Not much to report other than the new Foxygen album, We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace and Magic (Jagjaguwar), is somewhat fantastic and should be sought out at any fine record store. It was produced by Richard Swift, who worked on the last two Mynabirds albums. Track “In the Darkness,” with the classic line: “There’s no need to be an asshole / You’re not in Brooklyn anymore…” is pure ’70s Stones, as Stonesy as you can get without dragging Mick into the studio.

Sun Settings has changed its name to Ego Death. Is the name better? Will the band sound different? Find out at O’Cursive’s Feb. 9.

In this week’s column, I make the argument that Figure Skating is, indeed, a sport (and who else is going to the championships this weekend?). Read it in this week’s issue of The Reader or online right here.

The $3 showcases at The Waiting Room continue tonight, this time brought to you by Odell Brewing Company and featuring Snake Island with creepy Lincoln guy Plack Blague, Swamp Walk and Ruby Block. Starts at 9.
