Decidely shoegazey with swirling textures, bubbling electronics and haunting choruses, "Alphaville" sounds like a distinct ecosystem captured in digital sound.

England’s Working for a Nuclear Free City worked on their new album The Jojo Burger Tempest from a British warehouse and a French cottage and, over the course of just a few days, came up with 2,800 song ideas, so they say. The latest evidence of this prolific streak of electronic rock goodness is “Alphaville”, the record’s second single. Decidely shoegazey with swirling textures, bubbling electronics and haunting choruses, “Alphaville” sounds like a distinct ecosystem captured in digital sound.

Portland's Horse Feathers offer up a moving cover of Nirvana's "Drain You" to top off a strong year of musical output for the band.

Portland’s Horse Feathers has already impressed this year with Thistled Spring. Matthew Fiander wrote that Justin Ringle’s singing was in top form and that the album evoked the “sound of rebirth” and went on to discuss how the record ” is bracing because it refuses to wallow anymore. It recognizes all the past’s ache, and gives it a sound, but the album turns itself over to hope in the end.” The band has more in store for us this year with a superb 7-inch single releasing next Tuesday, with a moving cover of Nirvana’s “Drain You” as the A-side, backed by “Bonnet of Briars”. We are extremely proud to present the online premiere of “Drain You” this afternoon. Make sure you pick up the 7-inch release too because, you know, vinyl really does rule.

1970s TV classic finally gets the deluxe DVD treatment and you can check out the trailer premiere on PopMatters today.

On 23 November, Time Life is releasing the complete series box set for ‘70s TV classic The Six Million Dollar Man. I confess to following this show religiously as a kid along with the Bionic Woman and one of the highlights of my very early childhood was meeting Richard Anderson (Oscar Goldman) in Denver at a children’s hospital. The set includes 40 DVDs covering the show’s five seasons along with 30 hours of bonus features. It’s treasure trove for ‘70s TV geeks as it also includes the three pilot TV movies and the three reunion shows. Today, we present the premiere of the DVD trailer along with an extra clip to whet your appetite. Yep, I want this one for Christmas.
