Just about the only good thing about the Tron reboot was Daft Punk's brilliant score... Probably one of the best of the year... I really do think The Social Network's score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross will win the Oscar, and I think it's a great score but Tron definitely deserved to be nominated, it was perfect for the film, almost as if a DJ (or two) were scoring the film live...
The noms are as follows:
- How to Train Your Dragon
- The King's Speech
- 127 Hours
- The Social Network

The Strokes Confirm Release Date for New Record
Strokes' bassist Nikolai Fraiture has confirmed a recently speculated rumor concerning the release date of the Strokes' fourth full-length by posting on his private Facebook page: "Yes! You read right... March 22nd!! Looking forward to playing the new songs live." And we have confirmed that yes, it's true: the fourth Strokes album will come out March 22 in the U.S. via RCA.
I remember when "Is This It" first came out, I was a bit hesitant to jump on the Strokes buzzwagon, but then it became pretty much the only album I listened to for a long period of time, and I think the best album of the 00's. They went on to release 2 more great discs (neither quite as life changing as the first,) as well as great solo projects from every member of the group, so I am excited to hear what they have come up with for their latest (and seemingly final?) disc.

I'm obsessed with the "unofficial" video for "Crime Pays" from Brooklyn's own Bear Hands... No psychedelics necessary, but I also assume they may enhance viewing pleasure, or the combo could quite possible result in an insane asylum stay.. Either way - win/win. You look like you could use a break... I know I could...

One of my personal favorites, The Kills will finally be gracing us with a new album. In the last 3 years singer Allison Mosshart was busy fronting Dead Weather with Jack White, while guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Jamie Hince was busy canoodling with Kate Moss...While I think Dead Weather is aiiiight, and sleeping with supermodels has it's benefits, I LOVE THE KILLS, and they put on a fantastic live show (especially for a duo) so I'm glad to hear that they have found the time to record a new album, here are the details from their website:
