Listen To Bon Iver's 'Beth/Rest' From The New iTunes Session

Bon Iver's 7-track  iTunes Session is out today and includes not only songs from Justin Vernon and his 9-man band, but a cover of Björk's "Who Is It?"

Watch Daniel Radcliffe In Slow Club's Video For 'Beginners'

Sheffield's clever folk-rock duo Slow Club have a devoted fan in actor Daniel Radcliffe. The Harry Potter star is so besotted with the band (he's even interviewed Charlie Watson and Rebecca Taylor for a magazine) that he agreed to star in Slow Club's new video for "Beginners." Watch Radcliffe's solo, lip-synching turn through the clip, playing an anguished guy drunkenly reeling around a deserted Finsbury Park pub. Slow Club's excellent sophomore album Paradise is out now on Moshi Moshi.

Chris Mars Helps Out Former Replacements Bandmate Slim Dunlap

Former Replacements and Golden Smog drummer Chris Mars, who stepped away from music to focus on his visual art, has returned with a new song to help out fellow Replacements bandmate Bob "Slim" Dunlap who suffered a debilitating stroke earlier this year and remains hospitalized. The song, called "When I Fall Down," is available for sale now and proceeds will go towards Dunlap's medical costs.

The TAS Top 20 For The Week Ending June 24

With Beach House and Best Coast vying for the Number One spot this week as we segue to a new season, The Alternate Side is firmly in a summertime frame of mind.

The Walkmen: TAS In Session

The Walkmen must be feeling pretty upbeat given the wildly enthusiastic response to the band's seventh album Heaven, a record which parallels the quintet's tenth anniversary. It has also been the best of times for The Walkmen personally; all of the guys are married with children and that tender, domestic viewpoint is quietly reflected in Heaven's gentler temperament.  The Walkmen visited The Alternate Side not long ago for a live session (check out the videos after the jump) and also tackled an historic array of subjects, from broken arms to working with producer Phil Ek. Listen to the session this Friday, June 22, on TAS on 91.5 WNYE at 11 a.m. EDT, also streaming on The Alternate Side.

Morrissey Set For A Lengthy North American Tour

Morrissey Monday on The Alternate Side might temporarily be a Morrissey Wednesday on October 10 when the ornery Mancunian plays Radio City Music Hall, one date on the singer's 33-city North American tour this fall. Lucky Moz fans in Los Angeles will also be treated to a special appeance by Iggy and the Stooges for the November 24 show at the Staples Center.
