Raconteurs Launch New Video, "Antique Roadshow" Knockoff

November 12, 2008 9:00 AM ET

The Raconteurs have unveiled a new video for their Consolers Of The Lonely track "Old Enough." The clip finds the band gallivanting through a forest of mirrors, with Jack White dressed like he's reprising his character from Cold Mountain. What's surprising about the video is how it has absolutely nothing to do with the Antique Roadshow-inspired viral site the Raconteurs rolled out yesterday. Over at the From Old To Gold website, the band asks fans to upload video of "treasured items and thrift store finds" and the band will tell you if it's "old...or gold." Thus far, no additional videos have been posted to the site's YouTube page, but you should still check out the humorous clip that kicked off the search for antiques here.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
