Bears and Bullets Friday Mixtape!

Yes, it's been a while - in fact a very long while since I've posted one of my Friday Mixtapes for you guys. Why did I delay for so long? Don't know. Why am I started again? I guess someone deserves it.

Anyway, here's the latest of Bears and Bullets Friday Mixtapes with songs from the Black Lips, M. Ward, Wavves, and many more.

Take it home with you.


1.) M. Ward - Never Had Nobody Like You
2.) Dum Dum Girls - Catholicked
3.) The Traditionalist - No Self Portrait
4.) Antony & the Johnsons - Kiss My Name
5.) Black Lips - Short Fuse
6.) Eternal Summers - Fall Straight Back
7.) Heartless Bastards - The Mountain
8.) Titus Andronicus - My Time Outside the Womb
9.) Wavves - So Bored

Her Morning Elegance

Here's a quick, cool little video posted on the Cinematical earlier today. The video's creator, Oren Lavie (who also wrote the song), pieced together roughly 3225 still-photos over two days to create Her Morning Elegance.

For fun.

Yeasayer - Tightrope (In-Studio)

Before the Dark Was the Night EP benefit album was online, Yeasayer had recorded their song "Tightrope" for a Minnesota Public Radio show in late October of last year. Thanks to Culture Bully again for finding these gems.

New Video; Asobi Seksu - Me and Mary

Fueling my fascination with female Asian indie rockers, Asobi Seksu have released a video for their new single "Me and Mary" off their new album Hush (pre-order here). Watch as Yuki Chikudate and James Hanna find a way to live in their new stencil world.

Andrew Bird and M83

Usually Culture Bully will help anyone who misses the performances from the late night talk shows from the night before. All while I missed Andrew Bird's live performance of "Fitz and Dizzyspells" off of his new album Noble Beast, because of, I don't know, Adult Swim or something, I was lucky enough to catch M83 performing "Kim & Jessie" on Conan.

Get your fill.

Last Second Daniel Britt

I found this video on You Ain't No Picasso of Spoon's Britt Daniel covering Wire's "12XU" and I figured someone else would appreciate it.

New Black Lips Single

The Black Lips have released their second single from their upcoming album 200 Million Thousand (available 2/24) entitled "Short Fuse." After the group's recent India misadventures, it's heartwarming to know the Atlanta guys are doing well.

The songs not as messy as some of the previous Black Lips efforts, but it's still worthy.

Scheer on Scheer

On weak days like this, where I'm stuck at looking for English Beat MP3's and reading stories of last night's SAG Awards (on TBS. Very Funny), I'm lucky enough to find this video of Paul Scheer confronting Future Paul Scheer from Aziz Ansari's Blog Aziz is Bored.

Note the 2nd Death Star at some point.

"My Girls" Video

I caught on this kinda late (sorry for the end of last week) but so far in 2009 anything that has even come close to Animal Collective has been posted here, so the only justice I could do for that Dark Was the Night EP mess-up (sorry, again) is to post the band's newest video for their incredible single "My Girls."
