The 12 Best Videos Of The Week

This week we’ve got a lot of new videos– clips from Wale, Toro Y Moi, the New Pornographers, Damian Marley and Nas, the Black Keys, and Modest Mouse, among others. The Tyler, The Creator video is the darkest and hardest to shake of this lot. But once that’s out of the way, many of thi… More »

Vampire Weekend & The Black Keys Hit Colbert For A “Sell-Out-Off”

Last night’s Report featured Stephen’s analysis of the Grammys (he’s a voting member of NARAS since he won a gramophone last year). It centered mostly on the Best Alternative Album category, which served as a good setup — and netted a couple of Colbert one-liners on Arcade Fire, Band Of Horses, and Broken Bells –… More »

Austin City Limits 2010 In Photos

Austin City Limits hosted some of the nicest weather in years alongside an impressive line up with main headliners The Strokes, Muse and the Eagles. Some tough scheduling choices though needed to be made like choosing Sonic Youth or Vampire Weekend, Broken Bells or Silversun Pickups, Band Of Horses or the Flaming Lips, and Muse… More »

The Week In Ad Rock: White Stripes, Black Keys, & D.O.A. Cover Cold War Kids

The White Stripes’s “Hello Operator” showed up in a new Converse commercial featuring Dr. J and Jim Jones, among many others. Converse is one of those brands that artists can be associated with, without losing credibility, though in general it doesn’t come up as much as it used to. Fun commercial, too:… More »

Lollapalooza 2010 Friday: Lady Gaga And The Strokes, So Far Away Yet … Yeah, So Far Away

As much as Lolla’s undercard is varied, and vast, it’s a headliner’s ball this year. Because this deep into the festival season we’ve seen nearly all of these bands plenty, and because Lolla has created some discourse-owning 8PM show-downs. Night one’s was a study in contrasts: Lady Gaga, or the Strokes? We caught both, two… More »

Stream Twilight: Eclipse Soundtrack

You heard Vampire Weekend’s “Jonathan Low” (one of VW’s top three songs about vampires) and before that Muse’s “Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)” (inescapable at vampire proms this month). Now you can check out Beck & Bat For Lashes’ much anticipated collab… More »

The Black Keys “Tighten Up” On Letterman

Our first taste of “Tighten Up” came courtesy of Frank the dinosaur. Then the Akron guys had it out at it the playground. Last night the Black Keys did the Brothers track again, this time on Letterman sans Frank, fisticuffs, and Danger Mouse’s production. Dave’s enthusiastic thoughts? “Don’t kid yourself. This kid can whistle. Ya… More »

The Black Keys – “Tighten Up” Video

It’s good (and lucrative) to be the Black Keys: Their mostly self-produced album Brothers came out yesterday, last week they joined Vampire Weekend and Beck & Bat For Lashes on the new Twilight soundtrack, and last Friday they played an open-bar Microsoft KIN secret show where their headshots and things like “The Black Keys Are… More »

The Black Keys @ Classic Car Club, NYC 5/15/10

With the release of Brothers this week and their recently announced track “Chop And Change” showing up on the Twilight: Eclipse soundtrack, the Black Keys have been around a lot as of late. Add to all of that a free show at Classic Car Club this Saturday. It was first come first serve and had… More »

Twilight: Eclipse Soundtrack Nabs Vampire Weekend, Beck, Bat For Lashes

After Thom Yorke, Bon Iver & St. Vincent, and Grizzly Bear & Beach House made soundtracks to multi-million dollar hormonal-teenage-vampires-in-love franchises a safe place for indie artists to premiere their wares, you had to figure more folks from Stereogum’s tag cloud would lineup at the chance to lure Bella & Edward heads from the land… More »

The Black Keys – “Next Girl” Video

Frank, the new t-rex puppet mascot for The Black Keys’ upcoming album Brother, is the star of this unofficial (but really, official) video for “Next Girl.” Just like the last time he lipsynced on behalf of the band, there’s a scrolling series of warnings and minutiae at the bottom of the screen. At the to… More »

The Black Keys – “Tighten Up” & “Next Girl”

In this Black Keys promo clip, a soulful dinosaur puppet named Frank sings “Tighten Up,” the bluesy Danger Mouse-produced track from the duo’s otherwise self-produced sixth album Brothers. If you don’t like the song, entertain yourself with the running dialogue at the bottom of the screen. (It’s written in the same font as the word… More »

SXSW 2010: The Wrap Up

We saw a bunch of bands this past week. Not every set was memorable, but there were more than enough highlights to make the stiff necks and barking feet worth it. Here’s Wednesday, Thursday, Gibbarday, and SXSW’s metal shows, and more. This last post contains our notes, and photos from our intrepid photographers — RyanMore »

New Drummer Video – “Feel Good Together”

The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney teamed up with four other drummers to create Drummer, a band of drummers, with only one drummer. Which means the other guys (Jamie Stillman, Jon Finley, Steve Clements) are out of their comfort zone, except for Greg Boyd, who gets to stay behind the kit. (Carney’s a bassist here.) Despite… More »

Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Rock

We’ve seen indie rockers reach out to hip-hop’s most recognizable collective (or at least the most recognizable hip-hop collective to indie rockers). But lately, it’s been Wu-Tang Clan making the moves. This week Judgment Night 2009 is in full force, with genres meshing again and RZA, GZA, and company at the heart of it. More »

New Blakroc – “Ain’t Nothing Like You (Hoochie Coo)”

The Black Keys recruited quite a crew for their Damon Dash-spearheaded hip-hop project Blakroc. Mos Def, Q-Tip, RZA, Jim Jones, Raekwon, Ludacris, and the ghost of ODB all appear. Hear a cut and look for the LP 11/27 AKA Black Friday. More »

All Points West Wet 2009 In Photos

When APW presented its inaugural festival last year, we weren’t alone in taking issue with the experience: lack of food options, a fair but generally recycled undercard which played more like “a bunch of bands opening for Radiohead,” an extremely restricted/overpriced drink situation designed to keep people sober and make them feel uncomfortable by boozing… More »

Black Keys Drummer Has New Band Called Drummer

Dan Auerbach opted to use his given name for his solo project, but his Black Keys partner Patrick Carney’s taking a a shadowier route, titling his new band after his role in the Akron duo. Even though he’s Drummer’s bassist. The hook? Everyone in the Ohio “feel good” quintet is also a drummer, it’s just… More »

New Dan Auerbach Video – “Heartbroken, In Disrepair”

Not done with the Black Key’s solo LP? Neither is he. Dan Auerbach’s run on the back of Keep It Hid’s been strong, netting a slot on Conan and one at Lollapalooza, and now this clip for the gritty stomp of “Heartbroken, In Disrepair.” The video’s ultimately uneventful — just Dan backed by his touring… More »
