This bit of pleasant and surprising news just reached the desk of Loudersoft, a couple of days late (the kiss of death in the blogosphere of course) but still fresh! We're thrilled to hear and announce that, according to quintronandmisspussycat.com, Quintron's new album will be released by Memphis's own Goner Records. Here's the "official info":
So....the secret is out and not secret any more. Major big time record label GONER RECORDS of Memphis TN, will put out the new Quintron record. We sincerely apologize to Colombia, Matador, Vice, and Time Warner for turning you down but the deal that ...

It's awkward, right? I just sit here and listen to new music and tell you what I dig and why. Usually, it's nothing more than I hear something and I just want to hear it over and over again for a while. I'm not a complicated dude, really. In the case of Ivan ColÃ³n, I'm thrilled in the discovery of another wonderful little song that is just peeking up over the ground. You see, there's welcome hints of Donovan and Sufjan Stevens shining through every note of the song "Gabriel". I don't mind that ...
I normally shy away from reviews of artists whose sound follows so clearly in the paths of (and occasionally closely resembles) those of others whom I enjoy -- namely Bruce Springsteen, Conor Oberst, Bob Dylan, Billy Bragg, Damien Rice and the like. I was sent a press reminder about David Ford's terrific release Songs For The Road and had a chance to listen through the album. While I was listening I was stopped dead in my tracks by the next-to-last song on the record, entitled "Requiem" -- a completely appropriate companion to the annals of historically great protest ...
"JUST SAY THIS OUT LOUD IN A ROOM FULL OF PEOPLE, 'KANYE DOESN'T CARE ABOUT GIVING A GOOD PERFORMANCE.' CAN ANYONE HONESTLY SAY THAT ?????????"
To the best of my knowledge, nobody with any sense is ever going to say that, and for the record I'm pretty sure Kanye West wants to give the best performance every time he takes the stage. Being on top of the world of music, there's nothing but people trying to come down on you and, and people will take any opportunity to lash out at you when you're flying high. ...
So listen, Ye. First off, I would bet you don't read blogs and, most likely, you don't read mine. That's okay with me. I am just another fucking fan out there who lost his cool after being up all night. I was tired and cranky last week. I want to apologize for being a dick. I admit that my comments were pretty harsh on you about what went down at Bonnaroo. I sent my Idolator update on the morning after it happened, four or five hours sleep after the fact, so I was ...
Aimee Mann's new album is being hailed by some as "a masterpiece" and I'm hard-pressed to disagree. Have you ever wanted a chance to sing with someone as awesome as Aimee Mann on stage? There's still time to make a video of you singing her new single "Freeway" and submitting it to the Aimee Mann Freeway Contest on YouTube. Visit http://aimeemann.com/freewaycontest/ for further details.
To prove how easy it is, I made this in just a few minutes. It speaks for itself, so I won't try. What is there to be scared of? Give it ...
The next time one of your blogger friends tells you that "blogging aint easy", take their word for it and give them a hug. From time to time, we need hugs to keep us focused on doing what we do -- delivering the goods to all of you music fans out there.
In answer to the questions posed by three of our readers, I'll attempt to make an answer by sort-of not answering directly. "We're working on it", is the most honest answer to the question at hand. We have been working with the wonderful people at Idolator ...
I don't normally post these but this record actually isn't too bad. I mean I probably wouldn't buy it personally but you'll probably dig it, right? I think Creaky Boards Coldplay have a fairly original take on music from time to time.
