In The News: The Flaming Lips, The Clientele, Nick Oliveri, Rivers Cuomo, Bob Mould And Free MP3s

flaming_lips_2The Flaming Lips (pictured), along with fellow Oklahoma City natives Stardeath And White Dwarfs, have re-interpreted Pink Floyd’s classic The Dark Side Of The Moon. The album, which features Henry Rollins and Peaches providing vocals, is available online; it will be in stores on Tuesday … For another sort of “supergroup,” there’s the DVD release of the famous 1964 concert, The T.A.M.I. Show, out via Shout! Factory on March 23. The DVD features performances from James Brown, Chuck Berry, the Rolling Stones, the Beach Boys, Marvin Gaye and more … The Clientele will be touring the U.S. this February in support of its latest album, Bonfires On The Heath (Merge). Download “I Wonder Who We Are” and “Harvest Time” … Former Queens Of The Stone Age bassist Nick Oliveri will be taking his solo tour to the U.S. starting January 22, supporting Death Acoustic (Impedance/MVD Audio) … Fans who think they have a little something to teach Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo can contribute to his new song, “Shusui,” by going to Indaba Music and helping create a “better version” of Cuomo’s existing tune while he recovers from his recent bus accident … Fans of the Who are in luck, as the lineup for its March 2 tribute concert keeps expanding. Bettye Lavette and Jason Isbell have joined Bob Mould, the Gaslight Anthem, Sondre Lerche, Robyn Hitchcock and more to raise money for several organizations, including the Church Street School for Music & Art, Music Unites All-Youth Choir and Young Audiences New York.

    I love your magazine and getting the news in an email but I gotta tell you I’m really tired of your need to tell us what songs/artists/lp’s are Overrated. I have no interest whatsoever in reading those items. Let us know more about the stuff that was Underrated so that we may have the pleasure of hearing it too. Thanks.

    Tomorrow, we’re posting our 2009 Hidden Treasures, a list of 10 great overlooked albums from the year. That qualifies as underrated, I think.
