FINALLY! The Shins video to “Simple Song” is out!

One of the best music videos I have seen in a long, long time… yeah, I’m sure you hear this all the time, BUT THIS IS THE ONE! If you missed the release of The Shins video “Simple Song”, take a few minutes from your ever so busy day, and experience the emotional rollercoaster that the Shins take you on. You’ll start with a bit of sorrow, and quickly gain an energetic boost of excitement, followed by remorse, and joyfully wrapping it up with the great feeling of belonging to a family.
I know… I’ve said too much and should’ve give the “Spoiler Alert”, but oh well, you’ll watch it anyways.
Another gem to check out at SXSW 2012.
ENJOY!

Get down with T Bird and the Breaks-”Dancehall Freakin”, new EP

Austin has been pumping out great musicians for quite a while now, and we have another to add to that list. T. Bird and the Breaks are an amazing group and so well-rounded. I love when I come across a band that knows how to get me up and moving to their music, and it seems like horns and saxophones always give me this vibe.

When I first heard T Bird and the Breaks, I would describe their sound to be a cross of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, James Brown, and Stevie Wonder, with a little crunch it. If you’re headed to SXSW, go check them out. Have a listen to them at the link below, provided by MOKB (My Old Kentucky Blog).

Rocket Juice and the Moon are a new band made up of three awe-inspiring rock artists; Damon Albarn (Blur and Goriilaz), Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers), and Tony Allen (Fela Kuti). They are set to release their debut, self-titled album March 26. The three have come together to create a new sound that combines their three different styles to bring you a poppy, electric type feel, but still holding down deep bass riffs from Flea. The link below is for the first track “Hey Shooter”, and features Erykah Badu.

Bon Iver’s video for “Tower”

video directed by NABIL

The man in the video is coming to terms that his time on earth will soon come to an end. The video shows the man peacefully facing death, as he rows out to sea and crumbles along with what seems to be a larger replica of his wood whittling sculptures. He floats off in a state of tranquility, unknowingly accepting what lies ahead next. Bon Iver has done it once again, and his Grammy winning project is a mere reflection of his ingenuousness work.
