BLACK-JOE-LEWIS-COVER.jpg

There’s nothing like a little worked-up rock ‘n’ roll to get you through a post-holiday Tuesday, right? Let the Austin-based Black Joe Lewis oblige.

The band’s next album, Electric Slave, doesn’t hit streets until late August, but we’ve got a preview, “Come to My Party,” for you exclusively here. And beware: the track is on the funky side, full of urgency and sweaty swagger — a bit different from the heavy album cut “Skulldiggin,” which debuted online last month.

Take a listen to the new song below:

Queens of the Stone Age's 'No One Knows': Watch the sexy video for Olivier Libaux's groovy cover featuring Inara George - EXCLUSIVE

Olivier-Libaux-Clip.jpg

Olivier Libaux is a prolific songwriter, performer, and producer, but he’s probably most known for Nouvelle Vague, a project that took punk and New Wave classics (like Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart” and the Clash’s “Guns of Brixton”) and reworked them into awesomely lounge-lizardy grooves.

Libaux’s latest project is called Uncovered: QOTSA, which takes Queens of the Stone Age songs and gives them the Nouvelle Vague treatment.  Singer/songwriter Inara George has the privilege of taking on what is probably the band’s best known hit, “No One Knows,” and inspiring a faceless, langorous girl to strip down to her birthday suit in the video, which you can watch exclusively below.

Hear 'Sons of Anarchy' soundtrack favorite the White Buffalo's new song 'Joey White' - EXCLUSIVE

Between his gravel-voiced tales of hardship and his epic beard, it’s no surprise that singer-songwriter the White Buffalo has had a total of six of his songs appear on Sons of Anarchy (including the awesome “The Whistler,” which underscored one of last season’s biggest moments).

The man born Jake Smith has several new projects coming up, including a song called “The American Dream” that will be appearing on the soundtrack to The Lone Ranger and a concept album he’s been working on called Shadows, Greys, and Evil Ways.

That album, due September 10, is a 14-track examination of an Iraq War veteran, from his enlistment to combat to his eventual return and unraveling. According to Smith, the track “Joey White” is the keystone. “This song follows Joey’s whirlwind military experience,” Smith explains. “Starting with joining, training, and the chaos of combat and war. He’s shot and sent home a changed man.”

Listen to the premiere of “Joey White” exclusively below:

Hear a new, unreleased version of Big Star's 'September Gurls': EXCLUSIVE

BIG-STAR-COVER.jpg

Last year, the endlessly influential but often under-appreciated Big Star got a much-deserved rock-doc treatment when Nothing Can Hurt Me hit the festival circuit. And though the documentary won’t see its official release until July 3, the movie’s soundtrack — loaded with unreleased demos and unheard versions of the Memphis band’s most beloved songs – hits streets today.

The 22-track collection includes a new mix of a “September Gurls,” which you can hear exclusively here. Written and sung by the late Alex Chilton, the 1974 Radio City cut is considered by fans as one of Big Star’s best, and this unissued version proves them right.

Listen the alternate mix of “September Gurls” below:

Watch Aubrey Plaza and Jake Johnson in JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound's 'Rouse Yourself' video - EXCLUSIVE

jake-johnson-aubrey-plaza.jpg

This groovy, way-back kind of summer that began with Daft Punk, shimmied on through Bruno Mars, and took a Steely spin with Mayer Hawthorne, now continues with JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound — with a little help from their fancy TV-star friends.

“Rouse Yourself,” from the Chicago quintet’s new album, Howl, perfectly encapsulates what they call their “post-punk soul” sound. And apparently it inspired New Girl star Jake Johnson (Johnson is friends with the band’s guitarist) and Parks and Recreation‘s Aubrey Plaza to act like total deranged ninja (okay, that’s mostly Johnson) in the clip.

Check out the exclusive premiere of the “Rouse Yourself” video below: READ FULL STORY

Listen to acclaimed indie rockers Goldspot's new song 'Abyss' -- EXCLUSIVE

You may not know New York-based multi-culti rockers Goldspot by name — but if you have a television (their songs have been featured on shows like How I Met Your Mother and The OC), a Netflix account (The Dilemma, How Do You Know), or an Apple product (their music was used to help launch the iPad) you’ve probably heard them.

Though the band’s third album, Aerogramme, isn’t due till August 20, EW has an exclusive sneak peak of the record, produced by frontman Siddhartha Khosla and Beach Boys engineer Jeff Peters.

Listen to the jangling, melodic “Abyss” below (and preview another track, “The Border Line,” here on iTunes):
