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.

The official David Lynch-ian video for PusciferTelling Ghosts” is now posted on their official YouTube account…

It was shot by Tim Cadiente (Barton Perreira) and Meats Meier (3D Art Space) and edited by Mat Mitchell (Puscifer).  The video brings me right back to seeing them in Seattle in November 2011 (review with photos here).

Shara Worden aka My Brightest Diamond has a new album out today… Oct 18th.  All Things Will Unwind is only her third studio album under the MBD moniker, but she’s put out a ton of other material (pre-MBD bands, side projects).  Here’s a full (but not necessarily complete) chronological video walk through her career.  And a quick & easy link on how to get her FANTASTIC new album at the bottom…

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.

Tori Amos “Carry” video + pre-order + tour updates

18th Aug 11 (Thu) Leave a comment

The first track to get video treatment for Tori Amos’ upcoming Night of Hunters album is the final track, “Carry.”  Sonically, it’s a lush stringy ballad – quite fitting for Tori’s move to classical label Deutsche Grammophon.

I’m curious how the rest of the album is, but I guess I’ll have to wait until it hits on September 20th.  The CD, CD/DVD deluxe and vinyl versions are currently up for pre-order on the Amazons (digital/mp3 download version to follow).  Tori’s Fall tour dates are below as well.  I’m still bummed about no Oregon date, but hope there’s a 2nd leg added at some point…

Night of Hunters tracklist:
01. Shattering Sea
02. SnowBlind
03. Battle of Trees
04. Fearlessness
05. Cactus Practice
06. Star Whisperer
07. Job’s Coffin
08. Nautical Twilight
09. Your Ghost
10. Edge of the Moon
11. The Chase
12. Night of Hunters
13. Seven Sisters
14. Carry

Radiohead – Staircase (Live from the Basement)

21st Jun 11 (Tue) Leave a comment

Radiohead just debuted a new song… “Staircase” on Live from the Basement on YouTube…

Here’s a new track called Staircase, taken from our upcoming ‘From The Basement’ session.

And no, you’re not seeing double. The doppelganger drummers are myself and Clive Deamer. Clive has long been one of my favourite drummers and so I was really excited when he agreed to perform with us. Hope you like what we’ve all done.

Elysian Fields “Red Riding Hood” (video)

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.
