…as it says on the tin.

ANDREW BIRD and ST VINCENT collaborate for les soirees de poche (french innit – ‘evenings of the pocket’). Intimate setting, hand held HD camera – beautiful. Click here // DEVENDRA BANHART streaming his forthcoming single, ‘Baby’  and discusses his video past with the NME  // THE CRIBS take over the guardian comments section and release the very limited edition Roses Edition  // WHITE LIES make rare track, ‘taxidermy’, available to download here and perform ‘Death’ on Jimmy Kimmel // ST VINCENT discusses her ‘Vampirey Song’ duet with BON IVER (!!) for Twilight ‘New Moon’!! This is exciting. Officially. // And last but not least – we are very happy to see that LEONARD COHEN  has recovered quickly and is back on tour. Very good news indeed.
