New(ish) Music – Pixies, Crystal Castles, and Daft Punk

Music news? On this blog? And it’s not about Pearl Jam? I know, it’s kind of weird, but a few things caught my eye in the past few days, and I couldn’t help but post about them:

  • Firstly, Daft Punk has a new song out. I don’t know all the details, but I think it has something to do with the new Tron movie coming out. You can read more about that at Stereogum, or download the track below.
  • Secondly, Crystal Castles teamed up with Robert Smith of The Cure to cover Platinum Blond’s Not In Love. The track is pretty good. I think Crystal Castles should consider adding Mr. Smith as a permanent band member; it makes their music much easier on the ears.
  • Finally, the Pixies just decided to offer a recording of their 2004 Coachella performance for free on their website. If you don’t like the Pixies, then listen to the track below and you’ll be converted. If you still don’t like them, then just rip your ears off; you’re not using them properly anyway.

Daft Punk – Derezzed

Crystal Castles – Not In Love (w/Robert Smith)

  1. So now that I ripped my ears off, how am I supposed to listen to Linkin Park, Disturbed, and Insane Clown Posse?

  2. If that’s your musical taste, then it’s better that you ripped your ears off.
