New Regrettes video: California Friends

Video: The Regrettes – “California Friends” Directed by Claire Marie Vogel. Single out now on Warner Bros. So this is the first Regrettes video without bassist Sage Chavis since she left the band in September. It features their new drummer but was apparently filmed before they found a new bass player. Chavis’ vocals are clearly … Continue reading New Regrettes video: California Friends

Rolling Stone issue #21 had a cover date of November 9, 1968. 32 pages. 35 cents. Issue #21 features the first byline of Greil Marcus, reviewing the latest record by the Who.

New Denée & Ty Segall video: Pleasure Seeker

Video: The C.I.A. – “Pleasure Seeker” Directed by Denée & Ty Segall. From their self titled debut, due in December on In The Red. Who needs guitars when you have two basses?

Vote Blue!

After the election of 2016 we made a conscious decision to keep Glorious Noise focused on sharing good new music with our readers. Everybody involved with this site is still engaged politically, and you can always follow @poljunk, our national affairs desk, but it’s important to be able to step away from the constant stream … Continue reading Vote Blue!

New Neko Case video: Last Lion of Albion

Video: Neko Case – “Last Lion of Albion” Directed by Laura Plansker. From Hell-On, out now on Anti. After releasing a couple of short little one-minute spots (“Hell-On”, “Bad Luck” and “Curse of the I-5 Corridor”), Neko Case has finally released a full-length video from her latest album, Hell-On. I originally thought these shorts were … Continue reading New Neko Case video: Last Lion of Albion

New Morrissey video: Back on the Chain Gang

Video: Morrissey – “Back on the Chain Gang” Single out November 23. Also on upcoming double-vinyl reissue of Low in High School. I’m something of a Morrissey apologist but this is not a great cover. Moz’s clunky guitar player doesn’t nail the fluidity of the Pretenders’ original lead guitar line. That part was created by … Continue reading New Morrissey video: Back on the Chain Gang

New Sharon Van Etten video: Comeback Kid

Video: Sharon Van Etten – “Comeback Kid” Directed by Jonathan William Turner. From Remind Me Tomorrow, due January 18 on Jagjaguwar. Growing up is weird. There comes a point where you barely recognize the person you used to be. It’s easy to be dismissive of your former self’s personality and character by claiming immaturity. But … Continue reading New Sharon Van Etten video: Comeback Kid

New Gerard Way video: Baby You’re A Haunted House

Video: Gerard Way – “Baby You’re A Haunted House” Directed by Claire Marie Vogel. Single out now on Reprise. I didn’t realize that this was the guy from My Chemical Romance until after I heard it. I just knew that Claire Marie Vogel (who has worked with my favorite band the Regrettes) directed the video. … Continue reading New Gerard Way video: Baby You’re A Haunted House

New Jessica Pratt video: This Time Around

Video: Jessica Pratt – “This Time Around” Directed by Laura-Lynn Petrick. From Quiet Signs, due February 8 on Mexican Summer and City Slang. Jessica Pratt’s voice sounds like it’s coming out of a stranger’s car stopped next to you at a red light. The windows are down and the sun is shining bright. It’s hot. … Continue reading New Jessica Pratt video: This Time Around

New Dandy Warhols video: Forever

Video: The Dandy Warhols – “Forever” Directed by Jacob Pander. Single available now. From Dine Alone, due in 2019 on Dine Alone. The Dandy Warhols play a group of spooky apparitions who sign away their souls to a corporate conglomerate. It’s not abundantly clear why these rich, young executives would offer a contract to a … Continue reading New Dandy Warhols video: Forever
