Morning Music Notes – Grumpy Old Men and Rich Rappers
Kick off your morning and your week with some straight forward rock from J. Roddy Walston & The Business, and their new track Heavy Bells. The track is lifted from their upcoming third album, Essential Tremors (which is only the first Tremors movie, right?), which is out September 10.
Morning Music Notes
Nigel Godrich goes on a Twitter rampage, while Atoms for Peace and Thom Yorke pull their track from online streaming service Spotify. I’m sure Spotify doesn’t mind the free (albeit negative) publicity (via Rolling Stone)
Beady Eye release they have trouble filling a set with good songs and play two Oasis songs at T in the Park festival on the weekend. Rock N’ Roll Star and Morning Glory are the lucky winners (via NME)
Despite a dozen number one albums in America, rapper Jay-Z has finally landed his first number one album in the UK with Magna Carta Holy Grail. Interesting, he hadn’t gotten above number 4 in the UK charts before. Amateur. (via NME)
So apparently Jay-Z has a feud with senior citizen, Robert De Niro? (via Gigwise)
In case you missed our tweet on Friday, Arcade Fire responded to a fan’s tweet by not only saying thank you, but revealing to the world that their new album will out October 29. Twitter isn’t entirely useless after all!
