Watch: Big Deal’s New Video, “Chair”


Big Deal have just announced plans for their live debut in the US in March, performing at SXSW, with two other scheduled live shows in New York and one in Los Angeles.

The band will be performing songs from their debut album Lights Out (out January 24th) on Mute.

For those looking for an edgy, at times hypnotic, yet refreshing sound to add to their  playlist, this lo-fi pop duo, made up of American Kacey Underwood and Brit Alice Costelloe, might just fit the bill.

Their album Lights Out, co-produced by Underwood and Dean Reid, is filled with the sweet, gentle and sparse sounds of lo-fi guitars and emotive lyrics.

3/11–The Glasslands with 2:54–Brooklyn, NY

3/12–The Mercury Lounge with 2:54–New York, NY

Trent Reznor’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Score to Be Released by Mute

Earlier this year, we learned that composer and former Nine Inch Nails man, Trent Reznor, was set to collaborate once again with his longtime musical partner Atticus Ross on the US film adaptation of the novel The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

This latest effort follows the pair’s enormously successful debut composing the soundtrack for the movie The Social Network, which earned them a 2010 Golden Globe for Best Original Score and the Academy Award for Best Original Score.

Now we are learning via Pitchfork that Reznor’s and Ross’ score for David Fincher’s forthcoming film will be released on the label Mute outside of North America, and a US label will be announced on Dec. 2, according to Reznor’s recent post on Twitter.
Stay tuned!
