Obviously we’re not as cool as Miss Modernage, but you already knew that. Check out Laura’s excellent account of the swanky event and learn all about the album.

The Electric Sixy first single “Blue Orchid” has been making the blog rounds. Try here or here for an MP3.

Get Behind Me Satan will be released June 7. Stereogum’s all for Satanic rock (and the devil did have the Best Week Ever last week.) The Louvin Bros got nothing on Jack & Meg.

White Stripes fans should make this their desktop wallpaper and keep an eye out for a Gondry-directed “Orchid” clip on the MTV2.
