Today In Music News: Fri Aug 26

Mos Def is being sued for first postponing, then cancelling his appearance at a Toronto show with DOOM.

The Libertines held a comeback gig, and Pete Doherty wasn’t the one who got headlines the next day for acting a fool. Weird, huh?

Spinner has a killer selection of albums up right now to stream in their Listening Party section of the site. If I were you, I’d be checking out the excellent and underrated Grass Widow album, Les Savy Fav, Ra Ra Riot, Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan, and also all three (!) of the Eels “trilogy” (including his brand new record Tomorrow Morning). What are you waiting for?

Spin Magazine has compiled a list of the most notable albums of this fall, including Superchunk, Interpol and Chromeo.

Matt & Kim have announced they will have a new record out on November 2nd, and it will be called Sidewalks.

Apple will be announcing updates to their iPod line of products on September 1, and there’s speculation that they’ll show off a new cloud-based music service that day as well.

If you pre-order the new No Age album from Sub Pop, you get a free No Age notepad! That’s fun.

Comedy albums count as music news right? Why not! The State will be releasing their once-lost album Comedy for Gracious Living on September 21st. The defunct group — which featured now-popular members like David Wain, Michael Showalter, Thomas Lennon, Ken Marino and more — recorded the album in the ’90s for Warner Brothers but it never saw the light of day. How’s that for a delay?

The Moon and Antarctica is ten years old now.
