    Thurston Moore's new album, 'The Best Day' hits shelves throughout Europe today (North America tomorrow), touted yesterday by The Observer's Kitty Empire as "a madeleine of a record" ("both comforting and discomfiting, 'The Best Day' recalls prime Sonic Youth, when their tense experimental attitude dovetailed with often sour but instantly accessible pop melodies")  and with that, here's a video for the monumental "Speak To The Wild", directed by Santiago Mostyn.

  • IDIOT BOX ALERT : The New Pornographers on TBS' "Conan" Tonight

    October 16th, 2014 at 12:24 pm by Gerard
    
    
    The New Pornographers will be appearing on TBS' "Conan" this evening (11pm eastern, 10pm central).  Mr. O'Brien (as he's known to people who aren't his friends or associates) will also welcome guests Anthony Anderson (SO GOOD IN THE FIRST "BARBERSHOP", AKA "BARBERSHOP ONE : THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD") and Jon Lovitz (also, quite good in "Happiness", aka The Second Greatest Story Ever Told, though perhaps not as good as Mr. Anderson in "Barbershop", and maybe a little too creepy in this context, so never mind).   Prior to Friday night's show at the Wiltern, The New Pornographers will be … Read more

    A lot of it still feels unreal. We played 20 shows with Lorde. We met an uncountable number of people at the shows and played for even more. We did it all with a crew of 4 people in a minivan. How did this happen?
    
    We were met with positive and warm receptions at all of these shows. We were never booed or heckled (although if we had been I would have understood). I believe this to be a testaRead more

    As previously announced,  Belle and Sebastian will release their ninth studio album on January 20, 2015 (Jan 19 in the UK and Europe), 'Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance.' Today, a peek at the album cover, track listing, and more.
    
    Last week, The Quietus published an interview with Stuart Murdoch and Richard Colburn which gives a hint of what to expect.
