Dear CoS Reader,
Welcome back! You likely spent Labor Day Weekend at the North Coast/Bumbershoot/ATP New York music festivals and/or a barbecue and/or watching re-runs of Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations and consequently missed some if not all the great content posted on Consequence of Sound during that time. Remember, vacations aren’t in our vocabulary. That’s why we came up with this handy recap.

— Nick Lowe announced his first full band tour this millennium.
— Kanye West shared “Devil in a New Address” for the latest edition of G.O.O.D. Friday.
