New Bjork video: Blissing Me

Video: Björk – “Blissing Me” From Utopia, out November 24 on One Little Indian. Bjork sure is a funny little fairy, isn’t she? Look at her flitting around all ethereally while singing about “excess texting” and “sending each other mp3s.” You have to love her. She might look like an anime princess but don’t let … Continue reading New Bjork video: Blissing Me

New Yungblud video: I Love You, Will You Marry Me

Video: YUNGBLUD – “I Love You, Will You Marry Me” Single out now on Locomotion/Geffen. I heard this on satellite radio this weekend and of course I found it irresistible. My first inclination, of course, judging solely on the spelling and stylization of the name YUNGBLUD was to change the channel before I even got … Continue reading New Yungblud video: I Love You, Will You Marry Me

New Starcrawler video: I Love LA

Video: Starcrawler – “I Love LA” From Starcrawler, out January 19 on Rough Trade. I hate L.A. I hate what the city does to the people who move there.

New Escape-ism video: Walking in the Dark

Video: Escape-ism – “Walking in the Dark” From Introduction to Escape-ism, out now on Merge. Escape-ism is Ian Svenonius.

New Werewolf Diskdrive video: Beepers & Beepers

Video: Werewolf Diskdrive – “Beepers & Beepers” From Werewolf Diskdrive, out now on Werewolf Diskdrive. This is stupid but it’s good. There’s apparently a backstory about finding a hard drive in dumpster, but who cares? Just listen.

Forever Summer

I’ve been in bands my entire adult life. For most of that time, it was the most important element of my identity. Being in a band was not only a crucial creative outlet, but also a social space; it was how I met people beyond what is now the GLONO crew. The first band I … Continue reading Forever Summer

New MGMT video: Little Dark Age

Video: MGMT – “Little Dark Age” From Little Dark Age, due 2018 on Columbia Records. One of the reasons I love MGMT is because their music makes me feel young. That’s what good pop music does, right? It makes you tap into those long buried feelings of excitement and anticipation–for what, you don’t even know–and … Continue reading New MGMT video: Little Dark Age
