R.E.M. Release Two Videos For Their New Song "We All Go Back To Where We Belong"

R.E.M. keeps it simple yet stunning for their first music video post band split for "We All Go Back To Where We Belong". The track has not one but two videos, one featuring actress Kirsten Dunst and the other featuring artist/poet/activist John Giorno. Appearing on the band's upcoming greatest hits record titled "R.E.M., Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage, 1982 - 2011", out November 15th, this could be the last R.E.M. video ever made (unless the word reunion comes into play).

Check out both videos here:

Both black and white films for "We All Go Back To Where We Belong" capture their subjects in stark relief using a strong key light and shot with a stationary camera, an effect that Stipe describes as lending "gravity and beauty" to the proceedings.

Beautiful indeed...

Likely Looks: Duck Sauce - Big Bad Wolf

These days music videos are flashy, expensive and just really don't have too much of a concept. Then you get a video like THIS ONE for Duck Sauce's track "Big Bad Wolf" thats just absolutely brilliant.

I don't want to give too much away but laughs are in your future and a little bit of ridiculousness!


TRIBES Announce North American Tour, Release "We Were Children" Video

The 90's was one of the absolute best decades for music and TRIBES are ready to inform you of what you missed if you aren't familiar with it.

Formed in rough-and-tumble Camden, London in 2009 after guitarist Dan White tried to steal drummer Miguel Demelo's wallet, Tribes have grown the old-fashioned way, eschewing an early web presence in favor of CDs passed out directly to friends. As luck would have it, their demos fell into the hands of Black Francis, leading to an opening slot with heroes The Pixies at a concert in London. Shortly after, the band's buzz, perseverance, and reputation as a furiously energetic live act earned them a slot on their first UK tour, supporting the Mystery Jets.

Being hailed as "the best American band in Britain" by NME, the band are now setting their sights on the country whose music they love so much--America, with a set of U.S. tour dates beginning December 7 at Great Scott in Boston, MA.

Their UK single "We Were Children" sparks a frenzy outside Camden as they flipped the video on a rooftop. Watch it here:
