  • Everyone’s favorite 21st century surf rockers, Surfer Blood, appeared on the Halfway House Music blog to debut a new song titled “I’m Not Ready.” I think we’re ready to here some more of this new material.

  • James Blake has released a video for his cover of Feist’s “Limit To Your Love.” The music is soulful and the video is psychedelic. There is no need to limit your love for this video. See and believe it.

  • The New York Times Art blog has announced that Al Pacino will be playing the legendary music producer/convicted murderer Phil Spector in a new HBO bio pic. Can Pacino’s trademark machismo take on this creepy role? I’d say so, but let us know what you think.
  • Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips has always been somewhat of a “mad scientist,” but his most recent experiment could make some fans queasy. In designed a new poster for the group, Coyne used several viles of his own blood. There is a video of the creation process, but I warn readers with fears of needles or weak stomachs… you might want to pass on this one.

  • Band of Horses have released their rendition of Cee-Lo Green’s (formerly of Gnarls Barkley) song “Georgia.” Cee-Lo recorded a cover of the bands song “No One’s Gonna Love You.” Stereogum quoted Ben Bridwell as saying it was obvious that they should return the favor.

  • The first track, “You Can Count On Me” from Panda Bear’s forthcoming 7” has leaked its way online. It’s streaming over at the Disco Naivete tumblr.
  • And in some disappointing news, it appears that Fleet Foxes second album won’t be coming out as soon as we previously thought. The Seattle Weekly’s Reverb blog reports that Robin Pecknold said in a Facebook post that he “spoke too soon.” The album is still in production, but we can only hope this means it will be even better.
