Links for 8.4.08: Lollapalooza sounds, Walkmen recordings, $.03 cent tunes…

*Listen: The Walkmen have recorded a Daytrotter session. OF COVERS. [music slut]

*Downloads: Largehearted Boy has started a page aggregating downloads from Lollapalooza 2008. If you were too old to go. Also: Here are some videos of Wilco playing Lollapalooza.

*Keyboards: Mental Floss has collected 5 legendary musical keyboards, including the Mellotron and the Minimoog.

*Television: Fleet Foxes is on Letterman tonight. Or is that Fleet Foxes are on Letterman tonight? Whatever it is, it will be hippie. [three imaginary girls]

*Digital strategy: One Chinese music platform, Wawawa, is selling tracks at $.03 apiece to combat piracy. Too expensive? Variety has a little more on the plan. [wiredset]

*Goodbye: Social.fm has closed. I hate most of them. There are a lot of social media sites out there. That is all I will say about the situation at present.

*Hardware: Skullcandy has made an iPod dock that looks like a pipe.

*Local: If you aren’t drinking Prairie Vodka, organic and packed in corn, you need to order yourself a Prairie+Tonic. Or a prairie fire. Except made with vodka. OK; I’m done. (I was in no way coerced – positively or negatively to post this – I happen to love corn kernels as packaging. Thank you.) [minnpost, though about a week after it hit my inbox from 3 other sources…]
