Watch Damon Albarn Debut “Lonely Press Play” At Sundance

Based on what little we’ve heard, Damon Albarn’s forthcoming solo debut, Everyday Robots, is gonna be a good one. Of course, I’d argue Damon is one of the five or so most vital artists of the last quarter-century, so “a good one” is perhaps to be expected, but then again, he’s just as likely to… More »

Every year we get a handful of popular musicians taking on film scores. Last year we heard Mike Patton with The Place Beyond The Pines, Arcade Fire with Her, M83 with Oblivion, Oneohtrix Point Never with The Bling Ring, and Skrillex with Spring Breakers.

Watch Courtney Love Cover “99 Problems”

Animal Collective Debuting ODDSAC At Sundance, Watch The Trailer

Animal Collective’s Fall Plans

Depending on your indie-oriented-site-that-ranks-bands-on-ten-point-scales of choice, it seems Animal Collective are second only to Radiohead as the aughts’ most relevant band. And with the bevy of activity the Collective has lined up, they seem to be angling to extend that well into next year.

There’s something old: a reissue of the out-of-print 2003… More »

Ben & Zooey Hit Sundance

If you have money and/or connections, Washington DC is the place to be today. There are so many people gathered for the presidential inauguration, CNN is shooting from a satellite in space! But sadly some celebrities are stuck in Park City, Utah, forced to navigate gifting suites instead of cheering our new 44th president. We… More »
