The cool thing about the music video form is that, even if the song isn’t spectacular, a great video can make all the difference. Such is the case with “Blood” by the Middle East.
While I thought all the ‘best of the year’ lists popping up now would make it easier to come up with some belated nominations for our ‘Breakthrough Band’ section but in fact I had quite a hard time finding something by a newcomer band that truly made a lasting impression on me and that we haven’t covered yet.
Freddie Gibbs is another person we’ve spotlighted in Breakthrough Band, so it’s with great pleasure that we bring you the video for “What It Be Like”.
Dudes, Spencer Pratt’s album has a cover! It’s not just a CD in a little plastic sleeve that he’ll give you on the street if you walk by and make eye contact!
This is an Italian song with gibberish nosies supposed to sound like English. What it really sounds like is awesome.
We’ve waxed rhapsodic about The Drums on Heavy before, but the new video for “Let’s Go Surfing” just dropped and it’s basically precious treasure. Enjoy!
Rage Against The Machine are pretty cool… if you’re 16! No seriously, guys: yeah it’s totally rad they’re all left wing and caring, but every time some guy with a wack hairstyle throws a petulant and inarticulate tantrum over a bald dude fret-wanking it, the balance of the gentle earthsoul is being wrenched away ever further from good to bad.
Dancing is awesome. Videos with unlikely people dancing are awesomer. Following in the footsteps of Christopher Walken, I present to you the new video by UK electronic band The Presets – “If I Know You”.
The problem with Robin Thicke’s Sex Therapy: The Experience isn’t that it openly aspires to be the soundtrack to a million conceptions – let he whose parents don’t keep an Keith Jarrett album on hand cast the first stone.
Who would have thought that, of all the British bands to come and go over the last few decades, Hot Chip would end up having this kind of longevity? The new clip for “One Life Stand” is spectacular.
