[News] The Kills Complete Fourth Album

We haven't had much if any new material from Jamie Hince and Alison Moshart since 2008's album Midnight Boom. I'm not complaining too much mind, we did have the beutiful musings of The Dead Weather in their absence. That kept my Moshart fix just about managable but yesterday (January 6th) we got news from Alison that the 4th album from The Kills was finished! Posting the above picture on their Facebook Page, she stated the following:

"Well hello friends. Happy new year to all of you! I write to you from Michigan on a snowy-ish evening. With Christmas and New Years festivities seemingly over, a flight early in the morning beckons and I have good news! The 4th Kills album is FINISHED! RECORDED+MIXED+MASTERED and all that jazz. So here’s to a new year and a new record!!! More announcements will be made very very soon xxx A"

More news on the release date and all that jazz when we have it! Keep your eyes peeled and keep checking back.

[Download] Shad x Dallas Green - "Live Forever"

Yesterday CoS premiered a brand new track from Dallas Green, the guy behind City and Colour and the non screamer in Alexisonfire, and Canadian Hip Hop artist Shad. Titled "Live Forever", it's a pretty deep track that see's Dallas' vox being used nicely in the Chorus against the back drop of Shad's rapping verses. Put together the result is very nice and I must say I like it. This is the first track from the pair's “Two Songs” 12-inch vinyl which will benefit Skate4Cancer. Head on over to Consequence of Sound to download the track and listen to it for yourself.

[SKOA Presents] The 25 Best Albums of 2010: 5-1

Tied for 5. Air - Love 2 [Buy CD
I had approached this record with caution because Pocket Symphony had fallen so flat of what I expected to follow up an album like Talkie Walkie from a band as epic as Air. Thankfully, what we got this time around was an album that picked up right where TW left off. Love 2 is an album that you love to love. It's romantic and dreamy in all the good ways that TW was but takes it to the next level. You will find your mind drifting away to a better place courtesy of songs like "Sing Sang Sung", "So Light Is Her Footfall" and "Do The Joy". This French duo have truly mastered weaving wispy electronic melodies into a breathtaking 46 minutes of pure bliss. - Kibbe
