O.S.I. “For Nothing” video premiere

9th Apr 12 (Mon) Leave a comment

One of mellow tracks from O.S.I.’s latest album, Fire Make Thunder, now has a video…

For Nothing

Directed by Jimmy Ahlander

Threatening smoke, odd beings and glorified body parts, create dark poetry in this twisted, visual representation of OSI’s melancholic tune.

Sigur Rós new album ‘Valtari’ (late May 2012)

26th Mar 12 (Mon) 1 comment

Updated with official notice, sample tune (Ekki Múkk) that you can buy/download & video trailer from Sigur Rós (below).

Update 4/4/12 with cover art done by Jónsi’s sisters, Lilja and Inga Birgisdóttir (incidentally, Inga was the baby on the band’s first album cover, Von.)

As reported by Q, 24bit and Paste, Sigur Rós’ new album is called Valtari and due out on May 28th (Europe) or May 29th, 2012 (US).  At first, this looked like an elaborate pre-April Fool’s Day joke to me, simply based on this call out quote.  I bounced an email off of Peter at 24Bit, and he seemed to have vetted it a bit.

Simply based on the fact that I know Sigur Rós was in the studio working on new material, I’ll give my skepticism kudos but I’ll also give this news the benefit of the doubt.  Here’s what was reported on 24bit

Following up a stunning solo LP and film score, Jónsi is back with the great Icelandic quartet Sigur Rós for a full-length successor to 2008′s Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust. Due out on May 28th and titled Valtari, the 7-track effort features “more electronic stuff than before,” bassist Georg Hólm told Q Magazine (via). “But don’t worry,” he added, “we haven’t made a dance record.”

Aside from track titles, the release date, and a few non-specific adjectives (“beautiful,” “dreamy,” “introverted,” etc.), Hólm and Jónsi offered their own differing images of what to expect:

Hólm: “…this I’d compare to looking at an old landscape painting.”

 Birgisson: “…like an avalanche in slow motion.”

It sounds like — as with most of the Sigur Rós oeuvre — we’ll have another cinematic set left gloriously open to interpretation. While we wait, the pair shared these track titles for cuts recently mixed with co-producer Alex Somers below:

Valtari Tracklist

  • Ég Anda
  • Ekki Múkk
  • Varúð
  • Rembihnútur
  • Dauðalogn
  • Varðeldur
  • Valtari
  • Flogur Piaro (?)

No official word on the Sigur Rós news page, but I imagine it’ll be forthcoming soon if true.

Nevermind… it’s legit!

Pre-order featuring exclusive merchandise coming soon!

My Brightest Diamond – La Blogothèque (videos)

11th Oct 11 (Tue) Leave a comment

My Brightest Diamond’s new album, All Things Will Unwind, came out yesterday in the EU (10/10) and it hits the U.S. next week (10/18).  You can stream the entire album here on NPR First Listen.  You can pre-order it from Amazon on CD, vinyl, and mp3 download.

She recently allowed the French video bloggers, La Blogothèque, a peak into her life… similar to back in 2007:

It’s a gorgeous album.  If I could only rave about two vocal albums in 2011, it’d be this one and Wussy’s Strawberry.  Go get ’em both.

My Brightest Diamond is also doing a little tour (of which I’m happy to be going to Portland)…

MBD’s release party is this Friday night at Littlefields (NYC), though tickets are going fast! Doors open at 8pm, and DM Stith opens shortly thereafter. 21+, tickets just $15; buy them here.

Sigur Rós – Klippa [video]

New video from Icelandic post-rocker Sigur Rós for the song “Klippa“…

Gorgeous yet odd, and based on the link on the vimeo site, somehow related to their upcoming Inni DVD release.

I suppose so no one can easily steal the jpeg image?  Anyway, here’s the “cover art video trailer reveal” for Steven Wilson’s upcoming Grace for Drowning album, due out in September.

For more about the album, I did a “here’s all the info we know thus far” recap a few weeks ago.

Did you miss the Les Paul 96th birthday celebration Google doodle from June 9th?  Well, check it out, play something, record it…

…and then compare what you did with the three that guitar phenom Kaki King did for Brazil’s MTV Hive:

Further proof that this is one of the best Google doodles conceived thus far.

13th Jun 11 (Mon) Leave a comment

NYC artrock duo Elysian Fields have a new album out called Last Night on Earth (tomorrow on Ojet Records).  The debut video for “Red Riding Hood” is out now… sultry and sexy, as Jennifer Charles’ voice is prone to project…

You can get the CD for only $12 (*shipping included) at Ojet’s webpage.  I’m sure the download version will show up on Amazon and iTunes soon… currently only an expensive import is available on Amazon.

dredg “Upon Returning” video

12th Jun 11 (Sun) 2 comments

The official video for “Upon Returning” from dredg:

Directed & edited by merkley???
Produced by merkley??? & Tyler Gourley
Water FX: James Dirschberger & Ken Fisk
End FX: merkley???

Elder Derelict: Ron Turner
Teen Derelict: Lars Gourley
Younger Derelict: Liam Bridges
Youngest Derelict: Jett Bridges
Life Guard: Dexter Simmons
Koolaid Fairy: Athena Rose Djurkovic

Koolaid Fairy Assistant: Mila Lilith Djurkovic

Cute, colorful and clever – nice work from merkley???.  They had me until… the second part of the “watersports.”  The watersports set aside, the video and album are both quite great.  It’s still building on me, but I dig it.  Chuckles and Mr Squeezy, silly name, solid tunes.  My favorite track is probably “The Tent,” highlighted in this trailer by Jorge Feres

Steven Wilson – Grace for Drowning (2011)

9th Jun 11 (Thu) 1 comment

Update 8/24: there’s a new video for the song “Track One” with the image below, as well as pre-order information at THIS BLOG.

After some news leaking slowly, Porcupine Tree/No-Man/Blackfield frontman Steven Wilson’s next solo album finally has a name… Grace For Drowning.  It also has a trailer…


http://www.gracefordrowning.com/

Recapping the news from prior posts:

  • it’ll be two 40-45 minute albums in the same package… due “Autumn 2011” (September-ish)
  • album names: Deform to Form a Star and Like Dust I Have Cleared From My Eye
  • pretty organic feel, mostly inspired by the darker end of vintage progressive music and some… movie soundtrack stuff (Morricone especially)
  • the usual array of excellent SW options: double-vinyl release, 5.1 surround sound, hard back book edition, CD, digital…
  • Update 7/19: free download… 9-minute full-track by signing up for the mailing list at http://www.gracefordrowning.com/

Stay up with his Facebook page and http://www.gracefordrowning.com/ for the scoop as it develops.  Steven just finished up his tour with Blackfield, and also in the works… Storm Corrosion with Opeth’s Mikael Akerfeldt (likely a 2012 release).

El Guincho’s “Bombay” video (NSFW)

13th Oct 10 (Wed) 1 comment

This came out about 3 weeks ago, but I recently got to see it.  El Guincho‘s “Bombay” is entrancing, odd and heavily features nudity (thus the NSFW warning).


Directed by Nicolás Méndez.
Produced by CANADA (lawebdecanada.com)

Check out their album, Pop Negro:

Attack Attack!’s Stick Stickly

20th Jun 09 (Sat) 3 comments

This is the best worst thing I’ve seen in a while.  I kinda love it…

(Note: if the Vimeo video above doesn’t work,
let me know and I’ll refresh the link)

So amazingly, A+ horrible that it’s A+ good… poop squat guitarist moves, jumping around flipping guitar over head, death metal vocals, dance breaks, auto-tune vocals (a la Akon, Justin Timberlake, etc)… I mean… what’s not to love/hate/love again? No matter how seemingly painful, you can’t turn away.

And if you just wanna watch the silly pieces forever, here are some animated gifs of the Attack Attack! “Stick Stickly” action (click for larger, or right click to save):
