Earlier this week Coachella announced their lineup and the eagle-eyed amongst you might have noticed a certain Englishman amongst all the other heavy-hitters on the poster. 2012 was a reasonably quiet year for James Blake, but he’ll be back in full swing with an album this year. He is at the moment “preparing to unveil the details” of his second full length.
Before that though, he’ll be adding to those two Coachella dates with a full North American tour lasting a month and spanning most of the continent. Those of you who make it out might just get to hear some of that new material while it’s nice and fresh.

Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
