White Denim Premier New Video, Add Tour Dates

Austin-based White Denim have been a staple on the city’s rock scene for a couple years, and now the band is looking to reach ears in other states. The band will be embarking on the second leg of their North American tour starting in May.

The group also recently debuted a new video on Pitchfork. The video accompanies the song “Drugs” and is confusing, to say the least. It involves the band and a lot of toilet paper. Check it out.

Shit Robot Debuts Hot Chip Remix

Hot Chip’s Alex Taylor has remixed Shit Robot’s track “Losing My Patience” (which he conveniently lent vocals to on the original). The remix is part of the new Shit Robot single, which features the original version of “Losing My Patience.”

Along with Hot Chip’s remix, the single features a Unabombers’ remix and a dub version. The single will be out April 18th on DFA records. You can hear the Hot Chip remix below.

Shit Robot debuted a visual-heavy live performance at this year’s SXSW, dubbed the “Shit Robot Show”. He continued the moment throughout March, stopping by Terminal 5 to help send of LCD Soundsystem last week.

Gregg Gillis allowed himself a couple weeks of rest, staying in his hometown Pittsburg for an entire two weeks before heading back out on tour.

Girl Talk’s ridiculous tour schedule has Gillis back on the road through July (!) and the performer has kindly added second shows in Chicago, Minneapolis, Seattle, Denver, and Los Angeles.

Gillis has also been nominated for a Performing Woodie at the 2011 mtvU Woodie Awards. Take a gander at Girl Talk’s insane schedule and if you haven’t already, download the newest album All Day for free right here!
