*[consequenceofsound.net] YouTube clips, 60-second snippets, and concert reviews are all fun and good, but they pale in comparison to when a band releases the full length finished product. Fans of the Foo Fighters can celebrate this reality for a second consecutive day, as yesterday’s reveal of “Burning Bridge” is followed up by a high-quality rip of the bombastic “Arlandria”. Hat tip to @markusdiepold, who pointed us to the stream HERE.
Foo Fighters’ seventh LP, Wasting Light, hits stores April 12th via RCA. Have you ordered it yet?

*[pitchfork.com] Last night, Deerhunter stopped by BBC 6 Music DJ Mark Riley's show to perform some songs and have a little chit-chat. The band played "Octet", from 2007's breakthrough Cryptograms, as well as Halcyon Digest highlight "Memory Boy" and a cover of post-punk vanguards Magazine's "The Light Pours Out of Me".
But the real prize of the session was a new song, "60 Cycle Hum", written during a recent soundcheck in Glasgow and featuring lyrics co-written by frontman Bradford Cox and bassist Josh Fauver (a first for the band, as Bradford notes in the interview). Head here to check it out; skip to about five-and-a-half minutes into the broadcast to hear "Octet" and the Magazine cover, and skip to 49 minutes in to check out the new song and "Memory Boy".
*[theprp.com] The Sword have concluded their trilogy of music videos with the release of the “Night City” music video below. The series of videos, which included “Tres Brujas” and “Lawless Lands“, were shot with Artificial Army (The Mars Volta, Dead Meadow).
