KaiserCartel are American duo Courtney Kaiser (former backing singer for John Mellencamp and for the Wallflowers) and Benjamin Cartel based in Brooklyn, NY.
March Forth was the band’s second record, originally released in 2008, which spawned the response…”Kaiser and Cartel just might be the Sonny and Cher of the indie-pop world.”

Given the way people actually watch music videos these days, or even the way they straight-up listen to music, a YouTube Music Awards show makes way more sense than, say, the continued existence of the MTV Video Music Awards. And this fall, the website will kick off its first-ever annual awards show. As Billboard reports, the people at YouTube have tapped Spike Jonze, arguably the greatest music-video director ever, to be the show’s creative director, which strikes me as a very smart decision. Actor and former Phantom Planet drummer Jason Schwartzman will host the show, and the list of performers will include Arcade Fire, Lady Gaga, and Eminem. Check out a preview video below:
The 90-minute show goes down 11/3 at New York’s Pier 36, and we’ll presumably learn about the live webcast soon.
