Charles Gallay, Wire ImageWhomp: There They Are
From across the universe, West Coast Sound has compiled a quick digital dump of music stories spanning the internutz, interpreted though the lens of the 17th century Japanese poetic form, the Haiku.
Artsy or fartsy?
Kanye goes all out on vid.
Jónsi hates your face.
All the news fit to blog: Jónsi cancels in-store tour after show at Origami Records, Local Natives debut new leisurely video, Kanye West releases half-hour video for "Runaway," U2 recording album with Danger Mouse, Ray Charles and Johnny Cash 'Lost' duet surfaces, Axl Rose beats up a Bentley, and Katy Perry marries Russell Brand in India.
Jónsi's management says show at Origami Vinyl was "awkward" -
"And standing there nose-to-nose with fans in the cold light of day the other day in Origami Records, Los Angeles, he had the sudden and undeniable realisation that this is not the environment in which he flourishes. Arguably it was the most uncomfortable experience of his ten years in the public eye, and as a result we are unwilling to put him in the line of fire again. To those of you who saw it in Echo Park, cherish it, because it ain't going to happen again."
What do you think? Awkward?
Kanye gets artsy or fartsy?
Local Natives enjoy the good life:
