Weekend Round-Up For January 25-27, 2013

Hello all! And welcome to the Weekend Edition of the Daily Round-Up. Let’s dive into the best music news that we’ve missed out on over the past 3 days.

Morrissey has sadly been diagnosed with a bleeding ulcer and has been forced to postpone some tour dates.

Kendrick Lamar was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live this weekend! You can check out his performances of two songs, as well as his appearance in a sketch by The Lonely Island. The sketch is hilarious and Kendrick’s addition to it is just too good. You have to watch it!

This news is so good I can’t even put into words how happy I am. Apparently My Bloody Valentine has performed a new song live, as well as hinted at their new album releasing this week. This is without a doubt our News of the Weekend. This is set to be My Bloody Valentine’s first album in almost 15 years. It’s a big huge deal!

And in some almost as amazing news, apparently there might be a new Daft Punk record coming out soon, possibly this Spring! It also looks like they have officially signed with Columbia records!

There’s a new track circulating from alternative group Dirty Beaches. People seem to like it! Check it out and maybe you will to.

The Knife released the artwork and tracklisting for their upcoming new record Shaking The Habitual.

Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake were seen shooting what looks like the music video for Timberlake’s new track Suit & Tie. They seem to be having a lot of fun and smiling a lot!

The Music Ninja posted a new track from producers MitiS and MaHi. The Music Ninja has dubbed the style of the song as “lovestep.” And if that’s not enough reason to listen to the track, I don’t know if anything will be. But you should check it out. It seems cool.

This may not qualify as news in the strictest sense of the word, but I for one love watching A$AP Rocky talk about how he likes other genres of music. So this little clip in which he discusses Vampire Weekend just hit all the right notes with me. I would also like to point out that A$AP is a much more intelligent and interesting person than people give him credit for. And he has a pretty awesome taste in music. So check it out, I guess? Yeah, you should check it out.

And finally, in case you haven’t already seen or heard, The Strokes have put out a new song! Check “One Way Trigger” out here. It’s the Track of the Day!

And that is all the news we have for today folks! Hope you have a great day!  Have questions, comments, suggestions, or love?
