[Listen] The Black Keys - "Everlasting Light" (The Mummers Remix)

After the whirlwind year that The Black Keys had with their sixth studio album Brothers sending them into the skull of most music loving types young and old it was only a matter of time before more and more remixes began to surface. Brighton based band The Mummers have thrown this out for the world to enjoy featuring some strings that sound like they belong in a Disney film sandwiched between the fuzzy guitar riff and raw drum track makes for a very pleasurable listen. Add to this Raissa Khan-Panni's lovely voice singing "Let me be your ever lasting light" over and over, this is a very nice adaptation of an already great track. Check it out for yourself below via ListenBeforeYouBuy.

[Watch] Another Patrick Stump A Cappella Video

Last week Mr Patrick Stump formerly of Fall Out Boy uploaded an entertaining and impressive video of him singing a cappella to a load of Grammy nominated tracks and artists. This morning he has done it again much to his dismay, as it seems he had a few technical issues while uploading to Youtube! On his Twitter account he firstly told fans: "So. Egg on my face. That video is not the one I intended to post, but I've been on a plane all day and didn't see it." going on to add that he was "Embarrassed, pissed, disappointed. Will rectify ASAP". He delivered though and uploaded the video with the correct audio track and now you can enjoy his cover of John Legend and Andre 3000's "Green Light". Watch it up at the top and just to let you know the video stil isn't perfect as Patrick went on finally to add "For the record, Youtube must hate this damn video cause now it's out of sync. I give the eff up. Good night." 

Sound like he had a bad day but still, the video is an entertaining watch so check out the singer singng his lungs out to John and Andre.

[Watch] Wanda Jackson & Jack White - "Funnel of Love" Live on Conan

For the third time in as many weeks we get to see Jack White firing his guitar off on all rounds as last night him and Wanda Jackson made another TV appearance. This time it was on Jack's friend and sharer of the stage on at least two occasions, Conan O'Brien who was to be the host for the White/Jackson performance. The pair along with the Third Man Band took to the set and performed "Funnel Of Love" which Wanda first performed back in 1961. It doesn't appear on Wanda's new release, The Party Ain’t Over which dropped in stores yesterday. As well as their performance Jack and Wanda sat down to have a talk about the whole experience and what not with Conan, of which you can watch after the jump.

If you missed either of the other recent performances/appearences by these guys, you can see Jack and co doing their thing on Letterman, blasting out "Shakin' All Over" for your viewing pleasure. As well as that entertaining vid Wanda, Jack and the band spent a day recording and performing a Bob Dylan Cover in the form "Thunder on the Mountain". Recorded at the very same pressing factory at which Wanda's new LP was it makes for an energetic performance. Enjoy the Conan performance at the top courtesy of our friends over at The Audio Perv.
