Let’s clear out the bookmarks folder: Here are a few quick stories of note…
- First off, this is sort of big news: M.I.A. is prepping her follow-up to Kala for this summer! Speaking to Rolling Stone, she revealed two new track titles (“I Fight the Ones That Fight Me” and “I’m Down Like Your Internet Connection”), and a few other deets.
- The February issue of Vogue has a great interview with Alison Mosshart that’s chock full of possible pull quotes. Here’s my favorite one: Jack White is asked to describe the Dead Weather/Kills frontwoman in just three words. His answer? “Lady Gaga’s nightmare.” The article isn’t officially online yet, unfortch 🙁
- Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien spoke in a video for MIDEM recently about the story behind the band’s In Rainbows scheme, while sporting (what I’ll wishfully call) a recording sessions beard. Watch it here.
- The New York Times posted an interesting piece on Spoon in which frontman Britt Daniel sounds off on the “indie band” label and more. There’s also this funny bit:
“What’s your criteria for a good video?” Mr. Harvey asked.
Mr. [Britt] Daniel: “Is Devo in it?”
His band laughed, but Mr. Daniel seemed serious.
