While the future of England's Tindersticks remains uncertain, lead vocalist Stuart A. Staples has recorded his second solo album, Leaving Songs. Set for a June 6 release through Beggars Banquet, Leaving Songs was written over the last year and recorded at the Nashville studio of Lambchop's Mark Nevers, with Dave Boulter, Neil Fraser, Thomas Belhom, and Tindersticks collaborators Terry Edwards and Gina Foster all contributing to the album.
Among the record's 10 tracks are two duets, one with Maria McKee ("This Road Is Long") and one with Lhasa de Sela ("That Leaving Feeling"). Staples' 2005 solo debut, Lucky Dog Recordings '03-'04, which was never released in the U.S., will be included as a bonus disc with Leaving Songs.

Onward flows the Riverrun Project, Underworld's series of innovative mp3 packages containing original half-hour-ish compositions and extensive art, each appearing in download-only format on the band's website. Underworld's Karl Hyde and Rick Smith unveiled the project last November, when they released the first bundle "Lovely Broken Thing", followed by "Pizza for Eggs" in December. Now, on Monday, June 5, the pioneering techno duo will release the third and final aural/visual package, titled "I'm a Big Sister, and I'm a Girl, I'm a Princess, and This is
My Horse", available for ?5 from underworldlive.com.
The project emerged from a desire to take music from the studio and make it readily available for the masses. Said Hyde of the process, "Creatively we get to write and publish new work in ways that suit us, offering a much needed alternative to our traditional album scheduling."
Before the band gets all 'traditional' again (like that'll happen), on June 10 Underworld will issue a Riverrun retrospective called "The Misterons Mix", containing music from the sonically varied first three releases, along with tons of photographs and album art. But you can only secure this special release if you've purchased the rest of the mp3 bundles. Alas, dry your eyes, you penny-pinching techno lovers in this post-Napster world: you can still hear new Underworld material on their live web broadcasts. They've posted a recent virtual concert, courtesy of Dutch radio station VPRO, on underworldlive.com.
And it doesn't end there. Underworld will continue to spoil fans with various 12" releases throughout the summer, with remixes by Paul Woolford, Pete Heller, Pig and Dan, and Robag Wruhme scheduled. In October, V2 will release the soundtrack to Anthony Minghella's new film Breaking & Entering, on which Hyde and Smith collaborated with composer Gabriel Yared. They're also working on new material, as well as music for the forthcoming Danny Boyle film Sunshine.
The Go! Team Want Kevin Shields
The British cheerleader dance group the Go! Team are looking to hire My Bloody Valentine's Kevin Shields to produce their second album. Shields has already completed a remix of the group's songs "Huddle Formation" and "Ladyflash," both of which are off of Thunder, Lightning, Strike. Go! Team leader Tim Parton told NME.com, "We're looking to get him onboard in some capacity. I'll probably just send him the album and say, 'What do you think? What are you gonna do on that?' and he'll come in and make some noise, get his tremolo arm out and rip it up like that. He always said he wanted to do a garage version of the Jackson 5, and he saw that in us." The band hopes to begin recording the new album in Brighton next month for a spring/summer 2007 release.
Parton added, "In it's current form I'm a bit worried that it's a bit too poppy. It's the catchiest thing I've ever written and as soon as I wrote it, I thought, 'Fuck! Did I write that?' We'll see if we can give it the Go! Team treatment and make it noisy enough to put out there." The Go! Team have just completed a series of tour dates in the UK with the Flaming Lips and have signed on to join Wayne Coyne for further dates during an American tour beginning in July. They have also locked in a few festival spots including ones at Ireland's Oxygen, Chicago's Lollapalooza, Scotland's T in the Park and Richard Branson's V Festival in the UK.
