t-minus 5 days…

May 13, 2010

The countdown is on. The paper chain has been made. T-minus 5 days until the musical reckoning that will be May 18th. Let me lay it out for you:

The reissue of the Rolling Stones’ masterpiece “Exile on Main Street”? May 18.

The Black Keys’ absolutely fantastic new “Brothers” album? May 18.

The lineup announcement for the Austin City Limits Music Festival? May 18.

Paper ChainTom Petty & the Heartbreakers original release date for Mojo was also May 18, but thankfully they spared my heart the certain explosion and pushed it back to June 15.  So now, with only five days to go I’d like to share a serious appetizer platter to tide you over.

Thanks to the good folks at NPR you can both stream the entire Black Keys album and preview some of the unreleased tracks that will come out on the Exile reissue. I strongly suggest you do both.

Find ways to busy yourselves for the next five days and I’ll see you back here on the 18th, armed with a shitload of exclamation points.
