After a long period away, Cat Power is set to return on September 3rd with the release of her newest album Sun, but she’ll also return to the stage a month later for a short North American tour, which begins in Miami on October 10th and includes a stop at Showbox SoDo on November 3rd. Aside from sporadic dates throughout the last two years, the 15-date jaunt is Chan Marshall’s longest since a two-month trek in summer 2010 and will be the first chance for many to hear the new material after she cancelled her Coachella appearance earlier this year.
Nine months after its release, Radiohead have teamed up with director Matt Ornstein to produce a video for the post-The King Of Limbs song “The Daily Mail”. Perhaps surprisingly, the video has almost nothing to do with the song’s political subject matter, and instead features a time lapse of the events of the 2012 Bonnaroo Music Festival intercut with the band’s performance of the song. Watch the ostensibly-unrelated-but-still-kinda-interesting video below.
Canadian twins Tegan and Sara have finished their still-untitled forthcoming album, and to celebrate its release, they’ll be heading back on the road in September. The duo will play a series of Northwestern dates (including a stop at the Neptune on September 24th) before heading down the West Coast opening for the Black Keys. The band’s seventh album, the follow-up to 2009′s Sainthood, has yet to receive a release date, art, or tracklisting.
Although his second album of 2012 has yet to receive any release details, Neil Young and Crazy Horse have already debuted a handful of songs from the forthcoming disc in a live setting since starting their 2012 tour earlier this month. So far, solid-quality videos of an acoustic cut entitled “Twisted Road”, a rocker named “Born in Ontario”, and a 20-minute jam dubbed “Walk Like A Giant” have made their way online. Conversely, only one song from the recently released Americana has been played live. Watch videos of all the aforementioned new tracks at Consequence of Sound.
