Montreal’s Arcade Fire has always been known for doing somewhat oddball things. Like their intriguing live show stage set-up or the unexplained flip books included in the special edition of their last album Neon Bible and even recently when they informed their fans about their upcoming release via a postcard to “The Internet.” Recently, they allowed people to preview two songs from their forthcoming album The Suburbs by manually spinning an image of a scratched record on their website. Indy Underground will premiere new music from this highly anticipated release.
The National needed a well deserved break after the release of their last album, 2007’s The Boxer and took time to retreat to their friends and family. After tossing ideas around, the band renovated guitarist Aaron Dessner’s garage and converted it into their own home studio and rehearsal space where they recorded their most recent effort High Violet (released on May 11th), which we’ll feature more from this week.
Beck is a man who isn’t afraid to add another item to the ones he’s already juggling. Whether it’s producing an album for Charlotte Gainsbourg or continuing work and collaboration with his Record Club he still finds time to record for other outlets. He is most recently contributing to the True Blood Season Soundtrack Vol. 2, which we’ll also present.
All tonight at 8pm on 92.3 WTTS!!
