Wild Belle

Been digging this lately. Turn the bass up for this one - computer speakers won;t do it justice.

Just In Time For Summer!

A "specially designed can" for an "extra smooth pour."

Shut Up and Play the Hits

Trailer for the documentary about the last days of LCD Soundsystem, including the final show at MSG w/ Arcade Fire. Looks pretty good.

New Jack White single, only available via helium balloon.

"Three weeks prior to the April 24 release of his debut album Blunderbuss (Third Man Records/Columbia), Third Man Records has premiered the as yet unreleased Jack White album track "Freedom at 21" exclusively via 1000 flexi-disc records attached to helium balloons launched from the label headquarters in Nashville on April 1st, 2012.

Envisioned as an experiment exploring non-traditional forms of record distribution and a way to get records in the hands of people who don't visit record shops, the label was sure to use biodegradable latex balloons and all-natural twine in the process. Accompanying the balloons were custom postcards with instructions for the finders to submit photos, discovery location and the date on which the record was found, all of which will be incorporated into a website where fans can access the information at

Statistics for similar balloon launches show a recovery rate of approximately 10% so it's quite possible that less than 100 of the 1000 records launched will ever be discovered. Whatever the numbers, the "Freedom at 21" flexi-disc will surely be a highly sought-after collectible for years to come."
