*[FMQB.com] Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood has taken to the band's "Dead Air Space" blog to clarify statements in a recent Italian issue of Rolling Stone. In the magazine, Greenwood said that Radiohead is "almost finished" recording their next record and would likely tour in 2011. Greenwood wrote on the blog, "I think this italian writer (referred to here) has, either through over-enthusiasm, or frustration at all my non-committal answers, mistranslated me a little... in fact we haven't quite finished the album - in the studio at the moment - nor have we yet considered any touring. The plan is to have no plan until the record is finished... hope that's a little clearer!"
*[pitchfork.com] After releasing just one official single and a few songs online, the Rising New York-based indie-pop group Cults have been signed by Columbia Records in the U.S. and UK. (In the UK, they are signed to an imprint called In the Name Of.) They're currently working with producer Shane Stoneback (Vampire Weekend, Sleigh Bells) on their debut album, which is due this spring.
*[pitchfork.com] There's nothing particularly high-concept about Male Bonding's new video for the Nothing Hurts track "All Things This Way". Instead it's a quick-and-dirty minute and 41 seconds, comprised almost entirely of footage from their fun, sloppy live shows. Watch it below, via Prefix, or download it via the Sub Pop site.
