A while ago, we got a very nice email from someone at Apple inviting us to publish a weekly podcast on iTunes. Since then, we’ve gotten a few requests to put our interview with Peter Hook on iTunes, but just haven’t taken the time.

It took a bit of work, but we’re finally ready to take our first shot at putting some of our interviews on iTunes.  You can listen to the interview below or you can download it via the iTunes store.  We’re committed to doing this on a weekly basis. We’ll put some of our older interviews out there in the next few weeks and we think you’ll enjoy them: Peter Hook, East Hundred, Living Things and Brendan Canty have all provided us with some great interviews and we’re anxious to share it on iTunes. We also have some scheduled in the new future that should provide some great material. PLEASE, subscribe to the podcast at the iTunes store so that we can continue to provide this as a service to our readers.

You can go to the iTunes Store, download the latest episode and subscribe to our weekly podcasts here: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=327728349

We listed Zee Avi as one of our favorite albums of 2009 thusfar and are still blown away by her voice and melodic abilities. Her cover of Morrissey’s ‘First of the Gang to Die’ got her noticed by the alternative crowd, but she is more than a great cover. We caught her on the phone (seemingly in an elevator…) in between an interview with Wired and AOL. Listen to the podcast here (or go to the iTunes store!) and here’s some terrific videos as well:
