Thus far, May is taking the cake for 2010 when it comes to music releases. Plenty of great releases this week from both new and veteran acts, including the fantastic Josh Ritter album, that is available for purchase on Amie Street for only $5. Yet even with all these excellent releases, my top two most anticipated releases of the year are yet to come.
We finally got official notice that the great Christopher Nolan will be giving us another edition to his brilliantly revamped Batman franchise. No word yet on who the villian will be. It’s gonna be hard to top the the previous two performances by Cillian Murphy and Heath Ledger.
Apparently Letterman has decided to get into the music business. His new record label is launching this summer with the release of their first signed band, Runner Runner. I’m curious to see what kind of impact this might have on Late Night and the music featured on the show.
On a more unfortunate note, it was announced just the other day that the recent acquisition of Lala by Apple, will result in the shutting down of the music streaming site. I’m pretty bummed, but hopefully it will lead to iTunes giving us more than a 30 second preview. Here is a site worth checking out as a possible replacement, My Friends and Music.
