Josh Homme remixes Grinderman’s “Mickey Mouse”

It’s not a big secret that Josh Homme and his wife Brody Dalle like the work of Nick Cave’s Grinderman project.  Cave’s newest band has gotten rave reviews from press and the rockstar couple as well.  That shouldn’t be much of a surprise, as Grinderman has an edge and eeriness to it that many of the Queens of the Stone Age projects have.  Listen to the song after the jump!

Coachella line-up announced. Big acts, few surprises.

The Coachella line-up was officially released late last night.  Waiting for the announcement has become over the years part of the tradition and buzz of Coachella itself.  Well, it’s finally here and we don’t have to guess our spread rumors about the bands playing this year.  The line-up is heavy at the top with Kings of Leon, Kanye West and Arcade Fire all being huge touring acts.  From there we are greeted with a mix of local bands, Coachella regulars and Indie projects.  We would have liked to see one of those huge surprise headliners (Paul McCartney, Ozzy with Slash, Red Hot Chili Peppers- where are you guys?) and we still might with a late addition, but it doesn’t look too good for now.  (more…)
