We know, we know: Another day, another hype-inflating crumb of information about Lulu, the forthcoming collaboration album between Lou Reed and Metallica. Well, today, we get two new tidbits, both in the form of videos. One is a trailer that feels more like a film preview than an album teaser. (Just wait'll you see "Death"! "Suicide"! "Lust"! flash across your screen.) The other, 60-second clip has Lou Reed and Metallica's James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich talking a bit about Lulu and the hows and whys of its making and alleged awesomeness.

The soundtrack to both vids is the same section of "The View" that leaked earlier in the fall. (Is it just us, or does it get better the more ones listens to it?) So yeah, only slivers of newness here, but for those of us who're waiting maybe a bit too eagerly to hear this San Rafael-recorded collaboration, well, it's something. Check out the new teasers after the jump.

The trailer:

The talking:

Oh, and in case you've forgotten, Lulu is out on, of course, Halloween.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
