Paul Westerberg Releases 7-Inch as Mr. F

I bought this despite the whole Nimbit thing. 


Per a news update on Man Without Ties (via Slicing Up Eyeballs), former Replacements frontman Paul Westerberg’s latest self-release, a 7-inch vinyl record featuring new songs “This Machine” and “Foolish Hand Shake” with a bonus digital download of “Grandpaboy’s Last Stand,” is available to order now at Nimbit Music. While the origin of Westerberg’s latest moniker, Mr. F., is unclear (Arrested Development? The Letter People?), this 3-song effort might only be a teaser for more upcoming Mr. F releases, as the cover art below cryptically reveals that something called “Son of a Depression” is on the way, as well.

Supplies are limited and only one copy per person is allowed, so, if interested, order the 7-inch for $8 + shipping thataway before they’re gone.

KANYE WEST – says he dealt with the media scrutiny after the MTV/Taylor Swift incident by leaving the country. He spent 2 months in Japan and Rome, then moved to Hawaii for 6 months. By comparison, I’m guessing Tupac would have grabbed her titties and pointed a gun at everyone in the crowd who boo’d. Hey Kanye. Stop being such a fag.

I dig this quite a bit. 


The Streets Drop New Video: “Trust Me”

The Streets mastermind Mike Skinner’s Twitter feed was one of the best musician accounts to follow in 2009, particularly during the spring when the British rapper handed out numerous free singles to followers. Out of the blue, however, updates went silent come October… until now: One year to the date since his last post, Skinner has returned with a new video to one of those ‘09 jams, “Trust Me,” and a revamped website, complete with a cryptic 101-day countdown clock. New LP due for early ‘11? Quite possibly. Until then, enjoy the new video above.
