  • New Jersey indie rockers Real Estate participated in the A.V. Club’s “Undercover” Series where they took on the Cranberries 1993 song “Linger.” It’s a smooth rendition that doesn’t stay too far from the original. [Pitchfork]

  • Savages have just announced a collaboration with their friends Bo Ningen in the form of a 37-minute “simultaneous sonic poem”. Inspired by the Dadaist club Cabaret Voltaire and the simultaneous poetry enacted there in post-WWI era, the two groups first performed “Words To The Blind” this past May in London’s The Red Gallery and will re-record it in the studio for a co-release by Stolen Recordings / Pop Noire Records on November 17th. Here’s a video trailer of the original performance:

  • Last month, A$AP Ferg remixed Haim‘s “My Song 5″ and now they’ve shared a hilarious video to go with it. SNL‘s Vanessa Bayer plays a Jerry Springer knock-off named Dallas Murphy who interviews the Haim sisters and A$AP Ferg. Exra Koenig and Ke$ha also make appearances. [Pitchfork]
