Whoah – the ‘mats are dominating the pre-weekend music news, which suggests pop nirvana is at hand. Not only are two vinyl boxes en route (Twin\Tone albums (Sorry Ma, Forgot To Take Out The Trash, Stink, Hootenanny, Let it Be; and Sire era LPs Tim, Pleased To Meet Me, Don’t Tell A Soul, All Shook Down), Billboard reports that the group has been in the studio recently in Waltham, Mass., and Minneapolis cutting “actual songs,” as manager Darren Hill told the magazine.
