Everyone is in SXSW hangover recovery mode today, so we pulled together some mellow music videos (mostly) to help the cause. We hope you enjoy this week’s edition, and make sure to share and / or leave a comment if you enjoy.
The Horrors: Changing The Rain - their latest video.
Chromatics: Back From The Grave - shoegazey goodness.
After more than a week of sickness and being pumped up on meds, I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel in terms of kicking this bug. These are the videos I was enjoying while under the influence of Benadryl. Hope you enjoy.
Black Marble: Backwards - gloomy track and video…loving it.
The Twilight Sad: Another Bed - such a catchy chorus.
Tennis: Origins - something grabs me about this track, but not sure what.
Unknown Mortal Orchestra: Strangers Are Strange - new UMO.
Kate Wax: Dust Collision - cool, eerie track and stylish video.
Hodgy, Domo Genesis and Tyler, The Creator: Rella - dirty vid of the day.
Thanks for watching. We post the music video picks every Sunday so pop back in again next week and look back in the archives for older editions.
Mystery Jets have revealed the details of their fourth album, ‘Radlands’ which will be out on April 30, 2012 through Rough Trade Records.
Blaine Harrison from the band explains a bit about recording in America, and why they chose the album title.
“We’ve always wanted to make a record in America and after touring Serotonin the time felt perfect to go and do it. Our first three albums were entirely conceived and recorded in London so going out to Austin felt like the furthest place from everything we knew. We arrived with a handful of songs, but one in particular felt like it captured the spirit of why we had come there. It was called Radlands (a fusion of the 1970s Terrence Malick film ‘Badlands’ and Redlands, Keith Richard’s Sussex estate), which is also what we named our studio; a big old wooden house on the banks of the Colorado river. All we brought on the plane were the guitars on our backs, so we ended up borrowing all this amazing valve gear from an old guy called jack who ran a little studio up in the hills-which is why the songs sound the way they do. In the daytime we wrote lyrics on the porch and in the evenings a family of Deer would gather in the back yard to hear us play. Some nights we drove into town to drink and bring people back to play on the songs.”
