Nine Inch Plastic Faint, Lightspeed Eyes, Eagle*Seagull flies again; Jake Bellows/Midwest Dilemma tonight…
Here are some news blips for ya:
— Aversion is reporting (here) that The Faint are making a remix of a track off Nine Inch Nails’ Year Zero album. No idea what Trent will do with it. The story concludes with news that The Faint will be heading into the studio to record the follow-up to Wet from Birth. No word on who will be releasing it, however. Speaking of The Faint, I discovered this dance interpretation of “Posed to Death” on YouTube yesterday, featuring UNO professor Dr. David Corbin. It concludes with a serious message about plastic shopping bags that will make you think the next time the cashier asks that timeless question: “Paper or plastic?”
— Remember that column about my night spent at Crossroads Mall with Dev Hynes of Lightspeed Champion (read it here)? Well, according to DiS (here), Domino is about to release his new record. Lightspeed also will open for Bright Eyes at a couple London dates early next month, and then Tilly and the Wall in early September.
— Eagle*Seagull’s Eli Murdock e-mailed to let me know his band just finished recording their next record in Seattle with producer Ryan Hadlock (The Gossip, Blonde Redhead). Don’t look for it until early 2008, though. “We’re right in the middle of negotiations with a number of labels and after that’s finalized it’ll be at least another four to five months until release,” he said. Anyone who’s been to an Eagle*Seagull show in the past year probably has heard a few of the new songs, and is as eager as I am to have it in their hands.
Tonight, Justin Lamoureux of Midwest Dilemma celebrates his birthday at The Waiting Room with Jake Bellows (of Neva Dinova), Salt Lake City’s Drew Danburry, It’s True and Chandler Arizona’s Iji. $5, 9 p.m.
Tomorrow morning, your letters in column form.
