Lcd Soundsystem, Stefan Lantschner, Phoenix, The Sonics, Film Biënnale Amsterdam, Double Dagger, Lucie Georger, Hammock, Julia Galdo

New single from the maybe or not last Lcd Soundsystem Lp , their is a immense speculation about the possibility that this could be the last sounds coming from James Murphy and crew , either way the best is to enjoy the new stuff and go watch them live , btw if u wanna see them live hurry up to get tickets because the Europe tour is almost sold out everywhere.

Drunk Girls is the first single to be taken from the new album released May 17.

International film, art, poetry and music cross-over festival.
EYE Film Institute Netherlands presents the Film Biënnale, featuring unique film events at special venues throughout Amsterdam from 7 to 11 April. The programme was created in collaboration with the Museum of Modern Art in New York, which will present a selection drawn from its internationally renowned film collection.

The Film Biënnale showcases film productions which blur the boundaries between different artistic disciplines, merging music, art, theatre and poetry. The festival kicks off with the screening of The Man with the Camera (1929) by Russian film pioneer Dziga Vertov. The Michael Nyman Band will perform the soundtrack as a live accompaniment.

Great stuff from Baltimore's Double Dagger , really fresh sounds with a bunch of very cool influences , its a post-punk with more intensity that could sound something like The Fall with The Death Seat

"Double Dagger’s new EP, Masks, continues in this vein, taking up where their acclaimed 2009 full length, More, left off. Masks presents a series of vignettes, ranging from acerbic to facetious to self-reflective, on the facades we build within our lives. Masks contains some of Double Dagger’s most catchy songs to date, yet characteristically the tone of the album encompasses the abrasive and sarcastic as well as the upbeat and closes with a surprisingly delicate instrumental. The EP was recorded by the band using a necessarily DIY setup, and like More, manages to capture the loudness and energy of Double Dagger’s explosive live performances." thrill jockey
