N.A.S.A. and Karen O’s cover of Bob Marley’s “I Shot The Sheriff” first appeared in a Sonos commercial during the Grammys.

Vice & Intel’s Creator’s Project @ MILK Studios, NYC 6/26/10

For 12 hours on Saturday, Vice took over an eight-floor studio in Chelsea. It was Coachella in an art museum, basically. I’m not saying that because building and coding this photo gallery (of shots by Abbey Braden) took as long as one would from a day at a festival (though, it did). It’s for the… More »

DāM-FunK Covers Human League For Dr. Martens’ 50th

Dr. Martens are celebrating their 50th anniversary with a digital ad campaign designed to remind you that rock stars wear Dr. Martens. This didn’t work so well last time around. But this time they’re doing something that directly involves musicians by having 10 (or 9, really) young bands do ten covers of nu-classics. Each cover… More »

Stereogum & team9 Present… MySplice 4: 2009 Mashed Up

There could not have been a more apt ID3 than that of Freelance Hellraiser’s “Stroke Of Genius,” the MP3 that launched this decade’s most fitting musical legacy. Parts of two or three or thirty tracks mixed into one supersong? What better than mashups to soundtrack a generation of smartphone-wielding Adderall chompers coming of age i… More »

New N.A.S.A. (Feat. Sizzla, Amanda Blank & Lykke Li) Video – “A Volta”

The Spirit Of Apollo, N.A.S.A.’s LP featuring a comically overstuffed grab bag of cameo talent, just keeps on turning out the videos. This would be a much more impressive proposition were the videos actually to incorporate the featured artists, but I imagine it was enough of a logistical nightmare just harvesting the audio tracks, and… More »

Coachella 2009: Moz, Macca, Cohen Lead Friday’s Nostalgia Parade

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy
Our trek into Indio went so smoothly this year that we’ve both become paranoid about something going incredibly wrong at any moment, but so far we’ve made it through without broken bones or spirits. In fact, even though the day started with extreme lines and heat, once we passed… More »

New N.A.S.A Video – “Gifted” (Feat. Kanye West, Santigold & Lykke Li)

Squeak E. Clean and DJ Zegon get lonely, so as mentioned, their N.A.S.A. project includes more guests than Disneyland. So far they’ve paraded out M.I.A., Spank Rock, Santigold, and Nick Zinner for “Whachadoin” and “The People Tree” featured David Byrne, Chali 2na, Gift Of Gab & Z-Trip (which beat Department Of Eagles to their MarcelMore »

New N.A.S.A. (Feat. M.I.A., Santogold, Spank Rock & Nick Zinner) – “Whachadoin”

Technically N.A.S.A. (North America/South America) = beatmakers Squeak E. Clean and DJ Zegon, but as you might’ve noticed when we posted The Spirit Of Apollo’s “Gifted” — featuring Kanye West, Santogold, and Lykke Li — the project also includes a shitload of guest vocal spots. See, for example, the names listed after “feat.” in the… More »
