New Neil Halstead Video - "Paint A Face" (Stereogum Premiere)

To recap: Neil Halstead, a founding member of Slowdive and the singer/main songwriter of Mojave 3, released his sophomore solo record Oh! Mighty Engine this past July on Jack Johnson's Brushfire Records (the solo debut was on 4AD). The Emmett Malloy-directed video for Oh! Mighty's "Paint A Face" includes Halstead performing alone with his band or on-stage or on waves, looking Will Oldham-like throughout. When we posted "Paint A Face" in pure-audio form, I found his self-described "nylon rock" akin to "Kings of Convenience + Iron & Wine + Cornwall, England + a warm, slightly melancholic breeze." At that time, I didn't know the video version of the clip would, in fact, be shot in Cornwall or that Halstead would prove such a natural in his wetsuit. - Source

New Flaming Lips - "Space Bible With Volume Lumps"

From the 1,000 Skeleton March to the long-brewing (and delayed) sci-fi flick Christmas In Mars, to name a pair, no doubt the Flaming Lips are into their Holidays. The latter's been a longtime coming: Wayne Coyne & Co. started working on Christmas in 2001 and finished filming in 2005. Christmas, which Coyne wrote and directed, debuted this past May, but I haven't seen it. He plays "The Martian." Other players include Fred Armisen and Isaac Brock. All of that said and skimmed, I have no idea where "Space Bible With Volume Lumps" comes into the picture, though it's the penultimate track. - Source

Glen Hansard and  Markéta Irglová  surprise indie-rock Oscar win likely had a lot to do with a trio of Tony-winning producers acquiring Once's live theater rights so they could bring the flick to Broadway (possibly for the 2010-2011 season). Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick have been tapped to play the leads. - Source
