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 »

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 »

Dan Auerbach Brings “My Last Mistake” To Conan

The Black Key man returned to the Late Night studio last week. He was down a Patrick Carney, up a bunch of guys who are not Patrick Carney. “My Last Mistake,” from Auerbach’s solo LP Keep It Hid, sees Dan how he is in real life, outside the Black Keys’ raw and minimalist garage blue… More »

New Dan Auerbach (Black Keys) Live Video – “Trouble Weighs A Ton”

When we posted “I Want Some More” from Black Keys vocalist/guitarist Dan Auerbach’s forthcoming solo debut Keep It Hid, we mentioned he performs most of it by his lonesome (drums, guitar, percussion, and keyboards minus the occasional guest like his uncle James Quine. This video of the two performing “Trouble Weighs A Ton” is one… More »

New Dan Auerbach (Black Keys) – “I Want Some More” (Stereogum Premiere)

Black Keys vocalist/guitarist Dan Auerbach shows up sans Patrick Carney for his solo debut Keep It Hid. It’s wasn’t too long ago that the duo themselves released their fifth album, Attack & Release Release; in fact, Auerbach wrote a bunch of these new songs while on the road in support of it. Auerbach produced the… More »

The Black Keys Find Late Night With Conan O’Brien To Be “Strange Times”

Late-show-performance post title puns can be hard work, but together we can continue to make it happen. Last time the Black Keys told Letterman “I Got Mine,” but this time it’s all about the “Strange Times,” clocking in at twice the tempo and with some fiery riffage. Again, what’s most interesting about these late night… More »
