Bright Eyes Cover The White Stripes For Charity

According to Pitchfork:

As part of a collaborative charity effort, the Gift Horse Project and Manimal Vinyl Records have enlisted a group of musicians to record school-friendly cover songs for a compilation called Cool for School: For the Benefit of the Lunchbox Fund. Bright Eyes appear on the collection alongside Swedish duo First Aid Kit with a school-themed take on the White Stripes‘ “We’re Going to be Friends.”

Proceeds from sales of the compilation go toward the Lunchbox Fund, which provides meals in South African high schools. After the tracklist, stream the Bright Eyes/First Aid Kit track.

So it’s all for a good cause. Even though I’ve never been a huge Bright Eyes fan, it looks as though if this kind of goodwill-ery keeps up, we’re going to be friends after all.

Check Out David Lynch’s Hilarious/Frightening New Song “Crazy Clown Time”

Crazy Clown Time is almost upon us!

There are two ways to look at David Lynch‘s “Crown Clown Time”, the titular track off his forthcoming LP, due out November 7th (via Sunday Best Recordings and PIAS America). On one hand, it sounds like an obscure Radiohead 7″ single, only spun at 33 1/2 rpm. But on the flipside, it just plays out like a regular evening with Mr. Lynch. Over wavy, loungey instrumentation, the “auteur of weird” exclaims oddities like “She rips her shirt off completely” and “We all ran around the backyard” and “It’s crazy clown time.” Somewhere in there a woman moans again and again.

Sounds absurd. After having listened to the entire track though, I have to say, I will not be able to sleep tonight. Or ever again. Download the track now (via Lynch’s Facebook).

Watch The New Music Video From Ty Segall

Here’s the video for Ty Segall’s “Goodbye Bread”, from this year’s album of the same name. The Matt Yoka-directed clip is pretty trippy and keeps zooming out at a big, hipster party. So take the trippiness and weigh that against whatever your tolerance of hipsters is.
