Burning up for your love

1. We've been wary ever since the casting was announced, but fuck it: OTD is offically really fucking stoked for the Johnny Cash bio-pic. If we were a different sort of blog, we might be posting American Recordings outtakes right now.

2. Madonna fans rejoice: someone leaked her new single, "Hung Up." Elliott Smith fans rejoice: someone leaked an album's worth of Basement Tapes. Darkness fans rejoice: someone leaked the title track to their new album. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah fans rejoice: good quality live recordings of four new songs have surfaced. Indieblogheaven has word of a new song featured on the Wilco live album. Music for Robots discusses the Tiga remix of LCD Soundsystem's "Tribulations." Said the Gramophone posted a Junior Kimbrough tune, plus the Fiery Furnaces cover of it. Gorilla V. Bear springs a track from the new album by Animal Collective/Devendra Banhart muse Vashti Bunyan. Boing Boing, a blog after our own heart, has been posting a series on Malaysian black metal -- great stuff.

3. In this Thursday's paper, the Phoenix reunites Liz Phair with the Boston musician to whom she claims she owes her career. In the meantime, there's this from the Times: "There's a lot of regret on this record," said Ms. Phair, who noted that the Tex-Mex-flavored ballad "Table for One" was inspired by the alcoholism of a relative. "It's about coming to terms with things, even if that means accepting that I've failed."
