In The Ticket today, you will find interviews with the Electric Picnic-bound MGMT and the rather awesome RSAG (hey, both bands take their names from initials – I love co-incidences like that). Brian Boyd goes mad about Twitter, Lauren Murphy has Music News about Record Store Day, the Electric Picnic and Vevo and my New Music picks are Lissie Trullie, The Postelles, Rural Alberta Advantage, She Keeps Bees, Enemies and Theophilus London.

CD of the Week comes from Depeche Mode and there are also reviews of new offerings from Adrian Crowley, Nite Jewel, Beautiful Unit, Richard Swift, Margaret Healy, The Ettes, Super Furry Animals, Cymbals Eat Guitars, Little Palace, Jerry Fish, Waylon Jennings (“Waylon Forever”, his final collection), Christy Moore and more.

There’s also a series of mini-features on how Recession 2.0 is hitting the music, games and movie industries (see under “Film Features”).

In the cineplex, there are reviews of Good, I Love You Man, In The Loop and Crank, High Voltage, plus an interview with new bromantic dude Paul Rudd.

The Ticket: better than all the rest.
