Bjork posted the following message to her website last week:
A few years ago doctors found a vocal polyp on me chords ... i decided to go the natural way and for 4 years did stretches and tackled it with different foods and what not . then they discovered better technology and i got tempted into hi tech lazer stuff and i have to say , in my case anyway : surgery rocks ! i stayed quiet for 3 weeks and then started singing and definitely feel like my chords are as good as pre nodule ! it´s been very satisfying to sing all them clear notes again . im sorry i had to cancel stuff earlier in the year , didnt want to talk about this until i knew for sure if it would work . so looking forward to singing for you in 2013 all the warmth ,björk.That sounds like good news! The Independent has even more:
"[Bjork]is now considering adopting the fan-funding model to raise money to reprogram Biophilia for Android. "It was always our target that it wouldn't be a coffee-table thing for rich kids. We are going to go to Paris in February and the West Coast of the States in the spring. And then we could go to South Central. And teach them about scales and chords. I'm kidding... No, I'm not, actually!""The article also points out that her new favorite band is Death Grips who are responsible for two remixes on her new Biophilia remix album.
The France Biophilia shows were officially announced today. Check out the exact dates and venues below. The "West Coast of the States" dates mentioned above, have still not been announced, but perhaps there is some Coachella in her future? If so, and Sigur Ros in fact are playing too, it will be a good year for fans of Icelandic music. Oh, and she told NY Mag earlier this year, when she was in NYC for her residency here, that she was planning on San Francisco (which would fit nicely between Coachella's two weekends).

@ an Ed Banger Costume Party in Paris (CRED)
Bonjour party people. Sorry for yet another absence but I was spending some time in Paris. As a result, I've got loads of fantastic new music to turn you on to in the next few weeks, but first lets get caught up on upcoming events this week.....
Booka Shade returns on Thursday night (August 2) at Studio B in Brooklyn for the rare weekday Fixed party. As far as live electronic music goes, Booka Shade are one of the top bands out there. The boys at RVNG have posted up the Booka Shade Essential Mix for your review. (They've also just put out a killer tee shirt!)
