[Watch] LANY - "WHERE THE HELL ARE MY FRIENDS (Official Video)"

Have you ever encountered a song that is such a #selfie you find yourself chuckling as you bob and dance around to it because it's just too real? My latest "song #selfie" comes from Los Angeles group LANY. The track, "WHERE THE HELL ARE MY FRIENDS", now complete with an accompanying video (below), details a Friday night alone consisting of wine and the internet thanks to some [presumably] flakey friends. 

Um, hi. lol. That was mostly me when I first moved to New York and occasionally me now when I think I have a show but I don't. It's funny that the only thing that's changed in 10 years is I went from Sparks to fancy pants wine, but the sentiment is still the same. 

Anyway, I'm fairly certain everyone can identify with this video, which features lead singer Paul Klein awkwardly trying to navigate a party despite being obviously disconnected from all of them. Klein was fortunate enough to pair up with director Nadia Marquard Otzen for the video. “There needed to be vibe but not at the expense of narrative," he said, "I was insanely lucky to work with Nadia on piecing together a concept that delivered both.” 

The band is currently gearing up for the first ever headlining tour in May, which equally surprises me and doesn't that it has already sold out. They'll also be making the rounds at a bunch of festivals, so hopefully you'll luck out seeing them in your town. 

Check out their latest EP, Make Out along with their upcoming dates below.

[News] Radiohead Hints at Jack White Collaboration

During their headling set at Bonnaroo last night, Radiohead hinted heavily at a possible collaboration with Jack White. Just before going into their track "Supercollider," Thom Yorke said, "This song is for Jack White. We saw him yesterday. A big thank-you to him, but we can't tell you why. You'll find out." Who knows what we can expect from a collaboration such as this, but let the speculation begin. As well, check out the band's entire Bonnaroo performance above.

Daryl Hall, Chromeo To Perform Together At Bonnaroo Festival 2010


File under: random but potentially SUPER AWESOME! Daryl Hall (you know, from Hall & Oates) and Chromeo have announced that they will be performing together Friday, June 11th at Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, TN. 

Apparently this is not the first time that the unlikely pairing has happened. Back in 2008, Hall had Chromeo on his web show called "Live From Daryl's House" and the episode was widely successful. Their upcoming Bonnaroo performance is merely a reprise of the prior collaboration, slated to perform both Hall & Oates and Chromeo classics. 

This performance could not come at a better time for Chromeo, who are currently working in the studio in order to release their third studio album in August of 2010. You can catch up with them in their "lab" via their currently relaunched blog. If their single, "Night By Night" is any indication of what's to come from these guys, I am STOKED. 

In case you don't have it already:
