Listening Post: Evolution Edition
A couple of new songs from bands that have been around for a while.
Up first -- as much as I give credit to Linkin Park for moving forward from their original nu-metal roots, their last album, Minutes to Midnight, was rather average all the way around.
That said, I like their latest video because it pays homage to an underappreciated movie from last year: Danny Boyle's Sunshine.
Here's Leave Out All the Rest.
Next, another spectacular video from Weezer (it's practically a given by now).
This one trades on the familiarity of all sorts of funny -- and/or thoroughly annoying -- internet memes.
It's Pork and Beans.
