iTunes bonus track

The iTunes version of the 180 Degrees South soundtrack (out today!) contains a bonus track, Now You're Sleeping, that seems to be a brief keyboard instrumental. We're trying to confirm if the vinyl version will also contain this track.

UPDATE: Brushfire have confirmed that it's an iTunes only track.

Pitchfork interview Isaac Brock

In a new interview with Pitchfork, Isaac discusses a range of topics, including his work on the 180 Degrees South soundtrack, new Modest Mouse songs, the upcoming tour and the band's current relationship with Johnny Marr.

On the topic of a new Modest Mouse album:
Pitchfork: What are you working on with Modest Mouse?

IB: Songs. That's that.

Pitchfork: Are they going in any particular direction?

IB: I can't say that yet. I can't say that they are. It's pretty early in the game for me to have a clear picture of what we're doing, if it's good or anything. They're going to show up again today, and we'll keep banging our heads on it. It's way too early for me to know what direction this thing is really headed. It's just a bunch of random shit at the moment.

Pitchfork: How long have you been working on the random shit?

IB: About six months. We're not killing ourselves doing it, by any means. We just had the "Hey, we should probably buckle down" conversation last week. We just putz around and smoke a bunch of weed. It's more time spent hanging out than playing music.
And as far as hearing any of these new songs on the upcoming tour, well don't hold your breath:
Pitchfork: Will you try out new music on tour?

IB: We're going to try to. But I actually think we won't. I don't think any of it is close enough to be ready in what's essentially two-and-a-half weeks. I'd like to say we're going to, but I don't really see it happening.

So who is in Ugly Casanova this time?

A profile page for 180 Degrees South on Magnolia Pictures' website has revealed the members of Ugly Casanova this time round to be: Isaac Brock, Tom Peloso, Joe Plummer, Eric Judy and Clay Jones (We're presuming Clay Jones is the same Clay Jones that worked as an engineer on We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank). Watch this promo that Brushfire records put out last night showing them recording/performing together.

180 Degrees South is also now apparently streaming from Netflix.

Thanks to Buzman429 and Joel for this info.
