Video: Kane Strang – “My Smile Is Extinct”

posted by Oscar June 21, 2017

Kane Strang has shared the music video for his infectious single, “My Smile Is Extinct,” ahead of the release of his new album, Two Hearts and No Brain, out June 30th on Dead Oceans.

The video was directed by Julian Vares and it shows Strang strumming guitar and singing his dark lyrics in a charmingly low-key manner. The DIY spirit is not only heard in the song, but you can see it up in full display with a modest budget’s worth of lights, fans, cellophane, and glitter.

Watch the visual above.

Arcade Fire Share New Song/Video: “Creature Comfort”

posted by Oscar June 16, 2017

Arcade Fire are currently out touring Europe, but that hasn’t stopped them from rolling out new music from forthcoming album Everything Now.

Their latest offering is called “Creature Comfort,” which is now also available with its music video. The song is pretty straightforward lyrically, setting aside their more poetic beginnings for an approach that hits you in a simple, but equally effective mode for delivering their message, set to the beat of Industrial sounds. The song covers superficiality and its toxicity, along with the nature of insecurities; the best line is the recurring “God make me famous if you can’t just make it painless.”

Check it out above. Continue Reading

Julia Jacklin Announces New 7″; Shares Video for New Single “Eastwick”

posted by Oscar June 13, 2017

Before making her way to stages of major festivals like FYF, Glastonbury, Newport Folk, Pickathon, Splendour In The Grass and others, Julia Jacklin has announced a new 7″ to be released via Polyvinyl Recording Co. on September 15th.

Jacklin, who debuted on our pages thanks to her stellar, dreamy live cover of The Strokes’ “Someday,” has also shared the visual for first single “Eastwick.” The track builds slowly, Jacklin’s vocal gliding you through the serene vibes until you hear the full band kick in. The chunky guitar solo provides excellent contrast, charging at you with a steady pace but not without leaving its mark. Check that out in the music video above.

Jacklin recently stopped by NPR Music to perform a quietly dazzling Tiny Desk concert; watch now after the jump.

Today Jacklin also announces a US headline tour for November plus three East Coast dates alongside Mitski in July (all details below). Continue Reading

PJ Harvey and Ramy Essam Share “The Camp” Video

posted by Oscar June 7, 2017

PJ Harvey and Egyptian recording artist Ramy Essam have partnered on new record “The Camp,” a track they co-wrote in hops of raising awareness and much needed support towards the health and educational well-being of displaced children in the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon.

The artists will donate all net profits from the track to Beyond Association in the Bekaa Valley, a national Lebanese non-Governmental Organization. Beyond Association provides services such as access to education, healthcare, and psycho-social support mainly through art therapy, neuro-physiotherapy, and recreational activities.

“It is hard to comprehend the scale of the crisis in Lebanon, a country of 4 million now hosting over 1 million Syrian refugees,” states photo-journalist Giles Duley whose photography is highlighted in the official music video, edited by Rick Holbrook. “The infrastructure of the country is pushed to its limit, and nowhere is that situation more desperate than in the Bekaa Valley. However, there are some amazing organizations doing incredible, effective, and selfless work on the ground there, and all of the NGOs I have documented, none have impressed me more than Beyond. To visit their schools and witness their programs is to see hope – and that is something we have to support.”

“The Camp” will be digitally on Friday 9 June 2017. Check out the video above.
