I don't know how much Mr. Yorke actually knows about climate change but he is pissed for sure. Perhaps his passion about the matter is related to a former unpleasant experience with fossil fuel (pictured.... sorry;-).

I checked my Facebook this morning and updates from Brad Pemberton, the drummer in The Cardinals who played with Ryan Adams, showed that Chris Feinstein aka Spacewolf has passed away.
He died in the early hours of the day in his home in Manhattan, New York City.
Well, I don't know the guy, but have come to love his talented bass-playing with Ryan Adams and The Cardinals, as well as having checkedup on his doings after The Cardinals split with Ryan Adams. He sounded like an awesome guy, so thoughts and peace out.
In July 2009, Chris Feinstein and The Cardinals landed a gig with singer/songwriter Gin Wigmore in New Zealand, with whom they recently toured Australia / New Zealand.

It's not new or anything, but just a nice break this wednesday. What an eerie and brilliant video.
Department of Eagles is a band formed in 2000 by friends and New York University (NYU) roommates Daniel Rossen (Grizzly Bear) and Fred Nicolaus.
Check this out if you're into ballerina legs and singing ghosts.

The Indielaundry crew are warming up to this years Roskilde Festival. The line-up this year has been discussed a lot between the crew and we more or less agree, that among the headliners the quality is very low this year. Too mainstream, too much old news, too much rap and metal. But fortunately the smaller venues at Roskilde always has great (the greatest) shows. So this year it's the smaller and still unknown bands who we rely on here at Indielaundry. Personally I only have a few must-see's - two of them are Lucinda Williams and M. Ward. Both artists who cooperate alot with other artists - and each other. On the new M. Ward album theres a duet with the two artists, and I hope Roskilde are up for arranging this duet on stage - it could be magic. Heres a few live-goodies - that realy shows what we are up for. (Just hope Jim James shows up as well!)

Their album Person to Person should be out around june and since I havn't found it leaked yet, I just enjoyed the appetizer from their label, well-renowned label Secretly Canadian.
Anywhoooo I find Vacationing People (see below) a very fine little popgem.
This is Foreign Born doing LOve, Love, Love by Mr. Sir. Lord. Leonard Cohen. Further below the master himself.

What has been done to most of the objects in the background is the fascinating thing about this direction. Most of the objects represents a sound played in the song. For example in the beginning every clap in the song is represented by a house passing by. The timing is so badass. Visionary stuff.
If you're into Michel Gondry then you should definetly also check out the trailer for his new collab. movie TOKYO! An omnibus tale examining the nature of one unforgettable city as its shaped by the disparate people who live, work (and run amok) inside an enormous, constantly evolving, densely populated Japanese megalopolis.

Wayne looks uncannily like Jimmy Page - Yardbirds - era. I like the energy they put in it, but the dance is rubbish. The words I'm thinking about now is 'hysteria' and '...for God sakes - relax!'.
But here you have it.

This song is Take Me Home by Tom Waits from french tv in 1982, performed on a show called "Reportage". The song is from the soundtrack to Francis Ford Coppola movie One from the Heart. The album, and I quote sources on this: "...is constructed as a dialog between lovers in a fitful emotional spiral, Waits raspy growl is the perfect counterpoint to Gayle's own gutsy, surprisingly bluesy diva turns"
I'm not familiar with this album, but I know that Take Me Home is a very sweet and emotional song. It kind of just punches you Bruce Lee-way in the heart. At least a very good way to spend only 2 small minutes.

While these DIY we-live-in-solitude-in-the-woods-bands like Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes and Grizzly Bear (and a lot of others in lumberjack shirts) back each other up big time, this album should be huge. Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold has already called it “the album of the 00s.' - If I really was a teenager - i'm not (courtesy of me) - i'd be stupidly exited when someone like Robin Pecknold said stuff like that. Instead I'm just a tiny bit exited, because I really dug Yellow House, which is a beautiful creative album. AND I've just heard 'Ready, Able' from the new album which is just pure bliss - i love it already.
Rumours are that new album Veckatimest, which should officially should release in three month time, is insanely good. But hey, we'll wait and check it out by then. Or find it on a torrent. Wha'eva. Now we are a part of the hype.
By the way remember to follow Indie Laundry on Twitter

This tune just makes me very happy and video is kinda cool too. Röyksopp are just the best at electro music in Scandinavia.

Not only did I find beautiful pieces of music, but I read about a movie, which I've never heard of. It is a limited movie - 'Synecdoche, New York', directed (debut) my one of my favorite scriptwrites, Charlie Kaufman.
Trailer for Synecdoche, New York here!

While we loved - and still are loving - M Wards adventures into '50s pop with actress-songstress Zooey Deschanel on She & Him's Volume One, he now returns to his contemplative self. Now with added keyboards, strings and scattered percussion.
Watch the slow motion video for the titletrack 'Hold time'(directed by M. Ward) below. It's really beautiful and lonely. I guess Bon Iver hasn't made M Ward a single bit more hardcore, happy or full of ska. But thank God for that. This is an artist in full control and I just can't wait to buy the album.

My Morning Jacket provides an extensive 2-set show, including some unusual and very well-chosen covers of Sam Cooke, Curtis Mayfield etc. But most of all it is the explosive versions of their own songs that really kicks. The Jackets cancelled a show here in Copenhagen last fall to much frustration among the Indie Laundry crew. I would suggest that their New Year resolution would be to reschedule a new date a.s.a.p. What about Roskilde Festival, eh? MMJ would suit the orange main stage perfectly.
