Friday Bears: Sasquatch! 2012 lineup revealed

Sasquatch!, held every year in the Pacific Northwest, isn't regarded as one of the bigger music festivals in the United States, but is usually regarded as one of the best.

Last year, festival organizers enlisted the talents of the Foo Fighters, Wilco, Death Cab for Cutie, Modest Mouse, The Flaming Lips, and lot more over the course of four (yes, four) days. While that may be fairly impressive for what isn't regarded as one of the year's bigger events, this year's does boast a fairly heavy - although not as top-heavy - lineup, which you can read in it's entirety here.

Notables in this year's lineup include, but are not limited to Jack White, whose solo album is set to debut a few weeks before the fest, and is the first confirmed show of the ex-White Stripe. Alongside White will be Bon Iver, who seem to be on pace to play every festival this year, the ever-elusive Beck, The Shins, Tenacious D, The Roots, and native heroes Shabazz Palaces, among many others, including comedy acts.

Tickets are on sale now for $315. The event will take place May 25-28

New Daniel Rossen - Silent Song

While Grizzy Bear may be prepping for a new album later this year, members of the band have been doing a lot in the mean time. Ed Droste was recently married, Chris Taylor released his first studio album as CANT last fall, and now Daniel Rossen is set to release his own solo studio effort. We heard Rossen's first song "Saint Nothing,"  off the upcoming Silent Hour/Golden Mile EP a few weeks back, but "Silent Song" is more assuredly worth your time. Listen below.

Wednesday Bears: Trailer Trash Tracy's video for "Engelhardt's Arizona"

There shouldn't be much of a reason why I ask you to watch the new Trailer Trash Tracys' video for "Engelhardt's Arizona." The 'Here-there-everywhere' imagery play, spliced with the song's languid, off-center pace combine for a deceivingly memorable output. You watch.

New Pretty Lights - We Must Go On

Pretty Lights debuted his newest video for "We Must Go On" earlier today, another particularly well-done trip hop cut set with street shots. If you're trying to recognize where the video is, don't bother. The shots come from all across North America and Europe. Watch below.

New Shabazz Palaces video - Are You ... Can You ... Were You? (Felt)

Shabazz Palaces debuted their new video for (and this is the title) "Are You ... Can You ... Were You?(Felt)" earlier today, a spectacularly well-shot and well-paced video directed by Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes. The video features an incredibly attractive woman dealing with somewhat normal problems, placated by slip-ins of Shabazz-centric imagery. Watch below.

And it goes without saying that Black Up, Shabazz Palaces' latest album, is available now and must-listen.

Monday Bears: New Jack White - Love Interrupted

It's been a long time coming. Ever since the effective end of the White Stripes, it's all been a matter of the waiting game until Jack White would truly release some real solo material. And while I can't imagine this will hault the eventual work of The Dead Weather and The Raconteurs, it's better than five-minute shots on Storage Wars.

Listen to White's first single "Love Interrupted" below, and grab his first solo album Blunderbuss this April.
