Arctic Monkeys have come a long way since their neo-Britpop "I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor" days. Who'd have thought they'd ever have a video featuring tractors of all things...

A decent sized audience caught PAPA's set before the Head and the Heart performed and they the buzz after their set was positive.

I randomly ended up catching the band PAPA at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on the third night of CMJ. I just had to see something even though I wasn’t out long. Fortunately, I was pleased with what I saw and so was the audience. I’ve posted a clip of their final song that evening below as well as some photos. The band is currently on tour with Cold War Kids before their tour turns to Europe (including Iceland Airwaves) and then back through Canada and the West Coast of the US. You can visit the official website of the band here to check out the tour dates and their music.

Rockstar Games crashed the New York Film Festival with a concert of music from GTA V featuring the composers, Tangerine Dream.

If you haven’t heard about Grand Theft Auto V yet, its surprising given that the game’s newest iteration has had over $1 billion in sales in just a matter of weeks. For their game, Rockstar Games has gone all out in compiling an in-game soundtrack, releasing three album/compilations from the more than forty-hours of music that can be heard on various game radio stations. Original score and songs were crafted by Tangerine Dream, Flying Lotus, Twin Shadow and many others. And to celebrate the release of the game and the music, Rockstar partnered with the Film Society of Lincoln Center to present the unique ‘Live from Los Santos’ concert, with performances of the game’s score, live with a visual backdrop of scenes from the game, at the Church of St. Paul the Apostle in New York. This last minute addition to the New York Film Festival also included an afterparty at (le) Poisson Rouge, featuring DJ sets from Flying Lotus and Giles Peterson but we only have pictures from the church below as well as the game’s trailer and the playlist of songs Flying Lotus selected for his in-game station. You can Browse the three disc’s worth of songs that are on the official soundtrack and purchase the album online now, but if you are patient, Rockstar filmed the concert, so maybe there will be a commercial release of it in the near future.
