New video from IceAge’s amazing debut album New Brigade features a collage of live clips from the band’s chaotic US tour. Also, bowling. Hands down my favorite new band. And my favorite album of the year so far.
This is a few days old, but so worth watching if: A. You’re a Tom Waits fan or B. You like awesome things. I can’t wait for the new record. Also, I can’t believe it’s been seven years since Waits has released an album.

The most puzzling aspect of this piece is that Peter Murphy listens to Metallica.
My favorite clip from this past weekend’s Reading Festival to surface so far. Love Cocker’s strutting around the stage. [via The Awl]
Fascinating interview and exploration of electronic music pioneer Vince Clarke’s home studio in Portland, Maine. First of all, Maine? Can’t seem to get my head around why the man who founded Depeche Mode, Yaz, and Erasure lives in Maine, but that’s of no importance once you get a peek inside his house. His home studio is a gigantic room full of vintage analog synths, sequencers, and drum machines. It is staggering in its meticulously obsessive completeness. Truly unreal.
