WeekSauce: SPIN’s Friday Night Highlights

• Welcome to the end of the week that killed Lana Del Rey’s career made Lana Del Rey an even bigger Internet star. SNL, you are a cruel mistress.

• Also dramatic — SPIN’s first trip to Sundance! Phoebe Reilly ran down her 20 most anticipated films, and then headed off to Park City, where she’ll be filing dispatches for us starting tonight!

• No Age got into a scrap with the Kings of Leon, while Elton John and his husband got into a disagreement with reality.

• SPIN spoke to Azealia Banks about landing a record deal and chatted with Amanda Palmer about covering the Violent Femmes’ first full album. Wayne Coyne also opened up about recording a track with a crew of “weirdos” who showed up on his doorstep unannounced and uninvited (but turned out to be okay).

• We brought you a new video from MNDR, free tracks from Ben Kweller and Oberhofer, and full album streams of new discs from Lacuna Coil and Imperial Teen.

• We caught Santigold’s first show debuting new material from Master of My Make Believe and saw Sharon Van Etten play her new LP Tramp at what’s presumably one of her last tiny New York City gig.
