  • We have a new track by The Shins for all of you. It’s called “September” and it’s the b-side to their recent single, “Simple Song.” Be sure to tune in to our live in-studio from The Shins this Friday, February 10.

  • M.I.A. will likely pay a fine for her Superbowl bird-flipping fiasco. The singer is contractually obligated to cover any FCC fines that might occur during her halftime performance, fines which might reach to Janet Jackson-like, half-million dollar proportions. (Note: an FCC violation on the radio could earn up to $250,000 in fines!) Read more about it here.

  • In honor of her appearance on Gossip Girl, I recently posted a video of Annie Clark saying “I love you.” While this video will never top that, here is a clip of her on Portlandia

  • Appearing for the fourth time on Austin City Limits, Wilco delivered a pretty awesome set that included a guest appearance from Nick Lowe. Wilco recorded a version of Lowe’s “I Love My Label” which appeared on the bonus edition of The Whole Love.
