– The cover art of the Strokes‘ debut album ‘Is This It’ and the Velvet Underground and Nico’s iconic self-titled disc are among those recreated with impressive detail using — of all things — socks on the mysterious new Tumblr Famous Album Covers Recreated With My Socks. Which sock cover art is your favorite?
It’s time to hit the road, Imagine Dragons fans. The Las Vegas indie rockers have mapped out a North American tour on the heels of the crossover success of their first single, ‘It’s Time,’ and just behind the release of their debut full-length album, ‘Night Visions,’ which drops on Sept. 4.
LCD Soundsystem‘s farewell documentary, ‘Shut Up and Play the Hits,’ was screened in theaters last month for just one night only, but fans who missed the very limited engagement are in luck. Plans to release the film on Oct. 9 as a three-disc Blu-ray and DVD collection have been announced.
Green Day have issued a brand-new official band photo (via Twitter) ahead of their forthcoming three-album blitz known as ’¡Uno!,’ ‘¡Dos!,’ and ‘¡Tre!’ trilogy — and it’s a pretty sweet shot. Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong and the boys mug for the cameras with their typical goofy faces in the picture, which we assume is a punk-rock band version of a high school yearbook shot.
Here’s a new Radiohead video to get you through hump day. This Matt Ornstein-directed ‘The Daily Mail’ video was shot when the Brit rockers hit the stage of Bonnaroo a few months back, and features some cool time-lapse video tricks as the camera starts way out on the edges of the annual festival. It slowly moves in, eventually zeroing in on singer Thom Yorke and the band from right in front of the stage. ‘The Daily Mail’ was featured alongside the single ‘Staircase’ on last year’s ‘King Of Limbs: Live From the Basement’ release.
Fans eagerly awaiting a new album from Beck, your time has come — only with one little catch: You have to play the tunes yourself. The alt-rock icon has announced plans to release something called ‘The Beck Hansen Song Reader,’ featuring 20 previously unheard songs existing only in the form of sheet music. You do know what sheet music is, don’t you?
MGMT hit the stage of Montreal’s Osheaga festival last Friday, and in addition to the catchy nuggets of psych synth they normally turn out, the New York duo also tried its hands at a Rolling Stones classic, covering the acoustic ballad ‘Angie.’
Earlier this year, the Red Hot Chili Peppers announced plans to unleash a whole wealth of new music the old-fashioned way: on vinyl. In fact, a total of nine 7-inch vinyl singles featuring 18 previously unreleased outtakes recorded while the band was making its ‘By the Way’ album are due in total, and the first release — with ‘Strange Man’ as the A-side and ‘Long Progression’ the B-side — drops this Friday (Aug. 10).
Major Lazer is the dancehall-infused side project of Philadelphia-based producer and DJ Diplo, while No Doubt, of course, are the West Coast alt-rock band with a tendency to branch out into punk, ska, New Wave, reggae and, yes, even dancehall. Put the two together and what do you get? How about the Major Lazer remix of ‘Settle Down,’ the lead single off No Doubt’s first album in more than a decade.
– Beck, Dan Deacon, Amon Tobin, Memory Tapes and ex-Battles member Tyondai Braxton are among the musicians contributing to ‘Rework: Philip Glass Remixed,’ a compilation album featuring a dozen remixes and alternate versions of tunes from the contemporary composer. The disc drops Oct. 23.
Three years after issuing their breakthrough, double-platinum certified and award-winning debut album, ‘Sigh No More,’ Mumford and Sons are gearing up for the release of their follow-up, ‘Babel.’ Ahead of that disc’s Sept. 24 release date comes its first single, ‘I Will Wait.’
Tom Waits has premiered a visually-stunning new video for ’Hell Broke Luce,’ a military march of a war tale featured on last year’s ‘Bad as Me’ album. A press release features a note from Waits about the clip, which is full of disturbing imagery that matches the song’s battle-worn lyrics.
