David Grohl "Sound City" Soundtrack Now Free To Stream

Dave Grohl’s all-original soundtrack to his documentary “Sound City” is now free to stream at the NME website. ‘The Sound City Players’ – essentially David Grohl teaming with an all-star team of guests, matches Grohl with Stevie Nicks, Josh Homme, John Fogarty, Trent Reznor and Paul McCartney.

The Paul McCartney song, which the Beatle billed as a Nirvana reunion, features all surviving members of Nirvana; Grohl, Krist Novoselic and late-era guitarist and ex-Germ Pat Smear. Other songs include artists ranging from Rick Springfield to Lee Ving of Fear to a pair of Rage Against the Machine members.

Grohl’s documentary honours the recently-closed Sound City Studios in Los Angeles, where Nirvana and a bevy of other rock legends recorded.

The Sound City Players will play this year’s SXSW, where Grohl will serve as a keynote speaker.

The 43rd Uncut Playlist Of 2014


Very taken with Africa Express' version of "In C", by Terry Riley, this week. I have a few takes on the piece (50 years old this month, incidentally), the latest being one by Portishead's Adrian Utley from a couple of years back, though I still probably default to what I think is the original...
