Pit Er Pat Announces New Album

Pit Er Pat isn't afraid to experiment. Over the course of three albums, an EP, and a 12" all hyped between 2004 and 2007, the Chicago-based trio has constantly dabbled in numerous musical styles, disparate rhythms, and unusual melodies. 2008 finds them comfortably trekking the same course with the forthcoming release of High Time, on their longtime home at Thrill Jockey.

Does It Offend You, Yeah? Adds Dates

Their name is still ridiculous, but U.K.-based trio Does It Offend You, Yeah? is moving steadily towards the center of the indie dance-rock scene, with a much jabbered-about Jimmy Kimmel Live appearance last week and a fresh batch of tour dates just announced. The band will first hit the road with Bloc Party for a previously mentioned set of dates before hopping the pond to tour with Nine Inch Nails. Catch the boys and Mr. Reznor in one of these cities:

Serena-Maneesh Announce Double Album

Serena-Maneesh lead singer Emil Nikolaisen was once quoted in XLR8R as saying, "every song should have a personality and an upbringing. They're like kids."
