Check back on Monday for news of a new doves remix and a Compilation put together by Jimi.
Until then, why not check out the new song from Broken Social Scene! Just released at their website as a free download, World Sick is a pretty special tune. They are big fans of doves too, really nice guys. Great to have them back.
Best seat in the house? Looks pretty good to me. Also there taking shots was Brendan Docherty. You can view his flickr gallery here.
If you were at Lincoln tonight, please let me know what happened. Likewise, if you are attending Leamington Wednesday night. Only a couple shows left, before we all bugger off for the holidays. Its hard to believe the year is almost over!

Next stop on the road for doves, will be the MTV studios for a live session on the 22nd. Then its off to Glastonbury for doves seventh appearance at the festival.
Venus Zine have posted a very positive review of the Chicago Vic Theater show:
Certainly, the band works very well together as a whole on stage. The backup vocals and catchy guitar rifts inspire compositions that can be bright and anthemic, even when the pedal effects create a beautiful distorted sense of reality. Friday night’s sold-out show at Chicago’s Vic Theater was no exception, and the layers and sense of texture the band brought out live were incredibly rich.
Further heightening the ethereality, the band used visual projections, which included a variety of scenes of Chicago, strips of endless road, and people dancing in a style somewhat reminiscent of the film director David Lynch. The effect was to create a sense of connection to the music as a whole versus the band members, who, at times, seemed to vanish into the backdrop.
