[Song of the Day]/[Music Video] Disa - "Sculpture"/"Stones"

[Song of the Day]/[Music Video] Disa – “Sculpture”/”Stones”

I’m not sure what it is that makes Icelandic artists so appealing to me, but it seems like I can’t go even a few months without becoming obsessed with a new one. Rather than question why that is, or why so many seem to come from that area of the world, I’m instead going to...
[Video] Angel Olsen - "Windows"

[Video] Angel Olsen – “Windows”

Angel Olsen “Windows” As if I needed another reason to listen to only this song until July, here are four more: Really dirty bangs A perfect visual encapsulation of what I’ve always imagined it’s like to be a mother VASELINE ON THE FACE Casual appearance by a ruff –Catie
[Song of the Day]/[Music Video] Crater - "Crater Head"

[Song of the Day]/[Music Video] Crater – “Crater Head”

During my unplanned and unpaid Summer/Fall music sabbatical, I missed a lot of new music coming out abroad and in this case, my very own backyard of Seattle. Craters is one of the bands I’m happily catching up on, and what better place to start than their wonderful track “Crater Head” (free to download). The...
[Song of the Day]/[Video] The Dirty Moogs - "I'm Alright"

[Song of the Day]/[Video] The Dirty Moogs – “I’m Alright”

  You want the most sensual kraut-rock space-disco this side of the interstellar-Mississippi? Then vibe with The Dirty Moogs. Constituents of Boise, Idaho (where is that? did he even fact check?), these groovy cats know how to put down rainbow-highway-melodies with the best of them. Daft Punk, eat your gahdamn robo-hearts out.  
[Video] Chet Faker - "Gold"

[Video] Chet Faker – “Gold”

Chet Faker “Gold” This is one of those videos that you show a friend and your relationship grows a little bit stronger. One of those videos that you bond over because you’ve just exposed them to something they appreciate you for exposing them to, and you’ve provided them something that they can share with their friends and ultimately...
[Song of the Day]/[Video] The Growlers - "Good Advice"

[Song of the Day]/[Video] The Growlers – “Good Advice”

I’ve been a huge proponent of the latest Growlers release, Chinese Fountain. The introduction of dynamic space in production, the addition of glam, disco, and some rarified-neon to the song structure, and the growing sense of maturity from Brooks’ songwriting all combine to create a more complete and holistic album than they’ve put out previously....
[Song of the Day]/[Video] A String of Pearls - "On My Lips"

[Song of the Day]/[Video] A String of Pearls – “On My Lips”

“On My Lips” is the first single off A String of Pearls upcoming debut The Way We Are.  Shot by Harrison Frank, “the video is shot and edited to capture elements of ‘other’ including gender expression, scars, race, altered states and the spaces they occupy.” A String of Pearls is the solo project of Sadie...
[Song of the Day]/[Music Video] "Murmurs" - Hundred Waters

[Song of the Day]/[Music Video] “Murmurs” – Hundred Waters

  Impeccable song construction personified (see what I did there?), Hundred Waters‘ newest video casts a dark and hypnotic gaze that you can’t escape. Perfect color grading and piano playing combine to create a video that makes you feel way too many “feelings.” “Murmurs” is autumnal introspection in a pretty little 3 minute and 45...
[Video] Alt-J - "Hunger of the Pines"
