New Low Cut Connie video: Hey! Little Child

Video: Low Cut Connie video: “Hey! Little Child” From Dirty Pictures (Part 2), out now on Contender Records. I heard a segment about this band on NPR last month and upon the recommendation of Ann Powers I checked them out. But the song I listened to didn’t live up to her description of “the essence … Continue reading New Low Cut Connie video: Hey! Little Child

New Regrettes video: Helpless

Video: The Regrettes – “Helpless” Single available now. I might be the last person on the planet who is completely unfamiliar with the Hamilton musical. I read the Ron Chernow book, but I dunno.

Video: The Breeders – “Joanne” (Michael Nesmith cover) All Nerve is out March 2 on 4AD. “Joanne” is not on the album. “Joanne” is one of my favorite songs of all time.

New Regrettes video: Soft Shock

Video: The Regrettes – “Soft Shock” (Yeah Yeah Yeahs cover) My favorite band covers a song from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ third album. I think they’re buying time while they’re working on their follow up to Feel Your Feelings, Fool. They played one new song (“Red Light”) in September at Riot Fest and shortly thereafter … Continue reading New Regrettes video: Soft Shock

New Regrettes video: All I Want for Christmas

Video: The Regrettes – “All I Want For Christmas is You” The absolute best part of this godawful year of 2017 for me was discovering the Regrettes.

Video: Amanda Palmer & Jherek Bischoff – “Mother” From the “In Harm’s Way” 7″, out now. “This song and music video are dedicated to the current administration. You will not build walls in our children’s hearts.” Seems like the actor who plays our orange fuhrer could’ve shaved his Chuck Todd goatee, but who asked me? … Continue reading New Amanda Palmer video: Mother (Pink Floyd cover)

New Luna video: Fire in Cairo starring Rose McGowan

Video: Luna – “Fire in Cairo” From A Sentimental Education, due September 22 on PledgeMusic/Double Features Records. My favorite era of the Cure is the Three Imaginary Boys period before they incorporated synths. They were just scrappy young punks with a clever sense of melody. Their gloomy stuff is great too, of course, but I … Continue reading New Luna video: Fire in Cairo starring Rose McGowan
