Video: Pearl Jam Talk with Judd Apatow + others about ‘Lightning Bolt’

posted by Oscar September 27, 2013

Storied band Pearl Jam sat down with Judd Apatow, Carrie Brownstein (of Portlandia and the band Sleater-Kinney), Mark Richards (World Champ surfer), and Steve Gleason (former NFL safety) to talk about the band’s new studio album, Lightning Bolt. Directed by Danny Clinch, this short documentary gives us a look into the new album and the seasoned Rockers look (and sound) like they’re delivering a really solid product.

Not sure why I didn’t post this sooner, but the band’s latest single “Sirens” is a real beauty.  When I first heard it on the radio (the radio?!) I could have sworn this was a deep cut from the band during the 90’s. See the video for that song below. Continue Reading

Folk Rock sensation Jake Bugg played an excellent set at Lolla this past weekend under the shining sun and the beautiful Chicago skylime in the background. The Petrillo stage was filled with tons of fans as they witnessed the teenage Brit play live renditions of “Two Fingers” (shown above), “Seen It All,” “Lightning Bolt” and an awesome cover of Neil Young’s classic, “Hey Hey, My My.”

Review: Jake Bugg- ‘Jake Bugg’

Around this time a year ago I was out in London on my first trip to the Old World and finally in the country that gave the world some of my favorite artists of all time. I had a car for a couple of days and I really wanted to get into some of the local scene and so I did my best to find something on the radio but to my luck I had a bit too much trouble flipping through Electro and Hindi music stations that at some point I just quit and connected my iPhone. Nowadays, I’ve gotten what I wanted back then and I have started getting into the music of one of the most talked-about indie musicians out of the UK and one of my favorite artists at this moment, 19-year old Jake Bugg of Nottingham.

His self-titled debut album is an excellent example that simple songs with a lot of heart and minor studio production have a lot more to offer than your typical Top 40 track would. At least in every other sense besides getting you on the dancefloor at the club.
