Afternoon Music Notes
Feist and Mastodon are going to release a split single. This will be awesome, because Feist will be all like:

Primavera Sound 2012 Lineup:
Because music festivals in far-away places are amazing, you should consider this one in Barcelona – Primavera Sound Festival. This year’s lineup was announced today, and it includes Wilco, Mudhoney, and SBTRKT. Looks like a pretty eclectic lineup in a stunning location:
Stream The Roots’ New Album:
Pretty self explanatory – still one of the best hip hop acts around.
Jimmy Cliff to cover Rancid:
First, Little Roy released the a surprisingly awesome album of Nirvana covers. Now, Jimmy Cliff is recording an album produced by Rancid’s Tim Armstrong, that will include at least one Rancid cover – Ruby Soho. Punk and Reggae continue to converge. Some are saying Runk, but I will stick with Peggae.
New Black Star:
Mos Def and Talib Kweli have re-united as Black Star, for the first time (I think) since their SPECTACULAR eponymous 1998 release. Check it out.
