Watch The Both Bring The Hooks To Seth Meyers

The Both, the still-fresh duo of Aimee Mann and Ted Leo, released a pretty great self-titled album of spirited, assured power-pop earlier this year. And every time they show up on late-night TV or drop a new music video, it’s a reminder of how sharp and polished a hook-machine these two are, both together and… More »

Watch Aimee Mann & Ted Leo Play A Medley Of TV Theme Songs

Aimee Mann and Ted Leo are individually great, funny, intelligent musicians, and their myriad charms are multiplied exponentially when they’re performing together as the Both. I kinda feel like some TV exec of reasonable vision should work with them on a sketch/variety/talk show or something, because it’d be a really good show, and it would… More »

Hear Tegan And Sara, Carrie Brownstein, Katie Crutchfield, Dee Dee Penny, And More Sing A Feminist Theme For Rookie

Over the past few years, Rookie has become a pillar of feminist discussion on the internet so it makes sense they would be the ones to create a “feminist ‘We Are The World'” anthem to start off the new year. The zine recruited some of indie’s biggest stars to contribute vocals to “Go Forth, Feminist… More »

The Both – “Milwaukee”

We learned a while ago that old friends and past tourmates Aimee Mann and Ted Leo had teamed up to form a new duo called the Both, but so far, all we’ve seen from them is an online sketch with SNL’s Vanessa Bayer. So it’s great to hear that the duo has a new self-titled… More »

Watch Ben Gibbard, Ted Leo, Aimee Mann & Jon Wurster Play Colbert

Last night, Ben “Bucket Of Laughs” Gibbard served as the latest in a long line of musicians to sit for interviews with Stephen Colbert, and the interview went as awkwardly as they usually do. Two thirds of the way in, there’s an extended joke about how utterly uninteresting a human being Gibbard is. He ha… More »

Aimee Mann – “Labrador” Video (Feat. Jon Hamm & Jon Wurster)

Last month, Tom Scharpling directed Aimee Mann’s “Charmer” video, with Laura Linney as a robotic Aimee Mann doppelganger. That was great. This, somehow, is even better: Jon Hamm, actually playing Tom Scharpling as an oily huckster video director, proposing a shot-for-shot remake of the music video that made Mann famous: ‘Til Tuesday’s early-MTV classic “VoicesMore »

Watch Ted Leo Play A Really Awesome Chris Gethard Show

The comedian Chris Gethard, most recently known around these parts as an illiterate, felonious Real Estate street teamer, hosts an absurd and delightful variety show called The Chris Gethard Show. Most recently, TCGS spiked its “absurd and delightful” quotient with a battery of unreasonably funny humans including Joe Mande, Jeff Rubin, Kay Cannon, Grizz Chapman,… More »
