That’s right, my little RSS feed from Pitchfork shocked the pants off of me this morning when I saw that there is a new Radiohead album out this Saturday! As in February 20, 2011.
They are doing sort of the same thing as they did with In Rainbows but this time the mp3 download has a set price of $9. Still very fair. The super deluxe physical album will come out later this spring, in May.
The album is called The King of Limbs and I know nothing about it. I’m just super excited! Here’s the album art.
Marina has a new video out. For site visitors who know me, Marina’s music may seem a bit off the spectrum of what I usually listen to. Well, you’re right, but look at her, she’s smoking hot! Also, she writes her own music, as far as I know, and I respect that. So yes, it’s quite poppy, but I don’t mind watching and listening. She’s got a pretty cool voice as well. So enjoy!
Röyksopp has a new album due out on September 13th, 2010. You can listen to it via stream right now over at Hype Machine or also at the bottom of this post.
Here’s how they describe the new album, which is a follow up to Junior, in their newsletter:
Senior is the introverted, dwelling and sometimes graceful counterpart to last year’s Junior: brim-full with dark secrets and distorted memories, insisting “I’m old, I’ve got experience…” Senior is furthermore an album about age, horses and being subdued, with devils breathing down your neck.
Each track is equally as important as its predecessor and successor. We feel that none of the tracks should be regarded outside of this context. Quite a “brave”/stupid thing to do in this day & age of iPods and cherrypicking, one might suggest. We couldn’t agree more – hell that’s even probably why we did it.
I thought I had posted about this dude before, but alas, I have not. This here fellow goes by the moniker “That 1 Guy.” He plays his homemade instrument that he dubbed The Magic Pipe. It’s this crazy contraption with metal piping and heavy duty joints with strings and amps and all kinds of doodads.
He is a solo act and performs incredible music with his magic pipe. Over the past decade or so, he had released a couple of albums, and they both had some cool songs on them like Butt Machine and Weasel Pot Pie, but neither compared to seeing him live. He just released a new album called Packs a Wallop that, I think, does a great job of bringing some of the feel of his live performances to a studio album. You can hear the whole album streaming right here!
I saw him in concert last year and my mind was blown. He is an all around performer. He is one of those people who just seems to be oozing with rhythm. He tours all over all the time, and is playing near me soon again. He puts on one of the most interesting and entertaining shows that you can see.
Here is a really cool video clip about him. It’s the highest quality video I’ve seen on him, and after it’s over, there will be some links to live performances if YouTube’s related videos thing works right. So enjoy, check out his album, and go see him in a show!
The Knife released a new album online today! I haven’t even listened to it yet! I’ve been spending too much time getting caught up on the Australian Open.
So here is the link to the new album, available to listen free streaming online and you can purchase the album there as well. Sorry for the horrible grammar today, I’m in a bit of a tight spot, gotta hurry!
The Eels have been busy lately! Their new album, End Times, was just released on Tuesday. This is their second album in only seven months, crazy! Hombre Lobo was their last album released in June of 2009. That album was rockin, this new one is quite a bit toned back from the sound of it. I haven’t got my hands on it yet, so I’m only able to speculate.
Here are a few videos that E has put up on YouTube. Enjoy!
