This week, we present to you a Roundup of musical and visual diversity. It begins with the footage of a recent, live collaboration of 90s rock gods, Grohl and Veder (talk about a Big Fish tale!). Wesley Eisold and Cold Cave then smother you in gloom with "Villains Of The Moon". We rip you out of the darkness with Herman Dune and Jon Hamm's heartwarming video for "Tell Me Something I Don't Know". Thao & Mirah entrench themselves in the 80s for their xylophone-heavy cover of "Love Is A Battlefield". And finally, you're taken to a round-table seance in ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead's "Summer Of All Dead Souls". Enjoy the ride!

Mike Watt, Eddie Vedder, Pat Smear, and Dave Grohl- Live in Seattle

Mike Watt wrapped up his show in Seattle with a menagerie of rock legends, providing a historic collaboration for their beloved home city.



Cold Cave- "Villains Of The Moon"

"Villains Of The Moon", the coming-of-age highlight of Cold Cave's latest, Cherish The Light Years, was an ideal resolution to Wesley Eisold's sonic narrative. Surprisingly polytonal in melody, the synth-goth drone is illuminated by its inspiring chorus.

The song's music video, aptly directed by Sebastian Mlyarnski, is glossed with gloom. Don't be fooled by Eisold's Eric Draven-like mystique (they're pigeons, not crows).

Herman Dune- "Tell Me Something I Don't Know"


In the video, Jon Hamm picks up a hitchhiker, who happens to be a tiny, blue yeti. Attempting to explain the outlandish dynamics would be fruitless, but halfway through the bizarreness, Herman Dune chimes in with their undeniably charming melody.

Don Draper needs a Lucky Strike. He's getting delusional...



Thao & Mirah- "Love Is A Battlefield"

They reveal the recording of their cover for "Love Is A Battlefield", exposing a flawless and endlessly intriguing take on the song complete with low register note endings and multi-player participation on a xylophone. Mirah's sweetly serene vocals actually provide an excellent contrast to original artist Pat Benatar's blast of power, an interpretation that molds fantastically with the chiming instrumentation.



Trail Of Dead- "Summer Of All Dead Souls"

The energetic, ritualistic chant is used as a backdrop of a recreation of a horrifying classic. Though Nosferatu doesn't make an appearance, he's supplemented by Trail Of Dead's adrenaline-laced track of horror.
