My Bloody Valentine Digitally Release Two Albums, EP

August 26, 2008 4:16 PM ET

Still waiting for those My Bloody Valentine remasters? There's some good news today, as the recently reunited shoegazers have finally digitally released their Isn't Anything and Loveless albums. Until today, both records had only been available in partial form. MBV also dusted off their Tremolo EP, giving that four song set its digital debut. Remastered physical versions of the albums were supposed to be released stateside back in June, but while they've since been released in the U.K., the U.S. reissues have been delayed. Likewise, a Japan-only MBV box set harboring unreleased tracks was also put on hold. Following a summer that featured their first concerts in 16 years, My Bloody Valentine will return to America with a September 19th performance at the All Tomorrow's Party festival in Monticello, New York.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
