Video: Oasis – “Falling Down” A Noel Gallagher song from Dig Out Your Soul (review), out now on Warner Bros. Seems crazy to me that bands are still getting money for high-production videos like this. Good for them! Oasis: web, myspace, wiki.
We love Wilco but miss the days when they were fun and loose and crazy. We especially miss Jay Bennett and his contribution to what was arguably the best band in America at the time. Here are 21 reasons why Wilco should bring him back.
Video: Ben Kweller – “Fight” From Changing Horses, out February 3 on ATO. His publicist calls this “a full-blown, straight-up country affair” but it’s clear that Kweller’s been listening to the Flying Burrito Brothers with the mix of country, gospel, soul, and rock and roll. This is full-blown, straight-up Cosmic American Music. I’m happy to … Continue reading New Ben Kweller video – Fight
GLONO’s Upright Standing Man of the Year 2006 Stephen Colbert leads the best interview of Paul McCartney I’ve seen in ages. Once again, the man proves to be a treasure.

Video: Animal Collective – “My Girls” Produced by Knowmore Productions, animated by Jon Vermilyea, edited/VFX by Chad Von Nau. From Merriweather Post Pavilion (vinyl), out now on Domino. So this is what all the fuss is about? Okay, it’s a nice psychedelic pop song with a great hook. It sounds great, especially the drums. The … Continue reading New Animal Collective video: My Girls
Video: Neil Young – “Fork in the Road” Gotta love Neil, webcam stizz. Chomping on an Apple, scoffing at his earbuds. Old coot! The chorus is typical Neil: “There’s a bailout coming but it’s not for you.” But he gets even more specific with a verse in the middle: I’m a big rock star My … Continue reading New Neil Young – Fork in the Road
Video: Morrissey – “I’m Throwing My Arms Around Paris” Classic Morrissey. Pugg rock! And the grey in his hair suits him. Then again, he’s always looked like a middle-aged man even back in his twenties. From Years of Refusal, out February 17 on Lost Highway.
Video: Adam Buxton – “Help the Police” I literally have tears in my eyes from laughing out loud. I can’t believe it’s been online since 2007 and nobody I know has sent it to me before. It’s so perfect, I can hardly believe it. I used to think I was a clever N.W.A. fan for … Continue reading NWA – "Help" tha Police
I sometimes obsess over bands. Two of my heaviest obsessions were focused on The Smiths and Wilco. So, if I had been in the audience when Johnny Marr joined the members of Wilco, Liam Finn, and Radiohead‘s Ed O’Brien and Phil Selway on a cover of “Fake Plastic Trees” I may have pissed my pants … Continue reading Johnny Marr Joins Wilco for Radiohead Cover
No idea what the name of this song is because the site is in some crazy for’n language, but the video is pretty cool. Plus, they say the F word. Toughening up their image, apparently. Video: Peter, Björn & John Peter Bjorn and John: Web, MySpace, Wiki.
