Darwin Deez – “Free (The Editorial Me)” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

In Darwin Deez’s video for his fired-up fuzz-pop anthem “Free (The Editorial Me),” Deez plays a slacker bodega clerk who realizes he’s trapped in some kind of momentary Groundhog Day time-vortex. When he tries to break out of it, things get weird. Ninian Doff directs, and it’s a supremely lo-fi, low-stakes version of Looper. It’… More »

32 Must See Bands @ SXSW 2011

Come March every year, the same questions are asked, retreaded thought pieces get pitched: What does it mean to have a music industry festival in the decrepit climate of 2011? Does anyone actually get discovered at SXSW? What’s the point of signing to a label? What happened to that taco truck on Red River near… More »

The 20 Most Overlooked LPs Of 2010

There were more albums released in 2010 than could fit on all the lists released in 2010. (And there were many lists.) With that in mind, and certain ’10 records still ringing in our ears, we put our heads together and thought about some of last year’s favorites that, for some reason or other, didn’t… More »

Darwin Deez -“Bad Day (Javelin Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

Darwin Deez’s “Bad Day” is a “fuck you” song of the mildest kind. It’s directed at someone he hates, but he’s too nice to wish more than lost keys and rainy days on his adversary over the song’s bright guitar and jangling rhythm. Brooklyn duo Javelin did this remix for the single (Deez’ LP came… More »

Darwin Deez – “Constellations” Video

We posted the “Radar Detector” video (one of my favorite videos of the year) back in March. Since then New Yorker Darwin Deez has gotten a lot of attention in the UK, playing T In the Park, Bestival, and as part of a recent NME tour — he was number seven on their best newMore »

Darwin Deez – “Up In The Clouds” Video

I found out about Darwin Deez through Ace Norton’s non sequitur clip for Deez’s single “Radar Detector.” His latest, “Up In The Clouds” works almost like a sequel to “Radar Detector.” Deez is past the giddy new relationship excitement phase here, and is attempting to repair a relationship in the brink. The accompanying video i… More »

Darwin Deez – “Radar Detector” Video

From ace director Ace Norton comes this new video for New York’s Darwin Deez. Darwin Deez refers to the band, and to their insane-looking singer/songwriter, who also plays guitar for Creaky Boards (the band that may/probably weren’t ripped off by Coldplay). Despite appearances — and trust, it takes about 10 minutes to fully absorb appearance… More »
