bon iver - fragile world

hope this hasn't been posted already.  i'm feeling a bit lazy and didn't feel like checking. if it is, it's a song worth having up twice anyway.

not sure if the video is a professional or a youtuber's work (or maybe both).  enjoy, dudes.

Super-Science: Friend or Foe?

The CERN Large Hadron Collider is still not back online, but when it's finally repaired I heard The Glorious Veins are going to play a concert underground in Geneva to commemorate its reopening. Sweet, huh?! That is, unless they get swallowed up by one of the miniature black holes created by the sub-atomic collisions. I really hope that doesn't happen, because then I'd have no more awesome rock and roll to go see. Here are The Glorious Veins playing their pre-apocalyptic thriller jam, Sub-Particle Supercollider.

P.S. Shake the room and start a fire, and also beware of underground rock and roll...

peter bjorn and john

so this is a cool song called "amsterdam" by peter, bjorn, and john, from their album writer's block.  the video is footage from the bbc series planet earth: while it's not an official music video, it's a pretty cool pairing of visual and audio content.

Gotta Love Lykke Li...

This girl sang and blew my mind. I don't know why I love these simple sounds so much. Doesn't matter, the video speaks for itself. Check her out on myspace or whatever, I think she's on tour right now.

My brother's band is not quite on Clapton's or Bela's level, but they're coming along nicely. By the way, whoever shot and edited this video did a really good job. So what do you all think? Here's one of their crowd-pleasers, 8 Ball. G's n babes, I give you The Glorious Veins...

a little more clapton...

so i know we just had some clapton on here a couple of months ago, but i came across this cover of "i shot the sheriff" and had to post it because it reminded me why i think clapton is so good: 

you look at him (especially in this particular video) and he looks so everyday, kind of nerdy even... he reminds me of what a floor manager at best buy would look like on vacation--white sneakers, khaki shorts, big, short-sleeved button-down.  

but then he just rips his guitar to shreds... in a way unlike anyone else.  i mention the way he looks because it's apparent that he doesn't need to enact an image to capture his audience like a lot of musicians do.  and not to diminish visual appearance as rock expression (because music has many visual counterparts to it), but, in clapton's case, he's just a relatively non-descript-looking dude who just lays down some serious jam here.  

hope you like the video now that i've said my piece.  thanks for reading all that.
