    Atlantic Records tries a new strategy to get Bjork to deliver her next record.

    Perhaps you've heard of Matthew Barney: art star, director of the insane Cremaster series, and creator of, most recently, another strikingly odd and beautiful film called Drawing Restraint 9. In the new documentary Matthew Barney: No Restraint, director Alison Chernick tries to unpack the methods and madness behind Barney's project, which involved a Japanese whaling ship, solidified whale puke, a crew of skeptical Japanese in jump suits, and 45,000 pounds of petroleum jelly.

    Pour one out for Dave "Disco D" Shayman. Disco D, the producer who introduced Kevin Federline to baile funk and crafted K-Fed's infamous debut single "PopoZao," commnitted suicide on Monday at the age of 26. Catchdubs, the Urb, and the Hollertronix board give him thoughtful eulogies. According to a post by a friend on Hollerboard, a funeral service in Michigan and a memorial service in Washington, DC, are planned for later this week.

    Good luck in Cleveland, Trot.

    Man, this feels weird. I'll miss him, but do agree it was time to cut ties. I don't think he would have liked to be a back-up in Boston, even though that's what he'll probably be doing on the shores of Lake Erie. Let's just hope Wily Mo gets his act together and, uh, Drew gets signed.

    The last couple years have pretty much been a drag.

    Pusha T and Malice in the house that indie-rock built? Oh, fuck yes. Frankly, we've never fully understood why hip-hop touring has failed to keep pace with its commercial unit-shifting power: even if you factor in institutional racism, performer unreliability, and ridiculous ticket prices, you still don't get record-of-the-year candle-men like T.
