    • Phish
    • This quasi-concept album (the only of its kind) from these Vermonters finally showcased their ability to convey a message with a studio album, whereas previously they only succeeded in doing so live.
  • The Life Pursuit

    • 8 out of 10
    • Belle & Sebastian
    • The Life Pursuit is a sort of Reeses Peanut Butter Cup. You get Belle & Sebastian's peanut butter (its wistful, often irresistible pop) dipped in a 'Have A Nice Day!' and glam 70s chocol

  • Supernature

    • 10 out of 10
    • Goldfrapp
    • On their latest CD, Supernature, Goldfrapp has put together a successful mix of 1980-era New Romanticism, German cabaret, and T. Rex glam that leaves you riveted even through the album's lulls. It's a great amalgam that sounds current without sounding at all dated.

Mobile Twitter Roundup

Appleis App Store for the iPhone and iPod touch has been open for only a few hours, but it is already offering over 500 applications, and several of those are clients for the popular social Web service Twitter.

Twitterific The Icon Factoryis Twitterific is a popular Mac OS X desktop application, and now itis available for the iPhone and iPod touch. It lets users display and post messages, post photos, includes a mini-browser for showing links, offers access to user profiles, and lets you switch the interface for left handed use.

The free version displays an occasional ad inline and includes a single interface theme. The US$9.99 version removes the advertisements and includes an extra theme.

Twittelator Twittelator from Big Stone Phone and Stone Design lets you post tweets and photos, and browse tweets just like Twitterific, but it also includes the ability post a map and photo of your location. Big Stone Phone said this is feature lets users alert their friends when they are in trouble or need help.


Twittelator is free, and like all titles available at the App Store requires iPhone or iPod Software 2.0 or higher.

ShoZu ShoZuis self-named application takes a broader look at your social Web surfing by letting users access Twitter along with other sites like Flickr, Facebook, Photobucket, and Typepad. It lets you view and post entries, create blog posts, and more. ShoZu is free.

TypePad TypePad from Six Apart is a mobile blogging application that supports to TypePad blogging service. It can automatically tweet to let your followers know you have new posts, which can be a big help if you are blogging on the go since the iPhone and iPod touch still donit have a cut-and-paste feature to let you easily insert URLs in your tweets. Like the other Twitter-compatible apps, itis free.

The popularity of social networking site like Twitter coupled with the already strong interest in Appleis App Store mean we are likely to see even more applications like these in the coming weeks.
