HBO’s Silicon Valley is awesome, and Erlich Bachman in an episode says: “Everybody involved in the music industry is either stealing it or sharing it.

And now, the aforementioned Silicon Valley clip:

Some exciting pre-orders happening right now at Turntable Lab!
The internets went bonkers speculating on when the new Radiohead album was dropping (after mysterious leaflets sent to fans, a few deleted Tweets, “erased” internet presence), then came “Burn the Witch” (clay animation!!!) on May 1st, followed by “Daydreaming” five days later. The official announcement was made on the same day, then Thom Yorke and gang released their 9th studio album, in all its alphabetized-song-titles glory, on May 8th.
And now the important question… When will the vinyl version come out? A Moon Shaped Pool will be available on colored vinyl 2LP sometime in mid-June, and you can now pre-order the record at Turntable Lab. Check here for more information, and here are videos that together have already amassed 15 million-plus views:
And yes, “True Love Awaits,” the song that the band has been popping up in Radiohead’s live shows for more than 20 years, is on the album. Here’s a clip of Thom Yorke playing it on his acoustic guitar in 1995:
Another anticipated album available for pre-order now at Turntable Lab is Australian producer Flume’s sophomore LP, Skin. Flume’s prolific catalog of beats and remixes that marry dreamy, futuristic pop with “clickity-clack” beats have won over many (just peep his tour schedule), and his second full-length, which will feature Beck, Raekwon, Little Dragon, and other guests, will be available on purple & white swirl colored vinyl (180g pressing) with full-color printed inserts. More information available here.
And lastly, you can now pre-order the comprehensive Fan-Tas-Tic 4CD / 5×7″ Boxset from Slum Village! The collection contains J Dilla-produced classics, rarities, and instrumentals spread over 4 CDs AND 5 colored, premium 7″ vinyl, and for fans of or newcomers to the legendary underground producer and group, there is no better way to show love.
