Ra Ra Riot has a way of making me feel as if all is right with the world. And not that there's anything wrong with Tokyo Police Club, but this new remix of "Juno" featuring Ra Ra Riot is the only way they could possibly be any better.

Tokyo Police Club also recently stopped by Spinner's LA studios to record an Interface Session. Check it out here.

Interface Session track listing:
1. Tessellate
2. The Harrowing Adventures Of...
3. Centennial
4. The Nature Of The Experiment


My favorite woman in rock/obsession, Jenny Lewis, has pushed the release date on her newest solo album Acid Tongue from September 9th to September 23rd. I was able to call 1-888-717-ACID (2243) and hear the title track, however there are quite a few other ways to do so (including one following this little bit). Don't go expecting to hear The Watson Twins backing her up this time, though; instead, Lewis nabbed Elvis Costello, M Ward and Zooey Deschanel of She & Him, Jonathan Rice and Chris Robinson of The Black Crowes to accompany her throughout the album. I just hope this is a hell of a lot better than the last Rilo Kiley album. Oh, and one last thing, you can also hear "The Next Messiah" (track 3) on Lewis' Myspace.

Acid Tongue track listing:
1. Black Sand
2. Pretty Bird
3. The Next Messiah
4. Bad Man's World
5. Acid Tongue
6. See Fernando
7. Godspeed
8. Carpetbaggers
9. Trying My Best to Love You
10. Jack Killed Mom
11. Sing a Song for Them


Vampire Weekend's "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa" ha been remixed by Esau Mwamwaya + Radioclit for their upcoming collaborative release. The record is set to include guest "apperances" by M.I.A., BLK JKS, Santogold and Marina of Bonde Do Role.
