FN News Roundup: March 29, 2012

Sebadoh @ Bowery Ballroom, 4/10/11

Hey! Felt like a pretty slow news day today, but the stuff that DID happen is great. I ate a couple of Jolly Ranchers today, but that's not really music news - the following is though:

  • Jason Loewenstein and Bob D'Amico flew out to LA today to join Lou Barlow in the studio to record THE FIRST NEW SEBADOH ALBUM IN 13 YEARS!! Yes to THAT (The Backstage Rider)

  • Can is releasing The Lost Tapes on June 19 via Mute, a three-disc box set made from 30+ hours of unreleased songs recorded between 1968 and 1977 recently discovered as the legendary krautrockers' old studio was being disassembled. Keyboardist Irmin Schmidt and collaborator Jono Podmore will discuss and perform tracks from The Lost Tapes at a celebratory event at Le Poisson Rouge on April 17, so be sure to get tickets to that for the ridiculously low price of $10 (Pitchfork)

  • Future Nostalgia heroes The Big Sleep have announced a late Spring / early Summer US tour with Maps and Atlases and Fang Island, bringing them back to The Studio At Webster Hall on May 21. Damn right you should get a ticket (The Big Sleep)

  • Check out another new track from De La Soul side project First Serve, "We Made It," after the jump! The self-titled debut LP is out on April 3 (Consequence of Sound)

  • Know what else is after the jump? The trailer for The Walkmen's new album, Heaven, coming out on June 5 via Fat Possum (Beats Per Minute)
