A Selection Of This Weeks Best Videos. 25th Aug.

Each week there’s a whole host of new video’s 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 weeks list.

So what did we miss? There’s bound to be something. Let us know in the comments.

Dub Pistols ‘Rock Steady’ – feat. Rodney P & Lindy Layton

In preparation for their Notting Hill Carnival performance this weekend, the Dub Pistols released this new carnival themed video for ‘Rock Steady’.

The Joy Formidable – Wolf’s Law

Joy Formidable are back! And they’re back in epic style with an epic video esp for the nature fans amongst you. Oh, and you can download the track for free from here.

Gold Panda – Trust

Ok, so strictly speaking this isn’t a video at all but what it is is new Gold Panda so I think you can let us off this once yeah? This track’s web ripped from MAH’s Music Response show & was uploaded to YT with a generic image. As Ms ‘obbs herself says in her intro, “This is, absolutely exquisite”. Not half it is.

The Cult “Honey From a Knife.”

The Cult this week posted a video for “Honey From a Knife.” The song is the latest single from Choice of Weapon & was shot in Washington Heights, a neighborhood in New York City. Apologies for the advert prior to the video, fraid there was no way around it.

Mala – The Tunnel

You can tell the Brownswood team are confident this release is gonna be massive as they keep on dropping little tasters off it left right & centre. The first two tracks, Calle F and Cuba Electronic, were obvious nods to Cuba itself, this latest track though may start off wearing it’s Cuba influence on it’s sleeve but quite quickly it drops into a deep, old skool Digital Mystikz baseline that carries the track to it’s conclusion. Heavy n groovin’ n flippin’ sick.

Smoke Fairies – Let Me Know

This track’s off the band’s latest album & see’s the band performing on a London rooftop as the sun filters behind the city.

Factory Floor – Two Different Ways (Perc Remix)

Something to look forward to, on Monday DFA will be releasing a remix single of Factory Floor’s bombastic track “Two Different Ways”. It’s going to feature four versions of the track including this one by producer Ali Wells.

Menomena “Capsule”

There’s a new Menomena album due for release on September 18th called Moms. This is the slightly more poppy than usual first track off of it.

The Gaslamp Killer – Flange Face [feat. Miguel Atwood-Ferguson]

In anticipation of the release of his debut full-length album Breakthrough, the Gaslamp Killer offered up a taste of what to expect this week by releasing Flange Face / Seven Years of Bad Luck for Fun as a digital download.

Bob Mould – The Descent

New material from former Hüsker Dü leader as an amuse bouche prior to the release of his next album, Silver Age, due to drop 4th Sept. It’s a cracker.

Tender Trap – Step One

You’ve probably noticed we like Tender Trap over here. They released a new single earlier in the week, Step One, on the ace Fortuna Pop! label. You can mark this one down as this weeks ear worm.

Apologies, I Have None – Long Gone

New video from the band, taken from their album ‘London’.

Peaking Lights – “Dreambeat” (Official Video)

New cut from the duo’s recent album Lucifer, a well produced video showing off the bands by now familiar brand of electronic dreampop.

Peaking Lights – “Dreambeat” (Official Video) from Urban Outfitters on Vimeo.

JJ DOOM’s ”ËœGuv’nor’

One of the best actual video’s of the week is this by the duo of Jneiro Jarel and DOOM. It features a track directed by Ninian Doff as part of Rizlab, “a project created to allow pioneering artists to freely experiment to create interesting and innovative music experiences.”

Shonen Knife – Ghost Train(少年ナイフ)

A track from the long-running pop-punk outfit’s 2012 album, Pop Tune. Ghost train, oh yeah.

Major Lazer – Get Free ft. Amber of the Dirty Projectors

Ending with what’ll be undoubtedly one of the tracks of the year this features the mighty Diplo and Amber from Dirty Projectors & was shot in Jamaica. The single previews Major Lazer’s forthcoming album, Free The Universe, due out November 6th.

Guy is a former full time member of the Louder Than War editorial team, who's since moved on to pastures new. Music's been a large part of his life since he first stumbled across Peel on his tranny as a fifteen year old. His whole approach to music was learnt from Peel in fact, which includes having as inclusive a taste in music as possible. Guy devotes most of his time looking for new music & although he's been known to say "the only good music is new music" he pretty much accepts this is bollocks. Favourite band The Minutemen.
