Autolux Has A New Label And Will Support Thom Yorke in Santa Barbara

Autolux sent out an email announcing that their sophomore album, "Transit Transit", will finally see the light of day on TBD Records (Yes, that's actually the name of their new label!).  Their first album, "Future Perfect", was released in 2004 and after they finished up touring, they went into the studio to record.  But plagued by label issues they haven't been able to release their second album.  So they have been playing random shows around the LA area for the last couple of years and previewing the new material.

Speaking of random shows, Thom Yorke has asked Autolux to open up for him when he plays the Santa Barbara Bowl on April 17th.  They're going to play a few more shows in the LA area the week prior and we'll have the details when they're released. 

See below for the tracklisting of the upcoming album


Coachella 2010 Lineup Announce: Orbital. That is All.

The linup for Coachella was announced today and it's full of surprises and the usual reunions.  Jaz-Z is headlining Friday which is pretty non-Coachella-like and surprising.  He's headlining with LCD Soundsystem and Them Crooked Vultures (the rock supergroup consisting of John Paul Jones [Led Zepplin], Dave Grohl [Nirvana], and Josh Homme [Queens of the Stoneage]).  Other Friday highlights are a reunited Public Image Limited, Echo & the Bunnymen, Grizzly Bear, She & Him, and Grace Jones (?!?!).

Saturday is headlined by Muse, Faith No More and Tiesto.  And also has MGMT, Hot Chip, Devo, Coheed and Cambria, 2ManyDJ's, Z-Trip, the XX, Mew, Raveonettes, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Camera Obscura, and a bunch of other little bands that I have yet to discover.

Sunday is headlined by ORBITAL!  Okay, not really, but they are the headliners in my mind.  Gorillaz, Pavement and Thom York take the top three spots.  You also have Phoenix, Spoon, Sly and the Family Stone (?!?), Yo La Tengo and about two dozen bands to round out the lineup.

This looks like a good year.  I was looking to cut a day or so out of the lineup to save some money but there are some great "must-see" bands on each day.  After last year I was questioning if I should go again and it looks like I'm going to be sweating along with the rest of you out in the desert for one more year.

Bjork. No Yorke

And just when we were getting excited about the Oscars for a change... it's now been reported that producers of this year's Oscar telecast have pulled the plug on the planned BJORK/THOM YORKE duet, citing time constraints. The performance has been limited to three minutes, while Bjork's nominated track, "I've Seen It All," clocks in normally just over six minutes in length. An abbreviated arrangement of the track will still be performed by Bjork during the show, but the new arrangement gives no time for an appearance by Yorke.

Bjork and Yorke At The Oscars has just confirmed that THOM YORKE will be performing with BJORK at the Oscars.

Bjork/Thom York Collaboration Online

The BJORK/THOM YORKE collaboration has been released to the public today, and is available for download from currently. The track will feature on the soundtrack to the award-winning and Bjork-starring flick, "Dancer in the Dark," which turned many a head at the recent Cannes film festival.
