News I can use. Maybe not you. I wouldn't know.

Today is a particularly good day for the newswire at Pitchfork. Even funnier than usual, and lots of stuff I am very glad to hear...Hot Hot Heat is working on a new album...Blur is working on a new EP...Damon Albarn is making noises about Graham Coxon possibly rejoining the band (though considering how good Think Tank is without him, it's not the end of the world if that doesn't happen)...Gorillaz are also working on a second album...and fucking Damon Albarn is going to be recording with Fela Kuti's Africa 70 Orchestra for Christ's sake. I think Damon Albarn may just have been promoted to the position of Musician I Am Most Painfully Envious Of.

There is also a news item about the Detachment Kit, a band I have never listened to, but who make me disoriented every time I see their name, because it is so reminiscent of the Dismemberment Plan.
