Beach Fossils’ self-titled album is due May 25 on Captured Tracks. Maybe as a pay-what-you-want download??
Atoms for Peace

Last night, Thom Yorke and his Atoms for Peace project performed Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart” at The Fox Theater in Oakland, CA. Yorke hasn’t sang this low since the Throat-Job Incident of 1994. [via Stereogum]

“Creep” [by Radiohead]
Conan O’Brien, no relation to Ed O’Brien, soundchecked Radiohead’s “Creep” the other day. He’s currently on his “Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour.” (Fun fact: Radiohead was the first musical guest on Late Night with Conan O’Brien). Look for Conan on TBS, a “very funny” station, in the fall.
