Short Film Documentary Trailer
Denton, TX raised indie rockers Midlake’s latest album, The Courage of Others, doesn’t release until February 2, but to tide fans over, the band have been featured in a short film directed by My Name is Earl star Jason Lee. The follow-up to 2006’s stellar The Trials of Van Occupanther, the new album features 11 new tracks, including new single “Acts of Man.” The film will be available as a DVD with deluxe edition of The Courage of Others, along with a double LP, 45 rpm version of the record, and a 32 page book and a live CD.
Aa (“Big A little a”) hail from Booklyn and have been going at it for the last six years. Time to breakout, no? This track, “Mossy,” is from a recent European-only 12-inch. It’ll also appear on a forthcoming full-length, due later this year.

The Magnetic Fields
“We Are Having a Hootenanny”
The Magnetic Fields are fucking awesome. Anyway, here’s a video for “We Are Having a Hootenanny,” a short track off the band’s upcoming album, Realism. Look for it January 26 on Nonesuch.
“The Night You Left New York”
Western Vinyl is set to release Slow Six’s Tomorrow Becomes You January 26. And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for… a quote from The Wire!!
Listening is like slipping into a warm aural bath…Tignor’s beguiling compositions move seamlessly through several stages of development, often ending up somewhere distant from where they appeared to be headed at the outset.
The Illustrated Garden is the punchiest, most lyrically direct set of songs the band has released to date. The songs are unmistakably Radar Brothers, but the Treichel/Hussey rhythm section often pushes them in unexpected directions.
Look for the album March 23 via Merge.
