Foo Fighters’ American music history lesson ‘Sonic Highways’ premieres tonight

The new HBO documentary series Sonic Highways — directed by the Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl — debuts tonight, and if it’s anything like the extremely well-received documentary Sound City he directed in 2013, it might just be worth canceling your Friday night plans for.

The eight-part series is going to follow Grohl as he visits touchstone American recording studios in different cities that are steeped in musical lore, and will feature conversations with the important musicians who have called these places home. The power combination of (soon-to-be-unbundled) HBO and Grohl meant that the series was able to compile an impressive list of interviewees, as the trailer alone teases talks with everyone from 20th-century icons like Dolly Parton…

Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós has released a haunting version of Game of Thrones‘ “The Rains of Castamere.” The band isn’t the first guitar group to cover songs from George R. R. Martin’s fantasy lands of Westeros and Essos, but where indie rock outfit The Hold Steady was chosen to produce a deliberately jarring aural effect, Sigur Rós’ plaintive and ethereal take on “The Rains of Castamere” slots easily into Martin’s medieval-esque world. The song, about the destruction of a smaller house that dared to test the might of the Lannisters, was featured in the powerful new episode of the HBO show, which aired last night in the US.
