Music video by Band of Horses performing Blue Beard. Directed by Christopher Wilson. (c) 2010 Huger Lewis and the Dudes Inc. It took me a while but I’m just now after about 8 or 9 listens through their album Infinite Arms has finally grown on me. Its a wonderfully beautiful rock album and definitely one you should own.

Vetiver & Fruit Bats from Yours Truly on Vimeo. Bobby Charles “I Must Be In A Good Place Now” – This song is absolutely gorgeous, really just a beautiful song, and wonderfully played.
Pop Synth band The Pass, out of Kentucky, are setting up a release to their upcoming album Burst with this video. Premiered on Pretty Much Amazing the song ‘Treatment of the Sun’ kind of sounds like Empire of the Sun. It’s highly catchy, danceable, and the video is a lot of fun. The Pass – “Treatment of the Sun” PMA Premiere from Pretty Much Amazing
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.
