Lana Del Rey – “Ride (UNKLE Remix)”

Ride,” Lana Del Rey’s stately new Rick Rubin-produced ballad, is the best song we’ve heard from LDR in quite some time. And now UNKLE, James Lavelle’s surviving trip-hop project, has turned it into an eight-minute downtempo ripple, which you can hear below. More »

Stream Grinderman’s Grinderman 2 RMX

Grinderman’s remix LP Grinderman 2 RMX came out last month, and from that release we’ve already scoped Nick Zinner’s remix of “Bellringer Blues” as well as Silver Alert’s remix of “Evil” that features the National’s Matt Berninger. Now, we’ve got the whole set, which includes remixes by UNKLE, Josh Homme and A Place To Bury… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

My two favorite music videos this week were slow, lyrical depictions of combat sports full of squalid shots of slovenly audience members and slow-motion images of gladiators at work. So, a note to music-video directors: Make more slow, lyrical depictions of combat sports. It’s always awesome. Click below for this week’s list. More »

UNKLE – “Another Night Out” (Feat. Mark Lanegan) Video

Though it’s been a while since the LP that “Another Night Out” was featured on came out, that didn’t stop UK production duo UNKLE from putting out a dramatic black-and-white clip almost two years after the fact. While it’s a bit odd for UNKLE’s interests, the release is actually timed rather nicely for its featured… More »

Thom Yorke DJs Occupy London

Last night, Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, UNKLE’s Tim Goldsworthy and Massive Attack’s 3D DJed a party benefiting the worldwide Occupy movement in the basement of an abandoned UBS, where a group of protesters have taken up an occupation. The set was rumored to be recorded and eventually posted to Occupation Record’s website; in the meantime, check… More »

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – “Let The Lord Shine A Light On Me (UNKLE Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

Noel Gallagher’s latest project has rustled up a whole lotta action around these parts, as the Oasis founder’s new outfit has released a non-stop barrage of material in the past couple of months, including a handful of MP3s and videos. Now, here’s a remix of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds track “Let The Lord Shine… More »

The 7 Best Videos Of The Week

We’ve got new videos from Rihanna, UNKLE, The Grates, and WU LYF this week. I especially like the Ford & Lopatin video because it’s the human version of those Friskies ads. The ones where the cat hallucinates and believes that turkeys, fish, and other edibles worship cats like gods? They’d make really good Animal Collective… More »

80 Other Bands With Official Sneakers

Last week the Animal Collective bros released an official mixtape for their new … sneakers. That is a thing now. Gotta keep fans on their toes (ouch, sorry). The shoes which you can see here benefit the Socorro island Conservation Fund, and they are cruelty free, except to your eyes.

I did some… More »

Nick Cave & UNKLE – “Money And Run”

James Lavelle’s longtime project UNKLE teamed up with a few different vocalists for an upcoming five-song EP, Only The Lonely. Nick Cave handles the mic on the raucous opener “Money And Run.” As with most things Cave touches, he owns it. More »

The 12 Most NSFW Videos Of 2010

A couple of Best Videos Of The Week ago I mentioned how nearly every good clip that week was too long, too nude, or too violent to make it on to MTV; one was even removed from YouTube, verification wall or not. But looking back on 2009’s picks, it’s easy to notice that this year’… 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 »

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 »

UNKLE – “Follow Me Down” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

UNKLE’s fourth album Where Did The Night Fall is out today. We’ve given you listen to a couple of songs from the collection, both with different guest vocalists. For the third track, we get another: This time It’s San Francisco psych crew Sleepy Sun, though in “Follow Me Down”‘s artfully NSFW video, it’s likely super… More »

UNKLE – “Caged Bird” (Feat. Katrina Ford) (Stereogum Premiere)

The chiming, upbeat psychedelia of “Natural Selection,” UNKLE’s collaboration with onetime BTW Black Angels, contrasts with “Caged Bird,” an especially sinister Where Did The Night Fall track. Celebration’s Katrina Ford ably handles the vocals. A couple of weeks ago we heard her crooning with Future Islands on downcast synth ballad “In The Fall.” There are… More »

UNKLE – “Natural Selection” (Feat. The Black Angels)

When last we checked in with James Lavelle & Co., part of that Co. was Josh Homme. Not a surprise: Since UNKLE’s inception in 1994, the band’s featured any number of guests. It’s built into the framework. The upcoming Where Did The Night Fall is no exception: Mark Lanegan, Celebration’s Katrina Ford, Sleepy Sun, Autolux,… More »

New UNKLE – “Chemical” (Featuring Josh Homme)

It’s been a while since UNKLE asked us to hold hands, but James Lavelle & Co. are back with “Chemical,” a collaboration with Josh Homme, who you may last remember berating a pre-teen in Norway (and later reminding us he’s not a homophobe, just a misunderstood macho guy with rage issues). The song Uncle Josh… More »

Stereogum Does CMJ: UNKLE @ Webster Hall, NYC 10/18/07

Everyone walking in to Webster to see James Lavelle and UNKLE had to be a little curious about the “very special guest vocalists.” This is, after all, a band that’s pulled in LP cameos from Thom Yorke, Richard Ashcroft, Josh Homme … but the show at Webster really only provided one big name:… More »

New UNKLE Video – “Hold My Hand”

The second video from UNKLE’s third album War Stories spins a claustro, soft-focused tale of creepy, stairwell-to-sidewalk dragging obsession. James Lavelle vocalizes about need and hand holding, being led/leading over a creepy trash-groove until the guitars stretch their legs and you realize the kids just needed to get the hell out of the city awhile.
