Primavera Sound Festival has revealed its 2014 lineup, which boasts over 15 headliners including Arcade Fire, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Pixies, Queens of the Stone Age, and Kendrick Lamar. Taking place May 29th to 31st in Barcelona, the lineup will also include Chvrches, Haim, and Nine Inch Nails, in what is sure to be one of the city’s loudest nights. Check out the full lineup below.
In celebration of yesterday’s Beats Music launch, creative chief Trent Reznor has released a new remix EP, featuring cuts from Nine Inch Nails‘ Hesitation Marks. Remix appearances include Hot Chip, Cold Cave, Simian Mobile Disco, and Autolux. You can check out the track list below and catch Nine Inch Nails this weekend on TV as they perform at the Grammy Awards for the first time, alongside Dave Grohl, Queens of the Stone Age, and many more.

When the 2014 Grammys air this Sunday, we’ll be treated to yet another all-star jam, but this one holds promise. It’s an FOD (friends of Dave) free for all, featuring many of the players from Dave Grohl‘s Sound City film, including Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, Fleetwood Mac‘s Lindsey Buckingham, and longtime Grohl pals Queens of the Stone Age, all of them nominated in some way for awards this year (Buckingham’s collaboration with Delta Rae, “If I Loved You,” earned a nomination for producer Rob Cavallo).
Coupled with the not-earth-shattering-but-still-pretty-cool treat of seeing Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr play together again, this might just make an interesting telecast. The Grohl jam will close out the show. Maybe Macca and Ringo will jump up there, who knows? Follow us on Twitter to catch a live-tweeting of events as they unfold on Sunday night.

Internet love song: Scott Weiland wonders how he can be fired from Stone Temple Pilots, and says he first heard about it in the press this morning. Rolling Stone:
I learned of my supposed “termination” from Stone Temple Pilots this morning by reading about it in the press. Not sure how I can be “terminated” from a band that I founded, fronted and co-wrote many of its biggest hits, but that’s something for the lawyers to figure out. In the meantime, I’m looking forward to seeing all of my fans on my solo tour which starts this Friday.
Dylan and the Dawes: Dawes announced on Twitter today that they will be opening up for Bob Dylan on his next tour. We predict backstage mayhem. Hidden Track has the dates.
New Nine Inch Nails news: Lots happening with Trent Reznor‘s venerable band lately. In addition to adding guitarist Adrian Belew (wow, cool), the lineup now includes Eric Avery of Jane’s Addiction and Josh Eustis of Telefon Tel Aviv. Now comes news of some tour dates. Spin reports the band will hit a few international festivals before kicking off an arena tour this fall.
Return of The ‘Mats: After 23 years, beloved rockers The Replacements have released a new song. It’s a Gordon Lightfoot cover (obv.) called “I’m Not Sayin’,” and it’s streaming at Pitchfork. Chris Mars, Paul Westerberg, and Tommy Stinson reunited to record a 7-inch EP called Songs For Slim, to benefit their ailing former bandmate Slim Dunlap, who suffered a stroke last year. The band pressed just 250 copies of the EP and auctioned them off to raise over $100k. Nice.
It’s nice to see that Trent Reznor has found a soul mate who is just as weird as he is. His new project, How To Destroy Angels, is comprised of him, his wife Mariqueen Maandig, and Nine Inch Nails contributors Atticus Ross and Rob Sheridan. The result on their second EP, An Omen (styalized on their website as An omen_ EP by How to destroy angels_) sounds more or less like a collection of creepy, experimental, minimalist, girl-fronted versions of NIN album interludes. That being said, it’s a fairly interesting and enjoyable listen.
The first track, “Keep it together,” is the most NIN-esque song on the album, with sparse electronic robot percussion and a two-note reverbed guitar line that repeats while dissonant synths wash over the whole track. The only difference is where you would expect to hear Reznor’s voice, you hear Maandig singing in a quiet cryptic way. But of course, before long, Reznor comes in with backup vocals and the two of them create harmonizing polyrhythmic layers repeating “I can’t keep it together” in a way that is reminiscent of “All The Love In The World” or “Every Day Is Exactly The Same” from NIN’s With Teeth. The structure and mood of this song set the tone for the rest of the album. Each track is a slow burn with very subtle dynamic variation, if any. (more…)
