  The latest video treatment from Cascine signed producer and Twin Shadow bassist Russ Manning’s Rush Midnight project follows a group of glammed-up bad girls as they explore on the night, walking around looking for fun, finding boys and cruising on BMX bikes.

VIDEO: Urban Homes – “Ayran Gifbek Mersi”

Started in 2008, Cologne’s Urban Homes started as “almost exclusively a post-punk outfit.” Cutting their teeth playing ranks in punk and hardcore acts of the Rhine region for a decade plus, these four members do something notably different on Centres, their sprawling, five-song debut proper under the Urban Homes moniker. Released for the German Altin Village & Mine imprint...

Member of the Giallo Disco family (Based somewhere between “Berlin and Vienna,” remember), Antoni Maiovvi  released a new EP, Stockholm Synthdrone back in September and now opening tune, “Darkroom” just got the video treatment.

Video: Nightlands- “I Fell in Love With a Feeling”

The side-project of Philadelphia-based bassist Dave Hartley (The War on Drugs), the Nightlands moniker produced one of the absolute best records I heard back in 2010- Forget the Mantra. Self-releasing- then quickly inking with his other band’s label, Secretly Canadian- Hartley crafts whimsical, sub-cosmic pop that now, based on the below tune as evidence, seems cleaned up to...

Video: Hoax- “Fantasy”

MA act Hoax are a no-frills sort of hardcore band, brutal and dangerous to the best effect- drenched in blood, sweat and anger. That photo above is from their Power of the Riff LA daytime appearance earlier this year. Their 7″s seem impossible for record stores to keep stocked and their latest video for “Future,” (from their last...

Video: Spook Houses- “Bad Sound”

New Jersey high school friends Colin Alexander and David Breton lead the lo-fi indie quartet Spook Houses;  brash and developed, the band produce a sound way beyond their years going after indie royalty like Pavement, The Microphones, Modest Mouse or Frog Eyes. The band’s recently-released debut, Trying is varied, paced and could very well be one of the current...

Video Premiere: Love Migrate - Making This Hard

Video Premiere: Love Migrate – Making This Hard

Featuring two members of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Australia’s Love Migrate walk a much different path that those former Grab Bag-featured garage partiers. Filmed over “three freezing nights” in the Main Range National Park, Queensland, the Dylan Wiehahn (Active Child and Mosman Alder) video below spotlights the stark beauty of both the composition it’s accompanying and the subject it’s documenting. Dylan...
Bloc Party Do Intimate Return Show, Tease Almost Entire New LP

Bloc Party Do Intimate Return Show, Tease Almost Entire New LP

It’s been four years since UK outfit Bloc Party released their fragrant, electronic-hinged third LP, Intimacy.

His latest release for Living Tapes is the very limited cassette, Perpetual Flood, which you...
Petite Noir- Till We Ghosts

Petite Noir- Till We Ghosts

Yannick Ilunga is a 21-year-old South African that mixes bleak electronica, Afro-centric flutters and R&B delicacy all lost in repeat over post punk’s forefathers for his Petite Noir guise- The Guardian called it ” Joy Division meets Paul Simon in Graceland.”  A former member of the electro-oriented outfit Popskarr, the Noir material finds this Capetown producer...
Brussels Express

Brussels Express

Brussels Express is a beautiful documentary about two of the only bicycle messengers in the very congested city of Brussels, where as it stands, only boasts a 4% cycling traffic rate. Even for myself, a bicycle commuter in Smog City, that number is low. Directed, shot & edited by Sander Vandenbroucke. 19 minutes.

LIVE: New Order in NYC 1981

I usually don’t repost content, but this little gem from Dangerous Minds was just too good to pass up. After the suicide of their revered singer Ian Curtis in 1980, the surviving members of Joy Division- still having plans for a debut American tour in their minds- regrouped as New Order and took an extended...
The Nocturnes Get Flexi with "Love"

The Nocturnes Get Flexi with “Love”

This past weekend left me exhausted. After Thanksgiving, a bike race and Morrissey (photos soon!), I was pretty well cached come Sunday when I opened up the new copy of LA Record and something fell out. The project of Red Sparowes guitarist Emma Ruth Rundle, The Nocturnes play a delicate and moody shoegaze / gothic...
