Austin rockers White Denim are preparing their new album Stiff, which hits on March 25, and they've debuted a new song and announced a tour with ex-Yellowbirds frontman Sam Cohen in anticipation. The new song is called "Holda You (I'm Psycho)," and it's a fast, riffy-piece of southern-fried blues-rock. You can stream it below.
That tour will stop in NYC for a show at Bowery Ballroom on April 25. Tickets for that go on fan presale January 8 at noon, AmEx presale on January 13 at noon, and on sale to the general public January 15 at noon.

The first season of FX series Fargo, loosely based on the Coen Brothers 1996 film of the same name, defied expectations by being really good. The second season continues to defy, by actually being possibly better than the first -- something True Detective could not pull off. (Final judgement withheld till Monday's season finale.) Season 2 also cleverly draws from the rest of the Coen Brothers universe, incorporating flashes from their other films into Fargo's world, this season set in 1979. It's got a great cast (Patrick Wilson, Ted Danson, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Nick Offerman to name a few), balances humor, tension and very human moments deftly, and is one of the best-looking shows on TV.
The second season also ups the ante with an amazing soundtrack filled with brilliantly chosen, sometimes surprising, songs from the era, but also cover versions of songs used in various Coen Brothers films. The fourth episode uses The Chieftains & Bon Iver's version of "Down in the Willow Garden" (which is woven throughout Raising Arizona), but they've commissioned a number of covers just for the show, including: Blitzen Trapper's great, '70s southern-fried boogie take on "Man of Constant Sorrow" (from O Brother Where Art Thou?); Tweedy doing Jose Felciano's "Let's Find Each Other Tonight" (originally in Fargo); White Denim turn Kenny Rodgers' "Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)" (used in The Big Lebowski) into cheesy disco; and Spoon's Britt Daniel delivers a fine solo acoustic version of Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Run Through the Jungle" (also Lebowski). It comes off like a Coen Brothers tribute album (for that matter Fargo is at times like a Coen Brothers tribute series).
None of the original recordings of these have been released yet in any official way, and there's been no word on a soundtrack yet, apart from there will be one. But people have been ripping them and putting them on YouTube. Listen to rips of Blitzen Trapper, Britt Daniel, and White Denim's contributions (and that Cheiftains/Bon Iver cover), and check out the soundtrack listing of each episode (courtesy show music supervisor Maggie Phillips' blog), below.

Chance the Rapper / wet Glen Hansard / Run the Jewels / London Grammar
4:20 PM: When his phone is handy, Killer Mike likes to tweet out a 4:20 reminder every day.

The psychedelic Tame Impala / Flaming Lips tour, which we also caught in NYC, got even wilder last night in San Francisco as the show at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium coincided with everyone's favorite day to play dress up.
Similarly, the co-headliners, with Austin's White Denim in town, played the two nights prior in LA, both equally interesting:
I really do love Halloween," said a blood-soaked Wayne Coyne from his space agey podium. It was a special show called the Halloween Blood Bath at The Greek Theatre featuring co-headliners the Flaming Lips and Tame Impala with the fine men of White Denim as openers. The audience was a mix of some heavily costumed groups and some who were just there for the music. Nevertheless, it was a celebration and it immediately felt like it from the start. Coyne took the stage wearing a tiny white dress holding a white plastic cloak over his head that almost made him look like a fetus that was about to burst. The rest of the band emerged donning creepy Michael Myers masks, then fake Miley Cyrus carried by a giant bear came out with a bucket of blood (real pig's blood was what they initially told us) and poured it all over him as thousands of confetti flew into the air, making a magnificently theatrical intro that was accompanied by some dark instrumental music. It was a spectacle and nothing less than what I expected from Flaming Lips who's always been famous for their extravagant live performances. Impressively, he did not leave the stage to change at all and performed throughout the night doused in fake blood. [Restless Cities]We've got pictures from the Halloween show, where like Arcade Fire did on the same night in LA, the Lips covered Devo. Full setlist and more pictures below...
