Recorded live in studio in Muscle Shoals, AL during the making of their newest album, Brothers. The Black Keys continue to be one of the coolest rock bands around today. The eery nature of this song, the howling and airy sounds and Auerbach’s voice bring this song into a deep dark corner of your mind.
Fang Island, aptly named, and totally fun have become one of my go to workout ‘pump you up’ bands. Their self titled album is full of exploding jams that make you want to get up and move. Check out their video for Careful Crossers.
She & Him premiered their brand new video for their song Thieves over on Pitchfork.TV. The video filmed in a new film noir style features Zoey and M.Ward as children sending time traveling notes to their future selves.
Who doesn’t want to perform at Amoeba Music these days? The guys(and girl) from fanfarlo swooped into Amoeba to live record another great version of their song Luna from their album, Reservoir. If its an album you don’t already own, you should probably get on it.
There have been some real creative looking videos that I’ve been seeing lately, I love the effect of this one. The contrasty halftone effect is really fun to watch. I hate to single out Jack White on this one, but there is always something cool going on with the videos he is involved in. Either way, this song, and more importantly this album (Sea of Cowards) is great. A lot of fun to listen to, it just totally rocks.

Dirty Laundry Presents: Suckers from Dirty Laundry on Vimeo. Another great interview from dirty laundry; with the band Suckers.
Check out the new video from the Pains of Being Pure at Heart. The track is called say no to love, and the video is really cool, it’s got a mixed media hand drawn animation overlaid upon video. Very Cool.
Another great video of the fantastic Local Natives performing their song Wide Eyes.
