New Afghan Whigs video: Oriole

At first I thought, “This is what you get when you give 13 year old boys cameras, a budget and free reign to shoot a music video.” I mean, really: It’s got naked girls running around as stoned witches in the woods with knives and fire. Kinda the perfect video, right?

It turns out that this is the work of acclaimed erotic art director, Amy Nicole Hood.  She’s got an aesthetic to be loved: Witchy, 60s pulp-inspired erotica. Even her Instagram gets the motor running.

The Afghan Whigs – Oriole [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

It all makes for a nice augmentation for the Afghan Whigs’ latest single, which itself is a spooky, smoky song with Greg Dulli’s usual bit of simmering danger.

From the album, In Spades, available now from the Sub Pop Mega Mart.

Read a cool interview with Amy Hood: Sex, Power, and the Female Gaze: How Amy Hood Seized the Reins. Her book, Cult Classic, asks the question: “What could possess two young beauties to kidnap a Hollywood starlet and drag her bound and gagged into the California desert for ritual sex and human sacrifice?”

It’s a heavy video, for sure, ending with red heads being rounded up and executed and there’s a bit of naughty action here and there so YouTube has apparently pulled M.I.A.’s new video “Born Free” after just one day. The BBC’s Newsbeat quotes a YouTube spokesperson, “On YouTube the rules prohibit content like pornography or gratuitous violence,” the spokesperson said.

You can see the video in question on M.I.A.’s site (or below).

Dandies starting their own label

Capitol Records dumped them after their last album sold only 38,000 units, so now the Dandy Warhols are launching their own label. The Billboard article reveals some interesting details about their contract with Capitol:

“Our records were recouping and making money for them because of all the licensing, but they weren’t promoting us or paying attention.”

…Capitol owned 50% of the masters in perpetuity. This meant the band had to split any licensing income with a label it felt was doing nothing else for it. Faced with the knowledge that their licensing income had outweighed their sales income, the Dandys wanted to create a deal where they could call the shots and reap the benefits of their placements.
