Bikini – “ACheerlaeder” (Video)

Here’s a new video from synthy/electro-pop band Bikini for their track, “ACheerlaeder”.  There’s definitely a whole lot of rich-teenage angst in this video–it’s very R.J. Berger, and there’s even a few nice shots of a young, naked woman draped across what appears to be an assortment of phonebooks.  Jump and give it a watch, the vid (and the track, for that matter) isn’t too shabby.

Crosby, Nash & Young – “Party in the U.S.A.” (Live on Fallon)

Ok, this is pretty cool.  The timeless David Crosby, Graham Nash, and Neil Young were on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon recently and they busted out a fairly unusual cover (at least for them).  With acoustic guitars and sublime vocal harmonies, the trio played a toned down version of Miley Cyrus’s “Party in the U.S.A.” Sound strange?  Well, it sort of is, but you know what?  It works in an equally as strange way.  Jump and check it out.

Memorial Day Post: Jimi Hendrix – “The Star-Spangled Banner”

Happy Memorial Day everyone, I hope you’re all grilling out with your loved ones and celebrating America by getting as tanked as possible.  It’s days like this one when I’m celebrating the country I love that I’m reminded of one of those all so incredibly American people whose identity as a patriot often gets taken for granted–Jimi Hendrix.  During his time and for decades after, Jimi Hendrix has been the face of American music.  His records are timeless, his music was totally unique unto itself, and his image was intimately his own.  Jimi Hendrix is the true American musical artist; hit the jump to check out James Marshall Hendrix performing a most spirited version of Francis Scott Keys’ “The Star-Spangled Banner”, then go toss a few cold ones back and stumble around with some sparklers for me (and America).  Enjoy.

Weezer – “Paranoid Android” (Radiohead Cover)

I think it really takes balls to cover any Radiohead song–I mean enormous fucking ca-hones, particularly when it’s as famous a song as “Paranoid Android”.  Musically, Weezer pretty much nails it.  All the instrumentation’s there including those precious soaring uber-distorted guitars; the only real qualm I have with this performance are River Cuomo’s vocals–they just can’t ever quite replace Thom Yorke’s presence.  Jump and check this one out.

Mr. Little Jeans – “The Suburbs” (Arcade Fire Cover)

Here’s a little electronic ditty for your listening pleasure this weekend courtesy of Mr. Little Jeans (who is not actually a mister).  This is an almost haunting cover of Arcade Fire’s track, “The Suburbs”.  The vocals are sultry and sexy; there’s just the right amount of production–this one grooves.  I’m really hoping to get my hands on some more Mr. Little Jeans material.  Jump and check it, you won’t be disappointed.  P.S. I think I’ve just found my latest indie crush.  (Thanks to In Audio We Trust)

Here’s a new video from Justice for the title-track of their last album, Civilization.  If you’re into chaos, big things, and a little bit of irony, this video’s definitely for you.  Many notable monuments from around the world (including Mt. Rushmore, Stonehenge, Christ the Redeemer, etc.) come tumbling down, down, down to the ground.  Check it out; I like it.  Jump and enjoy.
