PJ Harvey's Next Album to Be Recorded at London Art Exhibition

Buzz 11:02AM EDT

Just as the Foo Fighters did with the HBO documentary series on the cross-country recording of their latest album "Sonic Highways," British singer-songwriter PJ Harvey plans on exposing the recording process of her next album to the public. But instead of filming her studio sessions like the Foos did, Harvey and her crew of musicians, engineers and producers will be recording the album in a custom-built studio inside London's Somerset House, which will be open to the public for viewing as part of an art exhibition titled "Recording in Progress," starting Jan. 16. According to the Somerset House website, the studio is designed "in the form of an enclosed box ... displaying PJ Harvey, her band, producers, and engineers as a mutating, multi-dimensional sound sculpture." Each studio session will take place 45 minutes at a time from behind one-way, sound-proofed glass — so Harvey will not be able to see you waving at her — and according to Harvey's Facebook page, the sessions could involve "anything from laying down a bass drum track, to discussions, to improvisations, through to full performances of new songs." The exhibition was conceived by Harvey and commissioned by Artangel. Tickets are on sale now for 15 pounds — about $23 — which you can purchase by clicking here.READ MORE

5 Bands John Peel Was into Way Before You Were: Roxy Music, The Smiths, The White Stripes and More

Exclusives 17:08PM EDT

Today marks the tenth anniversary of the death of John Peel, the most influential DJ in the history of British radio and possibly even the world (it's arguable). Most affiliate a good disc jockey with a listenable voice but the best are those who become tastemakers for their community/listening base. They didn't make the music but they make sure that you hear it. John Peel was influential in launching many a band to stardom, such as Pink Floyd, but the five listed below could not have gotten by without a push from Peel far before their names went up in lights.READ MORE

Exclusives 14:28PM EDT
