Earfarm has a neat little quiz up, in which you have to determine if a given musical outfit is for kids or disaffected hipsters.
They include one of my new favorite bands, Drink Up Buttercup, which I'll give you for free is a indie band. Although, confusingly enough, the below video is from a Kidrockers session at Pianos last winter.

• Steely Dan plays Beacon Theatre July 28, 29, 31 and August 1, 3, 4, 10, 11.

Beck, one of our favorites, has launched a series of new ventures (Pitchfork has a pretty good summary here, you don't need me to rewrite it). The highlights include an acoustic version of 2008's "Modern Guilt," with one... » more
Here's Jack White and his new band, The Dead Weather, just shooting the breeze. I know White's persona can really rub some people the wrong way, but I really love it. Also, his hair is getting magnificent.
The other band members are no slouches either.

Well, Albert Hammond Jr. did it first, to great acclaim; and Nikolai Fraiture and Fabrizio Moretti followed suit this summer, to mixed results; and now Julian Casablancas is doing it, leaving guitarist Nick Valensi the only Stroke to not have a side project.
