Regardless of how tuned in you think you are to the popular music scene, there's always something good slipping under the radar. One of the most recent examples for me is Butch Walker . The Georgia-born musician and producer has been making waves since his early hair metal days with Southgang . He moved on to the Marvelous 3 in the late 902s, and, and over the last decade, he's found success as a pop/rock solo artist and producer (Pink, Weezer, Fall Out Boy). Butch Walker [...]
Before - Dexys Midnight Runners "Come On Eileen" After - Butch Walker & The Black Widows "Synthesizers"
If only every music video could start with an appearance from Matthew McConaughey as his Dazed And Confused character, Wooderson. Watch as he enters the club dripping with '70s sex appeal as he seduces everyone on the dance floor. It's a rambunctious song filled with horns and pounding keys commenting on today's culture, throwing jabs at [...]
Now normally I’m not a fan of writing reviews about singles, but lately several cool songs have come across my desk. Although the majority of them can be classified as alternative and indie music, there is a cool New York hard rock band worth mentioning. I hope you enjoy my random selection Fun - We Are Young From the moment I first heard “We Are Young” I knew I listened to one of the best songs of 2012. Yes, only a few weeks into the new [...]
So, this band is very, very new to me but after watching this brilliant video for the song, "Synthesizers," featuring Matthew McConaughey as Wooderson from Dazed and Confused, you can count me as a big fan. Please enjoy this amazing video, song and Mr. McConaughey in his only good role to date.
Butch Walker, as previously stated, can do no wrong. This video is obviously no exception. It bucks trends, makes fun of (pop) cultural stereotypes, and features the one and only Matthew McConaughey reprising a famous role. With the help of The Films' Michael Trent, Walker has created yet another great album to add to your collection. This is one of the singles from The Spade , which came out in August. Enjoy! Lyrics after the jump... everybody’s writing songs with synthesizers but I [...]
Check out the video for “Synthesizers” , the latest single from Butch Walker and the Black Widows’ album, The Spade . Yes, that is Matthew McConaughey reprising his role as the super cool David Wooderson from Dazed and Confused. Butch Walker and the Black Widows - “Synthesizers”
Matthew McConaughey reprising a role from the past? A Ron Jeremy cameo? Music by the perpetual underdog Butch Walker? Awesome. Hating on synthesizers? Meh.
Matthew McConaughey reprises Wooderson character from Dazed & Confused for this new video by Butch Walker and the Black Widows . Sweet! Track's not too shabby either. Synthesizers by ButchWalker
It's a funny thing about Matthew McConaughey: Though he may get older, he always looks the same age.
** In case you were wondering, Wooderson is one of my top five favorite movie characters. Shit, everything Matthew McConaughey has ever done is fine because he was Wooderson (including all those shitty romantic comedies, seriously). Alright, alright, alright... * BUY Butch Walker and the Black Widows ' Synthesizers ' :: FACEBOOK

- "Synthesizers (w. The Black Widows)" music video by Butch Walker - Added on 23-01-2012 - Genre : Rock & Alternative - Description : Music video by Butch Walker And The Black Widows performing Synthesizers. @ 2012 Dangerbird Records - Tags : 2012 , 10s , Butch Walker
There's something funny about Matthew McConaughey singing the lyrics to Butch Walker & the Black Widows ' "Synthesizers." Perhaps it's because the lip-synching involves his reprisal of the"Dazed and Confused" character David Wooderson, who has, indeed, stayed the same age. Still wearing those '70s duds and burning one down, he's got the young girls following him around in a modern club setting this time around. After taking in the extra eye candy like the creep he brilliantly was in the 1993 stoner comedy, he stops to say hi to the bartender (who should look very familiar) on his way [...]
