At the intersection of food and music is the IFC original series DINNER WITH THE BAND. An inspired creation born from the minds of producers Darin & Greg Bresnitz, the six preview episodes of the series air each Tuesday night from November 24th until December 29th at 11pm EST/PST on IFC.

Charlotte Gainsbourg - Heaven Can Wait from Charlotte Gainsbourg on Vimeo.
The new video from Charlotte Gainsbourg, "Heaven Can Wait", is ostensibly the first single from her Beck-produced album IRM, due for release in very early 2010. Enjoy.
A brief, though impressive, list of showcasing music acts at SXSW 2010 have been posted on the SXSW website.
The majority of the 200 names we saw look to be either international artists or Austin-based. However, we noticed some favorites in the mix:
-- I Fight Dragons
-- 9th Wonder
-- Jesse Sykes and the Sweet Hereafter
-- We Are Scientists
More names will obviously begin to trickle out after the holiday, but so far, nobody from Memphis has appeared. We'll let you know.
In any event we plan to see you there, so maybe you should click here and ...
The standard-bearers for trip-hop, Bristol natives Massive Attack, have announced complete details on their soon-to-be released new album. Entitled Heligoland, the album will see release on 8 February 2010. Their first studio album in seven years, Heligoland is seen as one of the most hotly anticipated releases of 2010.
Ranked among the most influential bands to come out of British music in the 1990's, Massive Attack had long been believed to reach their creative peak with 1998's seminal release, Mezzanine. Creative fallout and personnel changes within the band left founding members Robert Del Naja (3D) and Grant Marshall (Daddy ...
The duo of Olaf Hilgenfeld and Iftah Gabbai is definitely not your run-of-the-mill techno, disco or jazz. So then, color me intrigued by Skinnerbox & their unusual (and efficient marriage) of disparate styles, particularly when it matches so clearly with the musical calico I'm hearing out of European electronic music lately.
There's a taste of Richie Hawtin meets Mark Farina meets 808 State in these songs. Do I have your attention?
Under the surface, there are also tastes of Herbie Hancock and Quincy Jones influence in this particular collection, dotted with edgy Grace Jones/Nina Hagen/Lene Lovich-esque ...
I guess we're going to start off this Music Monday with a sweet electro track from the remix team of Luca C & Brigante. The remix of Ali Love's new single, "Diminishing Returns" (which is out in limited release) comes from his debut album, due in 2010. You may not know Ali Love off the bat, but if you heard the Chemical Brothers' smash "Do It Again", you've definitely heard his pipes. Enjoy this free track & LETS GO.

"Lisa Go Stick It, I Got My Bonnaroo Ticket" by Gary Chardonnay from Bonnaroo on Vimeo.
I don't know what this is, but I'm posting it in honor of my favorite music festival. Come hell or high water, by hook or by crook, with or without another colloquial southern cliche in this post, I plan on being at Bonnaroo 2010 with a lot of you. Believe it.
Furthermore, a Black Friday pre-sale for Bonnaroo 2010 starts November 27th, 2009 at 12pm EST. Price has not been announced, but here's some information about it. Check it out:

For three years now, we've watched as Beach House has gone from humble, subtly hypnotic Baltimore slack-key-core twosome to a fully realized and accomplished recording act. With the forthcoming release of Teen Dream on their new home label of Sub Pop, the team of Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally will have completed a transformation that has allowed them to take on a new sense of direction in the music and in their lives.
Check out this track, "Norway", from the forthcoming album & head over to Sub Pop for further details on the band and their new record.
