“The Mermaid Parade”

Phosphorescent’s new album, Here’s To Taking It Easy, is due May 11, the same exact fucking day as the new Jenna Jameson ‘best facials’ compilation DVD. Coincidence?

Child Bite

“Odd Inn”

Facial hair lovers unite: Child Bite’s new album, The Living Breathing Organ Summer, is due July 15 on Joyful Noise. There’s a track called “Limpin’ ‘Round & Pussy Footin’.” How perverse!

Mike Patton

“Urlo Negro”

Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, Fantômas, Radiohead, Green Day) has a new album, Mondo Cane, released yesterday on Ipecac. The track above is a cover of The Blackmen, a late-60s song about the Civil Rights movement. So, to those of you who thought Patton hated the Civil Rights movement, here you go.
