Sonic Youth vs STarbucks

Sonic Youth has finalized the track list for its compilation "Hits Are for Squares," due June 10 exclusively in Starbucks stores in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, Boston, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., as well as online.

In addition to the exclusive Sonic Youth track "Slow Revolution," the limited-edition CD features Sonic Youth songs, handpicked by Radiohead, Chloe Sevigny, Dave Eggers, Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, Beck, Flea, David Cross and other enthusiasts. Participants have also written about their selections for the liner notes... [Billboard]

Obviously this association with Starbucks is going to piss some people off, but Thurston doesn't care. Check out the tracklist below...

Prince @ the Coachella Music Festival - April 26, 2008
Prince @ Coachella

You are the coolest place on earth right now!" Prince declared to a sea of tens of thousands.

Prince, who had been sought out to perform at Coachella since the festival was founded nine years ago, told the crowd that when he agreed to perform, he informed the organizers that he would not only play, but party too.

True to his word, Prince then launched his band -- complete with a horn section and background singers -- into "Jungle Love." Morris Day came out to sing his song, while Prince strolled around the stage with his guitar.

For the beginning of the show, Prince preferred to let his guitar do the talking. He also welcomed the singer and drummer Sheila E, who took the lead for a song and then joined Prince in an extended jam.

Finally, Prince satisfied the crowd with a celebratory performance of "1999." His classic "Little Red Corvette" soon followed. [AP]

As Conan points out, Radiohead are one of the "most environmentally conscious bands in the world." They just aren't as 'green' as Jack Johnson (or Dave Matthews or Pearl Jam) (according to Billboard)....

Radiohead - Creep

One of the biggest bands in the world, Radiohead, will make an exclusive appearance on NBC's "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" Wednesday April 23 (12:35-1:35am ET).

The band - who made their network television debut on "Late Night" and were O'Brien's first-ever musical guest in 1993 - has recorded an exclusive live performance from their critically acclaimed and record-industry-paradigm-shifting release "In Rainbows" to air on O'Brien's contribution to NBC's "Green Week" of environmentally conscious programming.

Recorded live in London, Radiohead's performance of "House of Cards," represents an ongoing effort by the socially conscious band to act in the greenest manner possible. By opting to record this exclusive performance rather than fly over for a one-off appearance, the band - as frontman Thom Yorke notes in the introduction to their performance - avoided leaving a carbon footprint equivalent to driving one's car for a solid year.

Other guests on "Late Night's" "Green" show are a bit more literal - "Robot Chicken" creator and actor Seth GREEN and "Today" show travel editor Peter GREENberg.

Grizzly Bear plays Conan tonight (April 21). She & Him on Tuesday. Video of that 1993 Radiohead performance below....

Lollapalooza

Lollapalooza 2008 headliners confirmed
Lollapalooza's Austin, Texas-based promoters C3 Presents are not scheduled to make their official announcement of the acts performing at this year's weekend-long music festival in Grant Park until Monday, but the Sun-Times has confirmed through industry sources all of the major artists.

Art-rock giants Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails, the reunited Rage Against the Machine, Jack White's side project the Raconteurs and hometown heroes Wilco and Kanye West will headline the main stages on Aug. 1-3.

The Raconteurs, Wilco and West will each be making their second appearance at the reinvented destination festival. Other repeaters among the more than 100 acts on this year's bill are Gnarls Barkley, the Black Keys, Broken Social Scene, G. Love & Special Sauce, Blues Traveler and Mates of State.

Quite a few of the other acts -- including many of the most promising -- have earlier performed at Chicago's two independently produced music festivals, Pitchfork and Intonation. These include Bloc Party, Cat Power, Stephen Malkmus, Girl Talk, Kid Sister, Office, the Cool Kids, Battles, the Go! Team, Jamie Lidell and Grizzly Bear.

Advance three-day passes are now on sale for a limited time for $190 (after which the price increases to $205) at www.lollapalooza.com. [Chicago Sun Times] (thx Hiro)

Grizzly Bear @ Walt Disney Concert Hall, March 1, 2008 (LA Weekly)
Grizzly Bear

Hiro tells me that Radiohead will now announce their August 2008 North American tour dates on Monday, and the rumor is that Grizzly Bear will be opening. That makes sense since Thom Yorke played Grizzly Bear on the radio recently, and Grizzly Bear was just added to All Points West (the only NYC-area stop on Radiohead's tour).

Grizzly Bear is also playing BAM in Brooklyn. Radiohead is also touring North America in May. All known August cities and dates below....

NIN

Hiro writes in....

Now will NIN play 1st night or close out Lollapalooza??? I say this because Radiohead is supposed to play in Indianapolis on Aug 3rd (last night of Lolla) so I would assume Radiohead will be playing the first night of Lolla, leaving NIN to close out the festival....I guess we'll find out when Radiohead announces their 2nd Leg Dates next week....

Entrtainment WeeklyEntrtainment Weekly

Why do we (Entertainment Weekly) love indie rock? Because it shuns everything that is prefab, safe, typical. It's about freedom, expression, passion -- no rules, man! But in order to narrow down hundreds of hours of incredible musical output from the last two and a half decades, we had to apply some...well, rules:....

NIN Rainbows

Promoters won't make the lineup official for a few more weeks, but industry sources have confirmed that Radiohead has been booked as the centerpiece of the festival. The British quintet still raves about the experience they had in 2001 when they headlined a rare outdoor show at Hutchinson Field, on the South end of Grant Park. The band is expected to perform at the same location this year.

In addition, Nine Inch Nails will play its first Chicago show in several years, following the release of its 2007 album, "Year Zero," and the four-volume "Ghosts," made available a few days ago on the nin.com Web site. [Chicago Tribune]

Lollapalooza happens August 1-3, 2008 in Chicago's Grand Park. (thx Hiro)

NIN Ghosts

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.

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."

You can buy it or download some of it for free, and listen to some of it for free. More info below....

AmpliveAmpliveAmpliveAmplive

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.....

Roseland

"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.
