Morning Music Notes – Faking It for Football
More new stuff from Chicago teen rockers The Orwells. We’ve featured them a whack of times – go listen if you don’t believe me. The band return with another guitar-centric (whatever the hell that means – it just sounded cool) track called The Righteous One.
The performance is a good one, albeit not as crazy as their performance on David Letterman. Expect these guys to win many fans at festivals this summer. Check out the latest below.
Morning Music Notes
The Juno Awards were announced yesterday for the upcoming show in Winnipeg. Arcade Fire lead the pack with 6 nominations, Serena Ryder had 5 noms, Drake had 4, as did Tegan and Sara. PHM interviewees Basia Bulat (Adult Alternative Album of the Year) and Rah Rah (Alternative Album of the Year) also got nominations. The full list is right here.
It’s official – the Red Hot Chili Peppers did what Milli Vanilli and my girlfriends have all done in the past – they faked it. Flea admitted this in a post on the band’s website, noting that the band did some soul searching before deciding on doing it. He also noted “the NFL does not want to risk their show being botched by bad sound, period.” A respectable move or just lame?
How is this for an interesting tribute? The New York Port Authority will have a ceremony at the Central Terminal Area at John F. Kennedy Airport for the Beatles. Why? Because
nobody has anything better to do this is where the band had their first U.S. press conference. Maybe they can work in some of those old, one-liners into the new press conference. It all goes down Feb. 7 at 11:30 am. (via Hollywood Reporter)
