Hello? Are you even reading this? Yes, what you see above is a new artwork for BJÖRK‘s recently released new album Vulnicura. While an early leak forced the Icelandic musician to push the release date forward. She’s still planning to release a physical version of the record this month which features that new artwork, designed in collaboration with artist Andrew Thomas Huang. It leaves a lot of space for interpretation, don’t you think?
It’s not THE WOMBATS if it’s addictive power pop, right? The British three-piece has shared the latest teaser off their forthcoming third studio album Glitterbug. It’s called Give Me A Try and it’s everything you expected if you love the band. Uplifting power pop at its finest. The record arrives on April the 6th via Warner.
Good news for all fans of psychedelic ensemble ANIMAL COLLECTIVE. The latest solo adventures from band member Noah Lennox aka PANDA BEAR won’t prevent the collective from returning to the studio soon. Lennox himself now told BBC Radio 6 that he’s pretty sure that the band will start recording new material before the year ends. Let’s cross fingers for that.
Although NOEL GALLAGHER’S HIGH FLYING BIRDS just scored NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION’s Album of the Week in form of Chasing Yesterday chances might look good for a quick follow-up. According to a chat with the NME Gallagher is already ‘halfway through’ of recording a new album. Whatever that message means but maybe we don’t have to wait another three years for a new album which wouldn’t be the worst thing, right?

The discussion what music video should be shot can cause a lot of trouble in a band. Montreal-based indie-pop heroes STARS make no difference in that. The band’s latest music video for Trap Door shows the vital discussion prior to the video shot in which singer Torquil Campbell is pretty keen on shooting a video for exactly this song and no other one, even if his band may disagree. Real or fake? You decide for yourself. The song itself is an instant classic, so we can agree on this. The band’s latest LP is called No One Is Lost and is highly recommendable as well.
New clip material for all TWO GALLANTS lovers. The band shares a lovely stop-and-motion video clip for Incidental, a tune from this year’s new album We Are Undone which was released back in January. The video was created by Alexander Safdie and Kangmin Kim and can be watched right here.
British stadium rockers MUSE really seem to enjoy the teasing for their new album Drones. Various cryptic Instagram posts were released in the past months and now Matt Bellamy did a Q&A via Twitter with his fans with also quite cryptic answers. Questioned about whether Drones is the name of the album or its first single he just answered: ‘#psycho handler, brainwashing us to be become human.’ And asked about the first airplay of the new MUSE single he simply replied that the song is ‘too offensive for radio.’ Well, and suddenly we know as much about this as before.
Everything’s better in 8bit, right?
