Watch Interpol Perform “My Desire” on Conan

Last night, indie rock act Interpol stepped on Conan’s stage to continue supporting El Pintor, their sturdy new LP that reclaims their early 2000s sound. The New York group have had quite a year, from their Governors Ball set to a new tour and getting caught in a snowstorm, yet somehow, despite all of the year’s hectic ups and downs, their performance of “My Desire” is a bright reminder that Interpol have pretty much nailed this year. Check it out after the jump.

While you’re waiting for the commercials to end, catch up on the band’s most recent release: “…

Passion Pit’s Michael Angelakos Performs “Sleepyhead” Acoustic in His Bed

Passion Pit have been silent throughout 2014, likely at work on a new album, but today we get to see frontman Michael Angelakos singing once again. The band’s creator took to YouTube today to share an intimate acoustic rendition of their hit song “Sleepyhead” — from his very own bed.

The Manners cut gets such a stylish reveal thanks to MyMusicRx’s Bedstock event, a mission to make the world’s first ongoing music festival where artists use their bedrooms as makeshift venues. The new online festival hopes to deliver “the healing power of music” to kids and teens while raising …

UTG INTERVIEW: Jeff Bridges Discusses His Career(s) and New Live Album

Jeff Bridges really needs no introduction, but for the sake of the uninitiated, he’s an Oscar-winning actor with numerous other talents on his curriculum vitae, including, but not limited to, photography, painting and songwriting. Many likely remember his turn as Otis “Bad” Blake in 2009′s multi-award winning Crazy Heart, but Bridges’ musical journey began long before that film graced the silver screen.

We were recently fortunate enough to have the opportunity to speak with Bridges about his careers in both film and music and the challenges of balancing the two, but we wanted to focus on his newest album, …

The Simpsons Cat Stevens

Watch The Simpsons Pay Homage to Cat Stevens

So far there have been 26 seasons of The Simpsons, and they never fail to come up with a clever “couch gag” in every episode — one of the many reasons why they’re still running strong. There have been art deco takes, spoofs on “The Harlem Shake” and Breaking Bad, and directorial debuts from Banksy and Don Hertzfeld. The newest addition to their reel? A very yellow take on Cat Stevens’ iconic 1970 album Tea For The Tillerman.

The clip sees The Simpsons replicating the album artwork while other Springfield residents act out a literal interpretation …

Joyce Manor Clash With Concertgoer Over Stage Dives In Houston (VIDEO)

Joyce Manor have been making a lot of headlines this week for essentially taking a stance against the proliferation of stage dives, especially at shows where they happen to be performing. These headlines apparently did not reach every concertgoer in attendance at the band’s show in Houston last night, September 26, because mid-way through the group’s set the entire performance was put on hold to address one person vocalist/guitarist Barry Johnson could not stand. Lucky for us, the whole thing was captured on video.

Here’s the scene: Joyce Manor were performing to a packed house when one young man decided …

Watch Foo Fighters Tear Up A Small Venue As The Holy Shits

I think it’s safe to say that Dave Grohl is a badass. He has been in the music industry for a long time, and is in one of the most respected rock bands in the world (Foo Fighters, of course). You’d think all that would get to his head, but from what we’ve seen time and time again, it most certainly has not.

A prime example of how awesome he can be: his band played a secret show at a teeny tiny venue in England the other night. Not only that, but they were on the lineup as …
