Digital Sessions 

ncubus breaks new ground with concert DVD

Incubus has broken new visual ground as the first musical artist to use the state of the art digital filmmaking that created Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Their just released concert DVD, Morning View Sessions, documents a live studio session from October of last year and utilizes Sony's CineAlta 24P production system, a digital video technology that records at 24-frames per second, comparable in quality to 35mm film. Recorded in 5.1 surround sound, this Immortal Records release is filled with other bonus material like lyrics, backstage footage and a photo gallery. The band can currently be found nationally headlining Honda's Civic Tour through July 4... Also dabbling deeper into the cinematic arts are Josh Homme and Nick Oliveri of Queens Of The Stone Age, as they've produced the majority of the soundtrack for the upcoming film The Dangerous Lives of Alter Boys. Alongside a Stephen Stills and Canned Heat track, these mostly instrumental sessions also feature Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wick. The soundtrack hits store shelves this Tuesday, and the film opens in select cities this weekend. The film also marks the feature-length directorial debut of Peter Care, best known for his video direction of R.E.M. and Depeche Mode. The cover artwork on this Milan Records release is by Spawn artist/creator Todd McFarlane, who also created animated segments within the film... The Pixies are twinkling in the air these days as a new rarities collection is in the works, founder Frank Black has announced new material, and covers of their material sparkle some upcoming new releases. SpinArt Records has announced the July 9 release of a self-titled 9-track CD of rare Pixies sessions from 1987, known affectionately as the Purple Tapes. Long anticipated by loyal fans, these raw recordings are the demos that later procured the band their label deal with 4AD Records. SpinArt is also releasing new music from Black in August -- two separate albums backed by his band The Catholics that promise a cover of Tom Waits' "The Black Rider." The two albums are set to bear the titles Devil's Workshop and Black Letter Day. And I'm particularly interested in hearing the rendition of "Gouge Away" that's being promised as a bonus in the first pressing of the upcoming Papa Roach album, Lovehatetragedy, due at the end of this month on the DreamWorks imprint. David Bowie also steps up to The Pixies' plate this coming Tuesday, as his new album features his take on their song "Cactus." The ISO/Columbia release is titled Heathen; it features stunning cover art and two more intriguing covers: Neil Young's "I've Been Waiting For You" and The Legendary Stardust Cowboy's "I Took a Trip On a Gemini Spaceship."

Television Alert:

The Tonight Show with Jay Leno slips into Abandoned Pools tonight, Avril Lavigne on Thursday, No Doubt on Friday, and Paul Westerberg on Tuesday; The Late Show with David Letterman hosts Jimmy Eat World on Thursday and David Bowie on Monday; Late Night with Conan O'Brien features New Found Glory on Tuesday overnight; and The Late Late Show With Craig Kilborn welcomes the Pet Shop Boys on Thursday overnight and Luna on Monday overnight. MTV's 2002 Movie Awards should be fun on Thursday night with co-host Jack Black of Tenacious D.
