News this week: Mavis on Conan, Thao with tUne-yaRds, and the almighty Richard Swift
It's been another cold and wet week out there for most of us, so why not cap it off with Thao reminding everyone of what's in store for the summer to be. Ah, summer.
Speaking of Thao, news was released this week of her upcoming tUnE-yaRds produced collaboration with Mirah, including a free download, via Pitchfork.
A few other bits we picked up the past couple weeks....
Mavis Staples played on Conan and also gave an amazing interview on Morning Becomes Electric at KCRW.
