Nine Inch Nails presents Ghosts I - IV, a brand new 36 track instrumental collection available right now. Almost two hours of new music composed and recorded over an intense ten week period last fall, Ghosts I - IV sprawls Nine Inch Nails across a variety of new terrain.You can buy it or download some of it for free, and listen to some of it for free. More info below....
Trent Reznor explains, "I've been considering and wanting to make this kind of record for years, but by its very nature it wouldn't have made sense until this point. This collection of music is the result of working from a very visual perspective - dressing imagined locations and scenarios with sound and texture; a soundtrack for daydreams. I'm very pleased with the result and the ability to present it directly to you without interference. I hope you enjoy the first four volumes of Ghosts."
The ALL POINTS WEST MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL LINE-UP (as of 2/21) is as follows: Radiohead, Jack Johnson, Underworld, Kings of Leon, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Cat Power, The Roots, The New Pornographers, Youssou N'Dour, Animal Collective, Andrew Bird, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Metric, CSS, Girl Talk, Chromeo, The Go! Team, Amadou & Mariam, The Black Angels, Sia, The Felice Brothers, K'Naan, Jason Isbell, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Alberta Cross, The Virgins, Black Kids, Mates of State, Duffy, Forro in the Dark, Nicole Atkins, Juana Molina, Little Brother, Rogue Wave, Neil Halstead and Your Vegas.Radiohead is in fact headlining two days (Friday and Saturday), and Jack Johnson is also one of the headliners (Sunday) (who wants to stay out late on a Sunday anyway?). More details below...
It is reported in the newest issue of URB that Radiohead will headline two of the three nights at All Points West, the New York City Festival being put on by AEG Live and Goldenvoice, the folks behind Coachella. [URB]By "NYC Festival", they mean the one in Liberty State Park, Jersey City, New Jersey (close enough). More Radiohead tour dates HERE.

After a cease & desist put the breaks on Amplive's Radiohead In Rainbows remix project, the online music community reasonably wondered if the tracks would ever see the light of day. Today comes an answer: they most definitely will. While the Oakland producer/DJ acknowledges that he probably should have contacted Radiohead (who were not involved in the project) to seek approval prior to making his interpretations publicly available, an agreement has been reached between all involved parties and Amplive has been granted permission to release Rainydayz Remixes for free to the general public.

Cat Power live on WNYC
I mentioned seven posts ago about how Thao Nguyen ran into Cat Power at a radio station, and then in the last post I posted Thao's radio broadcast, and now here's Cat Power's. Cat Power (Chan Marshall) was also recently seen watching Radiohead with Feist and Mary J Blige.....
"Portishead is confirmed to headline this year's Coachella festival on Saturday night, according to a high-level source. The same source unequivocally denied rumors that Radiohead would appear at Coachella, but did confirm that the group would play the East Coast festival being planned by Coachella promoters Goldenvoice/AEG Live . The full Coachella line-up will be announced this Monday." [URB]I hope Portishead plays the East one too, or better yet, I hope Portishead plays Bowery Ballroom - 5 nights in a row, or Beacon Theater or a church. Hopefully not Roseland again. They played the ATP Festival in December.
Other bands rumored & confirmed for Coachella so far, HERE.
Radiohead Live @ 93 Feet East 01/16/08 (CRED)
Radiohead have been forced at the last minute to change the venue for their free London show from the Rough Trade East record shop to the adjoining venue, 93 Feet East.* Radiohead.TV
On the advice of the police and the local council, it was decided to change the venue to the larger one in the interests of public safety and due to the size of the crowd that turned up for the event. Rough Trade and the band apologise for any inconvenience caused. Allocated wristbands only remain valid for the new venue. Doors open at 9pm prompt. There will be no admittance to anyone without a wristband and there will be no screens or speakers outside the venue - however the show will still be webcast from...

outside Rough Trade in London, Jan 16, 2008 (CRED)
No offense to the Wordless Music Series (they are good), but I do think it was confusing to non-Classical people (myself included) to list the show as "Jonny Greenwood" when Jonny Greenwood won't actually be there. If you look at the 2007-2008 Wordless schedule, the list of performers reads: "Do Make Say Think, Beirut, Valgeir Sigurdsson, Grizzly Bear, Mum, Max Richter, Jonny Greenwood: Jonny Greenwood: Popcorn Superhet Receiver". The Jonny one is the only time it's a "piece" instead of a performer. That said, I realize now that there is no real reason for Jonny to be there, and I'm sure the string orchestra performing his work will still be great (though I bet there will be at least one disgruntled Radiohead fan in the crowd). The NY Times has an article today (thx Hiro)....
In a way this is a peculiar program for Wordless Music, now in the middle of its second season. Most of Mr. Givony’s concerts have offered both indie rock bands (or members of more famous groups in solo spinoffs) and classical performers, an expression of Mr. Givony’s conviction, as a longtime rock fan and newcomer to classical music, that anyone who likes Bjork, Radiohead or other experimental pop would also enjoy classical pieces.The shows are January 16th (tonight) & 17th, 2008 @ The Church of St. Paul the Apostle in NYC.
In related news, Mr. Ronen Givony will soon also be doing shows @ The Village Gate. He is also expanding the Wordless Music Series. Not only is the upcoming Stars of the Lid show in NYC a "Wordless" show, so are the ones in Portland and Minneapolis. Tickets will be in sale in about a week. Plus, there are those upcoming David Byrne shows too.
And further proof Jonny won't be there tonight: Radiohead are about about to webcast a live performance from the Rough Trade shop in London.
Radiohead @ Liberty State Park & Twin Towers, August 2001 (CRED)
In the latest shift in the competition for music fans this summer, the concert promoters behind the popular Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California will stage a three-day event in Liberty State Park, according to people briefed on the plans. The new festival, tentatively scheduled for Aug. 8 through Aug. 10, is to be presented by the promoter AEG and its Goldenvoice subsidiary. A competing event, the Vineland Music Festival, held by C3 Presents and Festival Republic, a unit of the concert giant Live Nation, is scheduled from Aug. 8 to Aug. 10 in Vineland, N.J. The band Radiohead and the singer-songwriter Jack Johnson have been mentioned as headliners at the Liberty State Park event, though a lineup has not been announced. Representatives for AEG declined to comment. [NY Times]The same weekend???
Radiohead (also) played Liberty State Park in 2001.
And I'm not saying that Radiohead and Saul Williams are in the same breath in terms of popularity by any means, but it felt to me like that, partially inspired by Radiohead, we tried this and here's the results we got and I assume there's a bunch of other bands that are intrigued by the idea that may want to follow down that path. I'm not saying it was a failure or a success. I think it was both. But it wasn't 90 percent of the people that showed up paid us what we asked for. Nor did I ever think it would be. I'm not sure what I did expect.........................But at the same time there is a little bit of an element with Saul's record of a tree falling in the woods...It hurt my feelings to see it not show up on everybody's Best Album Of The Year lists, because I think not enough people knew it was out there. [Trent Reznor to CNET]Meanwhile, Radiohead sold a lot of actual CDs.
In a twist for the music industry’s digital revolution, “In Rainbows,” the new Radiohead album that attracted wide attention when it was made available three months ago as a digital download for whatever price fans chose to pay, ranked as the top-selling album in the country this week after the CD version hit record shops and other retailers. [NY Times]Trent, take note.
They aren't tour dates, but they are the cities Radiohead will play in on their next North American tour - in alphabetical order......

The Coen brothers' No Country For Old Men was the big winner at the Critics' Choice Awards in the US, taking home three awards including best film......Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood won a prize for the soundtrack to Paul Thomas Anderson's There Will Be Blood, and its star, Daniel Day Lewis, won best actor......Awards came in pairs for two other films, teenage pregnancy drama Juno, and musical comedy Hairspray.

Radiohead played every song on In Rainbows for a special New Years webcast. You can watch the whole thing below....
The first music release date falls directly on a day when Americans are more interested in college football than new albums, so this release date is amazingly sparse with only one new release - the double disc physical version of Radiohead's latest album, In Rainbows (which is showing up already on many of the year's top album lists). -Largehearted Boy

Phosphorescent @ Sound Fix, Brooklyn, NY - Dec 13, 2007 (CRED)
Richard Hawley @ Other Music, NYC - Dec 3, 2007 (CRED)
The Bowery show Saturday night was the first night of that tour and he had the crowd right where he wanted from minute one. The show was a lot like his Sin-e performance in March of last year. Hawley is a pro, as are his ace backing band, and his velvet croon was in perfect form. It was such a class act, it's one of the few times I wish the show had been somewhere like Joe's Pub, which would have been the perfect place to see him. (He's actually played there before, solo acoustic in July 2005 -- his only other NYC show was the Sin-e gig.) And we only got one song from Late Night Final ("Something Is"), and none from Lowedges or his debut. But when the mirrorball came on for his waltz-time single, "Hotel Room," it was one of those perfect moments where you felt happy to be just where you are.

Phosphorescent at Sound Fix and Richard Hawley at Bowery Ballroom where two of my favorites shows in December - both of which I forgot to post about afterwards. I wasn't actually at the Hawley Other Music show, but I liked the above pic of it better than any I saw from Bowery. Speaking of Other Music, they posted the video from the No Age in-store. Speaking of No Age, they're touring with Liars (Brooklyn show = 2/9 @ Warsaw) (and 2/11 @ ?).
I really loved No Country For Old Men. Have you seen it? Have you seen Juno, The Great Debaters, Walk Hard, or There Will Be Blood yet? What about the new Batman trailer? Are you excited for The Hobbit?
What else? Some videos below....
I knew that Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead just put out a CD, and I've seen the creepy trailer for the new Paul Thomas Anderson movie starring Daniel Day-Lewis, but it wasn't until today that I put two and two together and realized that both of these things are There Will Be Blood.
Anderson had been a fan of Radiohead's music and listened to Popcorn Superhet Receiver halfway through writing the screenplay. After agreeing to score the film, initially Jonny Greenwood had his doubts and thought about backing out but Anderson's reassurance and enthusiasm for the film convinced the musician to stick with the project. [Wikipedia]There Will be Blood opens on December 26th. The soundtrack is available at Amazon, and three songs are streaming at its official site.
Popcorn Superhet Receiver is being performed (apparently WITHOUT Jonny Greenwood in attendance, although I'm told there's a chance he might show up) in NYC on January 16th & 17th.
Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo releases Alone - The Home Recordings of Rivers Cuomo tomorrow, but the release I am picking up is another side-project, Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood's score for the film, There Will Be Blood.
The Daniel Johnston tribute disc, The Late Great Daniel Johnston: Discovered Covered has been remastered, and is a must-have for any fan of the singer-songwriter. The double disc release includes one disc of covers as well as a disc of the original songs. The covers:

Pablo Honey (1993)The Philip Glass album Book of Longing: A Song Cycle Based on the Poetry and Images of Leonard Cohen looks interesting, has anyone heard it? I can definitely recommend the Asobi Seksu holiday single, Merry Christmas (I Don't Want to Fight) (if you don't have it already).
The Bends (1995)
OK Computer (1997)
Kid A (2000)
I Might Be Wrong (Live/2001)
Hail To The Thief (2003)
The incredibly short list of interesting music releases will probably inspire me to dig through bargain bins this week. Are you picking up any new releases? Have I left any noteworthy albums off the list?
