It’s Friday. Let’s watch some Freddy and the Four Gone Conclusions videos!
YouTube: Heavy Trash – “Way Out” You’ve gotta love Jon Spencer. And astronauts.
Yahoo! Music: Rivers Cuomo – “Blast Off!” Great ‘stache, homie!
MP3: Super Furry Animals – “The Gift That Keeps Giving” an outtake from Hey Venus. And starting on December 17, the band will count down to the New Year with “daily SFA offerings and exclusives” on their website. Video:
YouTube: The White Stripes – “Conquest” From Icky Thump. The video is muy bueno. But I prefer the Patti Page version of the song… Via Detour.
Video: Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings – “Amazing Grace” and “How Long do I Have to Wait for You?” (Live in France) Also: Spin has some great live photos of Ms. Jones. Happy Thanksgiving, y’all. Try to be nice to your families.
YouTube: Arctic Monkeys – “Teddy Picker” Directed by Roman Coppola, from Favourite Worst Nightmare, out now. MP3: Arctic Monkeys – “Red Light Indicates Doors Are Secured” (live) (courtesy of Domino Records)
Someone has been listening to Herbie Hancock, and it’s not just the song title that this ditty shares with the 80s hit. Gorillas – Rockit
YouTube: Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings – “100 Days, 100 Nights” “The video was directed by Adam Elias Buncher using two vintage TV cameras bought on E-Bay for $50 dollars each. Shows how much you can do with just a little soul!” From 100 Days, 100 Nights (review), out now on Daptone Records.
This dude can’t miss, especially when he hooks up with the plucky Allen. A big fat beat, “Superstition”-style keyboards, and some killer horns. Get your shit down! Mark Ronson featuring Lily Allen – “Oh My God”
