Moon Taxi's 'Morocco': Watch the Nashville buzz band's new video here

moon-taxi

If you haven’t seen Nashville rockers Moon Taxi on tour opening for the likes of Gov’t Mule or Matisyahu, or caught them earlier this year on Conan, you’d be forgiven for thinking they’re either ace travel agents or amateur geographers, based on the name of their most recent album, Mountains Beaches Cities, and the title of their latest single, “Morocco.”

But nope, they’re just a charmingly beard-y band, with a fun new video directed by photographer Matthew Wignall (Cold War Kids, Black Keys, Delta Spirit), which you can watch exclusively here: READ FULL STORY

Passion Pit remix SomeKindaWonderful's 'Reverse' -- EXCLUSIVE

Sometimes, inspiration is a tiny seed that hibernates until it blossoms, fed slowly but steadily by patience and luck. And sometimes it’s a thing that happens a few hours after a bunch of dudes meet in a bar in Cleveland.

That second scenario is pretty much how SomeKindaWonderful‘s “Reverse” which recently took the #1 most-played song spot on SiriusXM Alt Nation and is sneaking up the playlists of rock-radio stations across the country, came to be. Now the band’s breakout track has a brand-new remix by Passion Pit, available exclusively on EW.com — listen below: READ FULL STORY

'Archer': New 'Danger Zone' video -- EXCLUSIVE

Unfamiliar with country’s hottest new star, Cherlene? Well, that may be because she doesn’t exist. “Cherlene” is actually a Judy Greer-voiced character on the animated FX spy comedy Archer whose most recent season has tracked her unlikely rise through the country ranks (at least those parts of the season which haven’t tracked the feckless attempts by her colleagues to sell a metric tonne of cocaine).

Wild Cub rock high school gym in cinematic new 'Thunder Clatter' video -- EXCLUSIVE

One of our favorite music-video motifs is the whole “high-school athletics department and facilities” theme. Rockers from Nirvana to Nada Surf have been responsible for some of the more memorable examples of that motif in the past, but the latest foray into the genre comes from Nashville indie-pop group Wild Cub.

The band’s cinematic new clip for the single “Thunder Clatter” (a song recently heard on an episode of The Vampire Diaries) has everything from bleeding cheerleaders to Greco-Roman wrestlers. There’s even a full-sized gymnasium for the band to shred in.

It’s all fitting, given that the song comes from their album titled Youth. As singer/guitarist Keegan DeWitt said, “It’s a challenge to make a video that can serve as both a tasteful introduction to the band and a distillation of a lot of the themes on Youth. Drew [Bourdet, the video's director] really struck a delicate balance, showing some of the intimate and smaller moments that we hint at throughout the record, but never hitting you over the head. He lays out a long slate of moments, all with a palpable undercurrent and intangible vibration.”

Let the members of Wild Cub send you back to school with the exclusive premiere of “Thunder Clatter” below.

Brian Eno talks being an art-school kid, finding inspiration, and more -- EXCLUSIVE

brian-eno.jpg

Brian Eno is a man who knows things about things — from his early days with glam-rock godheads Roxy Music to essentially inventing ambient music in the 1970s and producing iconic albums for the likes of David Bowie, Talking Heads, and U2.(Also: doing this.)

Last year, he sat down with the Red Bull Music Academy for their documentary What Difference Does It Make: A Film About Making Music.which can be streamed for free via RBMA15.com and on Red Bull TV.

The doc (which was shot at last year’s event in New York) includes talks with such luminaries as Philip Glass, Giorgio Moroder, Nile Rodgers, Erykah Badu, James Murphy, and more — not to mention, or course, our man Eno.

Watch the bonus Eno footage below:
