[Watch] Black Lips in the studio with Mark Ronson

When you think of the Black Lips your first thought wouldn't be that they'd aspire to work with the magic hands of Mark Ronson. However that's exactly what the guys are doing with their latest studio offering. Up top you can take a peek at some footage of the guys in the studio with Mr Ronson. Being the first time the guys had worked with a producer it came as a surprise to most when they chose Ronson to work on their sixth studio album, but check out the insight into the studio uptop. Interesting stuff if you ask me, and I look forward to checking out the album when it's done.

New Strokes album due out in March

The long awaited fourth album from The Strokes seems to have a solid release date. In an interview with BBC's Zane Lowe, The Strokes' bassist Nikolai Fraiture stated that March 2011 was their goal for the release of the album which he feels "should have been made between Room On Fire and First Impressions Of Earth." The album is currently finished but is in the stages of mixing and perfecting, which makes the March release date very possible. Here's hopin' they follow through with their goal and blow us all away!

[Listen] Preview 2 New Madvillain (DOOM x Madlib) Tracks "Avalanche" x "Victory Lap"

In 2010, we heard the first newest material from the duo known as Madvillain, indie emcee and producer MF DOOM or DOOM & hip hop/jazz producer Madlib, since the group's 2003 debut album Madvillainy with the Adult Swim presented track "Papermill". Now the boys are back and it looks like we will should be hearing a MV sequel later this year. Stones Throw debuted samples of 2 new tracks from the duo off their latest Stones Throw podcast. Check out "Avalanche" x "Victory Lap" in the player below courtesy of One Thirty BPM.

[Download] Check Out These Live Bootlegs From Eminem, Gorillaz & Glassjaw

Remember that episode of "What's Happening" where Rerun and the gang get caught bootlegging a Doobie Brothers show? No? Yeah, I wasn't born around that time either. Anyways, over the last few days i've seen my fair share of some quality show recordings upon the interwebz and thought it would be nice share with you guys.

One, being the full concert audio from last September’s Detroit stop of the Home and Home tour featuring Eminem and Jay-Z. CoS reports that Shade45, the Sirius XM radio channel owned and operated by the Detroit rapper, compiled and premiered Eminem's set on the station on New Year’s Eve and thanks to the wonders of technology is now available for you to listen in the link below.

Second, is courtesy of Gorillaz-Unofficial, for their fan made live compilation Gorillaz album Plastic Beach Live. Which is made up of two disc, one being the whole Plastic Beach album performed live (from various locations) and the second disc is made up of other live performances during their recent tour. You can grab that one as well in the links below.

And lastly, is from the scremo band that is making their comeback, yes you guessed right, Glassjaw. This one is courtesy of Glassjaw.net and was taken from the group's recent new year's day show at the Best Buy Theatre. The band played most of their classic tracks and some of their newer singles (that were released on vinyl over the last few months) and 4 brand new songs! Just like the others you can check that show out as well, in the links below.
