The "Blue Jeans" video by Lana Del Rey has been officially released after a fake leak of the video emerged yesterday.
The video shot in black and white with underwater imaged focused and unfocused is quite beautiful. I do not know why but with the vocal delivery and the way it was shot, it does remind me of "Wicked Game" by Chris Issak.
The male actor in the video is Bradley Soileau, who was also featured in Del Rey's "Born To Die" video. The video is directed by Yoann Lemoine and we are told it is a prequel to the "Die" video.
Lana is staying around a lot longer than her detractors expected. If she keeps shooting videos like this, she might be accepting a few MTV Video Music Awards later this year.-DocFB
Adeline Records will be releasing "The Thing That Ate Larry Livemore" compilation on May 29th featuring the future of Punk Rock and more.
Livermore was asked by Green Day's frontman Billy Joe Armstrong to make the compilation and at first, Livermore did not want to do it.
"When Billie Joe asked me to put together this compilation, my first reaction was to say, 'Absolutely not.' I was too busy with other projects, and besides, I'd been saying for years that I was done with the music business, that people should take me out and shoot me if I ever showed any sign of wanting to get back into it,"
"But then I realized that this was an opportunity to do for a whole new crop of bands what we'd been able to accomplish at Lookout back in the 80s and 90s, which was to bring exciting and passionate music to the attention of a public that might otherwise never get to hear it. Once I thought about it in that light, it was impossible to say no."
Livermore ran Lookout records, which first introduced us to bands like Green Day, Operation Ivy, Rancid, Screeching Weasel and many more.

DJ & producer Borgore has just released the video for "Kiss My Lips" featuring Dev. You remember Dev right? She sang the hook to "Like A G6" from Far East Movement.
This video features a live DJ set performance of Borgore complete with hot stripper and all. She keeps her clothes on though so it is safe for work. Womp womp.
Dev also released "In The Dark" which although did not reach the popularity of G6, it did gain her a comparison to Lady Gaga.
The Borgore versus Dev "Kiss My Lips" appears on the 23 year old's latest EP entitled "Flex" which you can download for FREE right HERE.
Borgore also performed a set at SXSW last week. Right now, check out "Kiss My Lips" and let us know what you think.-DocFB

Lady Gaga's interview with Oprah aired last night and in the interview, Gaga says she is not going to be doing interviews or talk with the media for a "very, very long time" and....we still don't believe her.
With an upcoming tour and an album that still is not selling as well as "The Fame Monster", we still do not know how she will take the "Born This Way" tour on the road without more promotion.
Se has been silent for a few months, not even talking to any press at the Grammys. Perhaps Gaga feels she has been overexposed and needs to take it down a notch. I can understand that.
It would be a welcome change of not being so over the top. Over the years, without saying a word, her outfits garnered her more attention than the music. In the Oprah interview, she is very dressed down for her standards.
What do you think of Gaga going silent for a while? Is it needed?-DocFB

I came across Kevin Hammond on YouTube performing "We Are Young" a cover by Fun. I have never heard Fun's version but I am digging Kevin Hammond's version of it.
The lyrics are plenty awesome and his vocal delivery is impressive to say the least. Sometimes that all it takes to get my attention. No label sending me stuff. No manager saying "doc, check this out my man" but just cruising YouTube. No singing TV show. Just a performance jamming in your place.
"We Are Young" by Kevin Hammond is an example of that. We wanted to share this with you and hope you like it.-DocFB

50 Cent rocked SXSW performing "Get Rich Or Die Trying" in its entirety with special guest Eminem. 50 is dropping his new song "Girls Go Wild" with Jeremih and....its no "Get Rich" at all.
I was expecting a song that did not sound like it could have been released in 1999. 50's flow is cool but maybe it just does not mix with Jeremih.
I'm curious how this will be received at the clubs though. It might take off. Right now, I'm not too sure.
So do we FUNK it or DUNK it?-DocFB
