Elsewhere, 2/27

James Cameron — yes, that James Cameron — claims to have conclusive evidence that a tomb discovered in Jerusalem in 1980 is, in fact, the tomb of Jesus Christ and his family. The Discovery Channel will be airing a special on March 4 to reveal the, um, truth. Which, if it’s anything like their previous specials, will contain a wee bit of insight and then proceed to milk the controversy for all its worth. I wonder, could I possibly be more skeptical of the whole affair? And I’m not the only one — other scholars are calling “B.S.” on Cameron’s little enterprise.

Pitchfork gives the new Do Make Say Think album a 7.8: “Unlike their early work, with its abrasive tangents, their fifth album is fairly seamless — it gives more and demands less from the listener, and marks DMST as a band more invested in confidently honing and perfecting their idiom than in pushing their own boundaries.”

NME is hosting “the worldwide exclusive listening post” for The Arcade Fire’s Neon Bible (login required).
