“Dead Film Star” is the first single from Team Ghost’s upcoming album “Rituals” which will be released in February 2013. The band is the brainchild of the ex M83 Nicolas Fromageau and Christophe Guerin, both on guitar, synths and vocals. It’s a beautiful dark and moody pop anthem right in the middle between The Cure and
Foo Fighters, if you know what I mean. Dark Wave with a twist. Be sure to watch the video till the end and let us know, what you guys think, how the story continues. [Source]
Timothy Saccenti directed music video for Depeche Mode “Angel”.
Can you tell us a little bit about how the concept for the “Angel” video come about?
It’s rare that I do an in-studio type piece, most of my work is quite art directed and conceptual, so I was drawn to the idea of trying to translate that into this studio situation. I went into meet the band and was inspired by their energy in the room, they are amazing musicians and you feel it the moment you walk in studio. I actually felt this side of them hadn’t been shown very well, so that was my main concept, show this energy… not knowing where it would take me. After filming it, the amazing editor Dayn Williams and I dedicated a large chunk of our lives carving out the film. I think we accomplished our goal on that one. [Source]
If you were to base your guess on what the music of Matthew E. White would sound like by solely looking at him, you’d likely peg him for being the front-man for a crunchy Southern-rock jamband. To the contrary, the bearded, long-haired singer-songwriter, who released his highly recommended debut album Big Inner back in August, has crafted a sound that’s drenched in the slow-burn, baby-making sounds of Stax funk and soul, mixed with elements of gospel, folk and rock. Here is the music video for the panty-dropping track Will You Love Me. Ladies be warned. [Source]
Flume is a local Sydney beat maker who’s only 19 (!) years of age. Flume got his first taste for producing at age 13 (!!) from the most unlikely of places – a music production program he found in a cereal box. It began Flume’s obsession with all things synthetic, and started his addiction for plug-ins, sample packs & vintage analogue hardware. Sleepless is Flume’s debut EP and has enough lush pads, chopped and chipmunked vocals, saw synths and awesome percussion to impress any fan of Hudson Mohawke, Flying Lotus, Seekae or Space Dimension Controller.

The Bruise Cruise is an annual event for punk rock and hardcore fans to board a cruise ship, drink like fishes, and enjoy the sounds of their favorite acts for a few days of seafaring anarchy. In addition to memories and possibly some scrapes and bruises, attendees will leave with a limited-edition 7″ featuring artists from the 2012 lineup. King Khan and the Shrines‘ previously unreleased “Bite My Tongue” is among the tracks up for grabs, packaged as part of a split 7” with Mikal Cronin. With jangly guitars and an overpowering chorus, the track is in line with the bright, sunny numbers of decidedly more poppy ’60s garage acts and is the perfect soundtrack to a game of shuffleboard on the poop deck.

Slacker savant Chris McVicker, a.k.a. Swiftumz, made a video for the impossibly catchy-yet-sulky track “More Than Sleep,” off of the excellent 2011 Holy Mountain release Don’t Trip. The video seems to chronicle a day in the life of a lovelorn record junkie — wake up, pine, play everything from Christian Death to Masta Ace, pine some more, lights off, go to bed. [Source]
This is the first video from our new album: “WE’RE HERE WITH YOU” released January 23, 2012 – available on Amazon and iTunes. The video was directed and edited by our good friend and unbelievably talented director Katya Tsyganova.
In the Raveonettes’ video for the fuzzily romantic Observator cut “Curse The Night,” two little kids dress up as drummer boys and lead a youngster mob through inky black-and-white streets. Things then take a surprisingly villainous turn that I don’t want to spoil. Watch the video and check out a (long) statement from the Danish directing duo Storm/Hansen. [Source]
