two new weezer albums...  yeay?

Weezer’s surprise cover album is half karaoke, half internet meme
The band’s viral cover of Toto’s “Africa” was rapidly eclipsed by its version of TLC’s “No Scrubs” — a sincere jam from a cheeky album.

(...) The meme is a fitting one, given that Toto’s “Africa” is well known to be one of the most beloved songs of the internet — and the joke’s expansion into an entire album is a clever marketing ploy. But Weezer’s album is more than just a fun nostalgia trip for fans; it’s also clever stealth promo for the band’s upcoming March release, The Black Album.


(some folks will be excited)

The teal album should have been a teal single with Africa on the a-side and happy together on the b-side...

New Idlewild "Interview Music" out April 5th.

They released the first track "Dream Variations" yesterday and it's absolutely killer.  My initial reaction was it starts out as Idlewild but morphs into a Super Furry Animals.  I later update it to this

Totally digging the transition it makes from what the band does best with a driving bass line  and then slowly morphing into a 60s pop haze.  That keyboard hook is going to be stuck in my head for weeks.  Looking forward to whole album!

The origin of the joke comes from Donald Fagen saying "nice" in Steely Dan's "Hey 69".

My better half informs me that the song is actually called "Hey Nineteen."

Looks like VW took LCD SOundsystem's idea for lazy album covers and ran with it.
