New Music From Jim James, The Strokes, More
Good morning! The first solo album from My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, Regions of Light and Sound of God, is streaming on NPR a week ahead of its February 5 release; The Strokes have a new song, “One Way Trigger“; and there isn’t currently but will soon be a new Daft Punk album (out this spring). And SNL‘s “YOLO” digital short was funny and strangely catchy, right?
Elsewhere: The BBC has a history of high heels (see also: Men in High Heeled Shoes in Art); New York has a long, long chat with Steven Soderbergh (“I’m importing this liquor from Bolivia … You can drink it like water and then you’re invisible”); and HuffPo and the L.A. Times have a few SAG Award red-carpet misfires and successes.
