Ever wanted to see Action Bronson do a cartwheel?! Well here’s your chance! He’s just dropped the entertaining clip for the first track from his collaborative album with producer Harry Fraud, Saab Stories. “Strictly 4 My Jeeps” features a host of Bronson related activities including a cake that looks just like the man himself. I’m lost for words.
It’s always nice to have some new music from Abel Tesfaye, better known as The Weeknd, and today we get some and boy oh by is it nice! He’s released the title track to his new album, Kiss Land, and it’s 7 minutes and 41 seconds of his fantasies and dreams. It’s a psychedelic, sexy, and it’s also a step forward for his style which is sounding ever more refined and beautiful to the ear.
Little is known about his new album but hey. He could surprise drop it at any time going from his track record.
Deftones’ latest record Koi No Yokan grabbed you by the neck right from the very start with it’s huge sound. The album opening track that did just that, “Swerve City”, has now been given the official video treatment with a western style clip. The beautifully shot clip even features a cameo from the band’s own Chino Moreno right at the end so stay tuned.
With Summer slowly beginning to poke its head through the clouds on the odd occasion, it’s about time we had some music that brought the warmth along too ‘cause who knows if we’re actually going to have a proper bit of sun. At least the Brits anyway. Welcome SPLASHH to the equation, with their Southern hemisphere roots, the laid back guitar and vocals of this track “All I Wanna Do” is the perfect intro to the coming months and good times with friends. They’ve been slaving away self-producing their debut album which is due out on June 3rd
Don’t let the parental advisory warning fool you, Disclosure’s new video for their single “You & Me” isn’t as NSFW as you might think (save for a playful dildo fight). It follows the adventures of a young couple as they travel across Europe, partying and seeing the sights in all kinds of locales.
Muse are probably one of the biggest bands in the world right now. Their latest release, The 2nd Law, may have divided opinion, but they sure as hell look like they’re having fun with it. The video they released late yesterday to accompany the out there track “Panic Station” is a great example of a band not taking themselves too seriously. I mean, look at it. Strutting around in absolutely ridiculous outfits it’s sure to say these rock titans still find it amusing to poke fun at themselves and I say, good on ‘em. The band have been known to play pranks and mess around since the early oughties. They have, on numerous occasions, played badly set up kits, done forward rolls, and even changed instruments when asked to mime on TV shows, and even gone as far as to be interviewed as one another afterwards.
Bands take note: it’s all just a bit of fun, so don’t take yourselves seriously 24/7. The dinosaur, giant lady, slap bass, feather jacket filled video can be seen above.
Thundercat, the alias of talented bassist Stephen Bruner, has announced a new album titledApocalypse. The LP is the follow-up to 2010’s excellent The Golden Age of Apocalypse, and is being executive produced by Flying Lotus. The two buddies even co-wrote Thundercat’s new cut “Heartbreaks + Setbacks,”
Frank Ocean is certainly not lost in is his new video for the Channel Orange track “Lost.” Shown in split screens, we’re taken across the globe as Frank hops from country to country performing for eager fans, seeing the sights and recording in the studio. Check it out above. Francisco Soriano directs.
Jessie Ware’s acid house anthem “Imagine It Was Us” finds the perfect visual accompaniment, taking us to the sweaty depths of a dance club. As the beat starts thumping, the video fills with flashy characters and a steamy, choreographed dance number. Watch Jessie Ware take center stage underneath the disco ball above.
James Blake is preparing to release his stunning second albumOvergrown next week on the 8th of April via Atlas and to get us all a little more hyped, he’s released the video accompaniment for “Voyeur”. The video is actually an animated clip created by Ferry Gouw and you can watch it above along with taking in all the cowbell goodness of the track. They do always say: “more cowbell”, but how much is too much? Judge for yourselves as the tension builds throughout the track in a way James seems to have mastered so, so well.
Be sure to pick up a copy of the album when it drops next week. It’s a good’un and it’s also a growth from the young artist.
Passion Pit continue their support of last year’s Gossamer, dancing through a girl’s relationships in the video for “Cry Like a Ghost”. That’s exactly how directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert described the clip: “The idea is this girl is dancing through her relationships… we’re trying to show how messy, confusing, funny, and sad and weird that is.” The two employ some pretty cool techniques that make for well-made visual tale.
