New Worriers video: The Possibility

Video: Worriers – “The Possibility” From Survival Pop, out now on SideOneDummy. This sounds like college to me. From the opening line (“Count down the months til you move out of the house”) to the Mascis lead guitar lines, combined with themes of dealing with your parents and insecurities about relationships, it’s three minutes of … Continue reading New Worriers video: The Possibility

New Green Day video: Back In The USA

Video: Green Day – “Back In The USA” From Greatest Hits: God’s Favorite Band, out now on Reprise. Good old Green Day. I remember the first time I saw the “Longview” video 23 years ago I couldn’t believe they let a band so ugly and pimply on MTV. “This is real punk rock,” I said … Continue reading New Green Day video: Back In The USA

New Amanda Palmer video: Mother (Pink Floyd cover)

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 Sleigh Bells video: And Saints

Video: Sleigh Bells – “And Saints” From Kid Kruschev, out now on Torn Clean. This is spooky. Norwegian black metal bands, cheerleaders with skull masks, bloody tears, grim reapers. It’s the worst pep assembly ever. And the song is just as creepy, with a narrator so strung out even the pizza man notices. My mom … Continue reading New Sleigh Bells video: And Saints

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. I hate the type of people who choose to move there. I hate Los Angeles’ clichéd idea of “rock and roll” with all the dudes with … Continue reading New Starcrawler video: I Love LA

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. I first heard him way back in 1999 when downloading songs from the Internet was brand new and Svenonius had a band called the Make Up. I probably read something about them in a Greil Marcus … Continue reading New Escape-ism video: Walking in the Dark

New Dream Wife video: Let’s Make Out

Video: Dream Wife – “Let’s Make Out” From Dream Wife, out January 26 on Lucky Number. Meet me by the car Cause it’s not parked very far We’re spending time And we’re wasting our youth I like Rakel Mjöll’s phrasing, how she crams a bunch of words into the end of each line in the … Continue reading New Dream Wife video: Let’s Make Out

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. If you dug Beck’s Mellow Gold-era b-sides, you’ll appreciate “Beepers & Beepers.” Werewolf Diskdrive is the new project … Continue reading New Werewolf Diskdrive video: Beepers & Beepers
