I think the general consensus, being that the weekend seemed to be amazing for all, is that we're already over this work week and primed for another Fri-Sat-Sun stretch of radness.




Until then, we'll power on as be[a]st we know how...with a sprinkling of bits and smiling through the grind...

It's like already 80 degrees here in New York City. Fitting that we're on that same level of bits today.

Win LCD Soundsystem's This is Happening and Limited Edition Poster!

Sure, leaks are inevitable. But there's something to be said for having a physical copy of an album that makes the listening experience that much more pleasurable. Tangible and rad...we dig it.



And so goes the case with LCD Soundsystem's spectacular new album, This is Happening. Granted it's been available, by whatever means (illegally), for a hot minute, but if it's the hard copy you want in your mitts, then you've come to the right spot.

Now if it's "free" you're in the market for, then enter the contest below, because I'm giving away a copy of This is Happening along with an HQ limited edition poster. (US residents only. Sorry mates.)

Contest will remain open until 5pm this Friday, May 21(hint: you have to be following me on the birdaliciously rad social app, so I can Direct Message winner with all the pertinent info)

Much like the weather in New York City, we've hit the septet mark.

Last night was pretty rad...and more on that later. But for now, there are bits to be beasted and there's no stopping us now.



Double numbers today...so everyone gets a high 5 and a "how do you do!" And this awesome news...


LCD Soundsystem's long awaited album, This is Happening, leaked last night, well before the May 17 release date. We'd be dumb to host it (so we're not, duh!), but with a little sleuthing, you can find it. The band played a sold out show at Webster Hall last night. Check out pics and a review here.


Supergrass broke up. Bummer. Read more on the split here.

IT. JUST. KEEPS. COMING. DOWN. The snow, that is. After a few days of weird wintry mix here in NYC, the snow finally came to a fall. And by fall, I mean a huge dump of drifts and dastardly accumulation. Fittingly enough, our inbox keeps stockpiling up thanks to a superfluous couple of days. 


No complaints here. So grab a shovel, and let's start digging through the cool stuff. (puns!) 


Mystery Jets, Hot Chip and Crystal Castles have been added to the bill for this summer's Estrella Levante SOS 4.8 Festival, which takes place in Murcia, Spain. More details and ticket info by jumping here. 

Rusko's Woo Boost EP is out now. Stream it here then buy it by clicking this hot link. Additionally, Mad Decent have just launched their much sexier and super streamlined web site. Check it out!

LCD Soundsytem's new album is done, according to Jame Murphy. Read and watch and love everything about this piece of news here.

Mark Ronson has been working with Boy George on the latter's new album. Additionally, the BG released a video for his new cut, Amazing Grace, featuring the vocals of Ana Lains. Bonus! We've got the acoustic version of the track to give you...for free. Gobble it up below.

BBC is planning to axe radio stations 6 Music and Asian Networkas part of a strategic rethink, according to a report that appeared in The Times today. Say it ain't so...save the music!
