Indie Music Hour with DJ HotJack

A regular journey around the music scene

Music Scene News – 25th July Round-Up

latest news

A couple of movie soundtrack snippets. Apparently the excellent Karen O (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) is involved with the soundtrack for the Spike Jonze adaptation of Where The Wild Things Are and Daft Punk, who did the musical score for Tron Legacy, may also be responsible for the soundtrack. Geeky – but whatevs.

I kinda liked what Be Your Own Pet did but I also felt it could only ever be a temporary stop-off for Jemima Pearl. It felt very ‘young’ and I was pretty sure she could progress beyond that type of music. Well, we should all find out how she’s grown soon as her solo album is due in October.

Weezer are apparently close to finishing their 7th album. Have they still got what it takes after an attempt to stick to radio-friendly ‘hits’ with the Red Album?

Lake Tahoe sounds nice around now. Wanderlust festival is up and running and features the likes of Broken Social Scene, Andrew Bird, Jenny Lewis, Amanda Palmer and Spoon. Hmm, Andrew Bird, Jenny Lewis and Amanda Palmer – I have an idea for a new supergroup!

Glastonbury might only just be over for this year but registration for next year has already opened. Not that it comes with any meaningful guarantees.
