Singer/songwriter Matt Nathanson’s new video “Mission Bells” looks back to the horror films of Alfred Hitchcock for inspiration. He says: “we shot it in San Francisco as an homage to the great Alfred Hitchcock. The idea was to make the kind of video you might have seen if you watched “120 minutes” back in the day… which was MTV’s show dedicated to alternative bands like The Cure & Love and Rockets. The video was directed by Fort Ripper, who rule. [...]
The Editors are back for album number four – it’s called The Weight of Your Love and it’s out July 1st in the U.K. (unconfirmed if U.S. release in 7/2/13). A video for the first single, “A Ton of Love”, is below. Now – I’ve enjoyed the bands music more and more as time, and their discography, as evolved. I have to say I quite like this song, but not because the band has boldly forged in any new direction. I [...]
Blame the incredibly long shadow of “Weird Al” Yankovic or the crop of so many dime-a-dozen parodists dropping quickly-crafted goofs on YouTube, but it always feels that The Lonely Island are criminally underrated. Sure, the trio of writer/actors Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccome and Akiva Schaeffer have earned plenty of acclaim for their daffy song satire, thanks to their beloved Digital Shorts on Saturday Night Live , where Samberg acted and Taccome wrote for several years. Some of these clips, including the ’90s R&B pastiche “ Dick in a Box ” [...]
Bowie has become quite a sneaky one. He announced his latest album The Next Day seemingly out of the blue, and has followed suit with videos for “Where Are We Now” and “The Stars (Are Out Tonight).” He’s done it again, slipping his latest video onto the Web late at night when people who know what’s good for them are sleeping. The video clip for “The Next Day” has it all. Gary Oldman? Check. Marion Cotillard? Check. Bowie as a [...]
Pop bottles-in REALLY slow motion-with Vampire Weekend!!
Like the deranged cousin of “Our House”, T.W.i.N.’s debut single “Found A Flat” is hypnotic pop that will stick in your head long after the final note plays itself out. Duo Laurence and Hugo went from composing the gay porn series “Indie Boys” to this and while I can’t say I was previously familiar with their score work, I can say that if it sounds like this it might be worth checking out (Kids, ask your parents first)! One of [...]
We didn’t start the fire. Neither did Alicia Keys and Maxwell, in this new video.
Frank Ocean gets lost in the latest clip from “Channel: Orange.”
Do you still not have Gozu’s The Fury Of A Patient Man? Oh, you do? Good, then the video for “Bald Bull” will just let you appreciate the band more (For all you others out there, there is no excuse for not boarding the Gozu train anymore!!!!!). The lead track off The Fury…. is already a barn burner but you add some visuals to an already scorching track and you’re playing with fire for reals (Like all the heat references [...]
A new Sigur Ros video? You know it’s gonna be worth watching!
Fall Out Boy is not messing around. On the latest single/video off the highly anticipated Save Rock And Roll (Due April 16th), we see how the boys ended up in so much trouble in the video for “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)” and it is not pretty. Be warned, if you care about Patrick Stump at all, this video may not be for you. As for the song itself, “The Phoenix” still has some rousing electronics underneath but for the most part it sees [...]
