Wow. I'm guessing that this has already been bandied about the Interwebs, but I hadn't heard 'til this AM (courtesy of Vice's VBS.TV venture), and it's utterly blown me away: My Bloody Valentine have reportedly reunited and are doing a new album (check out Soft Focus - Kevin Shields Part 1). Holy crap. Granted, Shields has been promising to finally do the followup to 1991's (fucking incredible) Loveless for a decade-plus now, but this time he sounds pretty concrete about it, and he says all members of MBV are onboard for it.
And man...Shields looks weirdly like a shy, not-real-good-with-people college CompSci 101 prof. And Ian Svenonius sounds nothing like how I'd expected him to sound (never heard him talk before). Very weird.
While I'm at it, while Vice tends to annoy me more than not -- it always seems too self-lovingly trashy, to me, and some of their "journalistic" pieces on world affairs (Central American gangs, jungle guerrilas, etc.) come off like voyeuristic teenager crap -- they've got a good article up now on troops who've fled to Canada to avoid either going to or going back to Iraq. Well worth a read.
