10K Islands Music Mix Volume II - Memorial Day

We're back with another mix. Last edition was for SXSW and caused a lot of bands to get signed to lucrative major label record deals with large cash signing bonuses and complete artistic control on all future projects. Now we've got one for a beautiful Memorial Day Weekend. Summer is here which means pig roasts, clam bakes, crab boils, icing bros, oyster/champagne parties, BBQ's etc.

ANR Gear Stolen In Montreal

ANR + MillionYoung had their van broken into 2 nights ago in Montreal. Passport (Michael John Dewey Hancock), sensitive documents and a laptop (black MAC Book Pro) were stolen. If you have any information on this please email 10Kislands@gmail.com
Above shot of renewed passports taken before tour.

Tonight's MillionYoung + ANR show in Detroit is CANCELLED. Tour will resume tomorrow in Chicago.

For bands going thru Montreal, beware. It seems like there is a pretty tight criminal ring set up with anarchists who wash cars during the day and rob vans at night, using lithium battery detectors to find iPods, computers, GPS's, etc...

I Can't Hear You

Great article from The New York Times regarding sound quality of music today. The effects of technology and ease of procurement versus creating a listening experience.
Plains is considering releasing an alternate version of the debut album (coming this summer!) availble in 5.1, could be dope surround sound experience.
