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.

Guitar phenom Joe Satriani is suing Coldplay claiming the band’s single “Viva La Vida” ripped off his 2004 song “If I Could Fly.” This sort of thing happens a lot, especially if the defendant is a mega-selling powerhouse, but the similarities are compelling. A crafty Youtuber has combined the songs for you to hear for … Continue reading Satriani Sues Coldplay
Video: Jay Reatard – “See/Saw” From Matador Singles ’08, which is a really good collection of poppy lo-fi messy garage punk songs. The fact that he comes from Memphis makes sense. I hadn’t heard anything by him before this album, but now I’m pissed I missed seeing him this summer. MP3: Jay Reatard – “See/Saw” … Continue reading New Jay Reatard video: See/Saw
