Another day, another release announced for Record Store Day. If Pinback really knew what was up, they would ditch Record Store Day for 8-Track Day, which is presented by the same folks that brought us LaserDisc Day last year. Who needs gigantic records, like the limited-edition 7-inch Information Retrieved pt. A that Pinback are releasing through Temporary Residence Ltd. for Record Store Day, when you can carry around one of these nifty devices in your super-cool fannypack? Hey, if people can buy records and pretend it’s still 1969, I can wear my fannypack with pride and pretend it’s still 1983. Perhaps Pinback will hop aboard the 80s bandwagon too when they hit the road this spring. Check out the dates after the strange promo video.

The Avalanches, Spiritualized, Sonny Rollins, Odd Future, and more head down under for Australia’s Vivid Live; put another bad joke on the barbie!

The Avalanches, Sonny Rollins, Odd Future, Chris Cunningham, Cut Copy, Bat for Lashes, and others have all been announced as part of the lineup for Sydney, Australia’s Vivid Live, a series of concerts that will all take place at Sydney’s fan-favorite Opera House. The music festival is part of Sydney’s annual Vivid Sydney (May 27 - June 13), an annual “festival of light, music, and ideas” that “celebrates the city as a leader in the field of the creative and cultural industries both nationally and throughout the region.”

However, most of the artists involved in the concert series are mostly looking forward to the chance to repeatedly tell native Australians: “That’s not a knife; now this, this is a knife,” before brandishing a large hunting knife, to the astonishment of onlookers. Band members are generally elated to make this, and many other tired, old, unfunny jokes because let’s face it, it’s what most people know about Australia; expect plenty of jokes about vegemite and Mad Max.

This year the music festival is curated by Stephen ‘Pav’ Pavlovic, founder of the hugely successful Sydney-based record label Modular. The complete lineup is as follows: Bat for Lashes, Sonny Rollins, Spiritualized, Chris Cunningham, Yo Gabba Gabba (?), Cut Copy, Tame Impala, Architecture in Helsinki, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, OFWGKTA, Wu Lyf, Azari & III, The Crystal Ark, The Avalanches (DJ set), 2ManyDJs, Lucky Dragons, Dom, Bag Raiders, Sneaky Sundays, Daniele Baldelli,Canyons, Horse Meat Disco, Superbien, Mad Racket, The Swiss, Tom Kuntz, Beni, Van She, Flight Facilities, Club Kooky, Softwar, Bamboo Musik, and Changes. If you don’t believe me, check out the video below.

Jay Reatard’s 1998 debut Teenage Hate to be reissued with bonus tracks and remastered hatred

The late, great Jay Reatard’s first album (with The Reatards) is getting the deluxe reissue treatment. It’s called Teenage Hate and come May 31, Goner Records will release the double album as a compact disc as well as a limited-edition clear vinyl set. Teenage Hate was originally released by teenage Jay back in 1998 with 18 tracks, but this fancy new version will more than double that number with the addition of early tracks like “Fuck Elvis Here’s The Reatards” that were previously available only on cassette. Not only that, you can find tracks featuring Greg Cartwright from The Oblivians and the Reigning Sound! You can find covers of Fear, Buddy Holly, The Beatles, and The Dead Boys! And so much more!

If you’re a Jay Reatard fan, deluxe Teenage Hate is like 39 chests of buried treasure. In an early review, soon-to-be fan Dave Dunlap called Mr. Reatard “a real ‘Little Lord Punkleroy.’” Heh. However, Dunlap designated the pubescent garage rocker as “easily the most blistering pizzunk to dribble down the leg of the raspy whore that is the ‘Memphis scene’ in a long while.” Teenage Hate is where it all began, people. As a wise Black Eyed Pea once put it, “Let’s get it started in here.”

Teenage Hate tracklisting:

01. I’m So Gone
02. Stacye
03. I Love Living
04. When I Get Mad
05. C’Mon Over
06. Out of My Head, into My Bed
07. You Fucked Up My Dreams
08. It Ain’t Me

Dead Meadow to release their Peel Sessions while John Peel is still dead

Good news today for fans of Dead Meadow and those types of people who collect Peel Sessions like baseball cards, as Dead Meadow have announced that they will be releasing the sessions they did for John Peel on May 10 via Xemu Recordings.

Recorded in 2000, the six-song sessions were the first Peel Sessions that legendary DJ John Peel allowed to be recorded outside of the UK. “At the time we had no money and no tour to head to the UK but John Peel really wanted us on his show,” explains bassist Steven Kille. “He allowed us to record locally and since we were all good friends with Fugazi while living in DC we tracked the songs on reel-to-reel tape at their practice space in Arlington, VA.” Besides the six songs recorded for Peel, the CD will also include acoustic versions of “White Worm” and “Golden Cloud,” which were recorded at the same time but in seperate sessions.

In continuing sad news, John Peel remains dead while pop music slowly decays from within and great bands die due to lack of exposure.

Peel Sessions tracklist:

01. Dusty Nothing
02. Good Moanin’
03. The Boot
04. Indian Bones
05. Drifting Down Streams
06. Breeze Always Blows
07. White Worm
08. Golden Cloud

Raekwon readies massive North American tour with one hand, holds the Pyrex steady with the other

You may know him as Corey Woods — okay, probably not. So you may know him as Raekwon, or even as Raekwon the Chef, or even “that one guy from Wu-Tang Clan.” He’s been making music since the 90s, with a flow fresh enough to put Irish Spring out of business. (Note: this has not yet happened. Irish Spring still has “all the freshness of Ireland bottled.” It’ll leave you feeling clean! But enough with the asides.) Now Rae’s back and hitting the road in support of his new Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang (TMT Review) album that was released in March on Ice H20/EMI.

Originally conceived of as an album showcasing the entire Wu-Tang Clan, Shaolin now counts as Raekwon’s fifth studio album, albeit one with many a storied guest star, including a Wu member or four — Ghostface, Black Thought, Rick Ross, Estelle, Nas, GZA, Method Man, and Inspectah Deck all appear. Raekwon’s tour starts this week, and although no special guests are guaranteed to appear, ol’ Corey Woods probably has enough megawattage of his own to make every night of the tour star-studded.
