The lineup for the The Ally Coalition’s Sixth Annual Talent Show has been announced.
This one brings us a reworking of “Foreign Girls” that features folk rock legend Ani DiFranco, as well as “And, Nothing Is You” which is a remix of “Nothing Is U” that removes most of the electronic effects from the original and replaces them with more acoustic orchestrations.
Again, Jack has said that these tracks can be freely shared and copies, so please do with these as you wish and come back after part four comes out, as I’ll be sure to share them too. Just remember that it takes a bit longer for me to post them as I live in Japan and international shipping can be a real asshole.
Part one can be found here.
The first 7-inches for Bleachers’ third volume of Terrible Thrills have gone out. The A-side is Mitski performing “Let’s Get Married” and the b-side is an alternate version of “Dream of Mickey Mantle.” Rips from the vinyl can be found here. (Jack has encouraged sharing the songs.)
Terrible Thrills Vol 3 comes in the form of a 4 part record club. it will feature bleachers songs from gone now re-imagined by Mitski, Julien Baker, Ani Difranco and MUNA as well as demos and new versions of the songs. The concept behind terrible thrills is to create a final version of an album at the end of its cycle. What that is will take different shapes for different times. This time around is half in the tradition of female artists remaking the songs and part new in re written lyrics and productions. This collection will only be officially released on vinyl and will only be sold this one time as a whole series.
