Dump #3: Shaun Ryder, Sonic Youth, National, MBV in 8-bit, DJ Shadow, Tool, and a Dave Navarro Reality TV Show!

Let's see how much of this stuff I can put together.  I'm trying to keep on top of my links by using twitter (which automatically goes to facebook) so if you wanna get this info faster please follow us there (some of the stuff below is probably duplicated on twitter and facebook as well)


Odds and Ends: Listen to MGMT & National, Elliott Smiths Fans Are Upset, Beck Covers INXS, and more...

Here's some of the stuff I've seen over the week that's kinda interesting but not interesting enough for me to clog up your RSS feed, twitter account or Facebook page over.

  • MGMT's new album was leaked so they decided to stream the whole thing from their site.  Enjoy.
  • The National's new album, High Violet, will be released on May 11th.  You can grab a track from the record, "Bloodbuzz Ohio" on
  • Larry Crane is a longtime friend of Elliot Smith and he's in the process of remastering Smith's debut album, Roman CandleFans are upset over an album that no one has heard, but I can see why.  It's something that should be preserved, faults and all.
  • Beck, St. Vincent & the Liars have covered INXS's popular "Kick" album in a day.  They are releasing one song a week from their project, first up is "Guns in the Sky".
  • The BBC reviews Jonsi's new album, Go.  I like the intro:  "His voice remains one of modern music's most readily identifiable instruments".
  • Iggy Pop will no longer stage dive after the audience failed to catch him at New York's Carnegie Hall.

MGMT Teach "Art Is Everywhere" On Yo Gabba Gabba!

Last year we told you MGMT were set to appear on season two of Nickelodeon's Yo Gabba Gabba! as space Vikings performing a song called "Art Is Everywhere." We weren't lying, but it took some time to track down the footage via an obscurely tagged YouTube clip ("Russian Rugrats") uploaded this summer. Some would argue that MGMT basically always make children's music. Whatever your stance, they definitely look comfortable (and stoned?) piloting their avian longboat and making like Abstract Expressionists.Continue reading MGMT Teach "Art Is Everywhere" On Yo Gabba Gabba!...

Download - MGMT "Time To Pretend" (Jorge Elbrecht of Violens Remix)

We just got our hands on a very interesting remix of MGMT's "Time To Pretend." The song was reworked by fellow Brooklynite Jorge Elbrecht of the psych-pop band Violens. He completely alters the mood of the track, taking us on a quite a ride through several different rock subgenres - Source
