Studio Activity Vol.1
I am happy to report that Doves have been back in the studio recording. The latest recording session has yielded 5 new songs that could show up on there in progress 4th album. A working title that I hope they stick with is Kingdom of Rust and Jetstream. Like many Doves fans you may be wondering what's taking so long. Andy Williams has become a new dad and must be enjoying fatherhood. Congratulations.

Mercury Rev have been absent far too long in my opinion. I know it's only been 3 years since they released The Secret Migration but it feels like 5. There seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel. It was recently reported on the bands official site that they've been working on a new record somewhere in the Catskills all winter long. A late 2008 release date is on target. The band will play The End of the Road Festival in the UK on September 12th, 13th, and 14th.

You didn't think I'd miss the chance to give a Robert Pollard update did you? On June 3rd Robert Pollard will release his next album Off To Business on his new Guided By Voices Inc. Label. However the 1st release from GBV Inc. will be the Weartherman and Skin Goddess EP, a web only EP that will be a limited to 1000 CD's/500 12" LP's.

I didn't think I cared either until I heard a track from the last album on XM the other day. I think they still have plenty left in the tank imo.
