The Muppets was famous for bringing the great and good of music into its furry puppet world – something they have only gone and done again with The Green Album. A host of artists including My Morning Jacket, OK Go and Weezer have all come together and covered classic Muppets tracks – you can stream it at NPR now.
Pavement’s Stephen Malkmus has been working predominantly over the last few years with new band, The Jicks, and for their new album Mirror Traffic he's also enlisted the help of Beck. Have a listen to the result again at NPR ahead of its release next week.
Sao Paulo’s quirky – that’s a conservative way of putting it – dance rock group are back. CSS haven’t released an album for three years, and La Liberacion, is now available to stream. Intrigued to see what Lovefoxxx and co have been up to – head over to Spin.
And to finish off the trio of albums from NPR – they also have Chelsea Wolfe’s Apokalypsis – think gothicy female femme fatales such as Zola Jesus and Portishead’s Beth Gibbons if you’re unsure.
