New Orville Peck video: Turn To Hate

Video: Orville Peck – “Turn To Hate” Directed by Orville Peck and Carlos Santolalla. From Pony, out now on Sub Pop. There’s been a spate of videos with dudes in masks of late, which I guess makes sense in the era of Trump and Brexit. We all have a little something to be ashamed of … Continue reading New Orville Peck video: Turn To Hate

New Peter Doherty video: Who’s Been Having You Over

Video: Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres – “Who’s Been Having You Over” Directed by Roger Sargent. From Peter Doherty & the Puta Madres, due April 26 on Strap Originals. There was a time not too long ago I was sure we were going to lose Pete Doherty. Every picture looked like it was likely … Continue reading New Peter Doherty video: Who’s Been Having You Over

Midnight Caller Episode 5

He was a spaz. So bad that he once slapped a teacher right across the face. We couldn’t believe it. The whole class froze for a moment. And then sped up very fast like an old film projector breaking loose from a jam. There was David, running around the room while we lost our minds, … Continue reading Midnight Caller Episode 5

New Cass McCombs video: Sleeping Volcanoes

Video: Cass McCombs – “Sleeping Volcanoes” From Tip of the Sphere, out now on Anti-. Man, what a great song. It’s not easy to write serious music that still has elements of whimsy and surprise, especially when you’re maybe mired in the daily drama overload of life in Americ-a-lago. The video for “Sleeping Volcanoes” is … Continue reading New Cass McCombs video: Sleeping Volcanoes

Luther Russell – Medium Cool

We get a lot of press material at GLONO. Like…a LOT. Back in the days before press kits went digital, Jake and I would get hollered at by the postal workers where our PO Box was in Chicago because they’d have to haul out all these overflow bins full of CDs, band photos and one-sheets. … Continue reading Luther Russell – Medium Cool

New King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard video: Cyboogie

Video: King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – “Cyboogie” Video by Jason Galea. Single out now on Flightless. Jake and I often talk about the lack of fun in indie rock. I mean…just look around at all the beard stroking and head nodding going on and you can just tell these folks can’t dance. Our … Continue reading New King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard video: Cyboogie

New Mekons video: Lawrence of California

Video: Mekons – “Lawrence of California” From Deserted, out on Bloodshot/Sin Records. If I’m being honest–and really, there’s no other point in doing this–this song and video are boring. That’s hard for me to say because I love that Mekons are still doing their thing, but this just isn’t…my thing. Mekons: web, twitter, amazon, apple, … Continue reading New Mekons video: Lawrence of California

New Strand of Oaks video: Weird Ways

Video: Strand of Oaks – “Weird Ways” From Eraserland, out March 22 on Dead Oceans. I’ve spent a fair amount of time in recording studios over the years. Some professional, some home studios and some just comprised of a 4-track and some SM57 microphones. I’ve spent even more time in rehearsal studios, all of which … Continue reading New Strand of Oaks video: Weird Ways

New American Football video: Silhouettes

Video: American Football – “Silhouettes” Directed by Shawn Brackbill. From American Football, due March 22 on Polyvinyl. I just recently moved to Michigan from Oregon, where I lived for almost ten years. It’s still my favorite place in the world. It’s a place of incredible natural beauty and Oregonians love to get out in it. … Continue reading New American Football video: Silhouettes

New Gary Clark Jr video: This Land

Video: Gary Clark Jr – “This Land” Directed by Savanah Leaf. From This Land, due March 1 on Warner Bros. They say turbulent times create great art, and Gary Clark Jr. has had enough of this shit. Filmed in Clark’s hometown of Austin, Texas, the video is just as striking and powerful as the chorus … Continue reading New Gary Clark Jr video: This Land
