New Quasar Wut-Wut video: Mandatory Days

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

New St. Vincent video: Savior (piano version)

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)

New L.A. Witch – Baby in Blue Jeans

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. Witch – Baby in Blue Jeans

New (Old) Costello: Suspect My Tears

Video: Elvis Costello & The Imposters – “Suspect My Tears” Directed by Mustashrik. From Look Now, due October 12 on Concord Records. “Suspect My Tears” is ostensibly by Elvis Costello and the Imposters. Elvis is certainly front, center and foremost on the orchestration, for a full-throated orchestration it is. And, no doubt, Nieve, Thomas and … Continue reading New (Old) Costello: Suspect My Tears

New Laura Gibson video: Domestication

Video: Laura Gibson – “Domestication” From Goners, due October 26 on Barsuk. You know how we feel about cults around here. We love ’em!

I was thinking a lot about shape-shifting. … Continue reading New Laura Gibson video: Domestication

New Robyn Hitchcock video: Sayonara Judge

Video: Robyn Hitchcock – “Sayonara Judge” Directed by Hugh Hales-Tooke. From Robyn Hitchcock, out now on Yep Roc. Everybody knows that he’s been obsessed with Syd Barrett but it’s weird when Robyn Hitchcock sounds like post-Barrett Pink Floyd. This could almost be an outtake from The Wall. Losing my face, losing my friends, losing my … Continue reading New Robyn Hitchcock video: Sayonara Judge

New Death Valley Girls video: (One Less Thing) Before I Die

Video: Death Valley Girls – “(One Less Thing) Before I Die” Directed by Kansas Bowling. From Darkness Rains out today on Suicide Squeeze.

Director Kansas Bowling was there and the … Continue reading New Death Valley Girls video: (One Less Thing) Before I Die

New Marc Ribot and Tom Waits video: Bella Ciao

Video: Marc Ribot – “Bella Ciao (Goodbye Beautiful)” (ft. Tom Waits) Directed by Jem Cohen. From Songs Of Resistance 1942 – 2018, out now on Anti. It’s always news when Tom Waits does anything.
