The main music news of the week is Beyonce
's amazing show at the Super Bowl, right? Destiny's Child
performed 'Single Ladies' and it's EXACTLY how you dreamed it!
My Bloody Valentine

if you're so inclined.

have released a video for their slow-burning single 'Love Alright'. It's the perfect kind of music for having epiphany's by yourself in the desert.
Melody’s Echo Chamber
has released a B-side to single 'Crystalized', called 'Je Me Perds De Vue'. It's super dreamy and arguably better than 'Crystalized':
