Madcap lo-fi whiz Ariel Pink and his Haunted Graffiti have signed to 4AD and will release a new album in 2010.
The first crop of talent confirmed for the 2010 installment of South By Southwest has been announced. Among the hundreds of acts on the lengthy list are Japandroids, Warpaint, Frightened Rabbit, We Are Wolves, Plants and Animals, Timber Timbre and We Are Scientists. Umm, we expect them to announce a lot more in the coming months.
Tickets have now gone on sale for the All Tomorrow’s Parties New York 2010 event. Taking place the weekend of September 3 - 5 at Kutsher’s Country Club in Monticello, performances include Iggy & The Stooges doing Raw Power, Sleep doing Holy Mountain, Mudhoney doing Superfuzz Bigmuff + Early Singles, and The Scientists doing Blood Red River.
Animal Collective have completed their long-awaited “visual album.” Panda Bear (aka Noah Lennox) said it should be out next year and that the band will also begin writing a new album.
NME has named its 100 Tracks of the Decade, selecting Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love” as the best song of the aughties. MGMT, The Strokes, M.I.A. and OutKast round out the top five.
