Watch Phoenix’s “Chloroform” Music Video, Directed by Sofia Coppola

France electro-poppers Phoenix are back with a music video for “Chloroform” off their new album, Bankrupt! Frontman Thomas Mars asked his wife, Sofia Coppola, to direct. Ah, the perks of marrying a famous director. Before you get excited for part two, no, R. Kelly isn’t in this. Instead, the video is a musty, aging set of […]

Watch Miley Cyrus Cover Lana Del Rey’s “Summertime Sadness” on BBC Radio 1

BBC Radio 1‘s Live Lounge is probably my favorite Internet thing ever. Why? Every week they capture amazing performances in great quality. Each cover, acoustic rendition, and studio session fits quite nicely in my bootlegged library. Top notch stuff. One of the studio’s more recent videos is that of Miley Cyrus‘ Lana Del Rey cover. […]

M83 Previews ‘You and the Night’ Soundtrack With “Ali & Matthias”

“This score is really for lovers and ghosts,” reads M83’s Facebook page. “Ali & Matthias” certainly supports that assertion. The lilting tune is full of magic and whimsy, all pretty, nostalgic harmonies that will cause any heart to swell. It’s also very unmistakably a cut from a soundtrack. One can feel the camera zooming along […]

Those fans most devoted to the […]
