VOTD: Conan 'covers' Radiohead

‘You’re so f***ing special.’

So Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros showed up on Conan O’Brien’s Summer Concert Series Tuesday night, and as the ginger comedian was about to introduce the band, he got a little ... distracted.

“Were you guys just doing ‘Creep’ right now?” he asked.

So he busted out his best Cockney accent, and an impromptu jam session ensued. Watch for yourself, via Team Coco.



“I wan’ you ‘oo no’ice ... when I’m naw’ awoun’ ...”

You can follow Conan's hilarious Twitter feed here.

Pixies do ‘Doolittle’

Gouge away at pics from the Pixies’ visit to Bricktown.

I was born less than a year prior to “Doolittle”’s April 1989 release, so I imagine if I’d have heard it then, it would’ve likely damaged my little ears much worse than when I walked past the stage-level speakers in the photo pit last night.

Absolutely inhuman sounds blasted from them, a mix of Frank Black’s snarling caterwaul and Joey Santiago’s damaged guitar playing. If you like your noise just as much as you like your pop hooks, then Bricktown was the place to be last night. Check out my photos:

VOTD: Vincent can go

Tulsa-born pinup St. Vincent plays six songs, expresses love for Robert Fripp and Dimebag Darrell.

In case you missed it, Tulsa-born Annie Clark recorded one of the year’s best albums in “Strange Mercy,” a rich, artful record that’s spiked with moments of morbidity and unexpected sonic textures, mostly supplied by her unique approach to guitar playing.

That style is on clear and wonderful display in these videos from a recent show shot by MTV Hive. Be sure to check out the Frippy, trippy guitar solo on ... well, all most of these songs, but especially “Northern Lights,” which races its way to a climactic finish. Early album standout “Your Lips Are Red” gets a seriously badass, almost metal-heavy facelift here. Also, Annie earns super bonus points for the end-of-show, noisy, crowd-surf move. What I would give to be that lucky stagehand...

Yeah, so come play a hometown show please, Annie. Also, tweet @OKmattcarney if you’d be interested in dating interviewing a fellow Tulsan who loves your music. OK, you got me. I really did mean “dating.” I promise Taylor and I are through.
