Forgive me for not knowing too much (okay, anything) about BADBADNOTGOOD. There's not a ton of information out there, but from what I can tell from the group's Youtube channel, is that they're fairly high-caliber hip-hop instrumentalists. Most of the videos are worth a viewing, but the video for "Orange Juice" below featuring Tyler, The Creator is pretty fucking spectacular. Watch below.

Of Montreal, which took me until now to find out they're actually from Athens, Georgia, are consistently chaotic, offbeat, flamboyant, and flat-out interesting, both live and in studio. That being said, Paralytic Stalks should be worth your time.
You can stream the entire album over at Pretty Much Amazing, and listen to the album's first single "Wintered Debts" below.

Watching the Le Sera video for "Please Be My Third Eye," you may recognize red-headed girl as Katy Goodman (Kickball Katy) of Vivian Girls fame. She released her self-titled debut last year, but it pretty much came off as more Vivian Girls songs, so this sounds like a good change of pace. Watch the video below and grab the song download here, via Gorilla vs. Bear.

The days when Wilco is performing on late night TV still seem incredibly far away for the Chicago veterans. Last night, the band appeared on Conan to promote their new iTunes session (available now), performing two tracks from their latest release, The Whole Love. Watch them both below.
Fiona Apple is an American myth. She rarely does shows, is perpetually 24-years old, has only a few albums, but is still very popular, despite the relatively light work-load in her two-decade career. So when the Manhattan native announced her first album (for real this time) since 2005's Extraordinary Machine, it was meant to be noticed.
According to sources, we're at the least expecting a new album "soon" without any regard of when exactly, or what it could be. Stay tuned for that.

Three years after the release of Noble Beast, Andrew Bird released "Eyeoneye," the first official single from March's Break It Yourself. Alongside the release, Bird will be going on a short tour through the U.S. with stops in Philly and New York. As an added bonus, if you plan to see Bird live, you'll also receive a digital copy of Break It Yourself and two additional live EP's. Check the tour dates at Bird's site, and listen to "Eyeoneye" below.
