  • Brooklyn rockers, Grizzly Bear, stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show back in April to promote their album, Shields, and the performance finally aired yesterday. The track “Yet Again” is a definite highlight of the album and apparently they are one of Ellen’s favorite bands. Watch the performance below. [Pitchfork]

  • Prince‘s new video for his single “FIXURLIFEUP” features a pulsating mash-up of performance footage and lyrics. Prince also breaks the fourth wall quite a few times, so it feels like he’s telling you directly how to “fix your life up.” If for no other reason, check out the video to see his killer, sparkly vest.

  • Urban Outfitters has partnered with Charli XCX for her video for “Take My Hand.” It takes place at a raging party (complete with fog machines) with crowds fist pumping along to the thumping bass. Everyone seems to be having a great time and don’t seem to be bothered by the fact that some people are randomly smashing things. [Pitchfork]

  • Shout Out Louds played their song “Walking In Your Footsteps” on Leno last night. Their performance starts around the 38:00 mark – after interviews with Tyler Perry and Isla Fisher. Check out the Swedish rockers’ new album, Optica, which is available now via Merge Records. [Stereogum]
