Being a Beatles fan for most of my life I really enjoyed this video when it was shared with me by a friend on Facebook. It’s great since you get to hear a lost guitar solo by George Harrison on his song, “Here Comes The Sun” from the Beatles’ Abbey Road album. In the video we see Dhani Harrison, the son of the late guitarist, as he sits in a recording studio (presumably at Abbey Road) with George Martin, the Beatles’ legendary producer, and Martin’s son Giles. Together, they play with the mix of “Here Comes the Sun,” when the moment of discovery happens. The three of them stumble upon the long lost guitar solo that never made the final cut of the album. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

As everyone already knows, I am into music. I do like other things though, and one of these things is biking. Every year around Spring I start going through YouTube to watch all the new biking videos to get me psyched for the biking season. Sometimes I happen to come across some pretty good music in these videos too. For instance, in this video I got hooked on Band of Horses‘, “The Funeral.”

Filmed in and around Edinburgh, Scotland by Dave Sowerby, this video of Inspired Bicycles team rider Danny MacAskill features some the best riding I’ve ever seen. There’s some awesome riding, but also some of the most technically difficult and imaginative lines you will ever see. Without a doubt, this video pushes the envelope of what is perceived as possible on a bike.

Enjoy the music and the riding!

ABOUT THE BANDS:

EOTO
“With no two shows alike, fans have come to expect the unexpected. Changes in mood, energy, and inspiration are reflected—in real-time—by rhythmic and melodic shifts in the music as EOTO makes their way through a plethora of tools and techniques. The duo moves effortlessly from choppy dubstep to whip-smart, four-on-the-floor house to psychedelic trip-hop. It’s a dance marathon, but everyone’s in it together.

MATERIALIZED
Materialized is an ongoing musical collaboration built on the core of a lifelong friendship between Grammy Award winning keyboardist (Mighty) Dave Pellicciaro and drummer Dale Fanning.
Based in Oakland, CA the band builds their energized sound on big beats and sonic scapes. To keep the music constantly growing they engage a revolving cast of talent for their live shows ranging from a powerhouse two-man match to trios, full band with a horn section, singers, video and dancers including their main associate, Cuban-born bassist Carlitos Del Puerto (Bruce Springsteen, Herbie Hancock).
Materialized has released their EP CD “Songs About Music” and are dropping three fresh singles on Feb 1st. Check these high octane adventures on iTunes, CD Baby, Spotify and Pandora.

Love In The Circus
Love in the Circus features unique and seductive melodies that combine and blur the lines of electronica, rock, jazz and blues with sultry, edgy, museful hooks.
The group was formed by singer/bassist Leanna Rachel and producer/guitarist Chris Brickler. Curtis Cunningham joined the group on drums, Eric Hargett on keys/saxophone and Cha Chi on percussion/synths. The High Priestess and Leah Zeger add beautiful textures on the harp and violin, respectively.

Definitely an iconic video from the 80′s, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers‘ “Don’t Come Around Here No More” is definitely memorable right down to the end when everyone eats Alice of Wonderland as a cake. Get ready to go on a little trip with this video.

An interesting piece of music video trivia:

Who is that guy sitting on top of the toadstool smoking a hookah and playing sitar? That is none other than Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics, who first wrote the song for Stevie Nicks but finished it with Tom Petty.

The Shins will tour the United States in 2012.

The Shins teased some 2012 tour dates on the heels of locking up a featured spot at Coachella 2012, and now the momentum keeps rolling. They’ve tacked on dates in May and June, and they’ll get as far as Ohio in a Midwestern stint. East Coast: no love for you guys yet, but these arena tours tend to roll out slowly so you may catch some good news regarding summer Shins concerts in the coming weeks.

The Shins also debuted “September,” a B-side to “Simple Song” with a typographic video which superimposes lyrics and drawings onto a spinning record. Watch the video and check out The Shins’ tour dates below.
