“Chinese Translation” (Live On KCRW) (Video)

    M. Ward may have a new album to promote in the shape of A Wasteland Companion, but his recent session for KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic is being promoted by the Post-War cut “Chinese Translation.” Ward’s Merge bosses can rest easy—he’s already out there giving the new album a push on Conan O’Brien’s show. But here a small (and lucky) audience at Apogee’s Berkeley Street Studio gets to witness the singer and his band perform one of the best songs in his catalog in a you-can-see-the-hairs-in-his-nostrils kind of style. Check it out below, and head over here to stream the entire Morning Becomes Eclectic session. [via AHIAS]
