Ok, so it’s been a couple days since I’ve posted, and it’s been a few too many days since I’ve posted about music. I’ll be fixing that today.

First, Death From Above 1979 has a video up for the Sammy Danger Remix of Black History Month. Pretty cool and pretty trippy.

Speaking of remixes and DFA, Jesse (bass/synth/vocals) is part of the remix duo MSTRKRFT (pronounced master craft). Mocking Music has put up two of their remixes for you, and also DFA’s Little Girl. If you’ve never checked them out, do so. Very fun and dancy, and addicting as hell. Handclaps, anyone?

If you’re an indie fan, or you’ve talked with me in the past month, then you’ve heard of Sufjan Stevens. If you haven’t then you should check him out. Unfortunately for Sufjan’s fans, though, he might be taking a hiatus from his well known 50 states project to work on other stuff, including a book. Some people say he’s been recording, though, and some people said that he has some stuff worked up for New Jersey. Gotta love rumours.

What else is going on out there in the world? Well, I’m a big proponent of fair trade, so Kofi’s Hat has an interesting challenge for those of you who frequent Starbucks. Apparently Starbucks will brew fair-trade coffee on request, and their coffee of the week this week is Cafe Estima (their only certified fair-trade blend), meaning it should already be brewing. So ask for fair-trade coffee when you go in and see how hard it is to get. Check Kofi’s Hat for more details.

Jon over at groundglass has a couple funny pictures up today.
