* And speaking of albums we announced, power-pop songster and Raconteur Brendan Benson will release his What Kind of World via his own label in April, and he just premiered the tune "Bad for Me" via Stereogum. Hear that one below, too.
* As promised, Third Man Records just released the latest installment in their Blue Series. It's a 7-inch featuring two tunes from Detroit's Duane the Teenage Weirdo: "Postcard From Hell" b/w "Bubblegum Encore." You can hear the A Side via TMR or embedded after the jump. It's a sassy dose of electro-glam, it is. And in case you forgot (how could you have??), the next Blue Series installment will feature Tom Jones.
* I once described locals Colorfeels as being "chameleonic in their ability to divine a strong melody via whatever means necessary." If you want to see the chameleons in action, have a look right here or after the jump at the Bywater Session they just shot in NOLA. A rock band with a clarinet, what?!?
* Local dance-punk high schoolers What Up English have a video for their tune "Pompeii," and it's riddled with goofy shenanigans like basement dance partying and eating incredibly hot peppers. You know, stuff that will make you feel old. See that one here or after the jump.
