Gnarls Barkley - Crazy (video), Ecko graffitis Air Force one, Adidas Pink video, The Go Team docu, more
- What do you see in this Rorschach? I see symmetric images of Gnarls Barkley singing: Gnarls Barkley - Crazy (video)
- Mark Ecko graffitis Air Force Once (video)
By his own admission, this is fake. But it's pretty well done if you ask me.
- Adidas viral video: Adidas Pink
This viral video by Charlie White (photographer and director of Interpol's 'Evil' video) is rather freaky. No, this has nothing to do with the artist Pink. However, it does feature music by Gary Weeks.
- The Go! Team: Ian & Ninja give insight into the creative process
- One Eyed Stanley has a New York show. I hadn't heard of them until they e-mailed me, but perhaps I should have, because they are terrific! Good luck rockin' Brooklyn, guys.
Check out this 2 minute clip (stream full songs on MySpace):
One-Eyed Stanley - Tolerance
- Titanic Two: The Trailer
Don't worry; it's not real. Just some pretty incredible editing.

- Everybody Loves Irene - Memento Mori
Everybody Loves Irene - Gravity Always Wins
Who knew that a band from Indonesia could produce such excellent downtempo tunes? Yohanna Erine Putri delivers passionate vocals that eeerily conjure Portishead's Beth Gibbons (minus Beth's tendency for whininess); she is backed by a mesmerizing electronic indie pop band. A lot of other goodies on their myspace, including a Misftis cover. Wow!
- The Blow - The Love I Crave (strategy remix)
I am a sucker for vocoderized vocals. A mediocre song can be considerably improved and a good song can become legendary with the right use of vocoder (i.e. California Love). "The Love I Crave" dispenses with a vocal harmony in favor of a robotic vocoder harmony; I'm in love. (Not sure where I got this tune from, but thank you! Re-upped for your listening enjoyment)
- Uffie - Pop the Glock
1. Take Audio Two's 'Top Billin'
2. Decompose the beats into a minimalist background track
3. Demolish then regenerate the vocals into a funky electro vocoderized rhyme, add a touch of Robyn flava
Thanks to Fluxblog for this great track.

- Junkie XL - Today (video)
This video is pretty funny, as long as that dude is NOT your barber. They have nice remixes of Coldplay's Talk and Editor's Camera on their myspace.
- Check out Aggro's mash of Junkie XL with Kelly Clarkson
- R. Star - Losing Your Memory
Ok, we get it. R.Star. Not so subtle. Wait, but that's the lead singer's name. Well, notwithstanding his cheesy choice of band name, he certainly has the talent to be a star.

- Aphex Twin embeds pictures in some of his audio tracks.
Say what? Check out the demon face he hides in track 2 on Windowlicker.

I swear this is not a late April Fool's joke. Although it is in the April issue of Spin. Hmm...

New Massive Attack video, New Drive By Truckers MP3, New Clipse feat. Pharrell MP3, New Josh Rouse MP3, not April Foolin'!
- Massive Attack - Live With Me (video)
This is the video for Massive Attack's new single, "Live With Me", a moving, almost heartwrenching love song with powerful vocals from underappreciated Chicago soul legend and Curtis Mayfield's childhood friend, Terry Callier. The video was directed by Jonathan Glazer (of 'Sexy Beast', 'Birth', and MTV video fame). In the video, a depressed and suicidal young lady gets absolutely trashed and then...
Massive Attack's album "Collected" comes out April 4th and features all their hits, this new single 'Live With Me', and a bonus disc featuring new tracks, un-released material, rarities, remixes, and all of their videos including some live footage.
Massive Attack - Collected
- Drive-By Truckers - Gravity's Gone
Put your dancing shoes on for another twangy, angsty anti-love song from the Drive By Truckers; from their new album, "A Blessing and a Curse", which comes out April 18.
Drive By Truckers - A Blessing and a Curse
- Clipse feat. Pharrell - Me Too
You'd think that a Clipse track produced by the Neptunes would rock a little harder than this. Their next album comes out this summer, maybe.
- Josh Rouse - Quiet Town
Josh Rouse's upbeat ode to Altea, his new Spanish home. Perfect for a sunny day picnic.
Josh Rouse - Subtitulo
- Prescription for soft drink sales: Dr. Pepper will use mash-ups!
Specifically, mash-ups featuring some combination of Will Smith, Kiss, EMP, and Cyndi Lauper. Mmmm, k. This is not an April Fool's joke.
- Spin reviews Guns N' Roses - Chinese Democracy
April Fool's! This it their prank, not mine. I was gonna have more fake entries, but I figured it would be quite passe with everyone jumping into the mix trying to be clever. I'm sure you appreciate the music more anyway.
