Earlier this week a cryptic countdown appeared on The Killers website with the pot of gold at the end of the tunnel being the news that oft-winged frontman Brandon Flowers will be releasing a solo album which will be "coming soon". No other details are available as of yet so essentially there was a countdown for news that is coming soon, hooray. You can head over to his new solo site to sign up for the latest updates on the new solo album while a loop of what is presumably some new music plays in the background. [via CoS]
Here is the rather impressive list of bands that will be on the upcoming Twilight: New Moon soundtrack. Keep in mind this is an abstinence movie for girls about vampires.

Pretty impressive right? Of course you are already familiar with Meet Me On The Equinox, and you've had your share of Thom Yorke recently, what are your thoughts on the album that appears to be shaping up as this fall's [amazon B001KVW574], on which SHA favorites and New Moon soundtrack participants Grizzly Bear and Bon Iver also appeared. The soundtrack is set for an October 20th release, the movie a month later, Nov 20.
...to get a "dope jam going" - Kanye's words, not mine.
Answer: One... Two... Three - THREE (said in the tone of the wise Tootsie Pop owl).
I'm surprised all that ego fit into one room. Bravo Brandon - "fun" shirt and congratulations on taking another step towards securing your place as someone I'll never dream of sleeping with. I'm sure your heart is breaking.
I know The Killers are popular, and I have enjoyed many of their songs in my day - but someone needs to let Brandon Flowers know that he is not the cat's pajamas. If allowed the platform, I'd gladly volunteer to fill that role. Bravo, Brandon. You've uber douched yourself yet again.
"I don't mean it in a bad way but I think Kurt Cobain and grunge took the fun out of rock and roll."

I guess from where BFlowers is from, "fun" has an different definition. Look how "fun" his blazer is. I wonder if he's yet figured out if he's human or dancer...
So many questions. Why are you doing this to your band? Isn't it bad enough that you drive me to the brink of insanity every time you ask me if I'm human or dancer, yet get stuck in my head for long periods of time like some karmic punishment? And to the rest of the band, why are you standing for this? You cannot tell me a little bit of you doesn't die inside every time you see the clips from your new video. What do you think of Brandon Flowers feathery pads?
