We dig Margaret Cho’s new video for her comedy track, Hey Big Dog, which features the imitable Fiona Apple. The video was directed by Al Ridenour.
Yelle is fronted and named by Yelle, nee Julie Budet, a sparky gamine with a deceptively demure schoolgirl voice, joined by producers Grand Marnier (Jean-Francois Perrier) and Tepr (Tanguy Destable). We love the video for their new track, Safari Disco Club.

Check out the sound of De Staat, Holland’s critically acclaimed alternative rock band, whose sound has been compared to Dead Weather, Captain Beefhart, Nick Cave, Queens Of The Stone Age, and Tom Waits. Phew! That’s quite a list.
New York-based duo, Acrylics, have debuted the video for Nightwatch, the fifth track off their forthcoming full-length album, Lives and Treasure. The video for Nightwatch was a collaboration with House Plants, and was filmed on location at The Wassaic Project, an upstate New York oasis of spooky ancient buildings, ominous rivers, and eerie landscapes that […]
Brooklyn’s Robin Bacior released the Raised For Night EP last Autumn and the resulting four songs are simply gorgeous. For a limited time, she’s letting you head over to her bandcamp page and download the entire EP for free.
Mogwai recently premiered their great new track San Pedro, another ripping offering from their cheekily titled new album, Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will, which will be released on February 15 on Sub Pop Records.
