Big day for music news.
–Exclaim! says the Arcade Fire are planning to release their as-yet-untitled third album in May, with a single before that with tourdates in the spring. The new record will also be produced by Coldplay‘s producer Markus Dravs.
–Phoenix are on la Blogotheque. Versions of ‘1901’ and ‘Litszomania’ are there, filmed in locations around Paris. I was partial to the older song ‘Long Distance Call’, which got me into the band way back and is embedded below.
–The Temper Trap have a new video for ‘Fader’.
-and Said The Gramophone has gone over their best songs of the year.
Remember this Holly Miranda song we praised a little while back? Well, Holly is giving us two more versions of the song ‘Waves’, one in the form of a Fiume video session (from La Blogo’s Vincent Moon), the other in a free download from her site (go to HollyMiranda.com to get the acoustic version). And don’t worry, these Waves will not disappoint.
