While on the subject of tapes, I was reminded that one particular tape/mixtape got released this week, The Weeknd‘s Thursday, the follow-up to the awesome House Of Balloons released in March. Thursday features the amazingly awesome ‘Rolling Stone’ which I posted a while back, and also a track featuring Ghostface Killah‘s softest n****h for three [...]
A beautifully treated video for one of my favourite tracks and albums of this year. The video was shot on location in Iceland. Directed by Nabil Elderkin. ‘Holocene’ comes off Bon Iver‘s latest self-titled album.
Directed by Lorenzo Fonda. ‘The Look’ is off Metronomy‘s latest release, The English Riviera. I might add the Fred Falke remix off the single release is quite sweet. Then again it’s Fred Falke so that’s usually a given…
Directed by Focus Creeps. ‘King Of The Beach’ is off the album of the same name by Wavves.
Both heartbreaking and beautifully haunting at the same time… Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. ‘Rolling Stone’ is expected to be released in The Weeknd‘s upcoming Thursday mixtape. No date yet, but we’re told it’s close… [Audio clip: view full post to listen] The Weeknd – Rolling Stone (320)
Pacey percussion/drums, slinky bass line, harmonious vocals and echoing slide guitars… The track itself? Hauntingly beautiful. And the music video? It’s strangely almost like an analogy of my life at the moment… ‘Wide Eyes’ is the opening track off Local Natives‘ current album Gorilla Manor. Video is directed by Cat Solen and produced by Dan [...]
This music video from Lykke Li is a few month’s old now but her second long-player, Wounded Rhymes, just got released late last week worldwide so it’s still kind of relevant. Actually, posting the video to ‘I Follow Rivers’ would’ve been more appropriate but I’m saving that for a future post… Anyway this video is [...]
One of my favourite songs of last year finally has a music video! This track is also off Foster The People‘s debut EP of the same name.
Finally got me some annual leave, happy days. Gonna be up in Sydney during the NYE/NYD period so I promise to get some cheesy snaps and the like… In case you’re wondering, the song above is ‘Mexico’ by The Holidays circa 2008 (and hence the difference in sound…). Video is directed by D’Arcy Foley-Dawson and produced by Adam Krongold.
The life of a robot can be tough one sometimes. Probably my favourite track off the latest album, ‘This Is Happening’. Video is directed by Rick Darge and produced by Mark Armes. I think they may be some NSFW content here, so you’ve been warned…
