Toronto-based videographer Claire Edmonson brings us another master piece, this time for electro-cruise band Austra (Domino Records). The song “Forgive Me” dropped November 25, in light of the bands latest record and the video is cuts deep and creepy, offering an exploration of gender. Check out the video after the jump.
Devonté Hynes is Blood Orange. The New York-based artist just released his sophomore album Cupid Deluxe to rave reviews from Pitchfork, Rolling Stone and, well, everyone. Cupid Deluxe is more than just a throwback record, it’s a collaborative stock pile of talent Hynes curated with vision.
Emily Jane White started out as a punk. Did you know that? That’s what the internet says. Then, she went to France to pump her brain full of knowledge, until settling in San Fransisco to make music. Lately, she has completed another solo effort Blood Lines (Important Records), which drops on November 19. Today, we bring you the latest single “Keeley”. White’s voice calls to the vulnerable, bareness of greats like Sinead or Kate Bush, while still remaining current and unique. It’s rhythmic, haunting and passionate. “Keeley” chills our bones. Get ready to feel something.
On the track “Golden Wake” off Love’s Crushing Diamond 12” EP, Mutual Benefit swoons with oddly broken hearted skid punk lyrics over a pretty, violin-heavy ballad. It’s explorative and odd and kind of awkward, like a teenage first date, but ultimately glamorous and I am into it. Listen to the track below and check out more Mutual Benefits on their Bandcamp page.
Audacity‘s latest track “Hole In The Sky” brings everything good about the summer run around and perpetual adolescence into a breezy, feel-good two minutes of happiness. You’ll play it every morning while you brush your teeth! Take a listen after the jump!
Hunters are one of the few bands who actually relocated from New York to Philadelphia. Who does that? Punks who want to save money and know the woes of touring, that’s who. Settling in their new home and coming off a big trip round the country, Hunters recently released the video for the single “Narcissist” off their LP “Hunters” out on Mom & Pop Records. The video features Izzy and Derek (front couple of the band) making out in the car as psychotic cheerleaders and other characters try to get at them. Directed by Scott Cudmore and Michael Leblancn with it’s natural setting, slow motion and cool, blank tones, “Narcissist” is an unintentional shout out to Izzy’s signature cotton candy hair.
