  • Bradford Cox from Atlas Sound and Deerhunter joined Divine Fits on stage last week to cover the Ramones’ “53rd & 3rd”.  And to continue with Sandy-related news, Cox adds after the song that “53rd & 3rd is probably underwater right now.” [prefix]

  • Brooklyn electronic duo Silent Drape Runners are playing their own new live soundtrack to David Lynch’s cult classic TV series Twin Peaks.  It’s tough to top Angelo Badalamenti’s score for the show, but considering the band’s name, they must be big fans–check out the video below. [prefix]
