If you’re looking to take a break from Kanye’s latest single, check out these five new musical achievements that will most definitely rock your world, or just your ears…
EAGLES OF DEATH METAL – “SILVERLAKE”
Josh Homme and Jesse Hughes set their sites on LA hipster culture in the latest single off the forthcoming EODM LP Zipper Down. “Silverlake” jabs the Los Angeles neighborhood of the same name with lines like “I am from Silverlake and therefore I don’t give a damn,” and “I am from Silverlake and I am in a cool band.” Let’s all cross our fingers that they accompany this tune with a video.
Zipper Down is out October 2nd.
FATHER JOHN MISTY – “THE NIGHT JOSH TILLMAN CAME TO OUR APARTMENT”
Father John Misty, aka Josh Tillman, kissed himself, French-style, this week in his new music video for I Love You Honeybear track “The Night Josh Tillman Came To Our Apartment.” In a statement Tillman described the video’s inspiration, “This video is partially inspired by the LeBron James quote ‘It is precisely the superficial differences between people who are otherwise alike that inform the hostilities between them.’ Special thanks to my body double Tyler who I had to kiss no fewer than two dozen times and whose breath I can still smell in my mind’s eye.” So we can thank LeBron for this masterpiece.
RYAN ADAMS – “BAD BLOOD” (TAYLOR SWIFT COVER)
A few weeks back we shared tweeted clips of Ryan Adams’ forthcoming album which will be a top-to-bottom replica of Taylor Swift’s 1989. This week, we finally got our first full-taste in his acoustic “Wonderwall"-esque cover of “Bad Blood.”
RUN THE JEWELS/TV ON THE RADIO – “ANGEL DUSTER”
If the first week of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert taught us anything it’s that Letterman’s predecessor will maintain his legacy of late night musical dominance. In addition to a superjam of Mavis Staples, Ben Folds and Brittany Howard (Alabama Shakes), as well as performances by Kendrick Lamar and The Dead Weather, Colbert welcomed Run The Jewels who performed “Angel Dust” with backing band TV On The Radio.
BLACK LIPS – “FREEDOM FRIES”
The Black Lips released their jangly single off a split 7-inch with fellow Atlanta-based garage act The Coathangers, due out November 13th via Suicide Squeeze.
