A Ton of Shit From Michael Woods

A couple days ago I got an email from UK electronica act Michael Woods and Diffused Music, complete with seven (!) separate remixes of Wood's single "Natural High" (ft. Inaya Day).

Take all you want!

New Video; Deerhunter - Microcastle

Ex-Deerhunter member Adam Bruneau has directed an unofficial video for the band's singles, "Microcastle" and "Cover Me Slowly" off of their new album Microcastle (available now via Kranky).

For those wondering, yes, you're basically getting a shit-ton of sepia-toned wildlife scenes. So, you know, get your fill if you were missing out from something like that.

Nick Cave Interview

One of my favorite song writers of all-time, the enigmatic Australian Nick Cave, sat down Pitchfork.TV's Cosmo Lee for a couch-time interview. He talks about New York City, the Bad Seeds, and whatever's going on with his Grinderman project.

Check back here tomorrow for part two.

More Fleet Foxes, Again

Only a few days after Fleet Foxes (new album available on Sub Pop) session on Later... With Jools Holland, the group has shown up on Vincent Moon's La Blogotheque. Check out the band's performance of "Sun Giant," and my personal favorite "Blue Ridge Mountains."

Of Montreal cover It's Alway Sunny in Philadelphia

You Ain't No Picasso found the jem from somone's digital camera. It's Of Montreal covering ... Dennis and Charlie from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and their cult-classic "Day Man" (performed by Dennis and Charlie as Electric Dream Machine).

Seriously, I love this.

The Original "Day Man."

New Conor Oberst Song on Conan

Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley band introduced a new song last night on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. For anyone who's been keeping track, this is one of the best music trends of recent to happen to late night talk shows (Grizzly Bear on Letterman, anyone?)

I'm still unsure of the song's title though, so you can just think of one yourself.

You can check the whole episode, along with Oberst's new song on Hulu.

Carmine P. Filthy's Barack the Boat

Thanks to Carmine for sending me this huge mix after Obama won the presidency of the United States.

Yes we can? Sure, sure we can.

Wire on Daytrotter Sessions

In the latest episode from Daytrotter Sessions, 70's English Post-punk band Wire performs four songs, free at the Daytrotter website, during their Chicago tour in the wake of a new Obama presidency, and the band's newest album, Object 47.

Frontman Collin Newman explains: "In keeping with Daytrotter's 'played' feel we chose four songs from the set we have been touring throughout Europe & North America during 2008. We did this session the day after the last date of the North American tour (in Chicago), which was in fact our last date of 2008! We never attempt to 'reproduce' album versions in our live sets, so each piece must find its expression as a live entity. In that way this studio recorded version of Wire playing live was a unique document. Falling at the end of our most extensive touring year since 1987 it became a unique document recorded at a unique time!"

Check out the sessions here, or you can check out Wire's website for more.

New Video; Sigur Ros - “Við spilum endalaust”

Culture Bully posted this one up yesterday, but according to my weekend policy - fuck that. So, yeah, a day late, but no one is going to argue with me. I'm sorry, i'm being a bit negative.

Hey Everyone!
