Jonny Greenwood

Last month, Radiohead member and BBC Concert Orchestra composer-in-residence Jonny Greenwood premiered his latest orchestral work “Doghouse” (which will also score the forthcoming film adaptation of Haruki Murakami’s novel Norwegian Wood). And guess what? WE’VE GOT THE MUSIC! Actually, the BBC’s Radio 3 does, as we reported earlier this month.

Click here, forward 33 1/3 minutes in, and check out both the piece and an interview with Greenwood and conductor Robert Ziegler. It’ll be up for this week only.

Dirty Projectors

“Dark Eyes” [Bob Dylan cover]

While in Australia, Dirty Projectors performed a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Dark Eyes” (off his 1985 album, Empire Burlesque) at Triple J’s Like A Version radio show. Which makes me wonder: what will Dirty Projectors do next and stuff?? [via Stereogum]

B. Dolan


B. Dolan’s new album, Fallen House, Sunken City, was released earlier this month on Sage Francis’ mighty Strange Famous Records. The album, produced entirely by Alias, is so hot it has its own website! Wish I had a website, too… but, you know, the economy and all.

Bonnie "Prince" Billy

“81” [Daytrotter]

Bonnie “Prince” Billy & The Cairo Gang are releasing The Wonder Show of the World on Drag City March 23. This track’s not on the LP, nor is it a cover of labemate Joanna Newsom’s “‘81.” It’s actually 10 years old, from the Get On Jolly EP. Still, we’ve posted it here, and you can’t really do much about it.

David Bryne & Fatboy Slim

“Please Don’t” [feat. Santigold]

This is the first video of six that has been completed for Here Lies Love, David Byrne’s very-likely-because-it’s-already-happened collaboration with Fatboy Slim. The album is due April 6 via Nonesuch.
