Among The Current's listeners who submitted a rating for The Jayhawks' "Paging Mr. Proust," 90 percent gave it five out of five stars. Read Bill DeVille's review and listen to tracks from "Paging Mr. Proust," our Album of the Week.
The Jayhawks' new album features the band's signature sunny melodies and their trademark harmonies, but it also breaks new ground by adventuring into new sounds. With 'Paging Mr. Proust,' the Jayhawks look to the future without forgetting their past.

Happy birthday to Bob Dylan! The singer-songwriter — born on this day in Duluth, Minn., and raised in Hibbing, Minn., before moving to Minneapolis and eventually, the world — turns 75 today. Starting just after midnight, we're playing one Bob Dylan song per hour, all day long. Stay tuned to The Current to join the celebration. http://thecurrent.org/listen

Listen Thursday at 5 p.m. to hear Charles Bradley and the Extraordinaires as they perform in our studio ahead of their First Avenue & 7th St Entry show tonight (tickets are still available).
Soul singer Charles Bradley sings not only from his heart, but from his entire being. Bradley, together with his band the Extraordinaires, bring their soulful tunes into The Current's studio for a session hosted by Mac Wilson. 'Music is what's keeping the world together today,' Bradley says. 'We've got to make it right all over the land.'

The musical guest on Conan O'Brien Presents: Team Coco is Declan McKenna. Wonder if he'll be playing this Fender Telecaster, which he told us about when he visited us back in March.

Hours in the studio. Hours in makeup. More than 20,000 still photos. This is just part of the story about the making of Lucius's amazing new video for their song, "Gone Insane." Go behind the scenes:
The visually twisted video for the Lucius song 'Gone Insane' took more than 20,000 photos and a week to shoot. Read more about the process and watch a video about the making of the 'Gone Insane' video.

Singer-songwriter Adia Victoria pulls no punches when writing and performing her songs about the South. "I think that I sing now with more conviction," she says. "I feel more sure now about my words." Read and listen to more about Adia Victoria's approach to her music:
The singer and songwriter grew up under difficult circumstances in South Carolina. Today she uses her music, and the legacy of Southern black women's music, to come to terms with the past and present.
