Video: UK dance duo Jungle's brand-new 'Time'

Jungle.jpg

The two lifelong friends who make up the core of the British dance music group Jungle—they expand to a seven-piece for shows—go by the initials “J” and “T” and have generally kept as low a profile as possible while simultaneously blowing up in the UK on a level that suggests they might be this year’s Disclosure.

On July 15, they’re releasing a self-titled debut album on XL. In preparation, they just released a video for the single “Time.” The song is a kaleidoscopic pileup of soul, disco, and house music with a deep groove, psychedelic flourishes, and transcendent falsetto vocals that suggest a futuristic rendition of the Bee Gees’ disco phase.

For the accompanying visual, they have two rather dapper older gentlemen engage in a very smooth dance-off.

Jeff and Spencer Tweedy release first video from their new band Tweedy

Spencer Tweedy, son of Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy, is only 18 years old—but he’s already sort of a rock veteran. He started his first band, the Blisters, at age seven, rang in his 13th birthday on stage with Wilco at Madison Square Garden opening for Neil Young, and has drummed on recordings by soul legend Mavis Staples and indie rockers White Denim.

He and Jeff recently launched a father-son band, appropriately called Tweedy, and they’re already pulling in gushing reviews from roots rocker types. They have an album (Sukierae) coming out September 16, and they just released a video for the lead single, “Summer Noon.” Directed by Allison House, the animated clip follows the wide-ranging travels of a lonely red balloon. Hit the jump to watch.

The ridiculously prolific E-40 drops a new video for 'Bamboo'

bamboo

If you’ve been enjoying DJ Mustard’s string of bass-heavy, minimalist slappers that have been taking over the pop charts recently (among them Ty Dolla $ign’s “Paranoid” and Kid Ink’s “Show Me”) and you’re not already familiar with the work of Bay Area rap legend E-40, whose uncluttered aesthetic provided much of blueprint Mustard’s working from, now would be a good time to fix that. Next month, the ridiculously prolific rapper will release a four-album set called Sharp on All 4 Corners, his first release since last December’s three-disc set The Block Brochure: Welcome To the Soil, Pt. 4, 5, & 6. Which of course is the follow-up to the original trilogy, The Block Brochure: Welcome To the Soil, Pt. 1, 2, & 3, released allllll the way back in 2012.

Yesterday, he released a new video from the latest Block Brochure set. “Bamboo” is classic E-40 and a great jump-on point for new fans, with a typically stripped-down track, an effortless tongue-twister flow, and a tribute in the hook to bamboo doorknocker earrings, which are in style right now because they never really go out of style. For the video, he’s recruited a squad of dancers who do unreal things with their bodies without seeming to come close to breaking a sweat—which is what 40’s been doing with his raps for ages.

Veruca Salt's fan-assisted 'It's Holy' video -- EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE

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.  READ FULL STORY

Psy's 'Gangnam Style' crosses 2 billion YouTube views

GANGAM-STYLE-PSY.jpg

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.”

That moment when Steven Tyler forgets the words to his own song -- VIDEO

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 dances with a robot in 'Appreciate' video

PAUL-MCCARTNEY-ROBOT.jpg

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.”
