Jenna Bush loves R.E.M.

If you’re bummed about having to sit this year’s SXSW out, NPR’s got you covered. At midnight on Wednesday, you can stream R.E.M.’s performance at Stubbs and on Thursday, tune into Yeasayer at 2:30 pm and Vampire Weekend at 4 p.m. Later that night, catch the Whigs, My Morning Jacket and Yo La Tengo. Get more info here.

To help promote Del tha Funkee Homosapien’s Eleventh Hour, dropping this week on Definitive Jux, Mr. Dibbs has put his stamp on an 18-minute long montage to the album. Grab it below, thanks to Prefix Magazine.

Dance Party UK

Last week, London’s Cajun Dance Party announced that it would be releasing two albums in 2008. The band’s debut is due in April and will include the “The Next Untouchable” and “Amylase” singles that have been floating around for some time now. The LP’s third single, “The Race,” is currently streaming on the group’s MySpace page.

The Colourful Life comes out 4/28 on XL Records.

Grizzly Men

There’s no word on when we should expect LP3 from Grizzly Bear, but this new one, which was performed a couple of weeks ago on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, is very promising. Grab it below, via Gorilla vs. Bear, or stream the six-song studio performance right here.
