Morning Shorts

We've decided to extend the Corrina Repp contest til Friday at high noon. So if you haven't already entered...

Ridiculous internet gossip abounds about Pink Floyd: The Movie, supposedy directed by Cameron Crowe and starring Ashton Kutcher as Roger Waters and Mark Kozelek as David Gilmour! With Sir Ben Kingsley as the ballsy Judge at the Wall.

Meanwhile, Caldo Verde's third release will be a live Koz album, Little Drummer Boy, due out in November with an as-yet-unknown tracklist. And a nice interview in the Lansing State Journal reveals that he's got ... no plans at all. "'I'm approaching 40,' Kozelek said by phone from his home in San Francisco. 'After this tour, I really have no plans at all to do any recording. I have no plans for a new album. No acting plans. What I'm doing right now is where it's at for me. I feel pretty good right now, and I've always done things in an unorthodox fashion.'"

Pitchfork reports on a group of French schoolchildren known as the Young Rapture Choir, who so far perform Laura Veirs tunes exclusively. Their first record is available from Raven Marching Band records, and you can stream one of their performances on their MySpace page.

Time Out London covers antifolk under a recurring "Secret Scenes" feature: "There are countless similarities between our city and its transatlantic cousin, but the best thing London and New York have in common is that they are home to a legion of misfits and outsiders who manage to find each other in their city’s myriad music scenes. Antifolk is just one of these, and it’s been bubbling away across the pond and in our own backyard for the last few years."

The first post-Luna release from Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips, Words You Used to Say, features the title track original and four covers, including tunes by ex-Moldy Peach Adam Green and Donovan. It's due out October 17th.

Here's Luna doing a live cover of Donovan's "Season of the Witch" in Chicago, 2004, courtesy of Luna supersite Head Full of Wishes's a/v trove.
