CHVRCHES debuts new song at Austin City Limits — listen

 

CHVRCHES are still touring strong fir their debut album, The Bones of What You Believe. Recently, the group has been performing a brand new song that’s appeared on setlists under serveral odd working titles: “Richard Pryor”, “Gene Wilder”, and “Eddie Murphy”.

CHVRCHES currently have no timetable for the release of their sophomore album: “We’re not going to put out anything we aren’t happy with. That could take four months, it could take two years. It’s too early to talk about new songs, because nothing is finished. We do most of our work in the studio together – it’s fine for one person to come up with something, but it’s not a Chvrches song until it’s been bounced back and forth between the three of us.”

 

Watch Foo Fighters’ Cover of Roky Erickson’s “Two Headed Dog.”

The Foo Fighters take on Roky Erickson’s psychedelic classic “Two Headed Dog (Red Temple Prayer)” to celebrate 40 years of Austin City Limits.

PBS’ live music TV show Austin City Limits is gearing up to celebrate its 40th season starting Saturday, October 4 and though they’ve already celebrated that occasion with teaser performances from Nine Inch Nails and Beck, they’ve enlisted another crew of ’90s alt-rock legends to herald the first episode. Friday, Foo Fighters shared a blitzing cover of psych-rock explorer Roky Erickson’s “Two Headed Dog.” Though the cover is a fairly faithful representation of the Erickson’s raspy original, Dave Grohl’s take offers a refreshingly freewheeling side of the Foos. If nothing else, it serves heighten anticipation for the October 17 debut of Grohl’s Sonic Highways show and the November 10 release of the album of the same name.
