You know, nobody's perfect. We all make mistakes here and there. While most of the time we keep our ears to the ground and don't let things fall through the cracks, there are extremely rare occasions when we admit we let something important escape our all seeing eye. A lot happened in the music world this week. Tours were announced, singles were released, and guitar strings were shredded. Here's a list of the ten most awesome things that happened this week. We covered most of it, but as the saying goes, people who live in glass houses should shut the hell up... or something like that.
America's sweetheart Sarah Bareilles serenaded a lucky group of unsuspecting Sleep No More goers, and we were there to film it. The show showcases how funny she is, "It's a switching of the gears, but just fuckin' drink more and have a good time." And to answer your question before you ask, yes, it includes the greatest song ever made, "Love Song."
In what is in my opinion the coolest piece of news this week, one of my favorite bands TV On The Radio released a new single via Soundcloud. The Brooklynites unveiled this song at the British festival they curated in May, All Tomorrow's Parties, but it's the first piece of music they've put together without their bassist Gerard Smith, who died in 2011 of lung cancer.
The Orwells released this awesome video for their rebellious song "Who Needs You." You can also watch these Chicago boys tear it up at Hype Hotel.
The historic Hoboken venue Maxwell's hosted its final party Wednesday night, and our managing editor here at Baeble, Matt Howard was there to experience all the nostalgia he could handle. Here's a cool documentary all about the spot.
City and Colour released this video for an alternate version of their song "Thirst." Spoiler alert: you're going to get really well acquainted with the contours of Dallas Green's face.
ZZ Ward's booming voice doesn't get lost in her new video for "365 Days" which was released earlier this week.
Justin Timberlake is at it again, and released his video for "Take Back The Night" this week. I hate to admit it, but I can't help but think that JT is really, really cool.
We released our full interview and outdoor session with Foals, one of the best live acts today. They strip down their sound to the bare essentials here, but still do awesome versions of "My Number" and "Moon."
