radiohead free live dvd

August 31, 2010

Are Radiohead the greatest band of our generation? Possibly! First they gave us a free album, now they have given us a free DVD.

Back on August 23rd, 2009 at a show in Prague, 50 fans filmed the concert from 50 different positions in the crowd. The footage has since been professionally edited with professional show audio. This is a Radiohead concert DVD shot by fans, for fans.

news fall be kind ep

October 13, 2009

animal-collective

animal collective seem to be at the climax of their success, both creatively and commercially to the audience. merriweather post pavillion is getting better and better with each listen, but we want to hear something new from them.

here is an interview with avey tare of animal collective about the up and coming fall be kind ep.

“the title fall be kind is kind of a play on “fall behind,” when you move the clocks back. everything seems to be very seasonal or weather-oriented for us this year. I wanted to keep it a little bit in line with that. It felt like merriweather post pavilion was really springy or summery.”

avery tare revealed that the five-track ep fall be kind will be released in december, while a digital release might be released earlier in november. it’s first single is ‘brothersport’, which happens to not be in the ep.

“initially, the idea was to do this ‘brothersport’ ep and then have all these other tracks on that. but the way that promotion for records goes, we wanted these other songs to be their own thing. the ep stands on its own away from merriweather. not that it’s completely different– i mean, it definitely sounds like it’s us, the same band that did merriweather. but I think putting ‘brothersport’ on that ep, with the way our label promotes things, it would have just seemed more like the ‘brothersport’ single with a bunch of b-sides.”

tracklist:
1. graze
2. what would i want? sky
3. bleed
4. on a highway
5. i think i can

what would i want? sky

so i realise im late on this news as its been out all week but its just been one of those weeks, sorry. um so thom yorke has joined up with the red hot chili peppers bassist flea, radiohead producer nigel godrich, beck/r.e.m. drummer joey waronker, and percussionist/multi-instrumentalist mauro refosco of forro in the dark.
