When a musician puts together a moving tribute to her deceased bandmate, giving fitting visual accompaniment to the last thing that bandmate ever recorded, that video really should be #1 on this list. Most weeks, it would be. But this week, that video went up against the form’s reigning innovator, who’s put together a stunning… More »

I can’t imagine any of the artists on this week’s list had huge budgets to play around. Even Santigold, the one who could’ve presumably commanded a small pile of money to make a video, ended up doing something quick and homemade instead. So consider these to be five ways to stretch dollars while actually making… More »

Considering that New York City — the place where most of the indie label/publicist/writer infrastructure calls home — spent the entire week in a state of Deep Impact disaster, it’s remarkable how little Hurricane Sandy affected the endless march of bloggable music items. Maybe we didn’t see quite as many new music videos this week… More »

Operators – “True” Video

Synth-pop trio Operators have been hinting at a full length project for quite some time now.

Viet Cong – “Silhouettes” Video

Our current reigning Album Of The Week is the self-titled debut from the Calgary postpunkers Viet Cong.

A Place To Bury Strangers will release their fourth album, Transfixiation, next year, and we heard a short teaser for the record back in November.

Pink Mountaintops – “Second Summer Of Love” Video

Pink Mountaintops have shared a video for the Get Back track “Second Summer Of Love,” and in it, somebody rides a flaming skateboard. Directed by Brook Linder, the clip follows a bunch of punks as they cause mischief, and there’s sort of a plot that you can follow, but who cares when you get to… More »

Around the same time we were posting our piece about Free Energy’s Love Sign, our new Album Of The Week, Free Energy were posting their video for the album track “Girls Want Rock,” one of the many ridiculously fun and catchy songs on the album.

Free Energy – “Electric Fever” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Free Energy’s video for their ferociously catchy cowbell-smacking summer jam “Electric Fever” has a simple, fun concept: The band members, goggled and enclosed in a tarp-covered room, attempt to play the song while someone offscreen blasts them with water, powder, paint, glitter, and sand. It’s all very Jackass, which works just fine for me. BrookMore »
