Friday Bears: New Vampire Weekend Video - Giving Up the Gun

Vampire Weekend debuted the second video from their recently released Contra for "Giving Up the Gun." But this time around, a handful of stars are giving them their support, including the RZA, Lil' Jon, Joe Jonas and Jake Gyllenhaal in an indoor-tennis themed porcelain dream, with the Ivy leaguers playing in the background.

For point of reference, RZA is the ref, Jonas is the first opponent, Gyllenhaal is the next and Lil' Jon plays the part of French inspiration. A fantastic video, indeed.

Thursday Bears: New Liars Video - Scissor

Liars premiered their video for "Scissor," the first track off the band's new Sisterworld album, earlier today. The video finds lead-singer Aaron Angus floating adrift on an inflatable life raft chucking boulders into the ocean before they seek their inevitable revenge on him.

Sisterworld is scheduled for release Tuesday, March 9 via Mute Records.

Wednesday Bears: Lollapalooza 2010 Rumors Begin

As it is every year with Bears and Bullets, I like to keep you guys up to date as much as possible with all of the rumors for my favorite summer music festival, Lollapalooza.

With the festival's 2009 paltry headliners in the rear-view mirror, 2010 looks to up the ante and then some for ticket-holders. As of today, multiple sources indicate that the headline list could resemble something in the mold of: Arcade Fire, Lady Gaga, The Strokes, Green Day, the recently re-united Soundgarden and The Flaming Lips, with artists like Phoenix, MGMT, Dirty Projectors, Yeasayer and Hot Chip also making the possible billing.

I'll continually keep you up to date on anything and everything Lollapalooza until the August 6-8 Chicago, IL festival.

Monday Bears: New Antlers Video - Bear

Brooklyn three-piece Antlers recently released their video for "Bear" off the band's often-celebrated debut album Hospice. The cold-hearted deciduous themed video a beautiful twenty-something woman dragging some big ass metaphor down the dirt road.

It looks like the film adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's The Road, but with more well-fitting clothes.
