- Yesterday we got or first taste of the Bon Iver/James Blake collaboration, Fall Creek Boys Choir, with the song “Enough Thunder” debuting on BBC Radio 1. And it sounds exactly as you’d expect it to sound.

- Did Strathmore break the Guinness World Record for Largest Ukukele Ensemble last night? Maybe. They tweeted that with 944 players they broke the previous record of 851. Huzzah! But then after some digging around (aka searching “Strathmore ukulele” on Twitter) it seems that some 1,547 Swedes shattered the previous record just last weekend on Aug. 20.
