Rooster Roundabout: This week’s music highlights
After weeks of teasing and enticing fans, Arcade Fire have now unleashed their first single from their upcoming double LP, Reflektor (out Oct. 29). The title track is given an extended treat as it has gotten not one, but two videos. One is an interactive video where the viewer can take part in the visual experience, while the other is a traditional video (no interaction there) that contains a lot of reflective surfaces.

DayBird - May 24th
1543 – Copernicus dies. He died the same year his major work was published, saving him from the outrage of religious leaders who later condemned his heliocentric view of the universe as heresy. By the 18th Century, the Copernican view of the solar system was almost universally accepted. Heliocentric, I like that.
