Musical Schmorgesborg: New Phish, Muse, Thom Yorke

“When it rains, it pours,” quipped some smart guy a long while back. It seems the same holds true for the music I enjoy. Starting last Tuesday (Sept. 8 ) and ending Sept. 21, three artists that I generally enjoy have/are releasing new material.

And to think, as of last week I thought the (recently ended) slew of RIAA lawsuits against MP3-downloadin’ tweens were the worst thing …

Radiohead wins Best Alternative Album Grammy for In Rainbows

The dynamic British superband’s 2007 In Rainbows won two Gramophone trophies, one for best alternative album and one for best boxed …
