My favourite tune from last year’s slightly patchy Animal Collective album gets the video treatment:
Gun-Shy is taken from Grizzly Bear‘s Shields album which was released last September. You can buy it here.
Ex-Beta Band frontman, Steve Mason releases his second album (well, under his own name anyway), Monkey Minds In The Devil’s Time (see album cover art above) this March.
Today, Steve posted a link to a short LP taster video with an accompanying mini-interview – check it out below:
He also posted a link to new song, Oh My Lord, which you can listen to below (it’s released on 18th March):
The tracklist for, Monkey Minds In The Devil’s Time is as follows:
01 THE OLD PROBLEM
02 LIE AWAKE
03 FLYOVER ‘98
04 A LOT OF LOVE

I spotted this tonight on Facebook and thought I’d share it (as it’s quite odd and gently perturbing).
Someone has gone to the trouble of processing REM‘s 1991 hit, ‘Losing My Religion‘ so that all the minor notes are turned into major ones.
I’m not sure if this is going to become some kind of bizarre new internet craze (like literal music videos or horse-manning) but it’s an interesting slice of oddness nonetheless. Check it out below:
Australian radio station Triple J recently welcomed Dirty Projectors to their studio for an interview and the chance to cover a song of their choice as part of the station’s Like A Version series. The group chose to perform a pared down and beautifully harmonic cover of R&B ‘superstar’, Usher‘s 2012 hit, Climax.

Proof you a polish a turd?
The band also performed a stripped back version of Gun Has No Trigger from last year’s Swing Lo Magellan album. Check it out below:
