Melissa Auf Der Maur Sets Sail

Now that Guitar Hero III is out (not that we’ve had a chance to play it yet, hint), we can revisit one of the suggestions that I had for the game way back in March: Melissa Auf Der Maur’s amped-up sea chanty “Followed The Waves,” the video of which has only the most tangential relation to the watery themes of the song. (Nice boat!) But that’s fine, really, because “Waves” doesn’t really need much else to frame it; it’s just a potent rock track that unfairly bombed in the Not Many Gurlz Allowed club of modern-rock radio. A post on Auf Der Maur’s personal site hints that new music is forthcoming from the Billy Corgan/Courtney Love collaborator, which is 100% fine by me. (Bet it comes out before the next Courtney record does…)
