Published Jun 20, 2009Following another five days of tireless news gathering, we have reached the end of the work week and, as always, assembled another link-friendly news bundle to guide you through it all.
Topping the news heap this time 'round, we first have a nice pleasant surprise: Feist rejoining her old band mates in Broken Social Scene for an unscheduled appearance at NXNE in Toronto. We were there. We saw it, and it seriously did happen. Hell, we even reviewed it.
Next there was a double dose of ol' Trent Reznor, who kicked off the week by calling Bonnaroo Nine Inch Nails' last U.S. show ever and ended it by saying Grizzly Bear makes him "feel irrelevant."
Also making the headlines this week, we had the Polaris Music Prize revealing its long list, Calgary music fest Sled Island getting folks' panties in a knot over not censoring Holy Fuck's name on its posters, and director David Lynch tearing the music industry a new one.
And, last but certainly not least, we found out on Friday that Arcade Fire are finally done their score for filmmaker Richard Kelly's The Box. There's apparently 80 minutes worth of new material and, well, we're pretty pumped about it.
