All of this stuff happens in the music world that I love and like a greedy fat kid at candystore* I kept it all to myself.
A few quick rundowns:
Autechre released an exclusive digital album with even more mixes from the VERY UNDERRATED Quaristice the first week of May. It was Autechre quality so you are either going to love it or hate it (I am in the former group) If that sort of thing strikes your fancy head on over to bleep or iTunes and download it.
Speaking of online digital exclusives...
We finally get to say hello to some horses that had been gone for FAR too long. William Garvey ( who's name may not be familliar to you...yet) wrote a little song in the very late 80's that is probably very familliar to ANYBODY who has ever seen the Silence of the Lambs
Yes. THAT SONG. Goodbye Horses (which up until now had only been available on the VERY out of print Married to the Mob soundtrack or in an edited version on the Clerks 2 soundtrack) has been re-released as an iTunes exclusive EP with 3 new mixes and just sounds fan-friggin-tastic.
Buy it. If you are going to own one song that was used as the background to a creepy penis tuck dance THIS should be it!! Plus, the song has always been one of my favorites. While you are at it check out the the Q Lazzarus Myspace page and leave her a comment to tell her just how much you LOVE the song :)
So, last year Trent Reznor went out of his friggin way to prove that he is not a douche. It worked. he is totally awesome. Well, as if he couldn't become more awesome he sent out a message to his fans:
as a thank you to our fans for your continued support, we are giving away the new nine inch nails album one hundred percent free, exclusively via nin.com.
That's right kids. FREE. Want a copy? Head on over here
He also released an exclusive tour EP with songs from the bands that he is touring with. Also available online and FREE.
My favorite movie of last year is finally available on DVD stateside.
And finally (though good gawd there is so much music I missed out on!!) the whole reason I was making this post in the first place. Two great tastes are about to taste great together. I want to leave you with this.
RADIOHEAD COVERING PORTISHEAD

(as a note. I don't care what anybody thinks. The new Portishead record is just great and gets better witH EVERY listen)
GAH! There is so much more I want to talk about but for today this is enough. I am going to do my best to keep up a bit more, but you know... life...
Anyhow. Keep listening. :)
