Video: Quasar Wut-Wut – “Mandatory Days” From Digesting Mirror, out sometime this year (hopefully). We love Quasar Wut-Wut. A lot. So much that we dumped our early 2000’s fortune into launching a record label to put out their brilliant album, Taro Sound. And let me tell you, there was a time when websites like this … Continue reading New Quasar Wut-Wut video: Mandatory Days

Video: St. Vincent – “Savior” (piano version) Directed by Bobcat Goldthwait. From MassEducation, out now on Loma Vista. This is nuts. When I first heard the new version of this song I doubted that it was just Annie Clark’s voice and a piano. You can clearly hear a plucked bass and strummed guitar chords. Or … Continue reading New St. Vincent video: Savior (piano version)

Two of the things that have long fascinated me are (1) what makes a band a band and (2) why performers continue to perform long after ordinary people move on to something else in their lives besides that which created their livelihoods. As for the first point, the issue is that of membership and then … Continue reading The Chain, Broken

Video: L.A. WITCH – “Baby in Blue Jeans” From L.A. Witch, out now on Suicide Squeeze. Oh man, while their last single we covered (“Drive Your Car”) was a badass rave-up garage stomper, “Baby in Blue Jeans” is a slow burner with hints of early Spaceman 3 or some of the trippier elements of the … Continue reading New L.A.
