Cracker, Midnight Oil and more hit Rock Band next week photo



Next week's downloadable content releases for Rock Band 3 have been revealed, bringing three never-before-playable bands into the mix. Tracks from Cracker, Florence + The Machine, and Midnight Oil will release on the 5th of June (June 6 in Europe). Here's the list:

  • Cracker – “Teen Angst (What the World Needs Now)” 
  • Florence + the Machine – “Dog Days Are Over” 
  • Midnight Oil – “Power and the Passion”
  • As ever, tracks are $1.99 (160 MSP or 200 Wii Points) with a Pro version upgrade available on Teen Angst for just $0.99 (80 MSP/100 Wii) more.

    I'm shamed to say that I don't really know any of these tracks and barely know Cracker apart from their 1993 single, "Low," which I remember as much for having Sandra Bernhardt in the music video as the expression, "junkie cosmonaut," which will probably never leave me. Harmonix should get that one in there.

    Making multiplayer music in Fantasia: Music Evolved

    Harmonix revealed a multiplayer mode for Fantasia: Music Evolved at GDC last week alongside some new songs and levels. I jumped in front of a Kinect sensor to try out the new mode, and it wasn't long before I was flapping my arms to the beat.  Can't you hear that boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass?    more
