Hooray Friday!

- The Coachella lineup was released earlier this week and I haven’t seen a lot of positive comments around the blogosphere. While I think that the overall lineup isn’t too bad, it definitely lacks the heavy hitters that Coachella has delivered in years past. No offense to Jack Johnson, but there’s no way he should be the headliner, even if it’s the first day of the festival.

- This week, the lineup for Harley-Davidson’s 105th Anniversary summerfest in Milwaukee was released as well and gives Coachella a run for their money.

- Of Montreal covers M.I.A.’s “Jimmy and You Ain’t No Picasso has it for your enjoyment.

- Tapes ‘n Tapes’ new album, Walk It Off is due out on April 8th. P-Fork has an interview with TnT frontman Josh Grier. To wet your whistle, check out the You Ain’t No Picasso post from August with live versions of two of the tracks.

- More new album news. Let’s Sexy Fighting has the title track from Hot Chip’s latest, Made in the Dark set for a Feb 5th release.

- I'm not a big Arcade Fire fan, but I do recognize the fact that almost everyone else is. They've released a short film for "Black Mirror" and also the song's individual parts (i.e. drums, acappella). Gorilla vs. Bear provides the links.
