Ray LaMontagne Stops Concert While Couple Continues Talking In The Front Row, Refuses To Resume Until They Leave

The number one unwritten rule of attending any live performance is making sure you show the person/group performing a little respect. Put down your phone, stop talking amongst yourselves, and become one with the event taking place all around you. Simple, right? Not for one West Michigan couple.

Last night, Ray LaMontagne took his summer tour to Frederick Meijer Gardens on the outskirts of Grand Rapids, MI. In the middle of his performance, LaMontagne noticed a couple in the front row who refused to stop talking to one another. He continued to perform for a short time, but ultimately brought …

Pharrell Miley Cyrus

Watch Pharrell’s “Come Get It Bae” Video Starring Miley Cyrus

America is still undergoing the heavy airplay of Pharrell‘s “Happy” (and the video of it bringing him to tears), but in the meantime, the music icon is pushing his new G I R L cut “Come Get It Bae.” In his music video for the single, Pharrell Williams brings a slew of models on camera to show off the female figure in a positive way — well, until Miley Cyrus shows up.

The straightforward video is a compilation of studio shoots featuring numerous women dancing and enjoying themselves while Pharrell shoots them on a Super 8 camera. Halfway …

Röyksopp & Robyn Share “Do It Again” Video

Swedish pop queen Robyn and Norwegian electronic duo Röyksopp teamed up earlier this year to release a collaborative mini-album titled Do It Again (out now on Dog Triumph, via Wall Of Sound/Cooking Vinyl). Back in April, they put out a lyric video for the album’s title track, but now the single has gotten a proper music video — and it was worth the wait.

Directed by Martin de Thurah, the “Do It Again” black and white video is a beautifully shot clip that takes place in Mexico and tells a huge story about oppression and rebuttal with the youth and …

Spoon

Watch Spoon’s Apocalyptic Video for “Do You”

In two weeks, Spoon will drop their brand new album, They Want My Soul – their first new record in four years. We’ve already heard (and been listening to relentlessly) album single “Do You,” and today we finally get a chance to watch accompanying footage in the song’s new music video.

Directed by Hiro Murai, the video is a beautiful, continuous long shot that paces around a car frontman Britt Daniel is driving. He’s bruised, battered, and clearly exhausted, but we don’t know the reason. Keep your eyes on the screen while he cruises down a burning Sunset Boulevard to …

The Dear Hunter

The Dear Hunter Debut New Song In Philadelphia [Video]

Now that Migrant is a thing of the past and frontman Casey Crescenzo has climbed the Billboard charts with his first symphony, the time has come for the almighty Dear Hunter to deliver new music. Recently, the group was performing at Union Transfer in Philadelphia, PA when they surprised the packed house with the premiere of a brand new, unreleased song that as far as we know has no title. We were not on site for the event, but thankfully one dedicated fan pulled out their phone and captured the entire performance on video for the world to enjoy. You …

Braid-Bang

Braid Go “Bang” In New Video

Braid emerged earlier this summer with their first album in 16 years. The Topshelf Records-released No Coast proved to be a winner, garnering positive reviews the internet over and giving newcomers to midwestern emo another fine release with which to educate themselves.

The video for their single “Bang” embraces its summer release, as a young girl in an underfurnished bedroom – very uncharacteristic for a girl her age – finds some fireworks exploding fantastically on her front lawn. Naturally, she has some fun with it. The video, directed by Max Moore, also does some nifty cutting in time with the …

The-New-Pornographers-War-on-the-East-Coast

A.C. Newman And Dan Bejar Go On A One-Take Stroll Through The “War On The East Coast”

The next step in the wonderful return of The New Pornographers is “War On The East Coast,” the follow-up to last months new single and title track “Brill Bruisers.”

Director Thom Glunt, a music video veteran, does a fine job of selling chaos, even with a small cast and minimal effects. People sprint in and out of billowing smoke, swinging bats on cars, illustrating chaos while A.C. Newman pines for his beloved “you.” Dan Bejar doesn’t get much to do, but he looks cool doing it, including driving off in the stolen car with the prominently displayed …

Weird-Al-Handy

Weird Al Has No Time For Excess, Gets Down, Dirty, And “Handy” In Riff On “Fancy”

It’s day four of Weird Al Watch. As we head into the halftime of his eight-videos-in-eight-days mission, Weird Al offers to get lacquer off our furniture and get those nasty heating bills down in “Handy,” which, unfortunately, doesn’t quite have the star-studded twist of yesterday’s “Foil.” “Handy” still serves up some quality Weird Al, as even the weirdest handyman agrees that duct tape fixes everything.

All of these songs – “Handy” joins “Tacky,” “Word Crimes,” and “Foil” – come off Weird Al’s now-available fourteenth album, Mandatory Fun. Glancing over the tracklist, it seems …

Slipknot

Slipknot Release Cryptic Video Teaser

Slipknot have never been the kind of band to do things the easy way, and even though rumors have been circling for months that a new album is on the way the metal icons from Iowa are not making it easy for fans to know just what it is they have planned for the future.

On Tuesday, a cryptic video began appearing online through Slipknot’s various social media accounts. The clip featured a compilation of haunting imagery along with the kind of horror movie sound effects that have become commonplace on the band’s albums. There was no text or audible …

Iggy Azalea Performs “Fancy” At ESPYs (Video)

Last night, Iggy Azalea took her unique stage presence to the set of the ESPYs for a one of a kind performance of “Fancy.” You may have missed the broadcast, but thanks to the power of YouTube her appearance is not lost forever.

It’s rare that an artist finds themselves battling against their own work at top 40 radio, but that is exactly the predicament Iggy finds herself in today. “Fancy” is still dominating radio play coast to coast, but Ariana Grande’s “Problem” has been picking up a lot of steam. Together, the songs create a miniature soundtrack to summer …

Eyesore Screenshot

Watch Walking Bicycles’ Dark Stop-Motion Music Video for “Eyesore”

Walking Bicycles‘ name may sound like a quaint twee-pop group, but get ten seconds into one of their songs and you’ll realize they’re anything but. The Chicago-based group stomp around with the type of gloom rock that hinges on noise, speed, and a little bit of pop, all while nodding to Siouxsie and the Banshees. Their newest single “Eyesore” off To Him That Wills The Way (out August 12 via Highwheel Records) is proof of that, and now we get a dark stop-motion music video to accompany it.

Directed and produced by Elliott Kaffee, and inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s …

Lykke-Li-Gunshot

Lykke Li Is Still Lonely In The “Gunshot” Video, Despite The Bikers And Twerkers

Lykke Li‘s stunning new album I Never Learn, is a heartbreaking one. I’ve gone on about this before, but it’s just that distressing. Someone give her a hug and a puppy.

A sense of foreboding continues in the video for “Gunshot,” an artsy take on either the apocalypse or a Wal-Mart parking lot. Lykke Li, trench-coated and troubled, dances and herky-jerks her way across the fissure-split expanse. She bounces like the saddest pinball from bums to grimy kids, zipping by a scrawny weightlifter (who has sacrificed his form for the sake of lifting a more impressive weight) and …
