Lotta fuzz punk LA surf revival indie bands out these days. And I love ’em all. Here’s one of my faves, Best Coast, with their first music video. It’s directed by Pete Ohs (he did that rad Wavves vid a while back) and features some Best Coast babe on Ronald McDonald action.
Dudes. Ok. So. Noah Lennox, aka Panda Bear from indie overlords Animal Collective, has been lending his vocals to a lot of performers lately. There’s been Taken By Trees, Atlas Sound, and most recently Pantha du Prince. Well, now you can official add Jay-Z to that list. The reverb-washed crooner was approached after a Brooklyn concert by the once reigning king of hip hop about collaborating. Lennox told the CrookedSine blog: “I’ve always loved hip hop and early 90s dance and R&B. The group [Animal Collective] has been incorporating elements of that for awhile into our sets and recorded material. I’ve especially been shifting that direction for my upcoming album. I’m a huge Jay-Z fan, and when he approached me after the show, saying he wanted to work together, I was floored.” You can read the rest of the interview here. As for me, I’m eagerly awaiting how many hipster heads will explode due to this news.
It’s official. Megan Fox told the PinkHollywood blog that the June issue of Playboy will feature her on the cover and inside bearing all for the first time. “My idol has always been Marilyn Monroe, and she was the first one to do Playboy. I figure, I’m not getting any younger, so I might as well do this in my prime like Marilyn did.” You can read the rest of the interview, including some sexy details about what the shoot will entail, here.
