I guess you can consider this a throwback moment, and a very rare one at that on IHM, but here’s an unreleased, unplugged version of R.E.M.’s classic The One I Love that debuted on Rolling Stone earlier today. The recording is from their 2001 MTV Unplugged appearance, and it’s a huge reminder of how incredible this song is, and how influential and amazing R.E.M. was. I was absolutely transfixed by this earlier this morning, and knew right away, I had to share this magic. On Record Store Day, Michael Stipe and the band released limited copies of their 1991 and 2001 MTV Unplugged sessions on vinyl. The vinyl sold so well that they’ve decided to release a version on CD come May 19, which includes this amazing rendition of The One I Love as well as many more treats. Their legacy lives on. Forever.

OFFICIAL VID: Big K.R.I.T. – R.E.M.

Big ups on Big K.R.I.T. for sampling James Blake’s The Wilhelm Scream! I love that song! He does a pretty dang good job of sampling it on his track R.E.M. too. I like it. R.E.M. is off Big K.R.I.T.’s coming project King Remembered In Time.

OFFICIAL VID: Atoms For Peace – Ingenue

March 1, 2013

Ladies and gents, let’s all welcome back the dancing Thom Yorke! His supergroup project Atoms for Peace (with Flea, Nigel Godrich, Joey Waronker, etc) released a video for Amok track Ingenue, and Thom gives us his best contemporary dance routine yet with dancer Fukiko Takase. It’s a mesmerizing performance and a hypnotizing track.

Ben Gibbard + members of R.E.M.

Here’s some pretty cool live footage of Ben Gibbards on stage with members (Peter Buck and Mike Mills) of R.E.M. covering R.E.M.’s Near Wild Heaven! The clip is from the Todos Santos Festival in Mexico last weekend.  Hmm. Ben + R.E.M. isn’t a bad deal at all! His voice sounds great with the rest of the members. Gotta find more footage!

Well, well, the world didn’t end, did it? Hur hur hur hur. Big surprise. But that’s no reason not to celebrate the big ol’ prank and joke with some end of the world music! Effing awesome producer Pretty Lights thinks along the same lines. He offered up this 6 minute super mashup and titled it Pretty Lights vs The End of the World. The mix features the likes of Black Sabbath, R.E.M., and The Doors. Epic.

OFFICIAL VID: R.E.M. – That Someone Is You

November 29, 2012

I’m still in absolute awe of the video released a couple weeks ago for R.E.M.’s BLUE. That song is just stupendous and the video was amazing. Turns out, James Franco created a SECOND video for another track off R.E.M.’s final album Collapse Into Now. The short video for That Someone Is You was released today, and he stars in the lo-fi home video styled clip himself. The object of his affections, for some odd reason, has a giant cathead superimposed on her face the whole video. Umm. Right. LOL. Cat. LOLCAT. Get it? Anyway. Cats are cool.

And now, if you missed Franco’s video for Blue (starring Lindsay Lohan) or somehow never heard the amazeballs song before, I share again.
