Radiohead have shared a previously unreleased song, "Spectre," which they recorded to be the potential theme to the latest James Bond film of the same name.

Day three of Coachella 2010 more than made up for a lackluster day two, with set after set of strong artists and ending with perhaps the three best performances of the whole festival, all in a row: Pavement, Thom Yorke, and Gorillaz. It would have been nice if the wealth of great artists had been spread out a little bit more over the three days, but then again, Sunday wouldn't have been so strong if they had scheduled it that way. Here's what I saw on the last day of Coachella: Local Natives, Owen Pallett, Mayer Hawthorne, Deerhunter, Florence and the Machine, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jonsi, Spoon, Phoenix, Pavement, Thom Yorke, and Gorillaz.

Twilight: New Moon Soundtrack Listing Confirmed

Features Thom Yorke, Grizzly Bear, The Killers, St. Vincent, Bon Iver and Lykke Li

Sep 21, 2009

The official soundtrack for 2008's Twilight wasn't much to sniff about (kind of like the movie). Only a few scant cuts from blood letters Paramore and Linkin Park littered the tracklisting. Conversely, the marketing blitz for Twilight sequel New Moon has been nothing short of buzz-worthy and downright confusing. The final tracklisting was announced today on Myspace and writer Stephanie Meyer's website and it's just as ripe for hipsterdom's cognitive dissonance as we surmised. More

Coachella 2010 Day 3 Recap

April 18th, 2010

Apr 20, 2010

The final day of my maiden Coachella voyage I learned an important lesson: after two packed days, less is more.
