Subterranean just keeps bringin’ it with another great episode this week. I watched this one online, so if there’s any difference from the videos that aired on MTV2, someone comment and let me know.
It’s good to hear from The Rapture again after two or three years of absence. I think I liked almost every video this week. I’ve been following Lily Allen since the early summer. Her entire album is fantastic, in my opinion, a contender for one of the best albums of the year. Plus, TV On The Radio put together the best music of their career with Return to Cookie Mountain, and Wolf Like Me is a shining example of that. Finally, I can’t get enough of the new videos by Regina Spektor, Thom Yorke, and Cat Power, so it was nice to watch those again. No complaints from me this time around.
Last but not least, MTV.com selected some quality bonus videos, including a Talking Heads classic. Watch the entire episode here:
