Dum Dum Girls' I Will Be.
-- Pitchfork loves them some Dum Dum Girls. The Sub Pop artist's latest, I Will Be, fetched a flattering 8.2 out of 10. Download the mp3s "D.A.L." and "Jail La La".

-- Harpist, folkie, lady, Joanna Newsom plays The Moore on August 4.

-- NY Times pays Knoxville Tennessee's Big Ears Festival the highest possible compliment: "Deep audience crossover -- not just an artist deciding to mix disparate styles, or listeners who are basically one set of bohemians talking to another -- remains a different thing. It's still rare. That's where there's work to be done. I saw that kind of crossover over the weekend here at Big Ears, a festival of rock, classical and experimental music that has grown ambitiously in its second year."

-- Spinner: If you're a student who hates file-sharing just as much as the record industry, Warner Music is hiring an anti-piracy intern.
