These are new songs but not the first performances ever. And I think this may be the best they've been recorded (I couldn't find them elsewhere online).

March 22, 2011 on Watch Jens Lekman Perform New Songs At Read And Shout
It was mentioned by a few artists! I had to edit all the statements a bit, but I'll add the embed because it's worth including. Here are some words from Jody Stephens on "Blue Moon" and his favorite recording moments: “Blue Moon” and “Night Time” and “Thank You Friends”... there are some great, extraordinary moments. I’ll pick “Blue Moon” because I don’t think I did anything on it. Just a beautiful song. And again, the songs are always what I appreciated. At the time my perspective of listening to it was different, it was just wacky to the point of "How could anybody appreciate this wackiness?" In retrospect, in putting that behind me and just listening to the record and what it is, it’s a pretty brilliant revelation of where Alex was at the time.

I think you're right! It's been a while since I've seen the episode.

March 10, 2011 on The National – “Conversation 16″ Video (Feat. Mad Men’s John Slattery)
It was the American Skins. I thought it was a nice nod to the UK show. Here's a video thing about the Northern Soul dance scene: http://www.mtv.com/videos/misc/615539/behind-the-scenes-northern-soul.jhtml

I'm sure he's been asked to do a ton of TV scoring and theme songs, so maybe if the right AMC/HBO show or episode of Two And A Half Men came along he could get his Emmy that way.

This album is 37:29 long, so it's also the shortest Radiohead LP. For comparison: Pablo Honey - 42:11 The Bends - 48:37 OK Computer - 53:27 Kid A - 49:57 Amnesiac - 43:55 Hail To The Thief - 56:35 In Rainbows - 42:43

You're right! He also wrote the Band-Aids jingle ("I am stuck on Band-Aids.."). So this is also a Barry Manilow cover.

February 14, 2011 on Weezer Cover The State Farm Jingle
According to Promo News: "As Adam confirms, it was 'shot, animated, submitted, rejected, reworked, resubmitted, unintentionally leaked, written up in Rolling Stone and appeared all over, was pulled and shelved for over two years before being worked on and approved finally by Modest Mouse. It was a pretty crazy ride but we’re soooooo proud of this film.'"

I just replaced the stream with a higher quality version, so it should sound close to the download now.

Their "Mother" and "Gin And Juice" commentary are some of my favorites. "Liar" too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBjtghitGOM. I'll add in suggestions!

The early 2010 release date (Jan 26) made it easy to overlook, unfortunately. Great album though.

Even though I listened to Snoop Dogg and Dre and Nirvana growing up, the only warning about music I got from my mom was about Beck's "Loser," which she said was "not a very nice way to think of yourself."

I don't think it's likely either, but it came from a somewhat reliable source so I decided to put it in that column.

January 11, 2011 on Coachella 2011: Let The Rumors Begin
The fake poster has both Jeff Mangum and The Talking Heads, so I think it's more a "dream line-up" than "line-up to fool blogs."

January 11, 2011 on Coachella 2011: Let The Rumors Begin
It turned out Beck lied about Muse's management calling him. From NME (http://www.nme.com/news/nme/47689): "After raving about Muse for four minutes, Glenn made a joke about their representatives emailing him to stop," Balfe said. "While it is entirely possible that Muse does not like having Glenn as a fan, he was making a joke and their representatives never reached out to him." ... "Despite Beck suggesting on several occasions that he believes Muse share his strong libertarian views on western power, the band's spokesperson said they would be making no comment about the issue. "

I fixed the title. For Tokyo Police Club it was "Feat. Luke LaLonde," Warp Records has the reverse. Says Warp: "'First Date Kid' is the new track from Born Ruffians off the "Plinky Plonk EP". The track is a collaboration between Born Ruffians' Luke LaLonde and Tokyo Police Club's David Monks.The EP is available now on tour, and by digital download on November 15th 2010."
