EZTV – “Dust In The Sky” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

There are traces of so many wonderful bands in EZTV’s DNA: Real Estate’s languid bliss-out guitar music, Girls’ back-to-basics pop songcraft, the Nerves’ punchy New Wave, the Byrds’ twangy jangle. All those factors and more are audible in “Dust In The Sky,” one of many highlights on the Brooklyn combo’s debut album Calling Out. Director… More »

Beach Fossils – “Shallow” Video

The video for Beach Fossils’ lazy-but-propulsive new single “Shallow” is one of these tour-life deals, collecting on- and off-stage footage from the past few years of the band’s life.
