Updates, Break-Ups And The Sad Truth About CD-Shops…

Music Of The Moment Hot Tracks has finally been updated. This time, you can find these tracks amongst many others:

It’s breakup-time once again; this time it’s British indie-rock-band Mohair that has called it a day. I’ve only recently discovered the band, but their song End Of The Line was one of my favourite tunes this year so far, and so it’s a bit sad that there won’t be any more music from Mohair. Read the full statement here.

Mohair – End Of The Line (MP3)

Talking about the end of the line: Blog-buddy Morten is currently in London, and I really envy him for that. But it really saddens me what we have found out about the record shops there… read his posting here for the sad truth! 😦

Nelly Furtado – All Good Things Come To An End (MP3)
David & The Citizens – The End (MP3)
Incubus – Sick Sad Little World (MP3)
Black Heart Procession – A Truth Quietly Told (MP3)
