Atari Teenage Riot

Atari Teenage Riot, the Berlin digital hardcore band, reunited last year after a ten year hiatus with an altered lineup.

Hanin Elias is now a solo artist and Carl Crack died of a drug overdose.

Alec Empire and Nic Endo remain with the addition of MC CX KiDTRONiC.

The politically-charged ATR is more passionate than ever as heard on their new album Is This Hyperreal? due out next week.

The song “Blood In My Eyes” (available as a free download) is an attack on human trafficking in a supposedly civilized world.

Death Cab for Cutie video

Tonight, Death Cab for Cutie will experiment with the video for their song “You Are a Tourist”.

They will attempt the first-ever scripted one-take video to be aired live as it is filmed.

Should be fun, particularly if it’s more than simply a live performance.

See it here live at 7:00 pm Eastern or the final result thereafter .

Thurston Moore

Thurston Moore, the ever-versatile and multi-talented singer, songwriter and guitarist of Sonic Youth, is poised to release his third solo album in late May.

Demolished Thoughts was produced by Beck.

“Benediction” is a lovely song (and free download) from the album and features Samara Lubelski on violin.

Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi featuring Jack White

Danger Mouse, producer and musician extraordinaire (The Grey Album, Gorillaz, Gnarls Barkley, Beck, Broken Bells) has collaborated with Daniele Luppi, an Italian film composer.

Ensconced in a recording studio in Rome used for classic Italian films of the 60s and 70s and reassembling vintage recording equipment and musicians from the era, the two recorded songs live and straight to tape with no computers and 21st century effects and trickery.

Enlisting the vocals of Jack White and Norah Jones, the album Rome was born.
