    R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck has partnered up with Snow Patrol singer Gary Lightbody in a new project that they've dubbed Tired Pony. The project's debut album, The Place We Ran From, will be released through the cleverly named mom+pop records, which could be a not-so-thinly veiled reference to the indie record stores that get put out of business by monoliths and behemoths and loss leaders like Best Buy, on September 28.
    The Place We Ran From includes contributions from actress Zooey Deschanel, who also has her own music project, She and Him. The Editors' frontman Tom Smith also guests on the record. The Editors? Remember then. They were quite the hot, hip band for a minute. Nevertheless, check out the Buck/Lightbody band at www.tiredpony.com/us.

    Does this project sound interesting to you? What is your favorite R.E.M. song?
