A pretty fun music video from Thao & the Get Down Stay Down, which involves a number of different, creative facial manipulations performed on a number of actors who are all lip-syncing to this incredibly catchy track from Thao’s latest full-length album, We The Common. Enjoy!
The vocal samples on “Speakers R-4 (Sounds)” may make a pretty obvious statement, but the track is still a pretty spacious and captivating piece of footwork. RP Boo, a.k.a. Kavain Space, is a Chicago-based producer, and one of the originators of a fast, jittery electronic music style known as footwork. He’s got a new full-length out via Planet Mu titled Legacy. Enjoy!
A new music video from Kendrick Lamar with toys with some comedic and dramatic ideas involving partying, death, violence. There’s even a call for the death of Molly at the end of the video. The themes are nice, but it’s really the visuals on this video that impress: a somber funeral where attendees are dressed in white, rolling hills behind a beautiful and grassy field, and a funeral procession that looks more like an all-out party.
This track comes from Lamar’s latest full-length, Good Kid m.A.A.d City, which you can catch a review for below:
Some fast, jagged, angular, wild, spastic, and some what zany post-hardcore from the guys in Let’s Talk Daggers. The trio just dropped a new full-length in March titled Fantastic Contraption. I’m gonna give the full-length a listen as soon as I make heads or tails of this video!
An eerie fusion of electronic music and hip hop on this new track from When Saints Go Machine, “Love and Respect,” which is a cut from the Danish quartet’s new album, Infinity Pool. It’s dropping this week via EMI Records and !K7 Records.
Over the past week or so, Queens of the Stone Age have been dropping a number of animated music videos featuring tracks from their next album, …Like Clockwork. “If I Had A Tail” is one of the heavier tracks to be released thus far, and it features a pretty bluesy guitar solo as well! Enjoy, and look for …Like Clockwork‘s official release at the start of next month.
A video of the Portico Quartet performing their track “Ruins” live for Boiler Room. The track comes from the experimental jazz outfit’s latest, self-titled album, which you can catch a review for below. This video is actually a part of a series of recently performed tracks by the quartet. Watch s’more of ‘em here.
Singer-songwriter Har Mar Superstar–a.k.a. Sean Tillmann, Sean Na Na–is a dude that’s difficult to put into works. While he’s not the only musical revivalist working in the industry today. he’s certainly more convincing than your average neo-new waver thanks to his passionate voice and full embrace of the stylistic kitsch that came with the soul, funk, and disco movement of the 60s and 70s. While his passion for this era is clear, he also seems to be fully aware of how preposterous “reviving” a style of music can be. He’s certainly gotten his yucks on numerous album and single covers he’s fronted his music with over the years, but songwriting seems to be a pretty serious, focused effort for Har Mar. The bright horns, key change, and passionate verses on “Lady, You Shot Me” certainly feel an exercise in sincerity and love for the sounds of soul. Even though being born in modern times has essentially kept him from being a part of soul, soul is clearly a part of him. Enjoy!
Har Mar Superstar’s new album, Bye Bye 17, is out now on Cult Records.
A fun, nutty video from the boys in Foxygen for one of my favorite tracks from their latest album, which you can check a review for below. If you dig on ghost towns, cowboy hats, car crashes, and weird faces, then this video will totally be up your alley. Enjoy!
Some twisted visuals coming through on the new Queens of the Stone Age video for “I Appear Missing,” which is a newly released track that’s set to be released on the band’s next album, …Like Clockwork. Enjoy!
