Elvis Costello’s Momofuku Is All About Cup O’ Soup, Jenny Lewis

A ways back we mentioned Elvis Costello was releasing his new album Momofuku as a vinyl LP and that a unique "digital download code" comes with the package. Turns out, a couple weeks later, there'll also be a CD. Now, in a bountiful update rightfully titled "ABSO-MOMOFUKU-LY" at his website, Mr. Costello lets u… More »

Elvis Costello’s Momofuku Coming, But Not On CD

Add Elvis C. to the list of artists with an unusual release angle in this ever turbulent music industry (Lefsetz, weigh in!).

House Soundtrack Features Elvis Covering Christina, Makes Us Collect “Teardrop”s

A few years ago, Hugh Laurie set aside his Steven Fry-collaborating comic past and his British accent to take over FOX (and the Golden Globes) with his portrayal of Dr. House (although he is better remembered around here for calling us "sweet cheeks"). On top of his debonair charm, Hugh's got a good… More »

Eight Little Boxes

We stopped watching Weeds after a few episodes this season. It just got too silly. But, Showtime's high comedy does deliver a cool, new version of Malvina Reynolds's theme every week. The season kicked off with Elvis Costello's funky, acoustic take. Since then, some of our favorite artists have taken liberties with the folk tune'… More »

Elvis & Billie Joe Perform “Good Riddance”

It's amazing, but not surprising, how Elvis Costello can make any song ten times cooler. Here he is with performing with Billie Joe Armstrong at VH1's Decades Rock Live. Dig those harmonies! I wish I had full clips of "Accidents Will Happen" and "Kinder Murder" (with Ben Gibbard and Nick Harmer) to share instead, but… More »

Elvis Costello & Billie Joe Perform “Alison”

Cool clip (ok, half cool) from the Decades Rock Live tribute to Elvis Costello airing Friday on VH1 Classic. Rolling Stone notes: Billie Joe is the nervous one in leather and eyeliner whisper/singing like he's at a high school talent show and Costello is the badass in shades belting it out like he'… More »

Death Cab, Fiona, Billie Joe Serenade Elvis Costello

The Philadelphia Inquirer reviews VH1 Classic's "Decades Rock Live" tribute to Elvis Costello, taped Friday at the "half-full, lousy-sounding Mark G. Etess Arena" in Atlantic City.

“We Had A Horrible Winter At The Monastery Because Of Your Heating System”

Only David Chase can make a ten year old Moby song relevant. Sopranos caught my attention as a purveyor of novel soundtrack songs when I heard Elvis Costello's "Complicated Shadows" a few seasons back. Unlike The O.C. or your favorite future CW dramedy, the tunes are chosen with the plot in mind, not to… More »

New Team 9 Mashups

Bob Dylan's "Blowin' In The Wind" VS Air's "Mike Mills" > Team 9 - "Mike's Blowin' In The Wind" A little creepy, but worth a listen. The Cure's "Lovesong" VS The Beatles' "Taxman" > Team 9 - "Lovetax" A decent mix ... honestly, I'll listen to any Cure boot. Elvis Costello'… More »
