Depeche Mode Bring The Old And The New To Kimmel

I’ve spoken to quite a few people who are stoked to see Depeche Mode live on their Sounds Of The Universe-supporting Tour Of The Universe. Last night the guys offered a taste of what to expect at Lollapalooza, etc., though hopefully the sound’s better at Lollapalooza, etc. At certain points you can barely hear Dave… More »

New M83 Video – “We Own The Sky”

Call it fansourcing, call it laziness, but the “make our music video!” press releases that flood Stereogum’s inbox make me yearn for the days of “Scream.” Of course labels have no money and MTV/VH1 only programs videos for insomniacs, so I empathize with artists forced to support homemade garbage. But sometimes inspiration strikes and everybodyMore »

Depeche Mode, Beastie Boys, Jane’s Addiction Headlining Lollapalooza 2009

The Chicago Tribune has confirmed Lolla’s big three anchors at the fest going down August 7-9 in Chicago’s Grant Park. If only it was 1990 this year. (UPDATE: Kings Of Leon, too.)… More »

New Depeche Mode – “Come Back”

“Come Back” isn’t as immediately compelling (or accusatory) as our first taste of Sounds Of The Universe, but the drifting, downcast song offers a nice contrast to “Wrong“‘s throttled industrial-line angst. What we have here is the band in a more sensitive Mode: Not quite on the same part of the sensitivity meter as “Somebody,”… More »

New Depeche Mode Video – “Wrong”

Depeche Mode unveiled this anxious and angsty track over the weekend at Germany’s Echo Awards, and their internet-press savvy is on display with its official video: released within the week for web embedding, directed by the indie-band friendly string-puller Patrick Daughters. The clip is fairly evil and memorable — a poor schlub finds himself a… More »

Depeche Mode Debut “Wrong” At Echo Awards

Last year we saw David Gahan solo and then this past January with frYars, but he’s always made most sense fronting Depeche Mode, which is where you’ll find him in this clip. The band’s 12th studio album Sounds Of The Universe, the first since 2005’s Playing The Angel, is out in April, and DM debuted… More »

New frYars Video (Feat. Dave Gahan) – “Visitors”

Young UK BTW frYars, aka 19-year-old Ben Garrett, aka the man with the olive eyes, has a new pull-out-the-visual-stops-’80s-style video for “Visitors,” a song featuring Dave Gahan on backing vocals. The Depeche Mode man also makes a dark, venetian blinded appearance in the clip. The song’s the first single from frYars’ forthcoming Dark Young Hearts,… More »

New Dave Gahan Video – “Saw Something”

Readers found themselves in a Depeche mode for Dave Gahan’s ominous, flickering “Kingdom” video and “Digitalism” instrumental, calling the material some of his best work in years. Well, here we are with the darkly balladic, slightly echoing anthem “Saw Something” and its soporific peephole video. It opens with shuteye Gahan awaking to watch the world’… More »

New Dave Gahan Video – “Kingdom” (And Digitalism Instrumental Remix)

We’ve definitely been in a Depeche mode lately: First Hillary Duff appropriated ‘em, then Division Day covered ‘em, and now DM frontman Dave Gahan’s back with his second solo album Hourglass. First single “Kingdom” has a skittering, ominous ‘n’ pulsing electro feel with a mysterious, completely apropos flash-lit parking garage video that reminds us both… More »

Division Day Cover Depeche Mode

Since we’ve been in a Depeche sorta mode thanks to Hilary’s (military) fatigued karaoke act, thought it’d be nice to round out the Gahan love with something more palatable. And just like that, out pops Division Day’s take on “Enjoy The Silence,” a continuation of DD’s cover-full celebration of the Beartrap Island re-release. Last time… More »

Hilary Duff Appropriates Depeche Mode On New Single “Reach Out”

And guess which Depeche tune she uses? Granted and given, pop tarts ‘n’ P. Diddy get our attention for a second when they raid and repurpose nearly entire ’80s ditties toward their own, nefarious ends … but not in a good way. Where does it all stop? Not with Hilary Duff. These days find Hil… More »
