    It’s wild to think that Alison Goldfrapp — who has been playing in the long-running synthpop duo Goldfrapp since 1999 — has never released a solo album before. Goldfrapp’s last album was 2017’s Silver Eye. More recently, Alison teamed up on singles with Claptone (“Digging Deeper”) and Paul Woolford (“Fever”). Now, Alison is announcing her debut solo album called The Love Invasion, out May 12. Accompanying the news is a lead single, “So Hard So Hot,” which also has a video directed in collaboration with Mat Maitland.

    Last night, a whole mob of luminaries gathered at New York’s Carnegie Hall for an all-star tribute to Paul McCartney. McCartney himself was not in attendance, but plenty of his peers and admirers were. The show was part of promoter Michael Dorf’s fundraising “Music Of” series, which has previously saluted the likes of Bob Dylan and Prince.

    Over the weekend, David Byrne returned to the Oscars stage for the first time in over three decades to perform the Best Original Song-nominated track “This Is A Life,” from the Best Picture-winning film Everything Everywhere All At Once. In the lead-up to that performance, he gave an interview to Entertainment Weekly where he let slip that EEAAO‘s distributor A24 would be rereleasing Talking Heads’ 1984 Jonathan Demme-directed concert film Stop Making Sense later this year. Today, a teaser for that rerelease is out, which shows Byrne picking up his iconic giant suit from the dry cleaners and testing out some of his dance moves in a mirror.

    After the requisite social media teasing, Phoenix are back today with a new version of “After Midnight,” the best song on their 2022 return-to-form Alpha Zulu. Clairo has hopped on a remix of the driving, percolating, brightly shining synth-pop stunner, trading lines and harmonizing with Thomas Mars. She sounds fantastic amidst all the icy chords and propulsive burbles, tangled up with Mars’ light-beam of a voice. For me this easily surpasses Ezra Koenig’s turn on “Tonight” as the best duet to emerge from the Alpha Zulu cycle.

    Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen was recently assaulted outside a Fort Lauderdale hotel, as News 7 Miami reports. Allen was smoking in the valet section at the Four Seasons Fort Lauderdale when, according to police reports, 19-year-old Max Hartley ran at him at full-speed and tackled him, causing Hartley to hit his head on the ground. When a woman from the hotel came to help, the suspect attacked both of them before fleeing the area. He was arrested shortly after at a different hotel, where he was breaking car windows.

    Earlier this week, tickets for the Cure’s North American tour went on sale, and Robert Smith is not happy. First he attempted to explain the ticket pricing strategy for the shows, which is based around Ticketmaster’s “Verified Fan” program (the same one Taylor Swift utilized) and a flat-fee for tickets. Then, in a series of tweets, he acknowledged some problems with that strategy, mainly that it’s extremely difficult for many fans to actually acquire access to the ticket sale.

    Jack White has responded to journalist Lachlan Markay calling White Stripes drummer Meg White “terrible” in a now-deleted tweet that sparked a major backlash and discourse this week. Posting to Instagram, Jack White shared a picture of Meg mid-performance and a poem appearing to liken Markay (and any other Meg White naysayer) to “demons, cowards and vampires out for blood.”

  8. Apex Storage X21 add-in-card

    For high-capacity storage needs, the average consumer turns to hard disk drives (HDDs). They're generally not as speedy or reliable as SSDs, but they're a heck of a lot cheaper. The Apex Storage X21 add-in card (AIC) currently making its rounds on the Internet isn't about using the most cost-effective storage, though. Instead, the expansion card, which looks to be a debut product from a not-yet-known storage company, is for people or businesses willing to spend what it takes to stock the card with up to 21 8TB NVMe PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSDs.

    Tom's Hardware first spotted the website for the X21 on Sunday, and Henry Hill, in engineering and sales at the company, confirmed the product to Ars Technica via email. He said the product will cost $2,800, with discounts available for volume purchases, which will ship by Q2. Samples are already available to volume customers, he said, and consumer shipments will start "before the end of 2023."

    MIke Spicer, listed as Apex Storage's founder and CEO, launched a Kickstarter in 2021 with a concept that's similar to the X21. Instead of 21 M.2 SSDs, the Apex Storage Scaler claimed to support a modest 16 SSDs. It's unclear how many, if any, of these cards reached backers. However, in July, Spicer hinted at a "V2" of the product on Twitter.
