MizMuze is baaack!  Still working on the plan for world domination, however, it has proven to be much more difficult to do now that I can’t blog during work hours.  OK, I’m stealing office time right now as MizMuze’s secret hiding place has yet to be discovered (mwahahaha!)…but before I’m caught, I better make this quick…

Check out the amazing lineup for this year’s 2011 Coachella Festival which will take place on 4.15, 4.16, 4.17 with headliners Kings of Leon the first night, Arcade Fire the second night, and Kanye West plus The Strokes the last night! 

BTW, MizMuze has heard your pleas to bring back the Song of the Day, so stayed tuned for the return of the SOTD very soon…

Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs Officially Drops Today August 3, 2010

The most anticipated album of the year is finally here!

Arcade Fire’s third LP, The Suburbs was released today.  The concept behind the album began in 2009, when front man Win Butler received a letter from his childhood friend from outside of Huston, Texas:

“He sent us a picture of him with his daughter on his shoulders at the mall around the corner from where we lived, and the combination of seeing this familiar place and seeing my friend with his child brought back a lot of feeling from that time. I found myself trying to remember the town that we grew up in and trying to retrace as much as I could remember.”

Pick up this amazing album, and for today only, Amazon is offering the MP3 format of The Suburbs for $3.99 and the CD for $7.99!!!  Click here to download and get the deets.
