The Beatles

NPR

Award-winning Manchester, UK cinematic alt/prog-rockers Elbow just released new album Giants of All Sizes and a video for lead single, "Empires," which depicts a dystopian, post BREXIT world that pretty much crumbles to the ground. Frontman Guy Garvey credits the dark subject matter to personal and political mourning- his beloved father died last year and he’s despondent at what he calls his county’s “cultural disaster,” leaving the European Union. Oysterhead, the "supergroup" featuring Trey Anastasio of Phish, Primus' Les Claypool and ex-Police drummer Stuart Copeleand are getting together for the first time since 2006, performing two shows in Colorado in February. And, just in time for the holidays, a massive new Beatles box  set, featuring singles in original sleeve artwork from all over the world, comes out November 22nd.

Fashion mogul Stella McCartney took in a 50th anniversary screening of Yellow Submarine last year, and was so deeply moved and inspired, she created a men and women's fashion line based on lyrics from the animated film and song lyrics from her dad Paul and his Beatles bandmates. The first line "All Together Now" came out yesterday and a bigger psychedelic collection will be out in the fall. Celebs and musicians sported a preview at Glastonbury last week. Farm Aid will take place in East Troy, Wisconsin this year. The September 21st festival features usual headliners Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Dave Matthews and John Mellencamp as well as Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, Yola, Lukas Nelson & the Promise of the Real and Tanya Tucker. The first Farm Aid took place in 1985! And Car Seat Headrest released the final installment of their behind-the-scenes online documentary I Haven't Done (BLEEP) This Year, which shows the genesis of a new song.
