*[pitchfork.com] When Pavement take their 2010 reunion to "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" on September 23, they'll be joined by a special guest guitarist-- you! Well, not all of you. But one of you. They're accepting submissions from guitarists to play with them on the after hours TV program, according to Matador. Click HERE for all the rules and regulations.
Pavement fared pretty well on our Top Tracks of the 1990s list, by the way.
*[pitchfork.com] "Helicopter", a slow and dreamy track from Deerhunter's forthcoming Halcyon Digest, now has a video. To watch it, head over to this site and click on the passage from band-beloved writer Dennis Cooper. The clip is five minutes of frontman Bradford Cox singing directly into the camera, in tight black-and-white close-up, while other stuff flashes onscreen in double-exposure. It's sort of an incredibly indie-fied take on Sinead O'Connor's "Nothing Compares 2 U" video, except no teardrop. Halcyon Digest arrives September 28 from 4AD.
*The self titled brand new album from BIRDS OF TOKYO is now available to purchase on iTunes worldwide!
*Just a reminder, you can download Fever Sleeves full length debut Soft Pipes, Play On for FREE at the band's Bandcamp page.
