Arcade Fire Cover INXS' "Devil Inside"

arcade-fireArcade Fire has had a pretty incredible 2014, and it’s only January. I mean, they were nominated for a BRIT Award, are headlining Coachella, and just generally seem to be on top of the world. I still hear “Reflektor” played constantly on indie radio. Plus, they’re currently touring Australia surrounding their time at Big Day Out Festival, so that’s  pretty cool.

Speaking of, last night while at Sidney Myer Music Bowl, the band covered INXS‘ “Devil Inside.” You can watch a fan recorded performance, and if you’re in the mood for an Arcade Fire/INXS mashup, you can listen to a new one by the Hood Internet below. (more…)

U2, Pharrell, Karen O Nominated For Oscars

OscarsLately it feels like all we do is fill you in on the latest awards that your favorite musicians are up for. But you know, that’s not such a bad thing. Between the Grammy Awards, BRIT Awards, and People’s Choice Awards, we’ve been seeing some repeat nominees and winners. Take for example U2. They are recent winners of a Golden Globe  for their track “Ordinary Love,” and now they’re up for an Oscar in the Best Original Song category for the same track, which can be heard in the film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. Or how about Grammy nominee Pharrell, who was up for an award for his work on Robin Thicke‘s Blurred Lines, and is now nominated for his songs “Happy” from Despicable Me 2, and “Alone Yet Not Alone” from the movie of the same name? And let’s not forget Karen O whose solo track “The Moon Song” (from Her, and written with director Spike Jonze) faces off with U2 for Best Original Song.

You can check out the full list of nominees below, and let us know in the comments who has your vote.
