There won't be a Weekly Whathaveyou due to a time constraint; half-day at work is about to end, and I'm heading up to Columbia to see opening day of the National Champion South Carolina Gamecocks baseball season.
But just a few release notes: Obviously, everyone's heard about the new Radiohead album. In fact, I'll be listening to it on my way to Columbia. While the digital version comes out today, the big packaged version comes out in May. THEREFORE, I declare it a contestant in the 2nd Indie Music MAYhem. Woohoo!
Also, as the poll (which ends today, vote fast!) speculated, Death Cab for Cutie will release its next album on May 31, which means it's barely a contestant, unless the release date gets pushed back--something that occurs pretty regularly. So we'll see if they stick around for the showdown. But as it stands, we've got a pretty good contest brewing.
Have a great weekend,
