Violens have delightfully mashed up the title track from the Very Best’s Warm Heart of Africa. Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig sings on the track and sounds as giddy as can be.

Last Wednesday, the ubiquitous Phoenix continued to make the rounds by appearing on Last Call with Carson Daly. The band pulled out the fan favorite “1901”, which was not only played on Conan and Craig Ferguson, but it’s also the background music for the newest Cadillac commercials.
This clip not only provides great live footage of the band at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles, but it has a short documentary on the band, giving fans and new listeners background on Phoenix and their newest release, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix.
The Flaming Lips stopped by KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic last Friday and performed a bunch of songs from their latest, Embryonic, as well as a cover of Pink Floyd’s “Eclipse”, because they’ll be covering Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety with Star Death and White Dwarfs.
This video could have taken all of twenty minutes to film, but everyone looks to be enjoying themselves. It’d be hard not to, the song being of the infectious sort that you sing in your head with made-up lyrics for days before you learn the real ones. “When We Swam” is from Know Better Learn Faster.
