Video: Plushgun – “Let Me Kiss You Now (And I’ll Fade Away)” Saw this video on Subterranean this week and I like it a lot. Directed by Ana Veselic for only $99. A cute girl, a bar fight, and a couple of ukuleles: what more could you want? It’s from their album, Pins & Panzers, … Continue reading Plushgun – Let Me Kiss You Now (And I’ll Fade Away)
Video: Miniature Tigers – Cannibal Queen Saw this video on Subterranean this weekend and thought for sure that was Will Forte or at least his younger brother. Wikipedia tells me it isn’t. Still a great video and a super catchy song. Video was directed by the Yacht Rock guy and features a cameo from Derek … Continue reading Miniature Tigers – Cannibal Queen
We just received this memo from Dylan Burr, famous from the Faces Don’t Lie series here on GLONO: Lorus is playing tonight at Subterranean with Dub Trio. You may know them better as the backing band for Mike Patton’s Peeping Tom. We’re super excited for this show. It’s the first show with our new drummer. … Continue reading Lorus Live in Chicago
MP3: Throw Me The Statue – “Lolita” from Moonbeams, out now on Secretly Canadian. Saw this video on Subterranean recently. Great, Violent Femmesy vibe right down to the acoustic breakdowns and glockenspiel. Video: Throw Me The Statue – “Lolita” (QT) Video directed by Matt Daniels. Throw Me The Statue: Web, MySpace, eMusic.
Video: MGMT – “Time To Pretend” I guess this is old news, but I just saw this video for the first time on Subterranean last week (higher-resolution QT version). Holy moly, this is as accurate a portrayal of the how it feels to be on drugs as anything I’ve seen or heard since that first … Continue reading MGMT – Time To Pretend
MP3: “You’re a Wolf” by Sea Wolf from Get to the River Before It Runs Too Low, out now on Dangerbird. Finally! A “wolf” band I actually like! This band doesn’t sound anything like Modest Mouse or Black Sabbath. Saw their video on Subterranean, which erroneously listed the band as “Sa Wolf.” MTV apparently needs … Continue reading Sea Wolf – You’re a Wolf
Caught both of these on a recent episode of Subterranean (a show which has been made exponentially better by the firing of its on-air “personality,” Jim Shearer). First up, here’s the latest offering from the over-hyped (but who cares?) Arctic Monkeys. You don’t need to understand all the lyrics to know they’re still making kick-ass … Continue reading Two Great New Videos from the UK
“Destroyer (Demo Version)” by the Stills. Saw the video for the album version (which is better) on Subterranean and liked it. From Without Feathers (Vice).
“You’re So Pretty” by Field Music from Field Music (Memphis Industries). Saw their video for “You’re Not Supposed To” (QT) on Subterranean. Contains a former member of the Futureheads. More mp3s on their site.
“Sister In Love” by Envelopes, from Demon (Brille). Saw this homemade video (QT) on Subterranean last week and loved it. Lo-fi Swedish goodness.
