New Music on the Blogs

Happy Friday everyone. A lot of good stuff floating around this week. First off, a very exciting new project from Justin Vernon of Bon Iver. Then a new live song from Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova (aka The Swell Season or the duo from Once), an inspired mash-up of Radiohead and Dave Brubeck, and a track from the XX, who just played a sold-out show at Pianos. The other big track that was blowing up the blogs this week came from my friend Dan's band Le Loup who look like they're on the verge of becoming huge.

"Island, IS" - Volcano Choir

"Fantasy Man" - Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova

"Five Step" - Radiohead vs. Dave Brubeck

"Crystalised" - The XX

"Beach Town" - Le Loup

Finally, you may have heard the live version, but now Antony & the Johnsons have put out an official music video of their epic Beyonce cover.
