Is he a fan? Let’s just say he was caught saying: “Someone may be going for a music Oscar here!”
Find out what Jack Black thinks of these British newcomers, plus listen to a full album stream of the band’s stunning debut record called Violet Cries slated for release February 8th, 2011 on Matador Records.
Legendary filmmaker David Lynch is blowing back into the scene with a couple new electronic singles–”Good Day Today” and its B-side “I Know,” a hypnotic, melodramatic blues number resembling what we heard on his production/vocal collaboration with Dangermouse & Sparklehorse on the album Dark Night of the Soul. Both of the new songs are dark and electronic from its outset, and they will see an official release on January 31 (Sunday Best Recordings).
Listen to both tracks, plus get a free MP3 of the original recording of “Good Day Today” and a remix by German electro-child, Alex Riddha aka Boys Noize.

Christopher Willits electronic music is atypical of most music released on Ann Arbor’s Ghostly International imprint — it’s more organic, unabashedly floaty and based around vocals rather than a chopped array of samples.

Iconic artists and Chicago natives Common, Lupe Fiasco, Jennifer Hudson, and No I.D. recently collaborated to record the track, “We Can Do It Now,” an ode to their hometown. The track is being featured in the Gatorade REPLAY series, where classic sports games that ended in controversy are replayed, in a somewhat crazy scheme to recreate history, by the original teams. Gatorade reunites the original teammates and provides them with an 8-week training program so they can get back in peak shape. The teams then replay their game to settle the score once and for all.
