A literary/pulp mashup. At its best? That remains to be seen. Author Seth Grahame-Smith must have some real cajones to tamper with a such loved classic as Pride and Prejudice by adding a Zombie story line. This book trailer has a b-movie quality to it; a nod to the cinematic genre, hopefully. This will book could be a great as Danger Mouse’s mashup of the Beatles’ White Album and Jay-Z’s Black Album. Or as far-fetched as the stoner mashup of The Wizard of Oz with Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon.

Do Make Say Think
Other Truths
(Constellation)
Releasing: 20 October


The Toronto group’s sixth album may look like an EP from the song list below, but this is most decidedly a full-length. These songs are quite lengthy and developed, three of them being over 10 minutes each. Hence, there’s no free MP3 of a single song on offer here, but Constellation is offering a mix sampler for your listening pleasure.


SONG LIST
01 Do
02 Make
03 Say
04 Think

Andrew WK
55 Cadillac
(Skyscraper Music Maker/Ecstatic Peace)
Releasing: 7 September (UK) / 8 September (everywhere)


Hmm… the rocker makes a record of solo piano tunes and he says he wants them to sound like songs he’d be playing in a car. There’s a video to try to explain this. But then he is a classically trained musician, so perhaps he’ll pull it off in the end.


SONG LIST
01 Begin the Engine
02 Seeing the Car
03 Night Driver
04 Central Park Cruiser
05 5
06 City Time
07 Car Nightmare
