Watch the Music Video for Alain Johannes, Dave Grohl & Josh Homme’s ‘Sound City’ Song ‘A Trick With No Sleeve’

Sound City Players, Music


sound city trick with no sleeve

One of the more interesting songs on Sound City: Real to Reel, the all-star soundtrack album from Dave Grohl’s Sound City Players accompanying his Sound City documentary is A Trick With No Sleeve, which combines the formidable powers of Grohl, Josh Homme and the mighty Alain Johannes.

While the song isn’t as powerful as, say, Mantra (the Grohl/Trent Reznor/Homme collaboration) or Time Slowing Down (Grohl, Brad Wilk, Tim Commerford & Chris Goss), it’s still one of the more solid cuts on the album based on its participants – and now it has its own music video – however low-budget the video may be. Watch below:

The Sound City album is out today – if you haven’t, enjoy our full album review and listen to the whole record now.

If you still haven’t bought your copy of the movie, head to the film’s website and take care of that. Make sure you catch the Sound City Players when they team up with the Meat Puppets this Thursday at SXSW.


Meanwhile, On The Internet...
