The Gene Clark No Other Band, a collaborative project involving members of Beach House, Grizzly Bear and Fleet Foxes, will headline this year’s End Of The Road festival.

Founded by both members of Beach House (Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally), The Gene Clark No Other band also features Fleet Foxes’ frontman Robin Pecknold (pictured right), Grizzly Bear’s Daniel Rossen, former Walkmen member Hamilton Leithauser, ex-Fairport Convention member Iain Matthews and members of Lower Dens, Wye Oak and Celebration.

The group exists to reconstruct the cult 1974 album ‘No Other’ by late Byrds singer Gene Clark.

They join fellow headliners The Flaming Lips and Wild Beasts at the event alongside fellow new additions St Vincent, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, Tune-Yards, Jenny Lewis, Black Lips, Wye Oak, Chad VanGaalen, Felice Brothers and Archie Bronson Outfit.

The event takes place in Larmer Tree Gardens, North Dorset from August 29-31. John Grant, Drenge, British Sea Power, Temples, White Denim, Eagulls, Johnny Flynn, Deer Tick and Yo La Tengo will also play the annual event. More acts will be added in the coming months.

Beach House’s “Saturn Song” – Made with actual recordings from space

Beach House

A space-themed compilation album might sound a little nerdy at first glance, but boy does it suit Beach House’s ethereal dream-pop to a T. The Baltimore duo have revealed “Saturn Song”, their contribution to Lefse Records’ The Space Project, a forthcoming LP which was partially recorded using sounds literally culled from outer space.

The collection, which also features The Antlers and Spiritualized, makes use of “electromagnetic radiation fluctuations in the magnetosphere of the planets, moons, and large asteroids the Voyager probes traveled near,” according to a press release. All scientific jargon aside, “Saturn Song” marks Beach House’s first new track since 2012′s lovely Bloom and is as deliciously woozy as Beach House numbers come. Tune in via NPR.

The Space Project officially arrives on Record Store Day 2014 (April 19th) via Lefse Records. For more, check out Youth Lagoon’s “Worms” and Spiritualized’s “Always Forgetting With You (The Bridge Song)”.

The Space Project Tracklist:

A. Porcelain Raft – “Giove”
B. The Antlers – “Jupiter”

A. Mutual Benefit – “Terraform”
B. Anna Meredith – “Miranda”

A. The Spiritualized Mississippi Space Program – “Always Forgetting With You (The Bridge Song)”
B. The Holydrug Couple – “Amphitrites Lost”

A. Youth Lagoon – “Worms”
B. Blues Control – “Blues Danube”

A. Beach House – “Saturn Song”
B. Zomes: ”Moonlet”

A. Absolutely Free – “EARTH I”
B. Jesu – “Song of Earth”

A. Benoit & Sergio – “Long Neglected Words”
B. Larry Gus – “Sphere of Io (For Georg Cantor)”

Before releasing Bloom, we decided that we would only participate in “promotional” activities that we could control artistically and give substantial energy. We had previously been involved in too many live sessions, radio tapings, photo shoots, etc., where the outcome was far below our personal artistic standards. We also felt a need to distance ourselves from the “content” culture of the internet that rewards quantity over quality and shock over nuance.

The concept for Forever Still was about a year old when Pitchfork came to us about supporting and collaborating with us on a project that we really cared about

Forever Still is directly inspired by Pink Floyd’s Live at Pompeii. We wanted to perform in a non-typical setting without losing the spirit of our music. We felt the songs would resonate in a more majestic and spiritual landscape. The experience was an intense three nights of filming. Everyone involved in production and crew was benevolent in their time and talented in their efforts. We were very lucky to have the help and hard work of many people who aided and lent their abilities to our vision.

The basic concept is four songs performed from sunset to sunrise.
We tried to keep the edits minimal with long takes in order to focus on the energy of the songs, the landscape, and the physicality of live performance. The entire film was shot in or around Tornillo, Texas, where we recorded Bloom. Like Bloom, we hope that Forever Still is experienced as a whole, long form.
