old goths never die, it seems...

I heard a track from the new Bauhaus album over the past week. The best way I can describe it is Peter Murphy singing for Love and Rockets. Not sure how to feel about it, but I suppose it's best to wait for the whole thing first.

Speaking of, if you pre-order the new album through Newbury Comics, you can get the limited edition pint glass along with the CD. Same goes for Radiohead's In Rainbows. Who doesn't love dubiously-related promotional items?

In more new release news, Morrissey's new Greatest Hits disc gets its U.S. release on March 28, with an extra track on the bonus live disc. And there's talk of a proper new album in the fall. And with its own pint glass, doubtlessly.

Dreaming in Stereo mk. II

This Friday (Feb. 22) marks the final episode of DiS on Fridays. Starting March 2nd, the show will air Sundays 6-8 p.m. Along with the time change will be a new format as well. The show will focus on shoegaze, dream pop, ethereal, ambient, indie, some Britpop, and the occasional smattering of goth here and there. I'll definitely be going for a Sunday vibe, and will feature new artists in the aforementioned genres, as well as the classics we all know and love.

If anyone has any new/obscure acts to recommend (particularly Canadian ones), feel free to suggest away.

Feb. 15 - the inadvertent Valentine's set
