First up, Canadian indie rock veterans Stars are keeping the momentum of The Five Ghosts rolling, releasing a new single and video for "Changes." The video's concept, which was an interpretation of the song by director Jaron Albertin, boasts the disclaimer "Not Safe for Work," as a naked woman is the main focus of the video.
Next, another staple in indie rock, Death Cab for Cutie are back with the new album, Codes and Keys, which arrives May 31. The band released lead track "You Are a Tourist" during a radio interview while also plugging their DVD, Live at Mt. Baker Theatre, also to be released on May 31.
The 40th anniversary of the Junos saw some great performances by some of Canada's biggest names, including City and Colour and Daniel Romano, who covered the great Neil Young's "Old Man" in honour of Young. Next, Mississippi rapper Big K.R.I.T. has released another mixtape, entitled Return of 4eva, a 23-track effort with guest spots from Ludacris, David Banner and Chamillionaire.
Finally, Jane's Addiction have an upcoming album, The Great Escape Artist, with TV on The Radio studio whiz Dave Sitek. A preview of the disc, "End of Lies," was played on a Chilean radio station, which you can now check out.
