What a day for great videos, huh? In this one, Local Natives’ song “Wide Eyes” gets matched up with a struggle straight out of Shark Week. I tell ya, you just can’t trust those land sharks.
According to Rap-Up.com, the song “Hypnotize” that NERD brought to Letterman was produced by Daft Punk. Two great live groups. Two great sounds. One sweet song.
Well, when I wrote that headline I kinda forgot about “Foreign Features,” but we’ll just slide that in here early to get the omission out of the way. Anyway, a little bit ago Mikey Rocks of the Cool Kids tweeted a link to his new video for “S.S.” Here it and a ripped MP3 are. It’s a little more on the slow/R&B side of the hip hop spectrum — it definitely lacks that Cool Kids punch — but it’s a really smooth song.
The Take Away Show just posted this video of the Morning Benders playing their new song “Virgins” while in France. This is going to come as no surprise to you if you’ve got the Morning Benders’ album Big Echo, but this song is fantastic! Watch it, then download the MP3 below.
MP3: The Morning Benders – Virgins (new song)
So far we’ve only got four Cults songs to enjoy. So unless they want to have the shortest set this side of SXSW, Cults have had to play some as-yet-unreleased material on their recent tour. So far this is the only video footage I’ve seen pop up — let me know if you’ve heard any more.
After not realizing the National/Owen Pallett show was in Louisville last night until I started reading about it on twitter, I decided that it was high time to do a little schedule planning. Step one of that was to compile all the shows I wanted to attend. The result is a fat and happy schedule of fall concerts that you can find here. My immediate suggestions? Deerhoof (free show!), Neon Indian and My Morning Jacket.
When I heard that the Coen Brothers would be adapting the novel “True Grit” (not for the first time), I kept meaning to read it. Then once day I was send across town to pick up a chair my gf picked out on Craigslist and saw that the couple had a copy of True Grit sitting on top of their stack of books for sale. Bingo.
And now we’ve got the trailer, and it looks fantastic. Hailee Steinfeld seems to be a perfect Mattie Ross. If everything falls into place, we might have another No Country For Old Men on our hands.
So far there are only a handful of shows planned for Louisville’s new Yum Center (aka “the Bucket”). There’s My Morning Jacket, the Eagles and Justin Bieber planned for this year and now we’ve got Lady Gaga coming in 2011. However, in true Ticketmaster form, tickets are outraaaageously expensive.
