The Black Keys

The Black Keys have released some footage from their time on Austin City Limits. The first clip seen above shows them perform the heavy Blues number “Weight Of Love” off their latest album, Turn Blue.
This is stuff that shows off their roots excellently, while still proving to be contemporary.

Also from the episode airing this coming Saturday, the band and the legendary series released the videos showing the band performing other TB stand-outs like “Fever” and past hit “Little Black Submarines,” both of those awesome performances are shown below.

From those not appearing on the episode, web exclusives premiering on Rolling Stone include “Howling For You” and “Too Afraid To Love” can also be found after the jump. Read More →

We finally have the trailer for the sequel of Seth McFarlane’s critically-acclaimed movie about a talking teddybear. For Ted 2 we see McFarlane reprise his role as the titular character (along with writing and directing the whole damn thing) team up again with Mark Wahlberg, joined by stars like Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson(s), and even Patriots QB Tom Brady.

See the trailer above.

Foo Fighters -Logo

Footage has surfaced from the Foo Fighters’ recent concert in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, which featured a special surprise from the storied band. Dave Grohl and company made use of their time on the stage of mythical Maracanã to cover Rush’s “Tom Sawyer.”

The song is no easy task, but the Foos performed a good rendition serving as a decent tribute to the Canadian Prog-Rockers. See that performance above.

(CoS)

Today the Mexican National Team unveiled their new adidas-designed kits for 2015. The new jerseys for “El Tri” were unveiled under the new “There Will Be Haters” campaign the German sportswear company is running, which somewhat explains the approach to the new look.

Famously known for their traditional green jersey, white shorts, red socks uniform, the new “home” kit is black with fringes of green, including green team crest, plus the green-white-red color scheme of the national flag at the bottom of the jersey. The “away” uniform somewhat stays true to its history with a white jersey featuring the new crest design.

Mexico unveiled the new kits that they will sport as they compete in this year’s edition of the Gold Cup and Copa América.

The new kits will be available through all adidas portals starting February 2. Check out a gallery below. Read More →

Jack White

Jack White’s set to culminate a string of US tour dates at the end of the month with a mammoth show at Madison Square Garden, so before that, he put on a concert in Nashville that’s worth talking about on its own.

At last night’s show at the Bridgestone Arena, White pulled a couple of strings to bring out some very special guests. White took to the encore to bring out his band The Raconteurs to perform together for the first time three years, going on to play “Salute Your Solution” and “Steady, As She Goes.” After that reunion, White welcomed to the stage Loretta Lynn to perform a duet of “Portland, Oregon” and “Whispering Sea.”

Check out the Loretta Lynn performances below. Read More →

Key & Peele

They back! Key & Peele have released a new clip from their forthcoming Super Bowl Special in which you see the comedians revive their sketch naming the best football players from the east and the west introducing themselves before the big game. Once again, this thing is hilarious and the names couldn’t more ridiculous. See it above.

The Key & Peele Super Bowl Special premieres January 30 at 10/9c on Comedy Central.

Nirvana_logo

Nirvana’s infamous Buenos Aires, Argentina concert has been uncovered and now available to see via YouTube. During that 1992 show, Kurt Cobain and co. took the stage of the Estadio José Amalfitani to play before a crowd of 50,000 in the midst of Nevermind‘s success.

During their performance, Cobain mocked the attendees by playing mostly rarities and would tease the intro to “Smells Like Teen Spirit” before switching to another song and never actually playing the hit. They even played the rare “Nobody Knows I’m New Wave,” a Nirvana song that ultimately never saw a release. Check out the newly surfaced concert above.

john-frusciante-2015

John Frusciante kept a pretty low profile after leaving Red Hot Chili Peppers, sticking mostly to guest work with acts like The Mars Volta and Duran Duran. Today Frusciante has announced his latest endeavor, now working as an Electronic music artist under the name Trickfinger.

This new project will see him release a full-on album due out April 7th via Acid Test. Hear the first taste, “After Below,” now below. Read More →

Charli XCX Japanese Headband

Charli XCX has recorded versions of her hits “Boom Clap” and “Break the Rules” in Japanese for that country’s version of Sucker and today Warner Music Japan has posted snippets of the reworked songs, featuring the lyrics in Japanese. Given the Pop aesthetic of the originals, this almost sounds like if they were always meant to be produced in Japanese.

According to Rolling Stone, J-Pop singer and model Yasuda Rei helped create the Japanese lyrics for “Boom Clap,” and “Break the Rules” was done up by singer Hiromi.

The Japanese edition of Sucker is due out on February 18th. Check out the snippets after the jump. Read More →
