Lou Reed – “Perfect Day”
Karen O and Danger Mouse recently covered this Lou Reed classic at Sirius XMU. The duo paired up earlier this year to release a collaborative album Lux Prima, and have done it again with this new tune. Karen O is a huge fan of the late Lou Reed, and even helped to induct him into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 2015. The duo sound amazing together and it is no surprise that they recorded yet another great track.
Iggy Pop – “Real Wild Child (Wild One)”
Iggy Pop has released a full video for “Run Like A Villain.” The punk legend teamed up with producer Chris Stein to show an amazing mixture of punk creativity and his growing interest in West African music. Visual artist Marta Kacprzak of Motion Picture Stories works on the video, pushing the song back to popularity for the first time in decades.
Pixies – “Monkey Gone to Heaven”
The Pixies recently released a new track, “On Graveyard Hill,” and announced that they’re set to release a new album titled Beneath The Eyrie. The first single from the indie giants is a spooky, raucous rock track that revolves around a roar of heavy guitars, squalling instrumentals, and monotonous, crooning vocals. The delightfully eerie tune references all things mysterious, like “the witching hour,” “potions,” and “the poisonous forest.”
