Big Boi – Lines (feat. A$AP Rocky & Phantogram)(MP3)
While we won't have another Outkast album, next month comes the next best thing, Big Boi's follow-up to 'Sir Lucious Left Foot'. Big Boi says Andre 3000 is not on the album because he's too busy doing Gillette commercials.

Excited for the new album, 'Fade', due January 15, and their new tour.

Kurt Cobain's Top 50 Albums, Beach House - Wild (video), Phantogram - Don't Move (video), Infinite Jukebox
Kurt Cobain's Handwritten Top 50 Albums List
Interesting to see Public Enemy and The Slits on this list. The Vaselines, David Bowie, and Leadbelly are listed and are well known to fans as they were also covered on the Unpluggged album. Black Flag is the only group to make the list twice.
Beach House - Wild
New, depressing video from Beach House. Possibly NSFW.
Phantogram - Don't Move
Official video comes nearly a year after the release of what is still their best song. Features a girl who reminds me vaguely of Carrie plus the cube from Mulholland Drive.
The Infinite Jukebox
The most fun I've had with a web music program since The Wub Machine. Unfortunately, it only works in Google Chrome. Part of a series of projects introduced at MIT's Music Hack Day this past weekend.
