New Track Rundown

Believe it or not, bands are still releasing music on the internet (?!) and I've compiled the best of it here. Another surprise is that I am including a song by a rap-rock project (?!) established by the guys from ingenious blues-rock duo The Black Keys.

Blakroc's self-titled debut LP is out on November 27 and features an impressive guest list: Mos Def, RZA, Raekwon, Q-Tip, Ludacris, Pharoahe Monch, M.O.P.'s Billy Danze, Jim Jones, and the late Ol' Dirty Bastard. Together, the dudes are establishing their own label, Blakroc, to release the album. Check out a trailer for the record with Rae reading lyrics off of his Blackberry here. The cover is the image featured above.


After the Fall – "Collar City"

Blakroc – "Ain't Nothing Like You (Hoochie Coo)" (The Black Keys hip-hop project ft. Mos Def!)

Massive Attack – "Pray for Rain" (ft. Tunde Adebimpe of TV on the Radio)

Julian Casablancas (of The Strokes) – "11th Dimension"

Phoenix – "Love Like A Sunset" (Animal Collective remix)

Like the material from their first album which I reviewed, this new song by prog/tech metal virtuosos Lye by Mistake will probably go unnoticed. It's a shame because sweet Jesus is this some incredible guitar work! Check out the new song courtesy of the great people at Lambgoat:

Lye by Mistake – "Invincible Badass"


Nirvana – "Scoff (Live at Pine Street Theatre)" (Previously unreleased Nirvana!)

Alec Ounsworth (of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah) – "That is Not My Home (After Bruegel)"

Doomriders (members of Cave In and Converge) – "Lions"

The Smith Westerns – "Imagine, Pt. 3"

Gaza – "Widowless House"

Volcano Choir – "Island, IS"

Basement Jaxx – "Feeling's Gone"

The Black Lips – "Let It Grow"

Depeche Mode - Hole To Feed directed by Eric Wareheim of Tim & Eric

The Dead Weather – "I Cut Like a Buffalo"

Kings of Convenience – "Boat Behind"

Castanets – "My Heart"

Jucifer – "The Mountain"

A while back I posted old videos of Sunny Day Real Estate performing "Seven", the pivotal track from their 1994 classic album Diary, to celebrate their recently announced reunion. They have now played several reunion shows (including one that I unfortunately missed in Boston at the House of Blues) and have appeared on Jimmy Fallon. Below is the incredible evidence that they haven't lost a step:
