  • From late night TV to KEXP: Swedish songstress Lykke Li took to Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night to perform a track from her latest album, I Never Learn, as well as her contribution to the soundtrack for the film The Fault in Our Stars. Watch her perform the single “No Rest For The Wicked” below, and watch live streaming video of her in-studio session on KEXP today at 3:00 PM PT! [Pitchfork]

  • And then on a different channel last night, Veruca Salt reunited on Conan for their first live performance together in 18 years. Watch them take out their ’94 single “Seether” below. The reconvened original lineup perform June 23rd at the Tractor Tavern in Seattle. [Spin]

  • Legendary 4AD trio Cocteau Twins announced they will be reissuing their 1988 album Blue Bell Knoll and their 1990 album Heaven or Las Vegas on vinyl on July 15th. It’ll be the first time these releases have been re-pressed on vinyl since their initial run. [Under the Radar]
  • Norwegian crooner Sondre Lerche is back this fall with a new album titled Please, and he politely shares the first single “Bad Law”. Check out the surprisingly funky track below: [Stereogum]

  • And, finally, Paul McCartney has been hospitalized in Tokyo. The 72-year-old artist recently canceled the Asian leg of his tour due to a viral infection, that has unfortunately gotten worse. KEXP sends our best to Macca for a speedy recovery. [Consequence of Sound]
