The General Specific

- 2011 is shaping up to be the year of My Morning Jacket. In the past week, the band have announced a Circuital release show in their hometown of Louisville (I got tickets!), they released a killer new song, as well as the tracking listening to their aforementioned upcoming album, and it was also announced this week that they will be headlining a night at this year's Lollapalooza. Can it please be May 31st now?

- A great batch of artists including Paul McCartney, The Black Keys, The Stroke's Julian Casablancas, and, yes, My Morning Jacket, have been tapped to record a Buddy Holly tribute album.

- Radiohead's newspaper album for The King of Limbs has been released early.

- Ryan Adams debuted new songs last week in Los Angeles when he opened for Emmylou Harris. Oh, and it was a surprise, too.

- Jeff Tweedy shed a little light on Wilco's highly anticipated eighth LP, tentatively titled Get Well Soon Everybody.

- The Beasties Boys' Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 2 can now be streamed.

Check back next week!
