Video: Gauntlet Hair – "Keep Time"

writes:

Assaultive Denver indie duo Gauntlet Hair mine a haunted vibe in the video for “Keep Time,” a clip that finds them rummaging around industrial Portland, smashing stuff including a particular variety of squash that will make Billy Corgan very proud.

Video: Oneohtrix Point Never – “Sleep Dealer” Video

writes:

The video for Brooklyn synthwave magician Oneohtrix Point Never’s track “Sleep Dealer” might be even weirder and more disorienting than his animation-heavy video for “Replica.” In the “Sleep Dealer” clip, all we get is repeated disconnected images.

Audio: Guided By Voices – “Doughnut For A Snowman”

writes:

The quote-unquote “classic” GBV lineup have a new album on the way, a new MP3 already in your iTunes, and a new stream here for your continued enjoyment of the durable highkicking Cuervo firebrand that is Bob Pollard in Guided By Voices mode. This one features a quintessential GBV vocal harmony, it’s got an impeccable title, and it’s got the band getting busy on a recorder — like, your elementary school music teacher’s principal instrument — on the intro. What are you waiting for.

Video: Architecture In Helsinki – "W.O.W."

writes:

"W.O.W.," the new video from Aussie indie-poppers Architecture In Helsinki, follows frontman Cameron Bird as he wakes up in the morning, makes a bunch of weird field recordings, and then communes with an incredibly fake-looking dolphin puppet. From what I understand, this is just a typical day in Melbourne.

Video: Jessica 6 – "Prisoner Of Love" Video (Feat. Antony)

writes:

Nomi Ruiz, leader of New York disco-house crew Jessica 6, did a ton of singing on Hercules And Love Affair’s self-titled debut album. So did Antony Hegarty. So it’s only right that the two have teamed up again for a sort of Andy Butler-free Herc reunion, on Jessica 6′s single "Prisoner Of Love."

Video: Meet Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs

writes:

Yes, this is a music project that is called Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. You’re free to introduce the electronic/beat production wunderkind to people as T-E-E-D, though at some point you’ll also need to add that Mr. Dinosaurs dresses like a stegosaurus at shows that adulterate dance styles in a mesh of house-drum-bass-dub-bro-post-whatever-step that aims, indiscriminately, at club kids of all ilk. This is obviously not a project for purists.

Audio: Bass Drum Of Death – “I Dunno”

writes:

Oxford, Mississippi grungerage (that is, grunge/garage) duo Bass Drum Of Death landed a Fat Possum deal and released their GB City LP earlier this year, and now seem to be at work again. Today we have a demo they’ve posted to Tumblr called “I Dunno,” which is an extraordinarily non-committal (or perhaps, entirely appropriate) title for song’s rough draft. Maybe it will become something finished and mixed, maybe it will stay streaming on Tumblr forever.

writes:

So, CMJ. It’s begun. This year we decided to get our shots in early, in some sort of a sado-masochistic attempt to be as lifeless by Sunday as possible, apparently. That means a party last night, and a party tonight. For Tuesday night’s bill, we joined forces with Popgun Booking to present NJ wit/punk firebrands Titus Andronicus.

Video: Ryan Adams – "Lucky Now"

writes:

Ryan Adams has a classy, somber new black-and-white video for “Lucky Now,” the perfectly lovely new single from his album Ashes & Fire. It’s hard to say what, exactly, happens in this clip, but it involves a scary-looking punk-chick gang, a beautiful vintage Cadillac, and a stove burner ominously left on.
