    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.

    Normally, I'm not much of a third wave ska fan. I find the entire Moon Ska catalogue sleep-inducing (that being said, neither am I one of these I'm-ashamed-to-admit-I-ever-listened-to-ska-in-high-school-music-fans.) But Westbound Train are an entirely different animal. A typical record of theirs boasts knowledge of more influences than your average Boston Phoenix record review.

    Read the Globe's outstanding obituary first, which does full justice to the newly deceased city councilor's strengths while being candid about his weaknesses. Then read the Herald's obit, which is lighter and more hagiographic then the Globe's.

    As for the musings of the Weekly Dig's Paul McMorrow.... I tend to enjoy Paul's stuff a lot, but I'm baffled by his willingness to soft-pedal the more problematic parts of Kelly's background (you know, the anti-black, anti-gay stuff).
