Record Store Day 2014 marked the official recorded return of Veruca Salt, the Chicago-born quartet whose albums American Thighs and Eight Arms To Hold You are definitive entries in any ’90s alt-rock fan’s collection. The band’s original lineup—Louise Post, Nina Gordon, Steve Lack, and Jim Shapiro—hadn’t played together since 1998, but they have stormed back with a pair of tracks on a limited-edition 10-inch piece of vinyl that ended up being one of the big gets of RSD.

You’ll never believe your eyes, again and again and again. And hey! There’s also a song playing.
OK Go has made a name for themselves for their viral music videos, setting their music to everything from a choreographed treadmill routine to the motions of an incredibly detailed Rube Goldberg machine. Their latest video for “The Writing’s on the Wall” is no slouch in the viral department, moving between several sets of optical illusions over the course of one four-minute shot.
Justin Timberlake loves love. He loves your love so much, he put dozens of love-story photos and videos — platonic, romantic, straight, gay, familial, interspecies — submitted by fans to #NotaBadLoveStory to create the video for his most recent single, “Not a Bad Thing.”
Watch it below:
Either everybody and their mother has viewed Psy’s video for “Gangnam Style” at this point, or some of you are still watching the South Korean pop star do the horse dance five times a day.
The video for the irrepressible dance song has now surpassed 2 billion views, crossing the mark shortly before midnight on Friday. The only other video with a billion-plus views on the streaming site is Justin Bieber’s “Baby.” But at 1.04 billion clicks, even “Baby” doesn’t come close to topping the unlikely viral star’s YouTube popularity.
Psy also holds another YouTube record: He scored the most views in a day with 38 million for his “Gangnam Style” followup, “Gentleman.”

In Tori Amos’ new video for the smoky single “Trouble’s Lament,” off her freshly released Unrepentant Geraldines, the fiery-haired singer croons, “Trouble needs a home, girls/She fell out with Satan, now she’s on the run,” as she sits in a diner watching three ladies — all named Trouble? — escape their dark pasts with some sly tricks and sleight of hand.
The North Carolina native spins a tale echoing her Southern roots. In this story, it’s a woman standing at the crossroads and bartering for her soul. And the Devil, it seems, is happy to help her out…who do you think drives that getaway car? Watch it below: READ FULL STORY
We’ve all been there. You start belting out a song you love — maybe after imbibing a few drinks — and you’re confident. You’re pretty sure you are Annie Lennox. Then comes the forgettable wasteland of the second verse, and you trail off into just making yodeling noises. Er…
That just happened to Steven Tyler — but he was singing his own song. READ FULL STORY
Paul McCartney may have partnered with his biggest collaborator yet — in physical size, that is.
The Beatles legend stars opposite an oversized robot named Newman in the music video for “Appreciate,” a track off the pop star’s album New, released last year. In the clip, McCartney is an exhibit at The Museum of Man, where Newman is on patrol. When the singer comes to life, Newman pulls him into his reality, where other exhibits become animated, thanks to the sweet sounds of Macca.
“I woke up one morning with an image in my head of me standing with a large robot,” McCartney said in a statement. “I thought it might be something that could be used for the cover of my album New, but instead the idea turned out to be for my music video for ‘Appreciate.’ Together with the people who had done the puppetry for the worldwide hit War Horse, we developed the robot who became Newman.”

One of the great ongoing narratives in the music world is the continued success of Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2 which has kept moving big units since its release last November, without very much promotion or fanfare. But when Eminem does come out of hiding to plug a new single, he does it in the biggest ways possible.
The Black Keys debuted their video for “Fever” off their eighth album Turn Blue and I feel flu-y (or is it the Spirit?) just watching it. Dan Auerbach is peddling some televangelism and he looks so seedy and sweaty that I think I’m coming down with something.
People are speaking in tongues, getting Holy Spirit-induced seizures, and waving bibles, which we can assume is just another Thursday on WTBK: READ FULL STORY
Tiësto just debuted his video for “Wasted,” which is basically a Mad Men era fantasy of a ladies’ luncheon devolving into a raging sorority girls gone wild pool party/pillow fight/dancing in your underwear thing. Since that’s what usually happens when girls get wasted.
Tiësto himself appears as a dreamy variety show host, and featured track guest Matthew Koma as one of the musical acts. The costume and set designers nailed Palm Springs in the 1960’s. Nicely timed to the post-Coachella blues. READ FULL STORY
