Mar 9, 2014 12:26pm | Brooklyn Vegan
Last night (3/8) was a very Brooklyn episode of Saturday Night Live with Girls' star/creator Lena Dunham hosting, and The National as musical guest. The National performed "Graceless" and "I Need My Girl," both of which are from the band's 2013 album, Trouble Will Find Me and you can watch video of both below.
To up last night's starpower, the episode also featured a bevy of cameos: Liam Neeson, John Hamm, and former SNL castmember Fred Armisen. The next new episode of SNL is March 29 with Louis CK as host. No musical guest has been announced, unless Louis is gonna pull a Drake.
The National will play two Celebrate Brooklyn!

Listen: Big K.R.I.T.s new song Steps
Mar 9, 2014 11:26am | Cosequence Of Sound
Big K.R.I.T. returns with the final entry in his “Week of K.R.I.T.” music series. Featuring Big SANT & Smoke DZA, “Steps” is one-part braggadocios banger and one-part New Age-y mantra about the importance of forward momentum, set to a thudding medley of looped piano and crunchy bass. Listen in below.
The series also featured the Rick Ross-aided “New Agenda”, “Conscious Effort (Freestyle)”, “Wolf on Wallstreet”, “Egyptian Cotton”, and the ASAP Ferg-aided “Lac Lac”.
K.R.I.T. also shared a preview of his sophomore album Cadillactica, due out sometime this fall. Check out the teaser trailer below, which sounds reminiscent of Stankonia-era Outkast.
Listen: Arcade Fire covers Princes Controversy, Win Butler steals Princes head
Mar 9, 2014 10:21am | Cosequence Of Sound
The setlist for the first U.S. show of Arcade Fires Reflektor tour listed a cover of Princes 1981 funk classic “Controversy”, but ultimately Win Butler and Co. opted for a cover of The Rolling Stones’ “The Last Time” instead. They stuck to their original plan last night, however, when they pulled out the Prince cover during a concert in the Purple One’s native Minneapolis. Not only that, but Win Butler wore a digital box displaying the faces of Prince and Michele Bachmann. Listen to a recording below (before Prince inevitably pulls it down from SoundCloud) (via ArcadeFireTube).
As Stereogum points out, last night’s show also included brief covers of Lady Gagas Do What U Want and Black Eyes Peas I Gotta Feeling” during “Rococo” and Guns N Roses Sweet Child O Mine and Aerosmiths I Dont Want To Miss A Thing” during “Normal Person”.

R.I.P. South Carolina hip-hop artist Speaker Knockerz
Mar 9, 2014 9:33am | Fact Magazine
The rising talent was just 19 years old.
Sad news: rapper/producer Speaker Knockerz (born Derek McAllister) was found dead in his Columbia, SC home late last week. An autopsy revealed no sign of trauma and results are pending toxicology and other studies; no foul play is suspected.
McAllister emerged in 2012, producing tracks for the likes of fellow rap upstarts Shy Glizzy, Jose Guapo, and Young Dolph; he also scored a track on Gucci Mane and Young Scooter’s Free Bricks II mixtape. As a rapper, he released two full-length, self-produced efforts: Married to the Money and Finesse Father.
