Gutter Twins

In this day and age of record labels soon (but not soon enough) to be wiped out, I'm not sure why two people with such clout need to pony up to a label, but ...

Sub Pop has signed the Gutter Twins, aka two of the alt-rock era's greatest frontmen, Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan.

Or, you could say, re-signed: Back in the early 90s, Sub Pop released two albums by Dulli's band the Afghan Whigs and a few singles by Lanegan's band Screaming Trees; Lanegan also released several solo albums on the label.

Fugazi Book

This is probably the only release you'll see again from the defunct band ...

Most known for following the formative years of hip hop, skateboarding and American hardcore, photographer Glen E. Friedman will be putting out a brand new book titled Fugazi: Keep Your Eyes Open.

The new book will feature never-before-seen photos of the band and will come out September 3, twenty years to the day of Fugazi's first show. Speaking with Boing Boing, Friedman said, "Anyone who orders the book from now until the end of July will receive it postage paid and shipped within 2 weeks (that's at your door as much as a month before the official release)."

D-Day for Webcasters

Well it's almost here. There's all kinds of stories coming out today regarding internet radio's deadline. The best place to follow them is on Wired.

The good news is .. "SoundExchange told webcasters and Congresspeople yesteday that his organization will not enforce the new royalty rates on Monday."

The bad news, in my opinion, is that a lot of the smaller stations (I.E. the best ones) will die out. I don't think these small guys are going to step up and start paying these bullshit higher rates.

The New Foo ...

"It has always been my dream to mix Steely Dan with No Means No," Dave Grohl tells Billboard of the eclectic sound of the sixth Foo Fighters album, tentatively titled "Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace" and due Sept. 25 via RCA. "If anybody is going to do it, I'd love to be that guy."

Indeed, the 12-song set may throw some fans for a loop, as tracks like "Let It Die" and "Erase Replace" make drastic stylistic shifts in a matter of seconds. "There's four-piece rock band sh*t, but then there are songs where the middle sections turn into this mass orchestrated swarm and ridiculous time signatures," Grohl says of the new material.

Continue story here.

Track listing follows:

"The Pretender"
"Let It Die"
"Erase Replace"
"Long Road to Ruin"
"Come Alive"
"Stranger Things Have Happened"
"Cheer Up Boys, Your Makeup Is Running"
"Summer's End"
"The Ballad of the Beaconsfield Miners"
"But Honestly"

White Chalk

PJ Harvey is to release a new album later this year.

The singer's seventh studio album 'White Chalk' will come out on September 24.

Harvey began work on the follow-up to 2004's 'Uh Huh Her', last year with producer Flood and John Parish, who also worked on her 'To Bring You My Love' and 'Is This Desire?' albums in 1995 and 1998 respectively.

The new album also features the singer's long term collaborators Eric Drew Feldman and Jim White from The Dirty Three.
