  • Check out Luke Rathborne's new music video for his track "Dog Years."
  • Check out Acid House Kings' second single "Would you say stop?"
  • Universal Pictures has launched the Your Life Adjusted: The Adjustment Bureau Video Project with a crowd-sourced, interactive video that evokes the theme of transformative moments as seen in the romantic thriller The Adjustment Bureau. The video was created by using hundreds of photos submitted by people around the world, including the film's stars, Oscar winner Matt Damon and Emily Blunt. The video is set to a brand new song "Future's Bright" from the soundtrack for the movie. "Future's Bright" is a collaboration between former Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft and ten-time Academy award nominee composer Thomas Newman (WALL-E, American Beauty).
  • Queens Of The Stone Age is commemorating the upcoming reissue with a limited series of intimate shows at which the band will play the record in its entirety, plus B-sides and other rarities and hits from the early Queens catalogue up to the present. The tour kicks off March 16 in Austin TX and will now conclude with a just-added second Los Angeles show on April 13, the day after which Queens will appear on CONAN. At press time, the tour was nearly completely sold out, with tickets remaining for only four dates (Omaha, Des Moines, St. Louis and Kansas City).
