September 1: VHS or Beta? Frankly, wed choose NetFlix, but the Kentucky dance-rock trio who sport this moniker have released their third album, Bring on the Comets, a hook-soaked record of chunky guitar riffs, danceable disco grooves, and anthemic choruses. We look forward to the bands promised underground remixes of the apocalyptic, New Orderlike track Burn It All Down.
September 2: Bless the bigwigs at HBO for renewing two of our favorite series, slick sausage-fest Entourage and quirky musicomedy Flight of the Conchords, for next season.
