Video: Arctic Monkeys – “Crying Lightning” We posted the audio stream a couple weeks ago, but here’s the official video for “Crying Lightning,” the single from Humbug, due August 25 on Domino. They’re apparently refugee zombies now…or something. Arctic Monkeys: iTunes, Amazon, Insound, wiki.
Video: of Montreal – “Mingusings” Directed by Nick Gould, wherein our hero is a fencing mime who runs around stealing televisions, chopping wood, and visiting Australia. Why not? I love that Of Montreal refuses to tone down the goofiness no matter how “successful” they become. From Skeletal Lamping, out now on Polyvinyl. MP3: Of Montreal … Continue reading New Of Montreal video: Mingusings

Video: Shelley Short – “Time Machine / Submarine” We first encountered Shelley Short when she, along with GLONO‘s own Quasar Wut-Wut, opened up for Colin Meloy of the Decemberists at Schubas a few years ago. Our pal Andy Rader even played upright bass with her for a while. Her stuff is always worth hearing, so … Continue reading Shelley Short – Time Machine / Submarine
Video: ‘It Might Get Loud’ Trailer When I first heard about this movie, I thought it sounded cheesy as shit. But this trailer looks really cool. The documentary “tells the personal stories of three generations of electric guitar virtuosos” and “reveals how each developed his unique sound and style of playing.” Am I being a … Continue reading Trailer: "It Might Get Loud" ft. Jack White, Jimmy Page, and the Edge
Video: Blitzen Trapper – “Black River Killer” New video for one of the highlights of last year’s Furr. The very literal video (“Her mouth was sewn shut, but her eyes were still wide”) has an O Brother, Where Art Thou? vibe, following the actions of the narrator as he travels the country killing people just … Continue reading New Blitzen Trapper video: Black River Killer
