The first draft of this post, titled “My Poproks Best Songs Since 2000,” is from this past March. 8 months, 1,000 edits, and 3,000 miles later, it officially exits the abyss of blogFAIL that is My Poproks “drafts” section. Making lists is hard! I will never complain about another ‘Blank Songs of Blank’ list ever [...]

Last week, War Child released a rather good compilation album (US release tomorrow); a collection of ‘legendary’ covers all picked by the original artist, and performed by a current act of their choice. Even though the tracklisting already looks like someone’s fantasy compilation, I couldn’t help but dream up a few more cover ideas. Keep [...]
This is the second time I’m posting this song this week and I do not care. To be expected, here’s an amazing video to go with the new track, “Mystery Man,” which will be available on Gnarls Barkley’s upcoming EP. What an awesome, awesome, awesome track. So much soul. So little time.
Gnarls Barkley’s Who’s Gonna Save My Soul EP is out next week, and since they are the greatest pop band in the world, of course, even the b-sides and the outtakes are incredible. On “Mystery Man,” Gnarls get extremely psychedelic and experimental, much to my delight. Bits of this play like a Radiohead track off [...]
Because some things are worth posting twice.
Of all the bands that have attempted Radiohead covers, I’d say this is by far the most successful. I would love to hear a proper recording of this. Cee-Lo belts this In Rainbows track in a very different way from Yorke, but it works just as well (yeah, I said “just as”). Gnarls Barkley has [...]
Gnarls Barkley – “Who’s Gonna Save My Soul?”by DowntownMusic Is it possible that Gnarls Barkley, with only two albums and a handful of singles, has a video collection comparable to that of Radiohead or Bjork. The new video for “Who’s Gonna Save My Soul,” above, made it’s world premier on MTV Overdrive yesterday, and I [...]
I love making lists more than I love sunshine. Gorilla vs. Bear brought this to my attention. It’s a list idea started by this guy to name your favorite album from each year that you’ve been alive. You can either fill this out as you would today, or as you would have then. I am [...]
Damn. I swore I would not call anymore line-ups the “best line-up so far,” but check out what’s going down at Austin City Limits this year. Motherfuckin’ Gnarls Barkley, N.E.R.D., Vampire Weekend, Raconteurs, The Black Keys, Beck… Ugh.
