Also in heavy rotation at the moment is Weekend, by the Swedish band The Sounds; it's a 2013 release I'm just coming to enjoy. Meanwhile, I read that Neil Finn has an album coming out, along with new music from Neon Trees, the Hold Steady and Wild Beasts. This musical year is shaping up nicely, indeed.
In the following clip by Broken Bells, Ringo Starr plays drums. Sort of.
