Desire Isn't Suffering

Thursday Bears: New Okkervil River video - Your Past Life as a Blast

In a video completely befitting of the song title, "Your Past Life as a Blast" combs through Okkervil River lead Will Sheff's early-life family videos. While there's a lack of poignancy to what it's supposed to be, it comes off well.

The band's newest album I Am Very Far is out now on Jagjaguwar.

Wednesday Bears: AA Bondy - Surfer King

September 13 marked the release of AA Bondy's latest album Believers, a soft-folk pulse with a slight alternative county hinge - not the shitty kind, either. He's one of those artists that sort of drifts along until his remarkable songs begin to resurface again and again.

Grab "Surfer King" below.

Tuesday Bears: Radiohead on The Colbert Report

As mentioned yesterday, Radiohead Week has officially kicked off. Yesterday morning, tickets went on sale for the band's shows for tomorrow and Thursday at NYC's Roseland Ballroom, and predictably were sold out within a matter of seconds. Despite no one's best-efforts, scalpers got their hands on a large portion of said tickets, and are asking for a modest fee, including up to $4,550. Really.

Lucky for some, shit deal for others. But, the band did make their hour-long appearance on last night's Colbert Report fairly memorable, performing four tracks from The King of Limbs, "The Daily Mail," and a special closing rendition of "The National Anthem," which Comedy Central ended up cutting just short at the end.

You can watch the full episode here, or the individual tracks below.
