Pitchfork TV begins airing tomorrow Monday, April 7th. They promise videos, interviews, concerts and such. I am ecstatic. Although most cds they acclaim are crappy now, this should be a great thing for music. HERE IS THE LINK
MONDAY APRIL 7: BETA LAUNCH
loudQUIETloud: A Film About the Pixies // One Week Only
The Pixies' 2004 reunion tour was a long time coming, and this documentary follows the legendary band from their first rehearsals and warm-up tour, to Sigur Rós' Icelandic studio, to the climactic final show. Directed by Steven Cantor and Matthew Galkin; Daniel Lanois provided the score.
Liars // Juan's Basement
Originally developed for the Plum TV network, Juan's Basement made its first splash in the blogosphere with performances from Menomena, Vampire Weekend, and Dr. Dog. Now produced exclusively by Pitchfork, creator Juan Pieczanski interviews and shoots performances from independent music's most vital artists. For the show's Pitchfork.tv debut, Liars drop by for an exclusive session featuring material from their self-titled LP and 2006's Drums Not Dead, as well as chat about the new songs, drug experiences, and what it's like to be hit by a car.
Man Man // Daytripping
Last spring, we took a day trip to Philly to hang out with gypsy-pop masterminds Man Man while they put the finishing touches on their forthcoming third album, Rabbit Habits. They didn't tell us they'd be firing off bottle rockets in the street and wrestling dogs into bathtubs when we got there. First aired in Forkcast in June of 2007, this is Pitchfork.tv's first-ever production.
Jay Reatard // Pitchfork Live
