Austrian Death Machine “Get to the Choppa”

26th May 11 (Thu) Leave a comment

With Arnold Schwarzenegger being all over the news lately… well, here’s a video of a death metal band with robot guitar solos in an homage to the Austrian former-bodybuilder’s role in Predator!

Seriously… robot guitar solos!!!!!

It’s from Austrian Death Machine’s 2007 album Total Brutal (on Metal Blade).

Incubus “Adolescents” video

28th Apr 11 (Thu) Leave a comment

Incubus’ new one isn’t “thinking outside the envelope” or “pushing the box,” as it were… but it’s a good song… check the video for “Adolescents” here:

The vibe to “Adolescent” is (to me) similar to Morning View.  I’m digging the slowed down video part (3:30-ish).

The new album – If Not Now, When? – comes out July 12th.  You can pre-order it now.

Thom Yorke Smashes Dead Fish on Washer-Dryer

1st Mar 11 (Tue) Leave a comment

I could watch this on loop forever.  Radiohead‘s Thom Yorke smashing a dead fish on washer-dryer, playing tennis, gettin’ slapped around… parody edit from the “Lotus Flower” video…

I could do without the fart sounds… kinda of takes away from the humor of the piece, IMO.

Watch the original video HERE.  Find out about Radiohead‘s new The King of Limbs album HERE.  Find more Thom Yorke crazy dancing memes on YouTube (Beyonce’s “All the Single Ladies” and more)

Radiohead *out now* and “Lotus Flower” video

18th Feb 11 (Fri) 1 comment

So, the new Radiohead album The King of Limbs is out now (not tomorrow).  They put it on their download servers early… so, if you bought it, go get it.  If you didn’t, go buy it and get it!  http://www.thekingoflimbs.com/

They also put out the video for “Lotus Flower


Produced and Directed by Garth Jennings
Choreographed by Wayne McGregor
Director of Photography- Nick Wood
Editor- Leila Sarraf

The video features Thom Yorke as an “old man dancing”… :)  The choreographer is a genius.  Not because of his output… but because he was able to earn some income for services rendered to Radiohead.  I mean, isn’t that style just called “Thom Yorke stage presence”…?

Nellie McKay “Caribbean Time” on Craig Ferguson

15th Dec 10 (Wed) Leave a comment

Nellie McKay performs “Caribbean Time” from Home Sweet Mobile Home on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson… oh, and he’s holding up a vinyl for it…

Hmmm… search for it on vinyl comes up nada.  Must just be a promo flat.  Damn.

Faith No More & Sparks (live last night)

2nd Dec 10 (Thu) Leave a comment

A lot of bands put out special one-off collaborations.  Not many actually perform those one-off songs in a live setting.

Well, Faith No More‘s collaboration with Sparks called “This Town Ain’t Big Enough For the Both of Us” is one of my favorite b-sides of theirs.  They did it last night at the Los Angeles Paladium show (Dec 1, 2010)… with Sparks…

Officially, surprisingly MORE jealous of those who went – as this seems legendary.  FYI, the recorded version was released as a UK single and on Sparks’ Plagiarism album.

Tango Saloon with Mike Patton (video)

23rd Nov 10 (Tue) Leave a comment

How did I miss this video for two years?

Cartoon animation (from the Portuguese cartoon O Vampiro Turma da Monica) to the Tango Saloon song “Dracula Cha Cha” featuring Mike Patton on vocals.

“Dracula Cha Cha” comes from Tango Saloon’s Transylvania (out in 2008 – which hasn’t appeared stateside, yet).  Mike Patton (whose Ipecac label released the Tango Saloon’s debut album in the U.S.) is only featured on the one track.  Patton fans, don’t discount that… the entire album is pretty great.

I got my copy via the Amazons… for not too hefty a price (but now it’s ludicrous).  you may have better luck contacting bandleader Julian Curwin directly (via one of his MySpace pages).

Sufjan Stevens “Too Much” (music video)

22nd Nov 10 (Mon) Leave a comment

Sufjan Stevens made his network TV debut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Friday 11/19 (), and now the release of the “official music video” for “Too Much” from The Age of Adz today…

It is the video that played behind his band during the recent tour (my photo from the Portland show above).  The video is as energetic and enigmatic as the Fallon performance.  I’m digging it.

Holy F*ck – Red Lights (official video)

14th Oct 10 (Thu) Leave a comment

Holy Fuck‘s new video for “Red Lights” (their 2nd single from this year’s Latin) is adorable and dance-worthy…


Director: Brian Borcherdt & Michael LeBlanc
Production Co.: Slowlover Films
Executive Producer:  Michael LeBlanc
DOP:  Michael LeBlanc
Editor:  Phil Prates

LATIN is one of my favorites this year.  Go check it out on the Amazons.

Holy Fuck.  Inspired by Kittens.

I’ll be seeing HF tonight at the Holocene in Portland, Oregon.  Review with photos to be posted on Friday.

Ben Folds & Nick Hornby & Pomplamoose

10th Oct 10 (Sun) Leave a comment

Sure, it came out a month ago, but I was waiting to post about it until I got a chance to listen to Ben Folds & Nick Hornby‘s collaborative album before I posted the video song to the Pomplamoose & Ben Folds (& Nick Hornby) song.  Alas, the song isn’t even on the album (unless you buy the deluxe version)… haha.  Good thing they didn’t make that an “album only” song on the iTunes version.

Anyway, here’s the great video song for “Things You Think“…

VideoSong, a new medium with 2 rules:
1. What you see is what you hear (no lip-syncing for instruments or voice).
2. If you hear it, at some point you see it (no hidden sounds).

Check out more video songs from Pomplamoose over on their YouTube channel.  They’re rad video musicians.  I got hooked after their version of Lady Gaga‘s “Telephone”…

Check out Ben Folds & Nick Hornby’s album, Lonely Avenue, over at the Amazons

Rain Dance by Turf Feinz

9th Oct 10 (Sat) 1 comment

It’s raining in Eugene today… we don’t have dancers like they have in Oakland, though…


Dancers are No Noize (red jacket), Man (back jacket), BJ (striped shirt), Dreal (white shirt).

Simply stunning.  I don’t know if this is break-dancing, popping & locking, a combination of both, or something totally different.  Regardless, it’s awesome.

Update: it’s called turf dancing or turfin’…
