White Denim are well-overdue a place in our current playlist, staying on pretty solid rotation since we got wind of them. The soaring mini-extended jam of Heart From Us All makes the cut. Check it out on their Myspace, or Last FM.
Josh Grier and Jeremy Hanson of Tapes 'n Tapes (check out our old interview) have got a new stripped down, minimalist band - Ginko. Debut album Manopause is available on iTunes now, or you can stream it in its entirety over at Soundcloud.
Video for the single Faded Glory below.
Of course! Looking to tap that Dealey Plaza/X-Men fan crossover market, this trailer for the upcoming X-Men time travelganza puts Magneto up on the grassy knoll back in 1963. More at The Bent Bullet.
Decent bonus round from Gravity - Jonas Cuarón's short featuring the other side of Sandra Bullock's radio conversation.
Great short from the @kaurimultimedia team.
First look at Jim Jarmusch's gothy vampires: Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddlestone and Mia Wasikowska.

"They can't shut him down. And they can't cool him off." Got a solid 1.5 stars in 1985 from Roger Ebert, who noted
"Tuff Turf" is the worst teenage exploitation movie since "Where the Boys Are". It even has an equally wimpy hero, a young actor named James Spader who seems so laid back and introspective and sensitive and zonked that it is occasionally all he can to do rouse himself to the level of speech.
Something to get you in the mood for Parkland
Quite enjoying this screensaver trend in pre-release promos. New Broken Bells album After The Disco out January 2014
Extreme snowboarding/surfing/ice fishing/sledging arctic expedition.
@WhiteDenimMusic keeping things Pretty Green on Late Night With David Letterman. Tight.
Michel Gondry animates/interviews/documents Noam Chomsky
The X-men get into flares and kipper ties for next summer's time-travelling mash-up. The always epic Thin Red Line score gives the trailer some gravitas.
More comic book nonsense from Marvel. Looks fine, but surely they're going to run out of steam sometime...

New Wes Anderson film - complete with new font.
Wes Anderson's THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL recounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend.
Starring Ralph Fiennes, F. Murray Abraham, Edward Norton, Mathieu Amalric, Saoirse Ronan, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Léa Seydoux, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Schwartzman, Jude Law, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel, Tom Wilkinson, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, and introducing Tony Revolori.
Beefy solo track from Massive Attack's 3D with Congolese musician Jupiter.
Says 3D: "In 2007 I went to the Congo with Africa Express. I was lucky to hang out and listen to some pretty amazing musicians, Jupiter among them.
"This track is built with an unknown modular synth from Munich, a Moog and a Vermona drum machine, with help from Euan Dickinson and Tim Goldsworthy. And mixes by Bruno Ellingham. I wanted to mirror the energy and message in the song without complicating it. The b-side is a more relaxed and melodic using a Prophet 5 and a jupiter 8.
It is the second release on the Battle Box label, which is made and distributed through The Vinyl Factory. Paul Insect has designed the covers and label art. Everything is screenprinted and limited in number."
Hippies rocking out in what looks like an underground nuclear bunker in the Grand Canyon - what's not to like? Fanfare is Mr Wilson's follow-up to the mellow Laurel Canyon vibes of 2011's Gentle Spirit.
"I'm working on a gravity belt"
Video for "Kick Against The Pricks" below.
Santa Cruz have their 40th anniversary coming up, and a tie in with Cons is one of the spin offs. Jason Jessee explains.
Add the Mothra twins and we're in.
David O Russell is raiding the 70s dressing up box for his new art heist con man thriller.
Spin has Steve Albini's pitch to Nirvana to produce "In Utero". Full of his usual charm.
Do not adjust your set, this is not an Onion spoof. Can't wait for Episode VII!
Loving this. Koyaanisqatsi meets Welcome to Hell with @jamiethomas and the heavy beards of @fallenfootwear. "Road Less Travelled" is online in chunks at @transworldskate, or get the whole thing on iTunes.
Via @coslive. "It’s easy to picture Friday Night Lights hero Tim Riggins cruising around Dillon, TX with this one blaring from his truck."
Another single of the forthcoming Pearl Jam album Lightning Bolt. They're getting more and more like the 90s band people think they are.
In space, everyone can hear Ray Donovan mutter under his breath.
Stallone vs DeNiro. What could possibly go wrong.
More Breaking Bad nonsense to tide us over until Monday... Spoilers BITCH!
Looks like this wacked-out indie film shot illicitly on location at Disney World will be getting a release after all...
Jam on it! J-J-Jam on it! Documentary looking at the influence of the Incredible Bongo Band's classic version of Apache on hip hop.
SAMPLE THIS is the true story of how unknown music producer Michael Viner brought together the greatest studio musicians of the 1970's to create an album that ultimately went nowhere…until the summer of 1973, when DJ Herc took the percussion breaks from that obscure album and extended them by playing them back to back. His beats became an anthem on the streets of the Bronx and ultimately the genre of Hip Hop, becoming one of the most sampled tracks in history and used by artists from Will Smith and Missy Elliott to Amy Winehouse and Jay-Z.
New HBO show starting in January, with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson playing bad cop/worse cop in the deep south.
New AF album on the way (check the map here), with James Murphy manning the desk on the first single, Bowie on backing vocals (apparently), and some very LCD-sounding no-reverb drums. All starts dropping at 9pm US time tonight (9/9/9pm geddit)
UPDATE: here's the video from Anton Corbjin, and here's the iTunes link
It's Jesse Eisenberg x 2 in this drama from The IT Crowd's Richard Ayoade. Premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival
