  • If you haven’t seen this yet, allow me to do the honors. Seth Rogen and James Franco have pulled off the most wonderful spoof of Kanye West‘s “Bound 2″ music video. The way these two gaze into one another’s eyes is nothing short of magical. If only Kim Kardashian and Kanye had this much genuine chemistry. It’s saying a lot when this hilarious satire is less ridiculous than the original. [CoS]

  • Coming off the release of their new album, Seasons of Your Day (their first in 17 years) Mazzy Star decided grace late night TV for the first time since 1994. They may have aged a tiny bit, but they sound as amazing as ever. Watch them perform their song “California” below. [CoS]

  • bEEdEEgEE, a.k.a. Brian DeGraw, will release his debut album, SUM/ONE, on December 3 via 4AD. Now you can hear his remix of Syrian musician Omar Souleyman’s “Warni Warni.” DeGraw’s verison is a bit more laid back and whimsical, while still preserving Souleyman’s killer vision. [Stereogum]

  • Last night, Sky Ferreira stopped by the Late Show with David Letterman to belt her track “You’re Not the One.” She also debuted her new video for the standout “My Night, My Time,” which you can watch here. Next year, Ferreira will embark on a sprawling US tour and on February 16 she will perform at the Tacoma Dome. [Pitchfork]
