The Very Best - "Kondaine" ft. Seye

New video by The Very Best for "Kodaine" below.

Cloud Seeding - "Newer Testament" (feat. Greg Hatem)

Do yourself a favor and pay close attention to this new track from Cloud Seeding.  You don't want to miss anything here.  Erie guitars and tortuous percussion, "Newer Testament" is anything but background music.  It's a complete departure from the project's first single which featured Marissa Nadler.  This one features Greg Hatem from Heart Of Hearts.

Honestly heartbroken about my favorite Beastie Boy MCA (Adam Yauch) passing yesterday. I feel as if a piece of my childhood left with him. Much, much love and respect. Thanks for teaching me about rebellion and later respect and responsibility. Truly a hero. He will be missed. Here is the obituary on And here's a bunch of twitter shout outs.

Check out Coldplay doing "Fight for Your Right to Party" after the greatest video of all time, "Sabotage".
