Justin Vernon and Volcano Choir return with new album and tour

Justin Vernon's eclectic project Volcano Choir has been recording the follow-up to their debut album "Unmap" for the last three years. The new collection entitled "Repave" due out in September is the culmination of hours in Vernon's April Base recording studio in Fall Creek, just outside Eau Claire. We have a snippet of Volcano Choir's new material off the album and a look at April Base Studios in a preview video. The new track sounds more accessible than some of the ambient experimental songs from "UnMap."


Watch comedians Tim and Eric pay tribute to the goatee

Tim and Eric

Our favorite comedic duo, Tim and Eric, with an ode to the male hipster badge of honor, the goatee. It's all part of YouTube Comedy Week. If you haven't seen Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, creators of the Adult Swim television series Tom Goes to the Mayor and Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! or their movie Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie, you don't know what you're missing. The sketch comedy cult heroes also collaborate with Michael Cera, Sarah Silverman and Reggie Watts in their own web-based comedy YouTube channel JASH. Eric plays an overzealous percussionist to Tim's deadpan lyrics in this tribute to facial hair.


Watch The National Sea of Love video

The National

The National keeping it low budget on the Sea of Love video. The band performs in a corner of a studio, complete with an air conditioning unit in the background and a sixth member playing air guitar. The new album Trouble Will Find Me comes out on May 21st.


Welcome to the world of Black Moth Super Rainbow

Black Moth Super Rainbow

Black Moth Super Rainbow are not your ordinary musicians by a long shot. Eclectic, cultish, seemingly random thoughts collated through an analog electronic funnel. Black Moth Super Rainbow thrives on almost sinister song lyrics, using spacey psychedelia as a backdrop to a world that you did not know existed.
