- Lady Gaga’s new album, “Born This Way” — not so hot. But worth 99 cents? That’s how much it’ll cost you to buy it through Amazon.

- Current indie rock bands such as St. Vincent, Tune-Yards, Wye Oak, and Ted Leo performed tribute sets to indie rock icons profiled in Michael Azerrad’s great document of the ’80s underground, “Our Band Could Be Your Life.” NPR recorded the entire thing, so you can listen to Ted Leo do Minor Threat, Titus Andronicus play the Replacements, St. Vincent take on Big Black and, uh, Buke and Gass for some reason tackling Fugazi. Hey, it mostly worked.

- Congrats to our own Chris Richards, as well as freelancers Jason Cherkis and Lauren Wilcox, who each had stories from The Post selected for Da Capo’s Best Music Writing 2011 book. The winning stories: “In Maryland, George Clinton, Parliament-Funkadelic and a missing Mothership” (Richards), “For the Record” (Cherkis), “Notes from a wedding” (Wilcox).
