Watch Jenny Lewis In Jimmy Kimmel’s A Very Megadeth Christmas Sketch

Dave Mustaine, especially in his recent Tea-Party-loon phase, does not strike me as someone bursting with humor. So give the Megadeth frontman credit: Last night, he and his band were musical guests on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and they were also game enough to make a fake commercial for their fake Christmas album. Indie siren Jenny… More »

Watch The Postal Service Play The Colbert Report With Jenny Lewis

Back when the Postal Service recorded Give Up a decade ago, Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello weren’t famous enough to warrant TV time, either together or as separate entities. But time and growing cult status have a way of changing things, and the reunited Postal Service made their TV debut on last night’s episode of… More »

The 10 Best Rilo Kiley Songs

Without hearing a single note of their music, at least two members of indie rock band Rilo Kiley should be somewhat recognizable to virtually anyone in the United States who came of age in the ’80s or ’90s.

Download Ben Gibbard & Death Cab For Cutie’s Best Cover Songs

Last month Death Cab For Cutie returned to the spotlight with “You Are A Tourist,” the great first single and video from their forthcoming Codes And Keys. A sunny addition to our spring playlist, it recalls brighter moments of mid-period Cure when it’s not channeling “Float On.” That’s fitting given how Ben Gibbard’s got five… More »

Trent Reznor Wins Golden Globe

Trent Reznor was surprised when he was nominated for the Best Original Score Golden Globe, so he was even more surprised that he and co-writer Atticus Ross actually took the award home last night during the first hour of the show’s live broadcast. Also surprising: he and Ross actually attended the ceremonies — Reznor mentioned… More »

Brandon Flowers – “Hard Enough” (Feat. Jenny Lewis)

We saw him play “Hard Enough” live (without Lewis) at his debut solo show in Las Vegas, though with Lewis on backing vocals it really brings out how much this track sounds like Fleetwood Mac. Listen to this radio rip:… More »

The band has a new streaming player that lets you hear those tracks, plus another new one called “Switchblade.” It’s a slower acoustic song with a great opening line: “It’s been one long year of Saturday nights…”… More »

Jenny & Johnny – “Big Wave”

When Jessica posted “Scissor Runner” by indie AM Gold couple Jenny Lewis and Johnny Rice, she noted we should expect some darker sounds on the forthcoming full-length. (The duo’s mascot is a snake eating its tail, after all). “Big Wave,” for example, tackles credit default swaps, the dark side of Ambien, and said snake (he… More »

Indie Rockers Play Dress-Up For The New York Times

Coachella is already the most fashionable of the summer festivals by virtue of its proximity to Los Angeles, so this year the NYT ran with the glam, taking a bagful of high fashion garments and draping them on a bunch of rock stars for a fun little photo gallery.

New Jenny Lewis Video – “See Fernando”

For someone as videogenic as Jenny, her last videos for “Black Sand” was remarkably blah. We didn’t even post the studio-set clip she made with Elvis Costello for “Carpetbaggers” because it, too, offered little by way of something you should actually take time out of your day to watch. “See Fernando” is the cure though.
