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.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis perform 'Same Love' for ONE's agit8 campaign: Watch it here -- EXCLUSIVE

GEEK-MACKLEMORE-LEWIS.jpg

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have parlayed their chart-topping success (their single “Can’t Hold Us” remains at the top of the Billboard Hot 100) into a platform for a number of charitable causes.

The Seattle hip-hop duo have stood up for gay rights, the Boys & Girls Club, and drug abuse counseling, and now they have teamed with dozens of other artists and ONE to rally against extreme poverty.

Alongside the likes of U2, Green Day, Ed Sheeran, Kid Rock, Mumford & Sons, and Elvis Costello, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are part of ONE’s new agit8 campaign, which urges both world leaders and young people to fight against extreme poverty and hunger in the world’s poorest nations. The hope is to draw attention to those problems in advance of the upcoming G8 Summit in Northern Ireland.

In order to draw ears and eyes, the participating musicians have recorded new versions of beloved protest songs. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis didn’t need to draw from someone else’s song—they already had the single “Same Love” in the holster, and recorded a fresh version of it for the agit8 campaign.

Check out their very special performance of “Same Love,” with a rare appearance by guest vocalist Mary Lambert, in an exclusive video premiere below: READ FULL STORY

Watch Jimmy Cliff perform 'The Harder They Come' on 'Guitar Center Sessions' - EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Last year, reggae icon Jimmy Cliff made a stunning return to music in the form of Rebirth, a lively collection of tunes produced by Rancid’s Tim Armstrong that cut right to the heart of what the island sound is all about.

Cliff’s victory lap—which included a team-up with Bruce Springsteen at SXSW and a Grammy nomination—continues this Friday, January 25, when Cliff performs on the TV show Guitar Center Sessions.

The show sets up stars in the Guitar Center in Hollywood, and so far this season has delivered dynamic sets from the likes of Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh and the reconstituted Ben Folds Five.

Check out the exclusive premiere of Cliff’s Guitar Center Sessions performance of the classic track “The Harder They Come” below.  READ FULL STORY

Watch Wake Owl's new video 'Gold' here - EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE

Wake-Owl_510x317.jpg

Wake Owl is the nom de studio of singer-songwriter Colyn Cameron, a worldly rambler who intricately constructs hymns out of warm-strummed folk, breezy country hardware like steel guitars and violins, and his slightly psychedelic coo.

His new single “Gold” (which has also been featured on Grey’s Anatomy) comes from the forthcoming EP Wild Country, which will be available January 29 via Vagrant Records. Check out the exclusive premiere of the video for “Gold,” which deftly translates the track’s dusty swirl into visual form, below.  READ FULL STORY

T.I. on VH1's 'Behind the Music': 'Prison sucks' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

T.I. famously served two stints in prison at the near-height of his career, and that time is one of the many subjects the rapper delves into in tonight’s Behind the Music on VH1. The hour of television — which EW has an exclusive video sneak peek of below — is an update to the 2009 episode the series originally produced on T.I.

Of course, after T.I. (born Clifford Harris) was released from jail in 2010, he embarked on a media tour that found him talking about his time behind bars — and one of those appearances, a portion of a Larry King interview, is included in the exclusive clip below.

But T.I. also does a fresh interview with VH1, where he expresses some of the hardships of serving time. “I don’t think I have to sell the fact that prison sucks,” the rapper and father of six says in the exclusive clip below. “When you have your liberties and the loves of your life taken away from you, it puts a lot of things in perspective.”

You can catch the entire Behind the Music: T.I. episode tonight at 10 p.m. on VH1, but until then, whet your appetite with this exclusive sneak peek at the hour here on EW.com:

Benjamin Gibbard tries to revamp his image for 'Teardrop Windows' video: Watch here - EXCLUSIVE

Death Cab for Cutie frontman Benjamin Gibbard’s solo debut Former Lives is one of the prettiest, most elegantly constructed indie records of the season. It doesn’t stray far from what people are used to hearing from him, which may be why he has taken it upon himself to lampoon his image in the new, sharply funny video for “Teardrop Windows.”

The clip, which co-stars comedian and Bunk host Kurt Braunohler, finds Gibbard looking to reinvent himself for the sake of selling a few more copies of Former Lives. But of course, in his particularly wry way, Gibbard can’t help but be a sweet guy.

Former Lives is in stores now, and Gibbard’s tour for the album kicks off tonight in Minneapolis. Check out the tour dates, as well as the exclusive premiere of the video for “Teardrop Windows,” below.

Watch Swedish metal band Graveyard's 'Endless Night' video - EXCLUSIVE

Sure, most of the great Scandinavian metal bands hail from Norway, but don’t count out that country’s neighbor. Sweden is no slouch when it comes to the devil’s music — especially Graveyard, whose new album Lights Out lands on these shores on November 6 (you can pre-order the CD here and the digital version here).

Taking cues from the swampier, bluesier side of Black Sabbath, Graveyard have released two previous albums of impeccably scuzzy rock full of caustic spasms and thick fuzz. They continue that tradition on Lights Out, which turns up the throbbing low end and gives frontman Joakim Nilsson extra space to croon and bellow.

“Endless Night” is as good an entry point as any for this quartet of bearded tundra-dwellers, so check out the exclusive premiere of the freewheeling, head-tripping video below: READ FULL STORY
