The National, Thanksgiving Song

Oh no. Now I’ve gone down the internet rabbit hole of Bob’s Burgers songs, and apparently The National covered Linda’s “Thanksgiving Song.” How did I miss this? I’ll admit Linda’s version is catchier. Maybe Matt Berninger’s ironically singing from the perspective of the doomed turkey.

St. Vincent, Bad Girls

Bob’s Buskers! Brilliant! Yet another reason why this is one of the best shows on TV right now.

Apparently Stephen Merritt’s going to do one soon. Hopefully, “The Harry Truman Song.”

The Australian singer and writer Nick Cave assembles a string of slow-burning ballads that seethe and surprise, punctuated by Warren Ellis’ gorgeous strings and bits of Cave’s own grabby, pervy innuendo.

I love Jeopardy.

Wait, why isn’t everyone talking about this?

Ha, I thought it was just one category! 

I’m a little concerned with the “Yeah, We Went There” category. —Lars

CHVRCHES, Recover

distantrecords:

“If I recover, will you be my comfort?”

The elusive Swedish Scottish electropop outfit responsible for one of my favorite pop singles of 2012, The Mother We Share, has finally released a new song through Pitchfork. Their debut EP, Recover, is set to drop March 25th in the UK on Virgin Records and March 26th in the US on Glassnote.

Finally an EP date. Now maybe it’ll show up on Rdio.

quote
Every time that I’d be standing there on stage, at least at some point in the show, I had to just pinch myself to realize that I was really up there on the stage. Every one of these guys was my hero before I even knew them, you know? Because really, the first time I ever heard Waylon [Jennings], I was a janitor at the recording studio at Columbia Recording in Nashville. And I volunteered to do a Saturday [cleaning shift] when Waylon was doing a demo, and I’d never heard anything like him. It was a real eye-opener to find myself on the same stage with these guys. Because Johnny Cash, as human as he is — or was — he was always larger than life. He always felt like something right off of Mount Rushmore.
