The Big Pink – “Hit The Ground (Superman) (Forest Swords Remix)”

The Big Pink make the sort of titanic Brit-rock that demands to be used in action-movie trailers. But the duo’s two members have noise-scene roots, which you can hear bleeding through their wall of distortion every so often.

The Big Pink Cover Smashing Pumpkins’ “Mayonaise”

As volume-knob maximalists with tender hearts and thoroughly distorted guitars, the Big Pink are a logical act to be in the Smashing Pumpkins-cover game. Their take Siamese Dream’s “Mayonaise” dots their setlists, though they tidied up and delivered this rendition on a recent performance for BBC1’s Live Lounge (their next record, Future This, is out… More »

The Big Pink – “Stay Gold (Araabmuzik Remix)”

Last month, we posted the video for “Stay Gold,” the latest blearily anthemic single from British duo the Big Pink.

The 10 Best Indie Rock Beyoncé Covers

It’s going to be impossible to claim that Beyoncé Knowles has “quietly” put together a vicious song catalog, stocked with everything from heart-wrenching ballads to shamelessly fun bangers, but she has done it without some of the fanfare associated with other pop stars.

Coachella 2010: Pavement, Thom Yorke, Gorillaz

Friday got us dancing with LCD and Jay-Z, Saturday featured less clothing, and Sunday closed things out with a generally mellower lineup (plus more amazing weather). It was fitting the reunited Pavement played “In The Mouth A Desert.” Because the desert is where people were watching them. Even if it didn’t feel especially arid. Le… More »

The Big Pink Cover Beyoncé

After Solange covered Dirty Projectors, a band on Domino, it’s only fair the Londoners who sing “Dominos” have a go at a song by Knowles’ sister.
