New Music Discovery

Watch: Julian Casablancas + The Voidz Play Fallon, It's Weird.

I just don't know what to do with the new album from Julian Casablancas + The Voidz. Tyranny is so strange, from a different universe almost. The album is as if they have an audience that none of us can even comprehend. It's so strange that it's quite appealing. So, with a unsure understanding in...

The Black Keys Played Fallon, Did Awesome Edwyn Collins Cover

The Black Keys not only gave us a live taste of their new single, "Gotta Get Away", but then also performed a second song/awesome cover of Edwyn Collins "Girl Like You". Now, there's something I never expected to type. Check out both from the Tonight Show below: Woah! Do you even remember that song...

WATCH: Meg Myers - "Go"

Many months ago, a friend of mine told me I had to listen to this chick named Meg Myers. He claimed "she's the next Fiona, you're gonna love her!" and he wasn't wrong. I love how raw Meg's music is, much like Ms. Apple's. She's talented, a total badass, and a real alternative female artist which is...

New Music Discovery: Stream Alt-J's New Album 'This Is All Yours'

If there's one awesome thing the internet figured out in the last several years, it's that no matter how hard most record labels try, new music leaks and rather than fighting it, just beat leakers by streaming it yourself! Thanks to a partnership between their label and iTunes, Alt-J's new record...

New Music Discovery: Shellac 'Dude Incredible'

I like to think of it as music for grumpy dudes - Curmudgeon Core perhaps - my favorite 'old guys being angry in their 40's' band, Shellac, dropped on us their first new album since 2007's 'Excellent Italian Greyhound'. Boy did they take their time to write 8 songs that clock in at a bold 32...

Hozier covers the Arctic Monkeys and it's beautiful!

Try to prepare yourself for this one: Hozier recently did a cover of "Do I Wanna Know?" by the Arctic Monkeys! While the Arctic Monkeys ooze rockstar sexuality in their songs, Hozier is all about the emotional ballads that give you goosebumps. So naturally, the Irish musician has somehow managed to...

More Insight Into Foo Fighters 'Sonic Highways'

I haven't been this excited about a Foo Fighters record since Dave got off the road with QOTSA and prepared to launch One by One . Thanks to videos like this talking about being in Seattle, working with Albini, going to DC's Inner Ear studios and hanging out with Ian MacKaye, the launch day for...

Watch: Jack White's New Video For 'Would You Fight For My Love'

It a move that should surprise absolutely NO ONE, Mr White released his new video and it's flooded with the blue and black imagery of his now two album solo career. The dude sure does commit to an idea. Also, is the color selection of black and blue a metaphor for how Jack's feeling on the inside?...

Watch: Death From Above 1979 Thunder on 'the Late Show'

This certainly isn't the cleanest performance I've seen on TV, and I wish the bass was turned up louder to things could be muddier, BUT this is quite the face melting band. Celebrating the release of The Physical World, DFA1979, with the help of the Late Show band, thundered through "Trainwreck...

Listen: New Music from Weezer "Cleopatra"

Woah, I think "Back to the Shack" is a bit of silly song trying to convince you that the old Weezer is back. Fine. "We'll see", I thought. Then the band goes and gives us a second sample from Everything Will Be Alright in the End and it's got all the Weezer-y things I've been missing from the band...
