Well, thanks to NPR, you can now stream the album in its entirety. (It comes out, appropriately, on February 14th.) Cibo Matto play Saturday, March 1st, at The Crocodile. [NPR Music]
  • Last night, after Seattle’s epic win in the Super Bowl, FOX aired the much-talked-about episode of The New Girl with special guest star, Prince.
