Satriani Sues Coldplay

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 yourself and has apperently stoked the anger of Coldplay fans. Yes, they get angry when they’re not shopping at World Market.

New Jay Reatard video: See/Saw

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.

Jeff Mangum and Julian Koster Play Engine

Video: Jeff Mangum/Julian Koster – “Engine” (live in Columbus, October 19, 2008)

Neutral Milk Hotel alumni Jeff Mangum and Jullian Koster have performed “Engine” at the most recent dates on the Elephant 6 Holiday Surprise Tour.

The first time they pulled out this ten-year-old b-side was in Pittsburgh (video after the jump…), and in some ways it’s refreshing that the irreverent crowd didn’t shut the fuck up while Mangum played his first live Neutral Milk Hotel song since a one-off show in New Zealand in 2001 (flyer, setlist).

New MGMT Video: The Youth

Video: MGMT – “The Youth” (71MB MOV)

Directed by Eric Wareheim. From Oracular Spectacular.

It’s not as mind-blowing as “Time To Pretend” (MP3) or quirky as “Electric Feel”, but it’s got some spooky kids in it, so there’s that.

Steamy new Britney video

Video: Britney Spears – “Womanizer” (uncensored)

Britney Spears - Womanizer (Director's Cut)


Scenes in the video feature Britney lounging, nude, in a sauna, while her boyfriend showers. The ABC version of the clip obscures her body with digitally added steam; the MTV version does not. Obviously there are no explicit shots in the video, but MTV’s is certainly more provocative.


Update: Replaced old MTV video embed with YouTube, July 27, 2015 -ed.
