Brandon Flowers brought Crossfire to the Kimmel audience last night. Did he really have to bust out that damn vest again?!? Flamingo was released yesterday in the U.S.
We can't even go into how f**king amazing Janette Beckman's work is. We just caught her show in LA at Project Space. It was phenomenal. Her career has covered some of the most important musical movements in history - the late 70's British punk, mod and 2-Tone scenes and birth of hip hop in the early 80's in NYC. Beckman's snapshot of Adam Ant above is one of our favorites. A very quitenessential young Ant in London, taken in 1980. Shot just before Ant-Mania was about to [...]
Everyone has jammed to this groove at one time or another. I remember living up in the Bay, and this track just rocking the clubs long before anybody actually knew who EMF was. The band actually played the SF hood a few times and I'll always remember the EMF shows as some of the craziest, wildest live events to take place during the 90's. They even spawned a huge pit, yes pit, at each show - who would have thought? Take it away -
We guess it was only a matter of time, but still this one is quite unexpected. Not in a bad way, as we actually dig this album, but it seems a bit obsure which actually makes it a bit more intriguing. Anway, Curiostiy Killed The Cat get the full reissue treatment for their most well known album, Keep Your Distance . The album hit #1 in the UK back in 87', thanks to the massive hit, Misfit . This new [...]
Bryan Ferry recruited Supermodel Kate Moss for the cover of his upcoming album Olympia , due October 25th. Apparently Ferry collaborated with Nile Rodgers on the record - among others, including his ex- Roxy Music band mates Phil Manzanera , Andy Mackay and Brian Eno . Check out the video for You Can Dance below -
Love this track from The Go-Go's . Probably runs second in our Go-Go's list next to Lust To Love , a pretty unbeatable song. We are drawn to their more "dark" leaning stuff vs. the overly cheery, happy, poppy material. The below performance was shot in 1981 at Palos Verde High School in Southern California. The show was later released on video under the title Totally Go-Go's Live .
Full live version of Nobody's Diary set to a little animation below. The track is taken from the duo's upcoming live album Reconnected Live . We've been posting all about it, read more here. Also Alison conducted a little Q&A with fans via their official Yazoo site, peep that here .
Time for new music from one of our favorites from the great Northwest. The Thermals return with Personal Life , due next Tuesday, the 7th. Head over to NPR for a full album listening stream. Click here to get it all started. We're giving it our first spin now. If you missed the video for I Don't Believe You , view in our post here .
We were just wondering what was up with the Friendly Fires crew and guess what? They've got a full on mix compilation hitting the streets September 27th as part of the ongoing Bugged Out Suck My Deck series. The collection features a brand new Friendly Fires track, Stay Here , created in conjuntion with Toronto House folks Azari & III . Listen here . We really dig it. Signature [...]

And then there were three... the trimmed down version of Interpol released their video for single Barricade . The track is taken from their upcoming selt-titled fourth album. The band has this to say about the shoot on their official site - Check out our new video for Barricade. It was directed by Moh Azima and was shot at the Floyd Bennett Airfield in Brooklyn. It was a long day and there was lots of mosquitoes but it all was worth it. Kind [...]
