BBC Radio 1's "Live Lounge" will join the radio-show-compilation ranks when it releases an eponymous double disc set on September 18 in the UK, according to a report from NME.com.
In addition to "Live Lounge" in-studio performances of standards like Outkast's "Ms. Jackson" and Basement Jaxx's "Romeo", the compilation also features a number of covers, including Franz Ferdinand's version of Gwen Stefani's "What You Waiting For", Embrace's cover of D12's "How Come", and-- just what we all needed-- another cover of "Hey Ya", this time by "Pop Idol" winner Will Young.
Other cover selections include Coldplay's "The Scientist" by Natasha "Unwritten" Bedingfield, the Darkness' "I Believe in a Thing Called Love" by Lemar, Hard-Fi's "Living for the Weekend" by Sugababes, and Pharrell's "Frontin'" by Jamie Cullum.
Shockingly, nobody covers "Crazy" on this compilation.

Nimble, often instrumental, and powerful as hell, Electrelane isn't the easiest beast to brand, but we love them all the same. (And not just because guitarist Mia Clarke is a Pitchfork contributor.) They love us too, and to show it, the four-piece has assembled a rarities compilation to whet fans' appetites until the next Electrelane album arrives.
Entitled Singles, B-Sides & Live, this monster drops on August 22 in the U.S. (and the day before in the UK) through Too Pure.
The collection features 16 tracks, including A- and B-sides released on Indenial/Skint, Fierce Panda, the group's own Let's Rock! label, and Too Pure. It includes a kickass cover of Springsteen's "I'm on Fire"), a John Peel session selection ("Oh Sombra!"), and three live tracks (including the band's stab at Leonard Cohen's "Halleluj-- psyche!-- "The Partisan").
Electrelane's four steadfast pistons-- Clarke, Emma Gaze, Ros Murray, and Verity Susman-- are currently in Berlin recording their fourth album after spending some time pursuing personal interests and solo/side projects (Verity as Vera November, contributing a track to the forthcoming Jens Lekman-curated Arthur Russell tribute; Ros in Ray Rumours, Sisisi Sisisi Sisi, Las Pulpas, and probably a few more obscure Iberian lo-fi bands, and Clarke writing for The Wire, Venus, and you-know-who).
No release date has being bandied about for the new album yet, so it would be safe to assume "beginning of 2007" at the earliest.
Singles, B-Sides & Live:
01 Film Music
02 Come On
03 Le Song
05 John Wayne
06 I Love You My Farfisa
07 I Want to Be the President
08 I Only Always Think
09 I've Been Your Fan Since Yesterday
10 I'm on Fire
11 Long Dark
12 Oh Sombra! (John Peel session)
13 More Than This (live)

A grizzly bear, Boog (voice of Martin Lawrence), makes friends with a mule-deer, Elliot (Ashton Kutcher), in the forthcoming animated film Open Season, set to hit theaters September 29. But that's not the only friendship between wild animals involved with the film, as former Replacements bandmates Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson have also rekindled their bond for its music. Following March's Replacements best-of reunion, Westerberg and Stinson have joined together for two songs on the Open Season soundtrack, due September 26 via Lost Highway.
The disc includes ten Westerberg originals (he and Ramin Djawadi scored the film), two of which ("Love You in the Fall" and "Right to Arm Bears") feature Stinson on bass. Pete Yorn and Deathray each perform a Westerberg track as well, titled "I Belong (Reprise)" and "Wild As I Wanna Be", respectively.
The soundtrack is also home to Deathray's "I Wanna Lose Control (Uh Oh)" and the Takling Heads' "Wild Wild Life".
01 Paul Westerberg - "Meet Me in the Meadow"
02 Paul Westerberg - "Love You in the Fall"
03 Paul Westerberg - "I Belong"
04 Deathray - "I Wanna Lose Control (Uh Oh)"
05 Paul Westerberg - "Better Than This"
06 Talking Heads - "Wild Wild Life"
07 Paul Westerberg - "Right to Arm Bears"
08 Paul Westerberg - "Good Day"

10 Deathray - "Wild As I Wanna Be"
11 Paul Westerberg - "Whisper Me Luck"

No one-hit lovefools, enduring Swedish pop rockers the Cardigans are poised to finally release their sixth long-player in the U.S. Nettwerk will issue the 11-track affair, titled Super Extra Gravity, on September 19-- although the most devout Cards fans have been rocking the European import for nearly a year now.
Pitchfork caught up with charming chief Cardigan Nina Persson to discuss the release's delay, her film debut, a cancelled U.S. tour, Japanese audiences, and yes, "Lovefool".
Not too excitingly, the prolonged U.S. release boils down to label politics. Quite simply, said Persson, "we're signed to Universal Records worldwide and they passed on this record as well, like they did with the previous one [2003's Long Gone Before Daylight, which didn't see U.S. release until the following year, via Koch]." Luckily Nettwerk came around this time to deliver Super Extra Gravity stateside, featuring the following bonus-free tracklist:
01 Losing a Friend
03 Drip Drop Teardrop
05 I Need Some Fine Wine and You, You Need to Be Nicer
06 Don't Blame Your Daughter [Diamonds]
07 Little Black Cloud
08 In the Round
09 Holy Love
10 Good Morning Joan
11 And Then You Kissed Me II
Then there's the fall U.S. tour, announced a few weeks back and then swiftly cancelled, for "family reasons," says Nina. "Three guys in the band have small children, so I think we just realized it wouldn't [be the best thing] for those families. It's just unfortunate that they had already announced it-- we hadn't completely made up our minds [yet]."
Persson assured that the band would try to make it back to the U.S. sometime next year.
While she won't be gracing U.S. stages, Persson has been gracing the silver screen, starring in God Willing, a film by first-time directing duo Amir Chamdin and Erik Eger. "It's a small, pretty love story," Persson said of the black-and-white work, in which she plays a Finnish tango dancer in 1975 Stockholm. Persson lends her voice to the flick's soundtrack as well, which includes a rendition of the White Stripes' "Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground".
So okay, "Lovefool". "We really hated it for years, and we felt like we were playing a cover when we were doing it. But now I think we're sort of past that so we can [perform] it, and appreciate that it's a good song again, and do it without feeling like we're doing it with irony. It's funny because it's been a curse in many ways, but I think we're over it, we've forgiven it."
The Cardigans have spent the better part of the summer playing "Lovefool" and newer hits at festivals across the globe, and just wrapped up a stint in Japan-- where they didn't get quite the reception they were used to: "The Japanese audience...[is] so respectful that they're completely quiet in between the songs. Wherever else you play you're expecting applause or people yelling, but they're just dead quiet, so you start thinking about what you did wrong. We played Tokyo and Osaka and the Tokyo crowd was definitely a little bit wilder than the Osaka one, but that does not mean wild at all."
Next up: the mighty V Festivals, followed by fest dates in Denmark, Brazil, and Belarus, where Lord knows how they respond to live music.
We bet he looks good on the dancefloor, but does Stephen Malkmus sound good on the dancefloor? We'll find out August 28, when Domino UK releases the Kindling for the Master remix EP, featuring four club-ready takes on the title track. "Kindling", from last year's Face the Truth, gets tweaked by Hot Chip, Canadian experimentalist Polmo Polpo, Emperor Machine (aka Andy Meecham of Chicken Lips), and Norwegian space disco king Prins Thomas under his Major Swellings alias.
A1 Kindling for the Master (Emperor Machine Remix - Vocal)
B1 Kindling for the Master (Major Swellings Remix - Vocal)
C1 Kindling for the Master (Hot Chip Remix)
D1 Kindling for the Master (Polmo Polpo Remix)
Not much Malkmus news to report at the moment, other than that he's got one show coming up (September 8 at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland, Oregon) and that the Wowee Zowee reissue is coming out in November.
