Michael Stipe (REM)


A couple of weeks ago we marked R.E.M splitting up with a special Now Playing. The band who are no more (after they’ve released a greatest hits); the band who have ceased to be (after they’ve put out this new single We All Go Back to Where We Belong) – oh they are still going. More at One Thirty BPM including the new track from the defunct band. 

The limited Burial and Massive Attack vinyl we told you about sold out almost instantly – so the only way you are going to hear the second side, the reworking of Paradise Circus, is on places like Gorilla vs. Bear.

There’s a rather nice version of Chad Valley performing Up and Down on YouTube.

Neon Indian is one of the most pioneering musicians about at the moment so when presented with a load of weird instruments, what does he do? Well, play them rather well!! 

Fixers are giving away a free track on their Facebook page – called Trans Love.

The Ting Tings – remember them – well you soon might have them banging into your life again, as they’ve uploaded Hang It Up to Vevo.
