New Björk – “Earth Intruders”

Those bits of cracked out audio that Gerome Voltaire was leaking crop up in the first single from Volta, streaming in this YouTube clip set to the true Volta cover (björk.com webmaster MWC clarified in the comments that the last iteration was just “a shot from a promotional shoot by Inez & Vinoodh”). Beat by… More »

Björk Covers 2Unlimited … Drunk

Most of you know Stereogum’s mission to be Fair And Balanced?, so for every report of a fake Björk item, we endeavor to offer one grounded in reality — any by “reality” we mean “booze.” So here she is: in Paris two weeks ago, covering “No Limit,” tipsy. Sing along! (via Hit Chaser)… More »

April’s Fööls

From björk.com (yes, we’re going to do the stupid umlaut joke indefinitely):2007-04-01
Unfortunate change of plans

We have just received notification of the serious kind which we reluctantly pass on. Over the past few weeks a person who calls himself Gerome Voltaire has been passing on material and images on his MySpace page a… More »

Volta Goes Viral … Maybe

Over the past few days we’ve been receiving emails about an odd MySpace friend of Björk‘s (bottom right on her list of “friends”), myspace.com/ itshardtofindbandnames. Location: Iceland. Name: Gerome Voltaire. The page for Mr. (or Ms.?) itishardtofindbandnames, created on 3/21, has interesting snippets of audio, bizarre video, and this message:What I’m presenting here at the… More »

New Bjork Album To Feature Antony, Timbaland

Bjork talks new record! Well, as NME says, bjork.com‘s “official correspondent” Meester Fly has posted this report on the site after a correspondence with our favorite Icelandic siren. Details are still sketchy, but we can look forward to Timbaland production, Lightning Bolt percussion, and the gotta-hear-it-to-believe-it sound of Antony and Bjork harmonizing.Being the one and… More »

Stereogum Readers Poll: Miss Indie Rock 2005

The “indie rock hottie” poll took forever ’cause none of you spell the same way. And then I had to research who was in what band. So that’s why I’m listing the ENTIRE tally before revealing who won. Plus, some of you were pretty explicit about Tegan NOT SARA and vice versa.

I took… More »

Björkestra at Galapagos

Travis Sullivan’s Galapagos. Travis Sullivan arranges Björk’s signature sound for large jazz ensemble, and it sounds pretty great. In fact, I haven’t been able to listen to “Army of Me” since the summer of ’95, when it was on the radio every 15 minutes or so. But check out Travis Sullivan’s cool arrangement, performed live:… More »

Björk VS Beyonce

Crazy Björk blasts Beyonce for selling her soul to the devil (via Ireland Online).”I love her voice, but maybe not what she stands for. I’m really pisssed off she’s doing all of those commercials. I can’t believe she did Pepsi. Doing that is like selling your soul to the devil. Maybe it’s different in America,… More »

Björk’s Vocals-Only CD

“Instruments are so over.” Really Björk? You don’t think you’re pushing it just a little? I guess I’ll reserve judgment until I hear it. Medulla features collaborations with Inuit throat-singer Tanya Tagaq as well as Mike Patton (former Faith No More throat-singer).

A few years ago my friend Adam turned his office into a… More »
