Nick Diamonds (of Islands)
“Lonely Love” [new song live]
Nick Diamonds of Islands recently performed three new songs for Radio Happy Hour (an insanely awesome radio show featuring interviews, performances, an audience quiz show, and a comedic murder mystery featuring the guest star). According to Diamonds, the tracks will likely turn into full-band Islands songs. Check out all three here and vote for “Whose Look Were You Feelin’ The Most?” at last night’s Hills finale red carpet here.
[Full disclosure: TMT film writer Dustin Luke Nelson is a writer/producer of the Radio Happy Hour show.]
77 Boa Drum [trailer]
On September 7, Thrill Jockey is releasing a DVD documenting Boredoms’ 77-drummer Boa Drum performance, which took place on 7/7/2007 at 7:07 PM at the Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park in Brooklyn, NY (TMT News). In addition to the actual performance, the DVD also includes rehearsal footage, interviews, and clips from the series finale of The Hills. I’m fucking psyched.
While I’m bummed that The Hill is over with, I can seek solace in the fact that Cosmogramma (TMT Review) still, like Brody, kicks ass. Here’s the latest video off the album.
“Shutterbugg” [feat. The Roots, live on Jimmy Fallon]

Nina Nastasia’s got a new album out, Outlaster, released last month on FatCat. Recorded by
producer longtime collaborator Steve Albini (Shellac, Big Black, Jessica Hopper), the album may or may not be about my attempts to “outlast” my girlfriend’s previous boyfriend in bed. Listening to “Moves Away,” a short but sweet track from Outlaster, my guess is probably not. But I did still want all of you to know that I’m actually outlasing my girlfriend’s previous boyfriend in bed. Take that, Steve.
