One (actually two) of the biggest and baddest festivals each year, Reading and Leeds just announced their initial lineups: The Stroke, Muse, The National, Interpol, Jane’s Addiction, 2 Many DJs, Warpaint, Madness, The Streets, Crystal Castles – it goes on and on.
This video was filmed over the course of six months in Seattle and Bellingham, WA. More than 50 volunteers animated the various scenes to later be combined with digital stills and Super 8 video. Impressive.
So far, Max, Aaron and Glen are strike-out artists with the ladies, helpless against LA’s stiletto set, until Johnny Eyelash schools them on the game. What they don’t account for is the Two Wendys and their all-girl T.O.B. club made for breaking hearts and draining bank accounts.
From their new album, Twelve Desperate Straight Lines. I think I sense a band crush coming on.
“Marriage” was a stand out track on Gold Panda’s 2010 release Lucky Shiner, and now has been released as a single. Director Ronni Shendar shot the video on location in Germany, India, and Israel. Unremarkable in concept, the video is still quite charming.
JJ Abrams and Steven Spielberg. This could be amazing or tragically terrible. In 1979, a group of friends witness a train crash while making a super 8 movie and suspect it was not an accident. Disappearances and strange events begin to take place in town as they try to uncover the truth.
LA quartet and indie poppers Dum Dum girls were called the answer to the question “What if the Bangles and the Cure had mated in 1982?” This is the first single from their new EP, He Gets Me High.
Grouplove perform “Colours” live at Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop during KEXP’s broadcast from this year’s SXSW.
When Blu, a domesticated macaw from small-town Minnesota, meets the fiercely independent Jewel, he takes off on an adventure to Rio de Janeiro with this bird of his dreams. Jesse Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway lend their voices to the upcoming blockbuster.
A nice little ditty from Ninja Tune’s Wagon Christ (who is actually Luke Vibert), the real show stopper here is the amazing animation. Enjoy the trip.
