Beastie Boys go hardcore

Somehow I was unaware the Beastie Boys released a hardcore EP in the 90s. Aglio E Olio is an 8 track EP clocking in at around 10 minutes. I love it, who needs a 10 minute prog rock epic when you can have 8 whole tracks in that time!? Anyway, I’m looking forward to checking this out. Streaming links and more details here:

Stone Gossard (of Pearl Jam) is doing stuff

Gossard’s side project, Painted Shield, just released a single and it sounds nothing like Pearl Jam. Instead, we’re treated to something with more electronic flare and a lot less classic rock. I was pleasantly surprised by “I Am Your Country”, and highly recommend hanging around until at least 1:40 into the track where shit gets real. Here’s the article with more details, followed by the track.

The Spice

I’m not much of a movie goer, largely ignoring important details like directors, release dates, actors, and the industry in general. However, Dune is sweet and the trailer released today for the upcoming movie also looks sweet. Not to mention Batista and Aquaman both appear in the film!
