Sub Pop has announced details about the debut album from Dum Dum Girls. Titled I Will Be, the LP was produced by Dee Dee herself along with Dee Dee and the legendary Richard Gottehrer (Strangeloves, Voidoids, Blondie, The Go-Gos and, more recently, The Raveonettes) and will be released on March 30, 2010. Oh boy!
Elizabeth Fraser has told the Guardian that despite offers of £1.5 million each, Cocteau Twins will never reunite. The “voice of God,” however, can still be heard on a new single called “Moses.”
Of Montreal’s Kevin Barnes told Paste that he “would be fully psyched” to collaborate with Beyonce. This comes after the former Destiny’s Child singer said she’d “love to do something like that” on her next album.
Chunklet has a wicked 40-minute montage of Fugazi on-stage banter to download for free. No band both takes the piss and keeps a crowd in line as good as Fugazi did.
Arcade Fire are indeed hard at work on a new album with Markus Dravs, who engineered their last one, Neon Bible. A member of Mumford and Sons let it slip to BBC 6Music that Dravs has been working on it for six months. Surely they’re close to finishing… surely!
