Hurry up and wait.

Topic 1. Artic Monkeys

The Artic Monkeys cd PFM reviewed today doesn’t come out until Feb 21 in the US.

Topic 2 : Cloud Room

I knew the PFM story using Cloud Room as an example in "The Smash that Wasn't" would turn out to be a promotional tool for the band, I just wasn’t certain to what degree.

No shocker to anybody: It turns out press is press is press.

Looking at Sound Scan numbers this week verse last week Cloud Room’s full length sales rocketed up 64 % while the digital sale of their most popular song “Hey Now Now” jumped up a whopping 187% .
