Morning Music Notes – We Do Everything Together
More new stuff from The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. Following up Simple and Sure, we get Eurydice, somewhat similar to the Arcade Fire song title Awful Sound (Oh Eurydice). Or not.
With a blast of indie pop goodness and a solid chorus, the band have another fine track under their belts. Watch for Days of Abandon, out May 13, and make your ears happy below.
Morning Music Notes
The xx are in
made up town Marfa, Texas recording album number 3. No word on release date or direction of the music, but you can check out member Jamie xx’s recent Sleep Sound track here.
Drunk in love, and even possibly tour mates? If rumours are to be believed, Jay Z and Beyonce might do a 20-date stadium tour together this summer. Take that, every other tour. (via Consequence of Sound)
One more reason to keep playing Call of Duty – to repeatedly hear Snoop Dogg’s voice. The rapper will record a voice add-on pack for multiplayer battlefield action, making your taunts to friends and random Internet strangers seem even less cool. Sample quote if you need armour: “Ballistic vest ready, those are some fine-ass threads.” Bring it on. (via Gigwise)
Courtney Love has boldly said “saxophones don’t belong in rock ‘n’ roll” in relation to Bruce Springsteen. I’m pretty sure Springsteen and the majority of the music industry would echo that last statement, but replace ‘saxophones’ with ‘Courtney Love’. (via NME)
I’m sure Courtney Love’s opinion is also very similar to that of Homer Simpson’s.
