Landon Pigg has had an incredible week. Not only did he release his new album, The Boy Who Never, last Tuesday, but to follow it up on Friday, he made his feature film debut in the Drew Barrymore-directed, WHIP IT. To celebrate the man of many talents, RAGGED Magazine has just released a special behind-the-photoshoot featurette with exclusive access to Landon in between jumps and poses for the camera. The resulting video is an endearing look at an artist who confesses an appreciaton for Nashville roots, Harry Nilsson, and...striped socks.

You gotta listen to the new single from Vampire Weekend. It's called "Horchata" and it was just released. Just a few weeks ago they announced the release date and gave us some info on their upcoming release. Now we have a new single to satisfy our cravings for new stuff from VW.
From “Hundred Hearts”—Scott’s ode to the trials of the human heart with an insatiably catchy gang chorus—to “Drug Party”—a dream sequence of social disconnection set to overblown distorted guitar and brash snare hits—to “What This World Is Coming To”—a diffuse atmosphere alternating with quirky, pounding choruses—to the apocalyptic electro-pop of Krista’s lead vocal on “Give Me the Sun,” to “Nervous Wreck’s” triumphant chorus “sing without and hold together,” the songs are isolated and comforting, difficult and alluring, fractured and fragile…People Are Soft.
