Slint Spiderland
In 1991, Nirvana exploded with Nevermind, instantly changing the musical landscape and ushering "alternative" music into the mainstream. Their influence was immediate and undeniable, that year, another band would release an album that would also have a lasting impression on a new generation of musicians. Four young lads from Louisville, Kentucky known as Slint quietly dropped their final album Spiderland, but in the two decades since, it has grown into one of the most post-rock albums of all time. And now, the story of the band and those songs is being told.

Her, Joaquin Phoenix
In case you're just waking up or haven't talked to anyone today, we'll gently remind you that this morning the Oscar nominations were unveiled, and were pleased to see Spike Jonze's "Her" capture four nominations including Best Picture, Best Song, Best Screenplay and Best Score (the latter was a pleasant surprise). And now it looks like we'll have even more reason to celebrate Jonze's wonderfully melancholy look at love, technology and relationships.

As far as pet projects go, Adam Scott's "Greatest Event In Television History" might be one of the most fun of them kicking around. Getting the idea to do overblown remakes of opening sequences for classic television shows, Scott launched the first "event" last fall, teaming up with reluctant and selfish Jon Hamm to redo "Simon & Simon." It was a pretty amusing endeavor, with Jeff Probst hosting a TV special going behind the scenes of the shoot for the one minute sequence, in pretty hilarious fashion. Well, Scott is back and this time he's teaming up with his "Parks and Recreation" love interest Amy Poehler for another event that is even greater than the last one.

Maybe we should watch Adult Swim more often instead of going to bed early, but thankfully we live in the wonderful world of YouTube. Late last Thursday night, the network aired "The Greatest Even In Television History" and featuring a gallery of our favorite people, and while it's a pretty awesome concept, it's even better because it lives up to the promise.

Over the years, there have been numerous bands and artists that are as synonymous with their work as they are with New York City, and in recent memory few have been more connected to the Big Apple than LCD Soundsystem. James Murphy's celebrated band served as an unofficial soundtrack to the city, the ambition of its youth, the summer nights that blended into the morning, its disappointments and its surprises. As you well know, the band broke up with a helluva goodbye, with a four-hour blowout at Madison Square Garden in February 2011. But the tributes keep rolling in for a band that will not soon be forgotten....

If you paid any attention to the music world last year, there is no doubt that Odd Future crossed your radar. The brash, crass, eclectic and excellent hip hop collective earned equal amounts praise and criticism from critics for their dark and violent songs, yet at the same time, they were one of the most creative and interesting things happening in all of hip hop. 2012 will see them to continue to grow, quickly moving into TV with their Adult Swim show "Loiter Squad" (bonkers trailer here) premiering this Friday. But the music isn't far behind, and today the group dropped The Odd Future Tape Vol. 2. And lo and behold, an impromptu video has arrived.
