Sonic Youth ripped through “No Way” off their latest album The Eternal last night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Zach Schonfeld called the song, “a fantastic Thurston Moore contribution that seems to marry this record’s driving rock foundation to Rather Ripped’s vivid melodicism.”

Unlikely collaborators Moby and David Lynch put their heads together for a cool black and white animated video that actually catapults the bald electronica guru into relevancy again. In turn, Moby lent the director a hand with his new album Fox, Bat, Strategy: A Tribute to Dave Jaurequi, out June 30. Yes, David Lynch is about to drop an album!

Just came across these two clips of my favorite band (BeauSoleil) playing at my favorite record store, the Louisiana Music Factory. They are stellar as always. Michael Doucet and his mates are an American musical treasure. Sample a few songs off the Lafayette, Louisiana Cajun band’s latest fine offering Alligator Purse. By the way, if you’re ever in New Orleans, you really need to visit this record shop. It’s the place to find that needle in the haystack for Cajun, jazz and blues lovers. Plus, you may even get a free bottle of Abita, as they often are doing beer promotions there.

St. Vincent recently sat down for an unplugged performance with Lake Fever Productions. She claims to not own an acoustic guitar… scary way to start an unplugged performance, but she carries it off admirably.
