The Cure – “In Between Days”

The Cure dropped a disorienting cover of Jimi Hendrix’s “Purple Haze” a while ago, and the cover was recently resurfaced by Far Out Magazine. The band’s cover of the 1967 track is full of The Cure’s distinctive ’80s-style synth, but still contains samples from Hendrix and other out-of-this-world sounds. Check out

Talking Heads – “And She Was”

A recently unearthed video has surfaced online, showing Talking Heads’ debut CBGB performance from 1975. The clip captured the performance at the legendary punk club, which later became a pivotal moment for the band’s success. Check out the performance here.

Pixies – “Monkey Gone To Heaven”

Pixies have dropped their seventh studio album, Beneath the Eyrie. The Tom Dalgety-produced album was recorded at Dreamland Recordings, which is near Woodstock, New York. Beneath the Eyrie was inspired by the studio’s eerie surroundings, as its located within a remote, converted church, and according to a statement, the 12 tracks contain “tales of witches, Daniel Boone, misfits, and other characters that fit utterly into the band’s inherent weirdness.”

John Lennon – “Imagine”

A newly unearthed tape conversation has revealed that the Beatles intended to release more records after what fans assumed to be their farewell album, Abbey Road. Beatles historian Mark Lewisohn has created Hornsey Road, a new stage show that uses tape, film, photographs, new audio mixes, and his own collection of memorabilia and anecdotes to tell the tale of the making of Abbey Road. According to the Guardian, Abbey Road was not always set to become the iconic quartet’s final album.

INXS – “Never Tear Us Apart”

A new trailer for Mystify, which is a documentary about the late INXS frontman Michael Hutchence, arrived earlier this week. The film is set to look at the Australian musician’s life, highlighting the events leading up to his untimely 1997 death. Mystify will feature testimonies from Hutchence’s closest friends and family, in addition to previously unseen footage of the renowned star.
