Camera Obscura – “Troublemaker” Video

“Troublemaker,” a song from the Scottish indie-poppers Camera Obscura, is a pleasantly jangling ditty that seems to call out for one of those videos that’s all amber-hued shots of young people staring flirtily at each other. Instead, director Blair Young has made a spot-on tribute to the low-budget, mostly-incomprehensible British sci-fi TV shows of the… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

It’s pretty hard to carry on Stereogum business as usual on the day that Amrit Singh, the guy who brought me to the site and one of my favorite people, announces his departure. Like, I’m sure, a lot of readers, I’ve got complicated feelings here: Happy for Amrit, sorry to see him go, looking forward… More »

Camera Obscura – “Break It To You Gently” Video

Scottish indie-pop band Camera Obscura dropped a new album, Desire Lines, in June, and have now released a video for that album’s single “Break It To You Gently,” in which a runaway shopping trolley takes a rolling tour of (what I assume is) Glasgow. At one point, the carriage has a run-in with a dog… More »

The Belle & Sebastian-curated ATP Bowlie 2 took place earlier this week (December 10-12) at Butlins Holiday Centre, Minehead. (In 1999 B&S curated The Bowlie Weekender, which ultimately became All Tomorrow’s Parties, hence the “2”.)

ATP 2010: Curated By Pavement @ Butlin’s Holiday Centre, Minehead, UK

Pavement’s on their way to a long summer of festivals and one-off gigs, but curating an ATP is a sweet way to get things started. (It’s also a sweet way to get in some time with their side projects — both Spiral Stairs and Steve West’s marble valley played sets.) Avi Buffalo started the weekend,… More »

Coachella 2010: Die Antwoord, Major Lazer, Flying Lotus

On Friday, James Murphy dedicated “Losing My Edge” to Gil Scott-Heron. For the rest of the weekend, everyone should be covering “Communication Breakdown” and dedicating it to AT&T.

Green Man Festival 2009 In Photos

The eco-friendly Green Man took over Brecon Beacons, Wales this past weekend with a heavy dose of Americana: from midwestern folkies (Bon Iver, Wilco, Andrew Bird) to wailing east coast electropoppers (Animal Collective, Gang Gang Dance) and reinvigorated psych legends (Roky Erikson, Rodriguez) the lineup wasn’t significantly different than, say, Lollapalooza. But Green Man stand… More »
