Each week there’s a whole host of new videos released that we’d love to share with you but sadly time never permits.
However there’s no reason for us not to get to Saturday & put a few of them together into a randomly numbered list of our favourites.
Here’s this week’s list.
So what did we miss? There’s bound to be something. Let us know in the comments.
Divorce – Stabby Stab (With Sax)
The band commonly known around these parts as “arguably the best band in world” have a new album set for release on Monday (also called Divorce & which you can buy / order a copy of here) & this week they linked us up to this video from their launch party. On this they’re joined by a saxophonist (James Swinburne) who does his best to invoke the spirit of John Zorn which, of course, compliments with the bands No Waveyness perfectly. Rad as f**k. (Watch this space for an album review).
Dirty Projectors – Hi Custodian
P4k (that’s Pitchfork for those of you who aren’t hip enough to know) this week dropped this long awaited short film written and directed by the Dirty Projectors David Longstreth. Clocking in at a tad over 20 mins it “features several recordings and alternate versions of new Dirty Projectors songs, in addition to other new and unreleased music.” Kick back with a brew & enjoy.
Buke & Gase – Misshaping Introduction
Was gonna just stick the word “jittery” under this one (coz it’s jittery) but decided that’d be a lazy thing to do no matter how accurate. Brooklyn duo Buke & Gase released their new digital EP Function Falls this week & accompanied the release with this (jittery) video.
P.O.S. – Fuck Your Stuff
P.O.S has a new album out on 23rd October & this is one of the tracks off it, Fuck Your Stuff, directed by Isaac Gale and David Jensen.
OFF! – Momma’s Boys
A mini doc which follows OFF! on a recent trip to Brooklyn. It includes the band chatting about their Mums & has a live performance around the middle.
Bonnie “Prince” Billy – Time To Be Clear
It’s animation & it’s sad & it was the highlight track from last years “Wolfroy Goes to Town”.
Smoke DZA x Harry Fraud – Kenny Powers
Apparently this is an “…ode to the world’s douchiest baseball player” while also being about “…everyone’s favorite baseball badass”. Right.
Bat For Lashes – Marilyn
Another trailer for another album, this time Bat For Lashes “The Haunted Man” which drops on Oct 15th.
Transit – “Motorcycle Drive By”
Boston pop-punk band Transit posted a video this weeks of themselves performing a cover of Third Eye Blind’s ”ËMotorcycle Drive By’.
ALT-J – Fitzpleasure
Alt-J (or Ã¢Ëâ for those of us rocking a Mac) were, of course, one of the better inclusions in this weeks Mercury prize nominations list. The guys have come a long way since that first single that was released by Loud & Quiet, as you can tell from this rather spiffy video.
Flying Lotus – Small Moments
Another album amuse bouche, this one features annoyingly wee previews from the new Flying Lotus’s album ‘Until The Quiet Comes’, out October 1st/2nd on Warp Records. Can. Not. Wait.
As I Lay Dying – A Greater Foundation
New music video for “A Greater Foundation” by As I Lay Dying.
Death Grips – Interview
Captain Murphy – The Killing Joke
The mysterious, mega hyped Captain Murphy released a new video this week, one that was recorded and produced by Flying Lotus. Great video.
Mission of Burma – Semi-Pseudo-Sort-of Plan
Long running post-punk legendsÃÂ Mission of BurmaÃÂ released their latest albumÃÂ Unsound over the Summer. Semi-Pseudo-Sort-of Plan was one of the tracks off it.
“Absu – Hall of the Masters”
It’s that time in the video roundup where I drop a little Texan Black Metal. Grizzly stuff.
Propagandhi – Hard Time
A video of Propagandhi (with Rise Against Bassist Joe Principe) covering Cro Mags Hard Time emerged last week. It’s high NRG stuff.
Divorce – Aids of Space
Just in case anyone didnae believe me when I professed my undying love for this bunch of noise terrorists up at top of tut page here’s a second video of them, one that also came to our ken this week. Another track off their debut album (released on Monday remember?) which you can order / buy here.
