144 Lineup Announced: Kanye West Headlines Austin City Limits In 2011


Coldplay

Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends was voted the Best Album in the 2008 XRT Listener Poll. In an interview with BBC Radio 1, Chris Martin said that Coldplay‘s upcoming fifth album is about “love, addiction, OCD, escape and working for someone you don’t like.” However he also added that the new album will have “a lot of uplifting stuff.” [Free Album Download]

My Morning Jacket

To celebrate the forthcoming album Circuital, My Morning Jacket is giving away the seven-minute title track for FREE! [Free MP3 Download]

Bright Eyes

The band’s latest album, The People’s Key, hit store shelves on Conor Oberst’s 31st birthday, but the singer-songwriter’s main musical outlet began over a decade earlier. [Album Review, Download]

Foster The People

Mark Foster, Mark Pontius and Cubbie Fink are Foster The People, and they’ve been humbled. These three musicians are blown away that they’ve made it from the local to the big leagues at a sprint-like pace. Why? It must be the music. And, a rabid fan base probably helps too.
