Today in Music News: Tues Feb 15

How cool is this? Cake used their own clothing scraps to make the booklet for their “Bound Away” single.

Sadies guitarist/singer Dallas Good fell and broke his leg in Saskatoon before the band’s gig there, and now the rest of their tour is in jeopardy. Get well soon, Dallas!

Sleigh Bells’ Derek Miller talked to NME about his recent studio work with Beyonce and Diplo:

“I actually have no idea if the collaboration will ever be released. Beyoncé works with whoever she wants to work with, probably 30 or 40 producers. It’s a totally different world from what I’m used to. So for me it’s just exciting to hear something that I worked on but I can’t really say any more than that.”

Radiohead are now taking pre-orders for their new album, The King of Limbs, and the digital version of the disc will be released this Saturday.

In some unsurprising but still very cool news, PS I Love You and Diamond Rings have collaborated on the new single “Leftovers”. Having already released a seven-inch together as well as an upcoming tour, the new song finds Diamond Rings’ John O’Regan singing over a track laid down by PS I Love You. You’ll want to grab this on March 29th.

The Flaming Lips said they’d release a new song in each month of 2011, and now they’ve put out “Two Blobs Fucking”.

“Two Blobs Fucking” was created specifically for iPhone-type devices. Imagine the lo-fi symphonic joy that you, along with family, friends, pets, and others, will create at the touch of a button. The more devices, the more harmonic possibilities can be constructed. You and your device, at one with the music, become the orchestra, just as the Gods of Technology naturally intended it to be.

The contest to win the 1967 Mercury Cougar featured on the cover of Neko Case’s Middle Cyclone has begun, and the winner will be selected on March 18. Tickets are now on sale, and the cost supports 826 National. You can also support the cause by purchasing a Nek0-designed shirt from Poketo.

Mogwai’s awesomely named new record Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will is streaming for free right now over at Exclaim!.
