Listen to “Andrew Eldritch Is Moving Back to Leeds” and check out the cover art and tracklist below. The Mountain Goats lineup on Goths is a quartet, featuring Matt Douglas on woodwinds.

Donald Glover recently called into REAL 92.3’s “Big Boy’s Neighborhood” for an interview, as Complex points out. During their discussion, he touched on his latest Childish Gambino album (“Awaken, My Love!”), his award-winning TV show “Atlanta” (which he confirmed will return in 2018), upcoming roles (as Lando Calrissian and a mysterious Spider-Man character), his Migos shout-out at the Golden Globes, and more. Glover also addressed the rumors about a possible Chance the Rapper collaboration. “I mean, we definitely met up before, you know. I don’t know if I’ll see him again now that he’s won a Grammy,” he said. He continued:
We’ll see what happens, but yeah, we actually, like, sat down in the studio and worked hard for a little bit, you know. We’re both busy, but, like, I think, I mean, when he has, like, a moment when we’ve been sitting down and just working together, I think it’s just, like, about catching a vibe. Like, I really like that project that he did with, you know, the EP that he just put out [Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama]. I guess, like, it was around Christmas. I think that came from just sitting in the studio—from, like, I just wanna hang out with them. I don’t work with people over email anymore. I think it just doesn’t make good work, but it’s just that we have to find the time to, like, sit down together.
Listen to the full interview below; the Chance discussion begins at 15:31. Scroll down for a new photo of Glover with the Star Wars cast.February 21, 2017

David Pajo was once bandmates with Billy Corgan in the supergroup Zwan. (Pajo is also a member of Slint, has worked with Interpol, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and released many albums as a solo artist.) In a new interview with the Kreative Kontrol podcast, Pajo, who has previously expounded on the comical frustrations of working with Corgan, compares the Smashing Pumpkins frontman to Donald Trump, due to Corgan's "millions of dollars," "ego," and "bully mentality." He also said that Corgan "can very convincingly front that he’s a sensitive liberal person, but maybe now that Trump’s made it OK to not act like that, for people like him, he’s gonna start shouting that." (Last year, Corgan appeared on conspiracy theorist Alex Jones' radio show to complain about "social justice warriors" and "socialists.")
Below, check out some quotes from the episode, in which Pajo also talks about Corgan dissing the White Stripes and the possibility of Slint recording together again. And listen to the full episode as well.
When the campaign was happening, I was like, ‘Wow, Trump is so much like Corgan. I’m sure Billy loves this guy. I know he’s a Trump supporter. He has to be. He’s got millions of dollars. He’s got that ego. He loves the bully mentality.’ I don’t keep up with him, and I don’t wanna talk bad about him. But I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he was a Trump supporter. In fact, I’d be more surprised if he wasn’t. ...
When Smashing Pumpkins’ last one or two records didn’t sell that well, Billy went on this rant about how he was disappointed in his fans for not understanding the record and not buying it. That’s such a weird thing to me [laughs]. To scold your fans for not buying your record. But that is the way he thinks. And when bands like the White Stripes and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Interpol were starting up in the New York scene, he would say stuff to me, like, to him they were all just little bands. He was like, the biggest White Stripes sold this much; my records have totally slaughtered them! ...
It’s probably really weird for a lot of people. [Corgan] can very convincingly front that he’s a sensitive liberal person, but maybe now that Trump’s made it OK to not act like that, for people like him, he’s gonna start shouting that.
On the prospect of new Slint music, Pajo added:
I think we enhance each other’s good sides. But just because people live in different parts of the country now, and everybody has their own lives and kids, if we were to write something together, it wouldn’t be loose like it was when we were younger. We’d have to be organized and rent a practice space. I think everybody would be into working together but maybe the personalities involved are too difficult.

On April 7, Los Angeles duo Tashaki Miyaki will release their debut album, The Dream, via Metropolis Records. Today, they’ve shared the music video for the lead single “Girls on T.V.” It’s directed by James Franco, and stars actress Juno Temple (Black Mass, “Vinyl”). Temple “plays an innocent soul seeing Hollywood for the first time,” according to Franco. In a statement, he added that it was inspired by Midnight Cowboy, Fallen Angels, and the Robert Redford movie Electric Horseman. Watch Tashaki Miyaki’s “Girls on T.V.” video below.
Arca has announced a new self-titled album. The record, which follows his 2015 album Mutant, is out April 7 via XL Recordings. It’s his first release for the label. Arca has also shared the opening track, “Piel.” Hear it below. Scroll down for the tracklist and the amazing cover artwork by longtime collaborator Jesse Kanda.
Arca includes the previously shared “Sin Rumbo.” Last year, the artist released a free 14-track project called Entrañas. This past November, he issued a casting call for a mysterious project with Kanda. The only requirement was that applicants “are comfortable being partially nude on camera.”
