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.
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.
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? As always, you can contact me through email at [email protected], or through Twitter @robincopple1. And check out my other articles here.

Stay safe you guys! I love you all.
