Sheryl Crow: "No Depression" Video
"The antithesis of everything that's out there" is how director/producer Alex Postowoi (Joan Armatrading, Jann Arden, Bif Naked+) describes this super-natural video of Canadian singer-songwriter Allison Crowe performing live-in-the-studio. Crowe performs in a first, single take her song, "Whether I'm Wrong," which has been featured by the UNESCO-endorsed New Songs for Peace project.
A riveting in-studio clip from a legendary band. This was taken from the DVD "Critical Times: The Henhouse Sessions".
Bridget Carey joins The 404 Show to give an in-studio demo of Google Glass.
Johnny Cash sings alongside June Carter Cash on this classic country number, accompanied by vintage footage of June, Johnny, and the legendary Carter Family.
This in-studio footage from this seminal punk group comes from the DVD "The Dead Kennedys - In God We Trust Inc.: The Lost Tapes".
Believe it or not, the fourth host on today's episode of CNET's The 404 Podcast is the Nook, Barnes & Noble's e-book reader with a color touch screen and Wi-Fi. The device is currently sold out and on back order throughout B&N, so it wasn't easy to obtain. We had to walk 500 miles and battle a Nazgul to get it, but the in-studio demo was worth the wait. If you haven't seen a Nook up close, you're in for a treat.
Beck has confirmed an October 3 U.S. release for his new album, The Information. Three years in the making, The Information is the album Beck began work on with producer Nigel Godrich (Beck's Sea Change, Mutations; Radiohead's OK Computer, Kid A) before last year's Guero. The Information was finally completed earlier this year once extended touring engagements necessitated by Guero's success, as well as Nigel's other commitments, were fulfilled. The Information is comprised of 15 songs and a DVD featuring homemade videos for each of the 15 songs shot in-studio during the actual sessions. The artwork for The Information is either non-existent or infinite, depending on one's point of view: Each copy will come in a blank package with one of four collectible sticker sheets specially designed by American and European artists hand-picked by Beck. In addition to the self-shot videos currently floating around on Beck.com, Beck's MySpace page, Youtube and various other corners of the Internet, Beck recently shot a video for "Cell Phone's Dead," directed by Michel Gondry. In other Beck video news, last year's "Hell Yes" clip will be up for Best Special Effects In A Video when the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards air 8 p.m. August 31. On the live front, Beck will follow his previously announced headlining slot at this year's Download Festival September 30 at San Francisco's Shoreline Amphitheater with a top-billed appearance at the Detour Festival October 7 in downtown Los Angeles.
