Monday Morning News Fix

  • Chromeo are one of the few bands that actually force you to get up and dance when you hear them. They’ve released an excellent new video for “Hot Mess” which could easily have been a convenient excuse for them to sit around in a steam room full of beautiful women.

  • A warehouse owned by Neil Young went up in flames on Tuesday. The warehouse contained guitars, paintings, vintage cars, and other memorabilia. Around 85% of the valuables were said to be salvaged, but the blaze has been reported to have caused 1 million dollars worth of damage.
  • On December 4, the Showbox at the Market will host a benefit for the late Sub Pop VP Andy Kotowicz, who was recently killed in a tragic car accident. The show will feature Mudhoney, Fruit Bats, Shabazz Palaces, and other Sub Pop artists, and proceeds will go to the Andy Kotowicz Family Foundation. You can donate yourself by clicking here.
  • Despite the recent released of Plastic Beach and a current tour, Gorillaz have finished a new album. The album was recorded in on an iPad and should be out by Christmas.
