What better way to spend a Friday morning then with your pixelated friends.
This week, we bring you the first single off Effi Briest's long-awaited debut LP on Sacred Bones, Ghostface in a chick flick, Vampire Weekend's art of the cameo, the first Kanye West video not dictated item-per-item by every Kanye whim, gangsta folk lip-synching, and the ongoing resurgence of American interest in Fela Kuti.
Also, we might see It Might Get Loud after all.
