Happy International Women’s Day

leave a comment »

The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli

With great confidence I can assure you women are stronger than men. Today is a day to celebrate that strength.

Please be sure to always be thankful for the women in your life – I truly believe that without their care, this planet would fall apart.

Be Rad. Enjoy.

PS: As I’ve done in the past, a special edition of FFFFound! Friday celebrating women will be posted tomorrow.

The Strokes are officially back

via Rough Trade

Over on the Rough Trade website you will find the above picture along with the tracklist for The Strokes fourth official LP, Angles (not angels with halos, but rather angles with degrees). Angles drops on March 21 in Europe and March 22 here in the USA. I don’t know about you kiddos, but I sure am excited. I don’t know how long I’ve been waiting for this, or wait, actually, I know exactly. It’s been 5 years! Anyway, here’s the tracklist:

1. Machu Picchu
2. Under Cover of Darkness
3. Two Kinds of Happiness
4. You’re So Right
5. Taken For A Fool
6. Games
7. Call Me Back
8. Gratisfaction
9. Metabolism
10. Life Is Simple In The Moonlight

Lookin’ good right?! As stated on Rough Trade, “Under Cover Of Darkness” will be the first single bestowed upon us, but no word was given on when that single will drop. Hopefully very very soon. Oh, geez. So excited. Cue Le Tigre!

(UPDATE: No more than a minute after I posted this, The Strokes put up a new mini-site for information regarding Angles. To sum it up, “Under Cover Of Darkness” will be heard on the radio starting February (that’s only a few days away!) and more Spring tour dates will also soon be announced. Check out the mini-site, here.) Still cue Le Tigre, cause I’m so excited!

I’m sure everyone – or at least the core Strokes fans – dusted off the demos and rarities in the dry spell of Strokes material: “In Her Prime” is such a nice little gem.

Sébastien Tellier announced his new album

leave a comment »

My favorite Frenchman Sébastien Tellier has announced, in video form, that he is indeed working on a  new album. Watch the video below.

Furthermore, Sébastien Tellier has joined the ranks of Twitter. Nice.

Sébastien Tellier has been dubbed the new Serge Gainsbourg and if you have not checked him or his music out yet, well, you don’t know what you’re missing.

Be Rad. Enjoy.

Wolf Moon: First full moon of 2010

with one comment

I love astronomy! As a third grader that’s what I wanted to be. Things change, but I am still quite obsessed with space. Tonight, January 29, 2010, marks the first full moon of 2010. If you remember the last full moon was a blue one on New Year’s Eve. This full moon is not only the first of the year but it also going to be the biggest (14% wider) and brightest (30% brighter), as the moon is in its perigee.

The beauty of celestial objects is something I think modern human beings generally take for granted. Enjoy the full moon tonight!

Bonus mp3: Howling At The Moon (Sha-La-La) by The Ramones

Be Rad. Enjoy.
