New Music: Nine Inch Nails and Coldplay

New aingles by NIN and Coldplay are surfacing this week. Trent and Co's new track is called "Discipline", and it's from their next album which doesn't seem to have a title yet (if you downloaded the song from their official site, the ID3 album label reads "?"). After "Year Zero" and "Ghosts", it's a little surprising how much more accessible this track is, but the essential DNA of NIN is still all there.

Also, the first single from Coldplay's "Viva La Vida" is out. It's called "Violet Hill" and it's 10 degrees to the left of being exactly what you'd expect from them. They're trying to stretch, but not very far. The note-lacking guitar solo proves that they're outside their comfort zone, but they got a lot of potential here to work with.
