  • Jack White brings the same creative inventiveness he does to his Third Man Records releases to his new music video for “Black Bat Licorice.” With a push of the “3” or “B” key, you can switch back and forth between three different interpretations of the interactive video: an animated version, a live-action version, or just some head-banging. It’s great fun! Watch below: [Spin]

  • Last night, George Lewis, Jr. (better known as Twin Shadow) took the stage on Late Show With David Letterman to perform the track “To The Top,” a sneak peek at his upcoming third album Eclipse. Check out the sensual synthpop jam below, and keep track of all the late night musical highlights with KEXP’s TV Eye column. Eclipse hits stores March 17th via Warner Bros. Records.
