Radiohead has been covering Neil Young songs for quite some time including performing Young’s After the Gold Rush at the 2002 Bridge School Benefit on the piano that Young originally recorded the song on.
The lovely Neko Case has lent her voice on many projects over the past few years. The Dodos connected with Neko after opening for The New Pornographers during their tour last year. (Ex-Wallfower Jakob Dylan owes her at least a few cups of coffee after helping on his latest effort.) Neko sings on nearly half of this upcoming LP from The Dodos titled, No Color and has shared her favorite cut from the disc with her twitter followers.
Call it post-rock or just good ol’ shoegaze, albeit with a experimental flair. Either way, San Francisco’s The Soft Moon has one eye on the future while the other searches for new ways to zigzag between darkwave and EBM (electronic body music).
On their self-titled album, the band bring the melodrama of Bauhaus, the ache of Joy Division, and its very own wit and talent to richly dark depths. Moody, brooding, and visceral, it’s like discovering a long-lost recording.
These guys have done quite a lot over the past few months. From producing G. Love’s album, Fixin’ To Die, to performing on stage at the GRAMMYs with Bob Dylan & Mumford & Sons — as a thank you to their fans, The Avett Brothers are offering a free download of “Paranoia in B Flat Major.”
The disc will be released April 26 on Merge, but you can listen and download “Diamond Mine” from the forthcoming LP below. Let us know what you think of the track.
Cold enough for you? It seems like everyone has been greeted with some aggressive winds and chilly rains. Luckily, the winter weather sent Chuck Inglish and Mikey Rocks aka The Cool Kids running to their studio to work on their first debut full-length When Fish Ride Bicycles released sometime in Spring of 2011. Until then, the Chicago rap duo is offering their first single “Bundle Up” to keep you warm during these blustery days and nights.
Elements of My Morning Jacket‘s most frenetic moments merge with the National‘s melancholy yet anthemic choruses about love, and paranoia as well as contain hints of Band of Horses alt-country stylings. The result? It all collides into this brilliant synergy from one song to the next.
Lil Jon continues to make crunky sonic cocktails. He recently hooked up with Atlanta rapper Alonzo Mathis aka Gorilla Zone to lay over his aggressive lyrics with the trademark cries of “What!” sprinkled throughout, but the star of the show is the crushing production from DJ Montay, who’s known for his production work with DJ UNK, and Flo Rida‘s record-breaking single “Low.” One thing is for sure, too, Gorilla Zone’s “Twisted” will shake and reverberate sound systems worldwide.
He’s a super-veteran of the rave, a bald-headed emo vegan, and loves giving music away, as evidenced by starting mobygratis.com. Starting today you can pick up a three song E.P. called Be The One in exchange for your email address. It contains three songs: “Be The One,” “Sevastopol” and “Victoria Lucas” and is also mixed by Ken Thomas (Sigur Ros, M83), who also collaborated with Moby on Wait for Me. The result is earthy and melodic with that incomparable Moby touch.
