The new revenue stream for indie rock is vampires. Beck did True Blood, and for the second straight installment Twilight’s sucking blood from bands you probably maybe listen to.

Thanks for the heads up, CoS.
The Twilight: Eclipse soundtrack is out 6/8 via Atlantic. While we’re talking Rostam, here’s some live video of one of his first shows as Boys Like Us (the solo project that promises a JJ, as in Jack Johnson, remix), in Los Angeles with the Calder Quartet:
