Black Keys Release New Track “Turn Blue”

Yesterday, The Black Keys released their second track from their upcoming album, Turn Blue. Which being the title track from the new album is also titled “Turn Blue”. “Fever”, the first track released from the upcoming album, seemed to fall a bit short of expectations due to its unimaginative lyrics and a bland music style that feels fairly old hat at this point. Where as “True Blue” slows things down to spin an eerie, slower groove from the Keys, that satisfies in almost every way. Check it out here:

If you have yet to hear, Jack White really wet some whistles yesterday by randomly dropping a brand new track titled “High Ball Stepper”. Although it is apparently not the official lead single from his forthcoming album, the track is indeed going to be an actual product of Jack’s newest and bluest baby, Lazaretto. Music lovers were shocked, intrigued, and heavily satisfied all at once by this beast of an instrumental track.

Introducing LxL 2.0

cropped-LittlebyListen_Logo_Lowercase_DarkBlue1.png

We’ve been doing this blog for over 2.5 years, and we have loved Little by Listen as an excuse to stay immersed in the music world, share our opinions, and converse with numerous people about an art form that is personal and meaningful to each of us. This hasn’t always been the finest operation (grammatical errors probably the most notable blunder of the bunch), but we are happy with what we have been able to contribute and the great discussions we have had. One place we have always felt fell short was our visual appearance, which no longer is the case.

Radiohead Release New Album App: PolyFauna

Whoops! Apologies for the misleading headline, but I meant to type “App”. For some reason that just didn’t feel right when referring to a new release from Radiohead. However, as per usual, Radiohead broke new ground today with a new way to strike the fancy of their fans. PolyFauna. An app that was born from what the band decided the song “Bloom” would look like if it were a visual medium rather than a song. Here is what the ever-so wordy Thom Yorke posted on Dead Air Space, Radiohead’s website, this morning as the band’s announcement for the new app:

We heard a small snippet of Beck’s newest single “Blue Moon” in his album preview video in which they cut the first vinyl of Beck’s upcoming album, Morning Phase. It was just a short minute and a half snippet of the song, but it immediately resonated as an instant Beck classic. Now Beck has released the full version of the song, and the initial love for the track that was seeded in our hearts with the preview has only grown.

Watch/Interact With Bob Dylan’s Video For “Like A Rolling Stone”

Bob Dylan Like A Rolling Stone Video

In 1965 Bob Dylan released “Like A Rolling Stone” as a single from his album Highway 61 Revisited. The song instantly created a buzz and was considered to be a very controversial pick as a single. Clocking in at six minutes and thirteen seconds, it was one of the longest pop singles to ever be released. Not only that, but this was the first time the mass public had heard Bob Dylan in his new electric format on a full LP rather than his traditional acoustic/folk. His die-hard fans may have been irate, but the move proved successful as Bob Dylan was able to garner a larger fan base and put out an album that is widely regarded as his best work ever. And not only that, but many (even the almighty Rolling Stone magazine) dean “Like A Rolling Stone” to be the greatest rock songs of all time. Now a mere 48 years later, the infamous song finally gets a music video. And what type of video does one of the greatest songs of all time warrant? Well one of the greatest music videos of all time of course.
