Gayngs is comprised of musicians from groups like Bon Iver, P.O.S., Megafaun, Solid Gold, The Rosebuds, and Lookbook. Rumor has it they’re up to 24 peeps now. This means each member will probably earn very little money off the project. Our recommendation? Convert Gayngs to a solo project! The group’s debut, Relayted, is set for release May 11 on Jagjaguwar.

“Breathe” [Pink Floyd cover on Jimmy Fallon]
The Flaming Lips were on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to promote the vinyl release of their cover of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. It all culminates in this little Hulu video stream.

“I Was Playing Drums”
Efterklang’s Magic Chairs (TMT Review) was released earlier this year on 4AD. It’ll be released as a special-deluxe limited-edition box set with original artwork, a 200-page mini book, three posters, a button, two eye patches, and a bottle of fish oil pills next week.
Here’s the official video for LCD Soundsystem’s “Drunk Girls.” The video’s cool, but the music? Hmm. This is Happening is due mid-next month on DFA/Virgin/Parlophone.
