Brighten the Corners

Videos of the Day – week of 8/5

8/5 – brand-new MGMT to start the week…kinda depressing, but also kinda funny & I also like that it’s short & sweet!

8/6 – Daft Punk was supposed to be on The Colbert Report tonight, but they spurned him due to an apparent agreement that MTV’s Video Music Awards in Sept. would be their 1st U.S. TV appearance in support of Random Access Memories (or something).  Colbert made comedic hay with the disappointing news anyway…

8/7 – White Lies are about the last band in the world I would think would play a ballroom dance party, but I like their new video anyway!

8/8 – The Mowgli’s are in town tmrw, welcomed by The Corner to The Jefferson – we’ve all heard their “San Francisco” song a bunch, now here’s the new single!

8/9 – American Authors are also on the bill tonight at The Jefferson (and like The Mowgli’s, they’ll be joining us in the Corner Lounge this afternoon!)…here’s their cover of Ellie Goulding’s “Lights”
