There are nine days left in the Cave Singers’ IndieGoGo campaign to crowd-fund their fifth album — and you should support them.

The 9 Best Videos Of The Week

This week we’ve got new videos from Buraka Som Sistema, Herman Düne, Lady Gaga, The Cave Singers, and Rusko. I put the Buraka Som Sistema and Rusko videos next to each other because I think they’re shot and edited differently, but they’re great examples of entering and filming an impoverished culture without exploiting them.

New Cave Singers – “Beach House”

Seattle’s Cave Singers work a vintage, folky, vocal-rich aesthetic, but the trio evokes a very different vibe than hometown favorites Fleet Foxes. Raspy Pete Quirk, who used to play in Hint Hint, possesses a classic sounding, affecting voice — thinking some kind combo of Harry Nilsson, Arlo Guthrie, the Gordons Gano and Lightfoot, and other… More »
