Death Cab For Cutie - Stay Young, Go Dancing

Death Cab For Cutie released a video this week for their newest single, Stay Young, Go Dancing, my favorite song from this year's Codes & Keys. The video follows a man and woman through the years, starting as an aged couple and ending with them as children. It seems a bit too VH1 and will no doubt lead even more fans to complain about their path to "Dad Rock". But for every "New Year", they had a "I'll Follow You Into The Dark", so this really shouldn't be too much of a surprise. For some reason the line, "Lost in a maze, of a thousand rainy days" stuck with me and I'm just passing along a really good song. They are about to start a Fall tour with the closest show in Champaign, October 1st. The video was directed by Claire Carre.

Gigamesh - When You're Dancing (RAC Remix)

It took a while, but the remix of the year has arrived. Gigamesh is a Producer/DJ from Minneapolis who is set to release the Gigamesh EP in October. For those of you that get your tunes from Beatport, they have an exclusive release on the 4th, followed by a full release on the 18th. It's good to hear that Prince isn't the only funky thing coming out of Minnesota. His stuff is heavy on synth and I'm loving the horns. RAC in typical fashion brings a little bit of flavor and make a stellar track even better. Described as "Scifi Space Disco", this is absolutely killing it right now...

George Harrison - Living In The Material World

It seems as though the "quiet one" has a few things to say. A new documentary directed by Martin Scorsese about George Harrison will debut in two parts, October 5th and 6th, exclusively on HBO."George Harrison: Living In The Material World" packs new interviews, videos and performances into an epic 3 1/2 hour film. I've very interested to see the second half, as the first half ends with The Beatles breakup. Aside from releasing well received solo albums, he was a member of the Traveling Wilburys, produced a Monty Python film (I had no idea) and put together the unbelievable Concert for Bangladesh. For those of you without cable, the film will be released October 10th on DVD, Blu-Ray and a Blu-Ray Deluxe Edition that includes a cd and book. Is there a better song than "Here Comes The Sun"? Thanks, George.
