Yoko Ono will be releasing her new album Yes, I'm A Witch in February 2007 on Astralwerks; however, Yoko chose a bunch of different artists she wanted to work with (including Flaming Lips, Cat Power, Le Tigre and more), gave them access to her back catalog and asked them to rework one of her songs each. Essentially this has become a compilation of Yoko Ono remixes and covers. In March, Astralwerks will follow up with a compilation of dance remixes to Ono songs.
Tracklist1 Hank Shocklee: "Witch Shocktronica Intro"
2 Peaches: "Kiss Kiss Kiss"
3 Shitake Monkey: "O'Oh"
4 Blow Up: "Everyman...Everywoman"
5 Le Tigre: "Sisters O Sisters"
6 Porcupine Tree: "Death of Samantha"

Jon Pebs, frontman for the San Diego septet, Buck-O-Nine, has released a statement explaining the concept behind the band's forthcoming effort, Screaming From The Suburbs. You can find out what Jon had to say below.
Buck-O-Nine Album DetailsOur new album we are calling Screaming from the Suburbs! It's kind of a theme album about 7 dudes in their thirties that have lives, jobs, kids and responsibilities that go beyond the band but, they still wanna rock! As the music and lyrics have taken shape, it has started to feel very intense to me. With age and as you go through life you also acquire more life experience, loss of love, change of address, monetary adversity and alcohol/addiction...

Hot Rod Circuit has titled their new album The Underground Is a Dying Breed, and it is set to hit stores on March 20th, 2007 via Immortal. The band is currently recording the album at frontman Andy Jackson's home studio, and Tim O'Heir will be mixing the record. "The band is so excited about the record," says Jackson, "The Underground Is A Dying Breed has a very raw, live feel. It is a little more stripped down and more classic Hot Rod Circuit. We really took our time writing and kind of found ourselves on this record...we became Hot Rod Circuit."
