If you saw the preview video that was posted last week, then the imagery on this cover art will look very familiar … and not all that exciting, IMHO. The single will be released this coming Tuesday but you can click below to check out the cover art now. More »

Today is April 20, 4/20, and in addition to being National Stoner’s Day it is also Record Store Day. Every April, folks pack independent record stores here in the US and in the UK to pick up special and/or limited edition releases in order to channel cash money into the coffers of indie record shops. I never EVER have success on Record Store Day. Either I get to the store too late in the day or the ONE record I really want sells out on me OR I’m traveling and unable to even try my luck (which means I have to pay double on eBay). This year was different, this year I was successful in picking up every record I wanted at the ONE store I went to :D There haven’t been a lot of things that have been cheering me up lately but today’s RSD haul has brightened my day considerably.

The Real Song, For Real
Last weekend Daft Punk teased audio and the music video for their new single Get Lucky, the first from their new album Random Access Memories. Today, after the illegitimate release of many fake versions of the track, Daft Punk officially releases the actual audio of the song. Get Lucky features Pharrell on vocals and can be heard in full above. If this is a sign of what’s to come on Random Access Memories then I think Daft Punk are going to do VERY WELL with this new album. I LOVE this track, can’t wait to hear more!! Random Access Memories will be released on May 21.

In the meantime, NIN drummer Ilan Rubin is hard at work on the release of a new album by his solo project The New Regime. A new album titled Exhibit A will be released next month and today we get to hear the first single from the album, a track titled Daydream.

Yesterday afternoon I holed myself up inside the Cinerama Dome at the Arclight Theater in Hollywood, CA to see a double feature of the amazing Baz Luhrmann films Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge. I found out about this double feature a few weeks ago and snapped up at ticket immediately. I’m a a huge Luhrmann fan and both of these films are among my faves of all time so … it was a no-brainer. After my afternoon of movies, I paid a visit to Amoeba Records to pick up some new vinyl and, well, that was my Sunday. More »
