St. Paul & The Broken Bones released their new music video for their track called "Call Me" yesterday, which you can find in the replies. I guarantee this is the best thing you haven't listened to all week.
This morning, James Franco was a guest on ABC's "The View" and revealed that Kanye West actually called him and Seth Rogan concerning their "Bound 2" parody video, asking the pair to perform it at his wedding. It doesn't seem like it will actually be happening, but it's the thought that counts.
"Kim loved the video, and we didn't hear back from Kanye, so we kind of felt like 'he's not bashing us, but he probably hates it but he's not going to say anything.' But then two weeks ago, we got a call from Kanye. Seth and I were on the phone. We thought he was just going to let us have it. But he loved it! And I'm pretty sure I can say it now because I'm pretty sure it's not going to...

I think that sincerity is the thing I wanted to zero in on because thatís my biggest strength, I believe. Itís not going to be delivering a perfect vocal in perfect pitch, all those things. Itís going to be the perfect amount of sincerity. Thatís what I was shooting for, and luckily if thatís the goal, itís all within you. Youíre able to dig up that sincerity and that authenticity very easily if you really mean it.
Today I'm asking you to pay attention to something on the Internet, but the good news is that it will really only take you about five minutes. Sorority Noise is an indie/emo/punk band that I like from Connecticut and they are going to release a new record called Forgettable on May 15. It's coming out jointly via Storm Chasers Records (the label run by emo mayor Evan Weiss) and Broken World Media (the label run by emo sheriff Derek from The World Is A Beautiful Place etc). Buzzy, right?!

I have written all the Angels albums largely by myself. I had soo much I wanted to say at the timeÖ But soon even I was bored of myselfÖ of my tricks, vices, and routine chord progressions. Itís hard to quantify all that ilanrubin has added to this Angels album.. He truly has written and contributed on every single inchÖ. EVERY part, of every song, on every instrument with me. I have never in my life encountered a better musician. It has been a challenge to adapt both of our styles to eachother, but holy shit when we figured it out a year ago (a year in to the 2 year journey)...
Portugal. the Man have put together a very cool promotion for Earth Day. They've recorded an "endangered song" to help raise awareness of the endangered Sumatran Tiger. I got a rare vinyl in the mail (one of only 400 were created) with the message that it will degrade after a certain number of plays and that the only way to make sure the song lives on is to share it -- so, I ripped the file and have uploaded it for you (check the replies). Take a listen and don't forget to check out this website for more information on this entire project and the Sumatran Tiger.
