1. Sufjan Stevens has come out saying that his plan to write an album for each state was a result of him becoming a “cliche” and in looking back on the project idea he has claimed that it is now a “joke”. This is after he released “Illinoise” in 2005 and “Greetings from Michigan: The Great Lake State” in 2003. He would go on to say the project seemed a bit silly. via (Paste Magazine)
3. In what seems to be a growing trend among band front men, Bloc Party‘s Kele Okereke has announce plans to release a solo album while the band is still on hiatus. Complete detalis on the record are yet to be released.via (NME)

The Love Language will be in the studio today at 2pm to do an interview and a few live songs. They are playing in Raleigh tomorrow, Saturday May 9, at The Pour House along with other Raleigh bands Whatever Brains and Gross Ghost. The line-up features a lo-fi cloud of Raleigh, audible debauchery.
Quick facts about each act:
Gross Ghost- This is Mike Dillon’s new project. If you live in Raleigh or Chapel Hill you likely know who he is.
Whatever Brains- These guys recently played WKNC’s Local Beer Local Band in March and were recently, as I like to say, “shopped,” or as others, including The Indy, say kind of “picked up” by Matador Records.
The Love Languge- Remember the band The Capulets who graced Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill with their infectious pop lyrics and handsome faces about four summers ago? I do (eek, for being older than most other DJs). Stu McLamb, a Capulet, went on to form The Love Language with two other Capulets and now, well now The Love Language is infecting the music scene on a national level, including a bit in Spin magazine.
