part 2 of that BBC feature on , including live performances of “There Goes The Fear” and “Black & White Town” (here’s part one), and the Live At Eden EP came out on Tuesday. I quite like the live footage from this BBC special, the band seems to have a lot more energy than when I saw them touring for Lost Souls, and there’s not a taped backing track in earshot.

Shitty buzz that Robyn Hitchcock has had to cancel his Canadian tour with The Sadies due to a foot injury. They hope to reschedule. And I just bought tickets!

The Kalamazoo Gazette and Columbus Alive both talk to Dave Gedge about the Wedding Present reunion.

And not to be outdone in the battle of Ohian music coverage, see’s their Wedding Present interview and raises them a Ryan Adams piece.

Hit the new Matador new update for mp3s from the forthcoming Laura Cantrell and New Pornographers records.

Billboard finds out what Nellie McKay is doing for her Summer vacation, besides preparing her sophomore album for a September release.

The move went about as well as I could have hoped, and in just over three hours yesterday I went from Morlock to Eloi. Still, it was (is) a pain in the ass and the place is a mess. I’ve managed to get it down from general chaos to individual piles of chaos, but I am exhausted from the effort. I am never moving again. I will die here, and when I do, I will insist that I am buried here. On the fifth floor. The people on the fourth can just suffer.
