I came across this Ontario band thanks to NPR’s awesome Tiny Desk concerts. Built around singer and songwriter Tony Dekker, this is music that really touches the soul. This video is a three-song set which includes Everything is Moving So Fast, Pulling on a Line and Various Stages. His voice and music makes me wonder […]
My new EP, The Sudden Stop, was released worldwide on February 14. I use songs to tell myself things I need to hear. As a kind of therapy, I guess. I see two versions of myself with different characteristics. These two guys are at it most of the time, constantly arguing. I kind of write […]
If you’re looking for a good laugh, you should definitely check out Wax’s latest video for his tune, Rosana. It’s Spanish flavored and infused with more then a hint of Mexican. In fact, you could liken the clip to a perfect burrito. It’s outer tortilla is the catchy beat which holds the song together, with […]
Caffeine Machine’s Quinn Arlington Waters has put out his third music video, Untitled #8, from the album Race Music. It employs the use of the glitch technique known as Data Moshing to get an edgy yet psychadelic effect insted of straight cuts. It’s like being squeezed out of a playdough machine at the end of […]
Flashing lights, video games, glow sticks, and a giant fake ear. The San Francisco noise band Deerhoof grabbed a bunch of random video clips and mixed them all together to make you want to dance. Their new music video for We Do Parties will make you feel like an ADD kid at an arcade, so […]
Sia is one of my favourite Australian musicians, known for her quirky pop songs and voice that makes easy work of big ballads. Way back in 2008, she released a vivid and colourful music video to accompany her song, Soon We’ll Be Found. Incorporating a great deal of sign language, the video never fails to […]
I was lucky enough to catch the Alterna-Punk band Future Of The Left on tour in St. Louis this winter while I was home for the holidays. I have been a fan of Andy ‘Falco’ Falkous for years, going back to his previous band Mclusky. He is a force of nature. This show featured a […]
Flashing lights, neon colors, flying sparks, and unnerving blank masks. Crystal Castles never ceases to deliver subtly twisted imagery that makes me want to cry and dance at the same time. Something about the dark, moody grunge of it is very appealing as the scenes flip back and forth. I feel like I’m watching someone’s […]
Roger Ballen is an American geologist, living in South Africa, who is very much on top of the photography world. He directed the stunning video for Die Antwood’s I Fink U Freaky, amongst other notable achievements. Yes, he’s a true master.
Jeff Leopard is my new song for the week, but I’m loving the whole album. I’ve been waiting on it since I heard them a few months back. The video by Jonny Sanders is also great. If you like Holy Fuck, Battles, and LITE, you should like Gallops.
Lola’s Bad is an amazing doom pop duo consisting of Greek singer Evangelia C and English multi-instrumentalist Bat Halliday. They work as a totally DIY project, with the help of a small group of creatives between Greece and England – producing an abrasive yet beautifully ethereal sound. It’s with great pleasure that we premiere their […]
Set to the Canopy Climbers’ single, Far, Los Angeles filmmaker Danny Brown shot an awesome music video composed of silhouettes of classically-trained dancers double exposed against the backdrop of the LA cityscape. Shot using a Krasnogrosk 16mm camera and consuming around a total of 400 feet of film, the result is simply gorgeous and inimitable.
Twin Shadow’s video for Five Seconds, a track from George Lewis Jr. and band’s new record, Confess is pretty epic. Not only is the song worthy of putting on repeat, but the video (directed by Keith Musil, with the story told my Lewis himself) features badass gangs, motorcycle stunts, amazing outfits, and heroic fight scenes.
Professor Soap has his doctorate in cool and runs his own private practice. This trippy three-part music video has got chill tunes, stop-motion sea creatures, and robot puppets. Think Lemon Jelly meets Yo Gabba Gabba. Free album download available here.
