https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRqiFPpw2fY Foo Fighters are no strangers to fairy tales , but in a Dave Grohl-directed video for "The Sky Is A Neighborhood," there's an eerie glow not all that dissimilar to the sci-fi wonder of Stranger Things . The band stomps on top of a fantastical forest cabin inhabited by two Eleven-looking young girls (who happen to be played by Grohl's daughters). The second single from Concrete And Gold is a soulful stomp that turns psychedelic, perhaps the…

It's been a little over a month since Bob Boilen and I have sat together and shared some essential tunes, but we're back with some keepers, including a new, swoon-worthy song from singer Julien Baker and a beautifully infectious track from The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart . "My Only" finds Pains frontman Kip Berman reflecting on a new chapter in his life: "I'm married, with a young daughter," he says, "and an old Volvo." Also on the program: Former Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant…

"Walkaway," the newest song from the Toronto art rockers and the next single from their forthcoming album Wide Open , certainly channels the Boss in its anthemic spirit, but it remains loose and vulnerable in a way that is all Weaves' own.
