Bruce Springsteen has posted some info about his Record Store Day release.
American Beauty is a collection of songs I cut at home. Upon revisiting them for High Hopes I recognized their potential and Ron Aniello and I worked on them until we’d turned them into the music before you. In the song “American Beauty,” I get to sing in a part of my range I don’t often visit and that along with its ‘guitar wall of sound’ gives it a little ‘exile on E Street’ power. “Mary Mary” is a lovely mystery, a small piece of heartbreak poetry that sneaks up on you with its slippery grove, punctuated string section and spectral lyrics.

There’s so much music out there; there’s so much stuff that sounds like Haim or CHVRCHES or Vampire Weekend that I’m full. The thing I’m hungry for is not that.

No disrespect, but for me to make that stuff was kind of out of the question.

An Aphex Twin album from 1994, titled Caustic Window, that never saw official release cropped up on Discogs recently, with a seller asking for more than $13,000 for their test press. After negotiations between Rephlex Records and the seller, it appears that a complicated deal to distribute 500 downloads via Kickstarter for about $16 has been established, with the physical copy being sold on eBay after the completion of the campaign. The last album of entirely new music from Aphex Twin was released in 2001.

Spraynard are back together and will be working on a new album.
we were really tempted to announce the end of our hiatus tomorrow so everyone would think it was an April Fool’s joke… but we decided it’s probably more kind to just be honest with everyone. we have started writing new music and hope to release an LP at some point in the next year or so. oh, and we’re playing THE FEST. i think that gets announced tomorrow? seriously, this is not an April Fool’s joke. we’re really doing stuff again. maybe we’ll go on tour soon? who cares? we can do whatever we want now.

Wavves and Cloud Nothings are collaborating together.
Describing the origins of the project, Baldi told Exclaim!, "I woke up one morning hungover in Paris, which is where I usually live, and I just had a text on my phone that was like, 'Yo, wanna make a record together?' I was like, '...Okay!' And that was it. It sounded fun." Baldi said the process was "super easy" and that the songs will be released at some point.
