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.

Massive Attack

“Saturday Come Slow (feat. Damon Albarn)” [short film]

Massive Attack released Heligoland (TMT Review) last month. Not one to be shown up by their February incarnation, Massive Attack have also released a short film for “Saturday Come Slow,” which features white-dude Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz). Can’t wait to see what they’ll release in April! Action figures maybe?
