December 16th, 2009

New Music Report: Surfer Blood

December 16th, 2009
Photographs by Ian Witlen The debut album from West Palm Beach-based ’90s throwback rockers Surfer Blood blends Weezer hooks and Pavement slacker jams with distorted guitars and post-punk choruses. Rolling Stone assistant editor Kevin O’Donnell notes the group is young enough to have been in diapers with indie rock exploded in the 1990s, but you’d never know that from listening to Astro Coast, which was cut in a Florida college dorm room. Standout track “Swim” mixes ...

Britney Spears’ “3 ” Video Reappears as a Director’s Cut

December 16th, 2009
Considering it was a racy song about threesomes, Britney Spears fans were mostly disappointed when the relatively tame video for “3″ was unveiled in late October. Director Diane Martel has apparently heard your pleas, as a new Director’s Cut of “3″ leaked out yesterday. The new version doesn’t sport any new scenes of ménages or anything that would get the post-Lambert AMAs viewers complaining to the FCC. Instead this cut offers up a slightly more ...
