Some old music and some new

posted by Jason Kottke   Apr 07, 2009

I am really enjoying the new Röyksopp album and the remastered Ten by Pearl Jam. I got turned on to the remastered Pearl Jam by Acts of Volition:

The original producer, Brendan O'Brien, remixed and remastered the tracks and the result is remarkable. It sounds like it was recorded yesterday, instead of on the muddy banks of 1990s grunge. [...] The remixes confirm what I've always thought about Pearl Jam. The label of "grunge" described a new variation of modern (at the time) rock music. Nirvana was grunge, Soundgarden was grunge. Pearl Jam was always just plain old Rock 'n Roll®.

Oh, and the new album by the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs isn't too bad either.

Royksopp just pushed out the video for Happy Up Here, the first single from their forthcoming album, Junior.

Somewhat related: did you know that Amazon sells vinyl? I had no idea.

New stuff from Royksopp

New album called Junior from Royksopp due in late March.

We have a certain schizophrenia — we want to make both energetic and really quiet music.

That's exactly what I like about them. The group also mentions that they'll release an album called Senior near the end of 2009.
