You may have already seen this video since it has been making the rounds on the interwebs this week, but if not you are in for a real treat. OK Go made their break into the mainstream in large part thanks to the amazingly creative videos for "A Million Ways" and "Here It Goes Again". Well when their latest album, Of the Blue Colour of the Sky, came out January 12th the expectations were set pretty high for a new video. They did not disappoint.
You can download an MP3 of this version of "This Too Shall Pass" free on their homepage.
Also check out this very interesting letter written by lead singer Damian Kulash about the messed up nature of the current music industry.

Very quickly I would like to thank everyone that has download the Live Music Podcast App and shown your support for this podcast. I hope you are very happy with your new purchase and I look forward to bringing you more quality live music to play through it.
Well here it finally is, the podcast I have been hyping up for a full week on my site. Hopefully you will agree that it was well deserving of that.
When I heard the news last spring that Jack White would not be touring with The Raconteurs in the coming year I was deeply confused and disappointed as a huge fan of theirs. I was also a little skeptical of the new band he had formed with him moving from guitar to drums and leaving the majority of the singing duties to Alison Mosshart of The Kills. Well that feeling of worry evaporated very quickly with my first listen of their debut album Horehound and having heard and seen some of their live performances I have now fallen madly in love with the new sound. At this point I will follow Jack White to a polka band if need be, because he has an incredible knack for surrounding himself with immensely talented musicians. Without further adieu I present to you from their November 17, 2009 concert in Brooklyn, NY, The Dead Weather.

I looked at a lot of audience recordings before deciding on the perfect show for the podcast. The following concert was a very excellent recording and almost made the cut. One thing about this particular recording that gave it some extra bonus points was the creativity the taper used in describing the band. Unfortunately he left out "woman of my dreams" next to Alison Mosshart's description.
Allison Mosshart - lead vocals, guitar, tamborine, cigarettes and attitude
Dean Fertita - lead guitar, keys, backing vox
Jack Lawrence - lead bass, ocular fashion, backing vox, drums
Jack White - rock god
The Dead Weather - Ottawa, ON - 7/19/09
