    The review for the new Green Day is pretty funny. Especially since they completely tear it down and then give it a 4.8.

    Common Teams Up With Jonas Brothers

    The last time teenybopper juggernauts the Jonas Brothers tried to go hip-hop, they recruited their bodyguard to drop a verse on their single "Burnin' Up" (seriously). On their awkwardly-titled forthcoming album Lies, Vines and Trying Times, however, the Jonases take a big step up in the rap universe. Common, of all people, shows up on the song "Don't Charge Me for the Crime", in what has to be the weirdest teen-idol/credible-rapper team up since at least Blake Lewis/Lupe Fiasco, if not LFO/M.O.P.

    Holy shit I really wanna go to this

    Boredoms to Play on Boat During Eclipse

    On July 7, 2007 (07/07/07), tranced-out Japanese freaks the Boredoms played a show in Brooklyn with 77 drummers. On August 8 of last year (08/08/08), they did the same thing in Los Angeles, only this time they had 88 drummers, while their buddies Gang Gang Dance lead 88 drummers at a simultaneous event in Brooklyn. Simply put: the Boredoms know how to make a show feel like an astral event. Even at a regular Boredoms show, watching them play can make you feel like one of the cavemen in 2001 discovering the alien monolith.

    So if you've got 168,000 yen (or about $1,700) sitting around for a rainy day, you may want to blow it on what sounds like a pretty incredible show: Boredoms, along with Gang Gang Dance and others, performing on a boat, during a solar eclipse. OMG.

    As Wired magazine's Underwire blog reports, the organizers of Japan's Tokara The Sun & Moon Festival have booked a Russian ferry on July 22, during what will be the longest total solar eclipse in a century. It'll last for six minutes! The affair is called the Lucy in the Sky With Diamond Ring tour.
    The cruise will last for three days, which I guess is where the "tour" part come in. For that exorbitant price tag, you get the Boredoms, Gang Gang Dance, Goma, and DJ sets from Boredoms frontman Yamantaka Eye as well as Altz and Moodman. You'll also get organic food and sleeping quarters.

    In other news, the Boredoms will follow up the above-mentioned 77BoaDrum and 88BoaDrum shows with a September 9 (09/09/09, duh) show at New York's Terminal 5. (It is unlikely that they plan on cramming 99 drummers into the venue, unfortunately.) Then, at ATP New York, taking place in Monticello, New York on September 11-13, Boredoms will take the stage with nine drummers, as previously reported.

    Does anyone read the regular columns on Pitchfork? I really like Resonant Frequency. It's not at all what Pitchfork is notorious for, i.e. pretentious, unnecessarily complicated and wordy, elitist hipster snobbery, etc. His articles, mostly about his relationship towards specific pieces of music or artists, examine the universal through the personal and provide a lot of food for thought about how we relate to music.

    Director: Thom Yorke Wrote New Song for New Moon Soundtrack

    According to the film's director, Thom Yorke really did really did write a new song for the soundtrack to the Twilight sequel New Moon.

    New Moon director Chris Weitz confirmed the news in an interview with HitFix.com that took place at Comic-Con. According to HitFix, Weitz will get his first listen to the track tomorrow. "Unless it's sounds of him belching, I think I'll put it in," Weitz said. To be honest, there probably is a market out there for sounds of Thom Yorke belching.

    Oh and guess who else wrote a new song for New Moon? Bon Iver! "He says he wrote it for the film, but who ever knows if it might just be something laying around in his cupboard," said the director.

    Wow.

    Was reading through their top 100 of the 90s list, and their write up of the Jesus Lizard's Goat is one of the best pieces of writing on the site:

    Quote Originally Posted by Pitchfork

With Steve Albini's engineering assistance, The Jesus Lizard turned every last screeching, clanging, hook-heavy riff into the sound of imminent catastrophe; then they plugged it in to a power-mad rhythm section, drove it into your living room, shit on the rug, spit in your face, fucked your wife, cheated on your taxes, and drank straight from the milk bottle. If hell hadn't run out of horseshoes, David Yow would have been the fifth horseman of the Apocalypse, and if the voting hadn't been rigged, he would've been the fourth, right in front of pansy-ass Famine. Feeding off every ounce of the spiraling chaos behind him, Yow channels it all into righteous, bile-soaked howls and eerie threats. He's got a grudge against everyone-- fucking everyone -- especially you, you fucking mouth-breather.

    So, they put the Smell documentary that debuted last night up on Pitchfork.tv. I've only watched the first 30 seconds, but I've already seen myself.

    That's awesome, Bryan.

    The doc - or, rather, live show compilation - isn't quite what I expected but I cannot complain that it isn't a very good thing anyway.

    It adequately captured the shows I saw. For the record, those were The Mae Shi, Health, Foot Village, No Age and Abe Vigoda

    Ok... "Fell in Love with a Girl" the #1 music video. Makes sense.

    But what the fuck is "Since I left you" doing above "Frontier Psychiatrist"?

    -- Supercluster is an Athens, Georgia-based indie pop supergroup led by Pylon frontwoman Vanessa Briscoe Hay and New Sound of Numbers singer Hannah Jones. The band includes members of Deerhunter, of Montreal, the Olivia Tremor Control, and Casper & the Cookies. On October 6, they'll release Waves, their debut LP, via Cloud Recordings. You can download the track "I Got the Answer" right here.
    This has the potential to be really fucking good.
