Today In Music News: Thurs July 29

After releasing three single, Diamond Rings is finally about ready to unleash his full-length album. It’ll hit the streets on October 26, being released on Secret City.

Are you a huge Tegan and Sara fan? Then you’ll likely want to pre-order this: a huge collection of all of their albums on vinyl.

David Bazan — of the now defunct Pedro the Lion — will be returning to Toronto on September 18th at Lee’s Palace. That means you still have time to grab his excellent record Bazan and get comfortable with his tunes before the show. Check the dates and a promo-video for Please Baby Please here.

The Flaming Lips performed on Letterman. Dave wasn’t quite sure what to make of them.

I’m sure you’ve heard by now that Kanye West is on twitter. Pitchfork has some information on West’s upcoming single and video Power. “Mr. West is seen standing imposingly with a heavy chain around his neck. As Mr. West raps the camera slowly zooms out in one continuous, unedited take to reveal him in a classical structure, surrounded by female attendants who are partly or entirely nude; some kneel before him on all fours, others wear devil horns and still others are suspended upside down from the ceiling.” Uhhhhhh, OK?

Jack White’s Third Man Records will be rereleasing the White Stripes’ first three albums on 180-gram vinyl. Yesssss.

Jens Lekman released a new song and you can download it for free.

The Wooden Sky and Yukon Blonde are touring together this fall, with stops all across Canada.

Also announcing tour dates is Broken Social Scene, who have padded out their road calendar impressively.
