The Band in a Box
pitchfork reports: As both Bob Dylan's longtime backing group and their own critically acclaimed entity, The Band helped define the back-to-basics aesthetic of the late 1960s/early 70s musical landscape. Following (or in reaction to) the sonic experimentation of the psychedelic rock movement, the group helped popularize a raw folk-rock sound characterized by rich textures and Americana sensibilities. While the name The Band may have seemed pretentious in other hands, the individual artistry of members Robbie Robertson, Levon Helm, Rick Danko, Richard Manuel, and Garth Hudson came together to form a true musical brotherhood that depended on each individual to carry the musical weight. Now, nearly 40 years after the forming, The Band are set to release a five-disc box set commemorating their potent contributions to rock history. 

Slated for release in May 2005 through Capitol/EMI, the still untitled set will feature more than 100 songs [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story 

Luna Breakup
pitchfork reports: Breakups are a bitch, and no more so than to the music-obsessed. Jesus, my dad still gets misty when you mention The Beatles. Well, after 12 years and seven studio albums, Luna frontman Dean Wareham recently announced that the quartet will be severing musical ties in early 2005, and while the band's website offers a handy list of explanations for the breakup-- both factual and facetious-- Pitchfork recently spoke with Wareham to get a more personal account of the impending split. 

"It's an interesting question. People are always like 'why?,' Wareham laughed. "I'm still doing interviews with people who are asking me why did Galaxie 500 break up. You know, that's just what bands do, and I think that is sort of the basic reason. You start a band, it's not going to last forever, and at a certain point you've got to stop... unless you're Metallica, or R.E.M., or the Rolling Stones, where they're not just bands, they're like multi-million dollar corporations [see full story for more of the interview]- Click Here for the Full Story
