Julian Casablancas covers an SNL Classic

This is what happens when you get Jimmy Fallon, Horatio Sanz, and Julian Casablancas all on one stage at the same time.  Really.  Click over and watch the video.  If this doesn’t make your heart ready for Christmas I don’t know what will.

And apparently Jules has gone one better and recorded the perennial SNL favorite sketch as a bonafide single.  Enjoy and Merry Christmas.

The Killers Live on SNL

The Killers must easily have one of the most hyped albums of this calendar year.  Whether you loved or hated their previous effort, Sam’s Town, you’re more than likely waiting around anxiously for their newest disc to spin {or download}.  To hold you over there have been a few live tracks flitting around the interwebs recently, which I’m sure you’ve heard, and this past weekend The Killers had the good sense to play on Saturday Night Live.  Admittedly the sound quality on these songs isn’t as brilliant as I could hope for, but that’s what happens when live television is converted to simple audio tracks.

mp3 : The Killers – Human (Live on SNL)
mp3 : The Killers – Spaceman (Live on SNL)

Both tracks are great although I still have absolutely no idea what the track Spaceman is about.  On that note I guess I don’t really have a clue what Human is about either.  Are we human, or are we dancer?  Say what?  In the end, though, it doesn’t matter because the songs just sound amazing.  Here’s to hoping the rest of the upcoming album, Day & Age due November 25th, is just as well crafted.
