  • Robyn has dropped the video for her new collaboration with Snoop Dogg (Lion?), “U Should Know Better.” It features the duo’s doppelgangers having a wide range of fun, from playing will dolls to tending to plants in a random greenhouse. On her twitter, Robyn described the video as, “In a parallel universe Snoop and Robyn ride or die in a Volvo.” I couldn’t have described it better myself. [Pitchfork]

  • Local band The Torn ACLs have a funny new video for their new single, “Feeling With Feeling”. Check it out below and catch them at the Columbia City Theater on Saturday:

  • Vancouver rock duo, Japandriods, stopped by Late Show with David Letterman last night and performed their song “Adrenaline Nightshift.” The track is off their new album Celebration Rock, which is available now from Polyvinyl. [Stereogum]

  • Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington, aka Darkside, have remixed Daft Punk‘s Random Access Memories in its entirety. Below we have their version of Daft Punk’s hit “Get Lucky.” A majority of the vocals have been removed to make room for sleek, rhythmic beats. See if you think it stacks up to the original. [CoS]

  • Swedish pop duo jj are back with a brand new track entitled “Fagelsangen.” It’s a beautiful and lively new song that has me excited for whats to come. They also launched a website so fans can keep up with tour dates and new music. Click on the link below to hear (or download) “Fagelsangen.” [Stereogum]

  • Lately, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon has had some pretty amazing talent grace the show’s stage. Last night was no exception when the Yeah Yeah Yeahs showed up to promote “Despair,” a new track off their Mosquito album. Not only did they sound amazing, but they looked killer too. In my opinion, you can never go wrong with gold lamé. [CoS]
