In this week’s Pay to Slum, JTL warns us about a new production trend taking over the charts. Beware.
Video: The Dead Weather – “Treat Me Like Your Mother” Directed by Jonathan Glaze, featuring Jack White and Alison Mosshart playing with guns in an abandoned lot in a dusty suburban subdivision. Good thing they’re zombies (which would explain the paleness, I suppose), or something… The Dead Weather: iTunes, Amazon, Insound, wiki.
Video: Shelley Short – “Time Machine / Submarine” We first encountered Shelley Short when she, along with GLONO‘s own Quasar Wut-Wut, opened up for Colin Meloy of the Decemberists at Schubas a few years ago. Our pal Andy Rader even played upright bass with her for a while. Her stuff is always worth hearing, so … Continue reading Shelley Short – Time Machine / Submarine
Video: ‘It Might Get Loud’ Trailer When I first heard about this movie, I thought it sounded cheesy as shit. But this trailer looks really cool.

Jack White, Jimmy Page, and the Edge

Like the writer at Gizmodo, I don’t actually care much about Rock Band but the intro to the game that sums up the band’s career in a little over two and a half minutes is dope. As trippy as it should be… The Beatles Rock Band Intro Previously: “The Beatles: Rock Band” Due in September … Continue reading Beatles Rock Band Intro
The lengths some bands will go to in order to stand out…ENTER: Attack Attack and their awfully hilarious video for “Stick Stickly.” This is apparently the band’s attempt to carve out a brand new sub-genre for themselves; a little something called “Crabcore.” And I have to give them (or their web savvy fans) props for … Continue reading Video: Attack Attack! – "Stick Stickly"
Video: Animal Collective – “Summertime Clothes” Animal Collective‘s new video for “Summertime Clothes” features the same freaky dancers that scared David Letterman last month. Directed by Danny Perez. Animal Collective: iTunes, Amazon, Insound, wiki.
