Notes on the Juno soundtrack

If you’re feeling execrable. I mean local. Well, “local.”

Outstanding movie/music blog The Playlist offers up a goldmine of info on the soundtrack for the Diablo Cody flick Juno, which stars, of course, Michael Cera.

Acts assembled for your listening pleasure include Cat Power, Belle and Sebastian (note this post’s killer lede), Sonic Youth, The Velvet Underground and etc. Also: Moldy Peaches.

To go to: Kimya Dawson’s livejournal and Diablo Cody’s blog [NSFW].

*SoundExchange gave up on trying to DRM stream-ripping out of existence, and made a deal with big internet broadcasters to cap per-channel fees. Still wrangling with smaller broadcasters, though… [via] Internet radio is effing exhausting!
*Followup: the inexplicable mania of 14-year-old YouTube viewers; not only is Avril Lavigne’s “Girlfriend” the most-viewed vid in the music category on YT (with over 50M views), the video now has over 133,000 comments.

*Vinyl: Whoa. ARG-like games were embedded on records back in the day?
*I posted the trailer for the Joy Division movie Control yesterday; here’s the soundtrack tracklist, from the ever-awesome Playlist.

*Live Nation wants to ditch Ticketmaster (and maybe lower concert prices?): the market likes the idea.
