Things are coming up slowly as we get back into the swing of things, but just you wait. It’s ROCKtober, which means there’s something to see/do/listen to/write about basically every day. Until the impending barrage of pieces that will likely make your eyes bleed, I have a few snippets to tide you over.

I’m back to reviewing at Popdose. I recently gave Lilum, TV on the Radio and Passion Pit the royal treatment. All of which are worth reading about and listening to, for completely different reasons and in completely different ways. Interpret that as you will.

Much, much, much, much more to come. Really. I’ve got a CMJ pass this year. We’re all in trouble.

Don’t forget: Help represent for T-Sides on MySpace and Facebook. Help us help you, scratch our back and we’ll scratch yours, and all those other give and take maxims.
