-- The xx recently were "so inspired" by the view from their room on the 33rd floor of a Tokyo hotel that singer Romy Madley Croft filmed a gorgeously minimalist performance of 'Angels,' the first single from the band's forthcoming 'Coexist' album.  It's definitely worth watching (video below).

-- Despite being from Belgium, Selah Sue doesn't think she'll ever sing in her native language. "Flemish, believe me, doesn't sound so beautiful [when sung]," explains the rising international star in a new get-to-know-her piece. "Maybe [I'll sing] French one day, but I'm better in English. I grew up with that." [Spinner]

-- Tune into 'The Tonight Show With Jay Leno' on Thursday to catch the Smashing Pumpkins perform the tune 'The Celestials,' a cut from their "album within an album" known as 'Oceania.' Maybe if we get really lucky, Billy Corgan will sit down on the couch for a chat with Jay as well. [RTTNews]

-- New York City politico cabaret troupe the Citizens Band will be donating a portion of proceeds from their forthcoming debut album, 'Grab a Root and Growl,' to the National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics. The sprawling lineup includes fiery-haired model-singer Karen Elson, who is also known as Jack White's ex-wife. [Death + Taxes]
