President’s Day Music News

  • It’s about time M. Ward released something without the help of Zooey. Check out the new single “Primitive Girl” below.

  • Justin Timberlake impersonated Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon on this week’s episode of SNL. It’s pretty funny – JT does a parody of “Holocene” for Jay-Z and Beyonce’s new baby.

  • Alison Krauss covered The Simpsons theme song in celebration of the show’s 500th Episode. Stream it below while you wonder why the creators can’t seem to make episodes as good as the older ones.

  • This weekend brought us the second semi-final of EMP’s Sound Off! competition. Four great bands played, but Nude came home with the victory while Honora earned wild card honors. Ulrich and Brothers from Another also played great sets but will not advance to the finals on March 3rd.
