Rounding up the latest release news…

So, whilst Warpaint are taking way longer than I’d like to sign off on a follow-on to 2010’s acclaimed ‘The Fool’, the band have at least staved off fans impatience by sharing a bit of a new track. It’s titled ‘Love Is To Die’, and backs an ad for Calvin Klein’s ‘fall’ jeans line. Fall for all half-a-minute of it now, and/or at any of the dates Warpaint are playing later this month.

Having apparently had a drastic stylistic sea-change, The Dead Weather‘s Jack White, Alison Mosshart et al have given an advance warning on a packet of twin-track singles they’re soon to release as a serial. Starting with ‘Open Up (That’s Enough)’ and ‘Rough Detective’, the plan is to release new tracks in pairs till 2015, at which stage all the singles, plus a number of LP-only tracks, will be gathered onto an album. Blurb on all that is on this page, as is this is a sample of ‘Open Up (That’s Enough)’.

On-off dance-noise-o-nauts Atari Teenage Riot are on again, and with Rowdy Superstar as MC in place of founder member Carl Crack, who died in 2001. Whilst the trio are still to confirm anything LP or single-wise, they are playing a show at London’s Heaven on 24 Oct, and have released a clip featuring a TBA new track in the meantime.

Four Tet yesterday let his seventh LP, ‘Beautiful Rewind’, be streamed “only for a while” ahead of its imminent release. In fact, he’s already taken it down, so that’s fun. But at least we know it’s on the way, eh?

Finally, it’s vicar’s friend Rihanna oversexing everything as per in the ‘explicit’ edit of new single/clip ‘Pour It Up’.
