Just when you thought that the Lumineers couldn’t get any bigger, you start watching the MTV Movie Awards and a Bing commercial flashes across the screen to the tune of “Ho Hey.” Check out Reverb’s piece on the recent good fortunes of the trio by Ricardo Baca here.

Danielle Ate the Sandwich, put her “Faith In A Man”
Synthetic Picturehaus has put together one of the best videos/short films we’ve seen in a while. The nostalgic video for Danielle’s single “Faith in a Man” captures the true essence of the golden era of film, and was filmed at Heritage Square. Fans can catch the album release party at the Bluebird Theater on June 10. Photo via Synthetic Picturehaus.
Peyton Manning is “Some QB That I Used to Know”
“All Colts become Broncos,” or so the song “Some QB That I Used to Know” goes to the tune of Gotye’s über smash, “Somebody That I Used to Know.” The video is an obvious stab at the Indianapolis Colts for releasing the veteran quarterback (Peyton Manning). Official training camp doesn’t start until later this summer, but with the malaise from the minor league baseball team in town, it’s never too early to be counting the days until Manning’s debut. If you missed the news, we recently announced that Gotye will be playing Red Rocks in August.

In case you missed the new track from 3OH!3 on Reverb last week, check out the duo’s latest Skrillex -inspired single, “Do or Die.”
