i’ve just made pitchfork.com my new start page in safari. just this week i’ve had my mind blown from a couple of different directions:
1. new sufjan stevens track called ‘there’s too much love’ recorded at a recent gig in new york. sufjan, try killing me a little more. love you… CALL ME?
2. thom yorke has started a band to tour his solo stuff with. includes nigel godrich, beck/r.e.m. drummer joey waronker, multi-instrumentalist mauro refosco and red hot chili peppers bassist flea. wha-haaat???
3. you know life is good when someone goes to the trouble of turning daniel johnston’s music and artwork into an iphone app called ‘hi, how are you?’. having said that, i most likely won’t be buying it but it’s still pretty damn cool.
4. the announcement of new band, tentatively called ‘broken bells’, and featuring indie-crush james mercer from the shins and, oh-you-might-have-heard-of-him, danger mouse.
