Holy Ghost! put up this fun cover of Ministry’s “I Wanted to Tell Her” on Green Label Sound for free download. It features their DFA buddies Nancy Whang and Juan Maclean and lots of jittery grooves. Great bassline too. Maybe you can hear it on their current tour?

Parenthetical Girls have been releasing their new album as limited edition 12″s, and the latest edition, Privilege pt IV – Sympathy for Spastics will be out November 1st. As with all past 12″s, the artwork features the face of a Parenthetical Girls member (this edition’s cover girl is Amber Smith) and signed in her own blood. Only 500 copies will be made, so get on it now.

To sweeten the deal, when you preorder the 12″ you’ll get an instant digital download called Demos for the Dreaming which sees the band covering three Kate Bush tracks. Get a taste below and get to ordering.

Xiu Xiu recently gained two new members and have been working on their follow-up album to last year’s Dear God I Hate Myself but now they’re releasing a single called “Daphny” dedicated to a close friend of theirs “who—following an arrest for shoplifting—was raped by an officer while in police custody.” Yikes. The B-side is a cover of Rihanna’s “Only Girl in the World.” The 7″ is up for preorder now at Polyvinyl.

The group also remixed a track by Parenthetical Girls, as part of a free remix EP (Parenthetical Girls singer Zac Pennington is part of Xiu Xiu’s new line-up). Grab that for the price of an e-mail here.

Really glad Justin Vernon took a stab at the saddest song in the world. His version isn’t as sad as the original but still a great song too. His new album is out tomorrow and you’d be a fool not to get it. It’s incredible!
