  1. The Decemberists have teamed up with Lin-Manuel Miranda for the #HamilDrops project, which will share previously unreleased songs by Miranda related to his hit musical Hamilton. The first offering is "Ben Franklin's Song," which features lyrics by Miranda and music by The Decemberists' frontman Colin Meloy and the band.
  2. Run the Jewels (the duo of Killer Mike and El-P) released their third album, the appropriately titled RTJ3 (aka Run the Jewels 3), earlier this year (well technically it dropped a little early, late last December). Now they have shared a video for "Call Ticketron."
  3. French singer/actress Charlotte Gainsbourg released a new album, Rest, last month via Because Music. (It was our Album of the Week.) Now she has shared a self-directed video for "Les Oxalis."
  4. To end out the week, we ask Emily Haines some questions about endings and death. Although born in New Delhi, India, she grew up in Ontario, Canada. Haines is perhaps best known as the lead vocalist for Metric, who formed in Toronto in 1998 and have released six albums, the most recent being 2015's Pagans in Vegas. 
  5. It has been six long years since Emil Svanängen released his last album as Loney dear, 2011's Hall Music. In the interim, Svanängen has endured much change, suffering ends to relationships both personal and professional and ultimately finding himself at an artistic crossroads, one that informs Loney dear's seventh album, the self-titled Loney dear.
