Computer Games


Is there going to be a new Grand Theft Auto announced very soon? Well that was one of the big questions this week online, and given credibility by Official Xbox Magazine saying it was going to happen.


So this got us thinking, what is the best music from computer games? Think GTA itself, FIFA, Guitar Hero, Tetris and Gran Turismo - both songs made specifically and others licensed can make an awesome difference.


Other than looking at computer games, we invited Abeano and Data Transmission onto the show and wrap up the rest of the goings on online this week.



Fatboy Slim - Rockerfella Skank


#DigitalDigest Part 1

* Jack White’s Third Man Records have unveiled two previously unreleased covers from The White Stripes - have a listen at One Thirty BPM.

* Jane’s Addiction have confirmed they’ll release a new album The Great Escape Artist on September 26, as well as playing a headline show at London’s KOKO on August 30.

* Laura Marling has confirmed details of her third album A Creature I Don’t Know. Due for release in September, you can see the artwork, tracklist and a teaser clip on loads of blogs including The Blue Walrus and Music Fan’s Mic.

* Much hyped hip hop artist Jay Electronica has sent a number of bizarre tweets this week. He tweeted on Tuesday he’s set to play a gig in Manchester with Radiohead next month, and on Wednesday said he was working with David Bowie on his new album. Bowie’s camp immediately denied the story, but there’s been no comment from Radiohead as yet.

* And after uploading a mysterious video a couple of weeks ago, The Drums have given us the first taste of their second album Portamento. Money is available on Soundcloud right now.
