Vetiver : "Everyday" video

I posted this song a while ago, but now they just released a video for it. Check it out:

New St. Vincent - The Strangers

A new track has surfaced from St. Vincent's upcoming release, Actor, coming out on May 5th. I like this one, it's driving and atmospheric with some surprising distortion in the middle. I'm looking forward to the new album.

New Andrew Bird video

Check out this video for "Fitz and the Dizzyspells" off of Noble Beast. One of my favorite tracks on the album, and this is a great, charming video. It's not the standard video of using the recorded version, it's actually more like a live show video with more actors. Showcases lots of Chicago, most obviously in that it is shot at the Hideout, one of Chicago's best tiny venues, one that Bird just played at a few months ago, and surely packed the house for. Check it out:

So I've gotten my hands on the new Grizzly Bear, and let's just say it's awesome. My album of the year so far, and I don't see anything surpassing it, unless Radiohead comes out with a surprise disc. But even then, this is just that good. "Two Weeks" is the song of the year.
