  • The legacy of Kurt Cobain was clearly on a lot of people’s minds this weekend on the 20th anniversary of his death. At Saturday night’s show at The Riviera in Chicago, St. Vincent paid her own tribute with a cover of Nirvana‘s “Lithium” — watch below. [Stereogum]

  • Los Angeles group Warpaint have rolled out a new video for the tracks “Disco/Very” and “Keep It Healthy,” from their self-titled sophomore release. Watch the girls skateboard and goof around in this eight-minute clip, directed by Laban Pheidas, and tune in on Friday, May 2nd at 11:00 AM PT to hear them LIVE on KEXP. [Consequence of Sound]

  • With the demise of the second Sasquatch! Music Festival weekend, artists are being rebooked all across the city, including Scandinavian dance-pop collaborators Robyn and Röyksopp. Dubbed the “Röyksopp and Robyn Do It Again Tour 2014,” they’ll be stopping at Marymoor Park on June 26th. A press release states: “Each of these events will consist of a Robyn-part, a Röyksopp-part and of course a joined Robyn+Röyksopp-part — all wrapped up in lights ‘n’ smoke and tons of joy.” [Pitchfork]
  • As we mentioned in last week’s edition of “TV Eye,” Nine Inch Nails were the scheduled guest on the PBS show Austin City Limits. Watch this rare 53-minute television appearance below: [Pitchfork]

  • More than just a tasty snack, Sweet Apple is the latest supergroup led by J Mascis, two members of Cobra Verde, one member from Witch, and, on this track, Mark Lanegan. Check out the single “Wish You Could Stay” below, featuring another stellar acting job from Mascis. The full length, The Golden Age of Glitter, is out 4/8 on Tee Pee Records. [Stereogum]
