It has been an über hectic week for both Justin and I, leading to a little bit lighter posting on the site. I’ve been dealing with all sorts of projects mixing this way and that with moments of frenzy and periods of lull….it’s almost a bit like the ups and downs of Sigur Ros’s new album, með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust. Speaking of which, that crazy Icelandic crew has just added a bunch of dates to its world tour, including more U.S. shows and some dates in Japan. Okay, that may be an the awful segue, but the news is not awful and is sure to get a few folks excited.

Moving on to some other news bites:

And you know we can’t end the week without them! Hot off their big Bonnaroo show last weekend, My Morning Jacket played Late Night with Conan O’Brien last night. Interestingly, they managed to squeeze in a shortened version of one of their longer cuts from Evil Urges, called “Touch Me I’m Going to Scream, Pt. 2” — which just so happens to be one of my favs. Check it out:
