Yes! Finally: Radiohead To Record New Music In September

Videos

Well, well, well… looks like it’s definitely going to be a good year for Rock music after all, because Radiohead made a major announcement after an informal year off: When the summer ends, the band will get back to work, recording and rehearsing new music.

Johnny Greenwood told to BBC Radio 6 , «We’re going to start up in September, playing, rehearsing and recording and see how it’s sounding… But, you know, we’re a slow-moving animal, always have been. I guess we’ll decide then what we do next.»

In the past year, Greenwood was busy working with orchestras, Thom Yorke spent his time on Atoms for Peace, Philip Selway began his solo album and Colin Greenwood focused mostly on charity work.

The band’s last album «The King of Limbs» was self-released in 2011 and debuted at number 6 on the U.S. Billboard 200, but was the first Radiohead album since 1995’s «The Bends» to not reach number one in the U.K.

We’ll be so looking forward to details of this potencial new album. Can’t wait!

Comic-Con: MGMT, Grimes to Perform on an Aircraft Carrier

Videos

MGMT and Grimes are heading to San Diego’s 2014 Comic-Con International, where MGMT will play a live set and Grimes will DJ at a party for CraveOnline on July 25. The event will take place aboard the USS Midway, an aircraft carrier docked adjacent to the Convention Center, and appropriately enough TNT’s «The Last Ship» will sponsor.

Though Comic-Con has primarily been a destination for movie studios and TV networks to hype their latest franchises in recent years, it’s become a rising priority for the music industry to capitalize on all the fan activity. Metallica played a surprise show last year in support of their pseudo-documentary «Metallica Through The Never,» while VH1 Classic recruited Rob Zombie to play the first-ever Opening Party in 2012. Also on tap for Comic-Con 2014 are G-Eazy and Linkin Park, who will perform at MTV’s Fan Fest on Thursday, July 24.

The CraveOnline event is produced and booked by Mirrored Media, an L.A.-based music marketing company that has previously paired Metric with Acura for a fall 2012 tour and mobile-charging brand Mophie with key festivals like Life Is Beautiful, Coachella and Lollapalooza.

MGMT are touring in support of their third album, «MGMT,» which was released last September. Grimes has started teasing new material for her upcoming second album, including the single «Go,» which was originally intended for Rihanna.

Quentin Tarantino as Elvis Presley?

Videos

qt-gg1

 

Quentin Tarantino once told an interviewer about the Elvis phase he went through during his late teenage years.

“When I was about eighteen-years-old, I got waaaay into rockabilly music.” “I was like the second coming of Elvis Presley. I dyed my hair black. I wore it in a big ole pompadour.” And he put Elvis impersonation on his resume.

In 1988, just a year after he shot his first film, My Best Friend’s Birthday, the still-unknown auteur landed a cameo appearance on an episode of The Golden Girls. He described the appearance in a 1994 interview with Playboy:

Well, it was kind of a high point because it was one of the few times that I actually got hired for a job. I was one of 12 Elvis impersonators, really just a glorified extra. For some reason they had us sing Don Ho’s Hawaiian Love Chant. All the other Elvis impersonators wore Vegas-style jumpsuits. But I wore my own clothes,because I was, like, the Sun Records Elvis. I was the hillbilly cat Elvis. I was the real Elvis; everyone else was Elvis after he sold out.

So, Quentin rocking out at 5:25

Franz Ferdinand, Phoenix, Crystal Fighters Kick off BILBAO BBK LIVE 2014

Videos

Future of the Left opened the three-day event. The Cardiff four-piece suffering slightly from an early slot that saw them play to a sparse but appreciative audience. Frontman Andy Falkous was never going to let that put him off his stride though. He led his cohorts through a set of organised chaos so powerful the onlooking Pyrenees trembled under the weight of Julia Ruzicka’s mammoth bass sound.

First on at the main stage were Parquet Courts. The preppy New Yorkers treating the crowd to history lesson in East Coast cool – from The Velvet Underground right through to The Strokes, via The Ramones and Television. Their show is tremendously good fun without being ground-breaking. They run out of steam a little towards the end, the victims of the festival’s economical booking policy meaning they have to play for about 15 minutes longer than an opening act would normally.

White Lies brought their brand of synth-laden indie to a rapidly growing crowd in the early evening. Mainland Europe still lap them up. Harry McVeigh’s every whim is gladly indulged by the youthful Basque audience, leading to some of the most dutiful clap-alongs you’re likely to see.

Franz Ferdinand headlined the first day to a sea of glowstick wielding and fairly well lubricated fans. They are everything you’d want Franz Ferdinand to be – lively and accomplished with a string of sing-along choruses that most bands would sell their souls for. Live there is little of the art-rock tendencies that brought them to the world’s attention, just a whole lot of fun. Their show is certainly none the worse for it.

Bilbao BBK continues today with sets from The Prodigy, Bastille, Chet Faker, The 1975 and many more. Check back at Gigwise for the latest news, reviews and more from the festival.
