Major Label Monkeys

If you ever doubted that ADA was truly independent of Warner Brothers, here's proof that ADA's parent organization sometimes racketeers the unit shifters: The Arctic Monkeys' new album, Favourite Worst Nightmare, will not be released on Domino Records, as planned, but is now a late inning change to Warner Brothers Records.

Translation: Less indie stores will sell it, and if they do, it'll cost more (think new Modest Mouse price); and more chains will have it, where it'll cost less.

Too bad for Domino. They did all the work, of course. I hope they cashed in.

The indies are dead. Long live the indies.
