Nellie McKay – indie film & WBGO interview

19th Jul 10 (Mon) Leave a comment

Update: You can now order Home Sweet Mobile Home on Amazon

To piggy back off of this recent post about Nellie McKay‘s upcoming album, Home Sweet Mobile Home (out Sept 28), online music source 24bit added

Before the album drops this fall, however, McKay will record music for and star as struggling New York City singer-songwriter Ramona in Downtown Express, an independent feature film in which her character falls in love with a Russian musician visiting town for a month on a Juilliard scholarship, played by real-life virtuoso violinist Philippe Quint.

She also did an in-studio appearance at WBGO (streaming audio link).  She does some tunes and is interviewed by WBGO’s Michael Bourne.  It was posted over at nelliemckay.com only yesterday (7/18/2010); so I assume it’s recent – even though it seems very Normal As Blueberry Pie-centric.

Daniel Johns (Silverchair) on JJJ

10th Dec 09 (Thu) Leave a comment

Silverchair front-man Daniel Johns called into Australia’s Triple J to give info about the upcoming album.  You can go listen to the 7+ minute interview at Triple J.  He’s back in Australia and has worked on the new songs with his band mates.  Gleaned from the interview… the album currently comes off as “dirtier than Young Modern” (per Daniel), and there is a less frequent use of guitars so far (only on 4 of the 15 or so songs currently in the works).

Who knows how things will turn out, but I think we can expect a new Silverchair album in 2010.  No album name yet… unless it’s gonna be called Fly Fishing. ;)
