Svefn g englar

Lovely video of Sigur Ros performing "Svefn g englar" in Philadelphia on September 22, 2001. One of my favorite songs by the band. I hope to see them live someday!

The Speedies

The Speedies were truly great at crafting tasty power pop new wave nuggets. This vintage video of the Brooklyn group from 1979 playing "Let Me Take Your Photo" captures them in rare form.

A Little Touch of Schmilsson

Great vintage footage of Harry Nilsson singing "Everybody's Talkin'" on TV in 1969.

Earth, Wind, and Daft Punks

Wow. Earth, Wind and Fire and Daft Punk - two great tastes that taste great together!

I love this home video of two guys covering "Digital Love" and "September". Bonus points for adding in some beat boxing at the end.

See me, feel me, touch me, heal me

Forget the iPod Touch. Tenori-On has arrived! (Well, if you live in the UK that is...)

Norwegian rock band Superfamily sounds just like Hall & Oates. I can't get enough.

Have spacesuit, will travel?

Can you survive in space without a spacesuit?

Naked Penguins

Feeling creative? Penguin Books has launched a new website called My Penguin where they're selling classic titles with blank covers for you to make your mark upon. Be sure to check out their gallery of submitted covers. My favorites are the covers created for "Crime and Punishment."

File Under Unreal

Guaranteed to be the most incredible, beautiful photo you've seen today.

If This Ain't Love

I picked up Nicole Willis & The Soul Investigators' new album "Keep Reachin' Up" from emusic last month and since then it has become one of my most heavily listened to albums this summer. Willis and her band have a classy, classic soul style that I really dig. Check out the beautifully shot video of album standout "If This Ain't Love (Don't Know What Is)."
