QUICKIES: JUST A TASTE EDITION

Foo Fighters Wasting Light album cover art

PREVIEW OF NEW FOO FIGHTERS ALBUM RELEASED

Some Kind of Awesome has 30-second previews of each track off the Foo’s new album Wasting Light, to be released April 12, along with a full version of the opening track “Bridge Burning”.  But let’s talk about how awesome the cover art is.  I’m not typically a fan of bands plastering the covers of their records with their own mugs, but this psychedelic combination of semi-transparent images drowned in neon colors against a black background is pretty bad-ass.  [via Some Kind of Awesome]

DEATH CAB RELEASE FIRST SINGLE, FILMING OF VIDEO TO BE BROADCAST LIVE

The first single off Death Cab for Cutie’s upcoming album Codes and Keys, entitled “You Are a Tourist,” was released online a couple of days ago.  I’ve posted the song after the cut.  This was followed up yesterday by the announcement that the filming of the single-take, scripted music video for the song will be broadcast live over the internet (here, at 7 pm EST on April 5) for anyone and everyone to see.  Let’s hope it goes a little better for them than it did for Budd Dwyer.  He was filming a music video that day, right?  [via Pitchfork]

THE MARS VOLTA PERFORM NEW SONGS, TONE DOWN SELF-INDULGENCE

The Mars Volta, recently touring under the “guise” of Omar Rodriguez-Lopez Group, have been performing entire sets of new material to those in attendance.  The songs are good (check them out here), but unfortunately the set still includes the (at least one that we know of, so far) obligatory 12+ minute autofellatio-fest.  [via Antiquiet]
