“Here comes the 21st Century,” Debbie Harry assuredly sang nearly three decades ago on her solo disc Def Dumb And Blonde, “it’s gonna be so much better for a girl like me.”With the turn of the century well behind us now, that gleeful prediction has certainly come true:Singer-songwriter Harry, guitarist and co-writer Chris Stein, powerhouse drummer Clem Burke and their band-mates in Blondie are undeniable pop icons, their sound and sensibility as fresh as when they first topped the charts in the late 1970s. In their newest project, Po11inator, Blondie enlisted a group of cool songwriters to contribute to the record weaving their own way into the living, breathing story of Blondie, a group that directly affected their own genetic makeup as artists. The list is enviable and reflects the dynamism of Blondie's very own cross-pollinating past – the fans and friends contributing material are blonde-bewigged superstar Sia, Blood Orange frontman Dev Hynes, British singer Charli XCX, Dave Sitek (TV On The Radio), Nick Valensi (The Strokes), Johnny Marr (The Smiths), and Canadian movie blogger and indie rocker (under the name An Unkindness) Adam Johnston. The invincible Joan Jett and cross-dressing comedian and singer John Roberts, who rose from DIY YouTube sensation to Bob’s Burgerregular, both contribute

In the spring of 2013, the members of Garbage — Shirley Manson, Steve Marker, Duke Erikson and Butch Vig — gathered in Los Angeles to start work on their sixth studio album. Except the recording didn’   t begin in a studio, per se.  It began where so many bands first do: in a basement. The basement was Vig’   s, perhaps one of the least elaborate home studios a multi-platinum producer has ever had. “My home studio is just a room where I watch Packers games,” says Vig. “There’   s no sound proofing. It’   s just four walls of drywall. So it’   s got a bit of a trashy vibe to it.”It was a fitting launching pad for an album that, over the course of the next two and a half years, would see the band finding a way forward by looking backward, tapping into the spark of their youths to try an uninhibited back-to-basics approach. But Garbage — long known for their meticulously crafted blend of dark, industrial noise, sci-fi pop melodies, whirlwind guitar, and tricked-out rhythms — was going back-to-basics for the first time. “When you’   re a teenager, you’   re in a basement somewhere with your band, and you don’   t know what you’   re doing,” says Marker. “There’   s a lot of the teenagers that we were in this record.”Some will hear echoes of Garbage’   s 1995 debut album in Strange Little Birds— including Manson herself. “To me, this record, funnily enough, has the most to do with the first record than any of the previous records,” she says. “It’   s getting back to that beginner’   s headspace.” In part, she says, that’   s a result of not having anyone to answer to. Strange Little Birds is Garbage’   s second album off their own label, STUNVOLUME.  It’   s a return to the freedom they had when working on their very first songs at Smart Studios in Madison, Wisconsin, more than twenty years ago, before they’   d ever signed a label deal. “It’   s so liberating,” says Manson.
