[PREMIERE] Pouty "Sad" Music Video

[PREMIERE] Pouty “Sad” Music Video

  We all have different ways of dealing with seasonal depression. For example, the way I get through the punishing and disheartening six month long summer of Southern California involves staying inside almost always and spending an inordinate amount of time at indoor malls in a sweater forlornly nursing some sort of frozen dessert. Other...
[BEST VIDEO EVER] Premiere - Publicist UK "Canary" Video + Interview

[BEST VIDEO EVER] Premiere – Publicist UK “Canary” Video + Interview

    Made up of members of many metal and post-punk bands (Municipal Waste, Melt Banana, Revocation, and Goes Cube, amongst others) Publicist UK has been referred to as a super group no less than three times (as per my online searching) and though that does hold some water (they’re no Traveling Wilburies or Velvet Revolver,...
[BEST VIDEO EVER] Stickers "Sacajawea" *PREMIERE*

[BEST VIDEO EVER] Stickers “Sacajawea” *PREMIERE*

I like music with a sense of urgency. That is to say, I prefer songs that feel like they are constantly pushing themselves to the point of rupturing, but always holding just shy of actual explosion (in turn, these songs have the same effect on your heart, creating a three minute sensation of near rupture,...
[BEST VIDEO EVER] Pink Mountaintops ft. J. Mascis "Shakedown"

[BEST VIDEO EVER] Pink Mountaintops ft. J. Mascis “Shakedown”

  This video new video from Pink Mountaintops has everything a good video should have: a beautiful girl (played by the lovely and talented photographer Mandy-Lyn), cool special effects, a train, Pac-Man, and double-vision J. Mascis. In short, it is awesome but you will know that as soon as you use your eyeballs to watch...
[BEST VIDEO EVER] The Mystery Lights "Flowers In My Hair, Demons In My Head"

[BEST VIDEO EVER] The Mystery Lights “Flowers In My Hair, Demons In My Head”

  I watched this Mystery Lights video a few times this past weekend and really enjoyed it (whilst concurrently storing some of the images for future nightmares) but last night I went to see Counting Crows (yes really) and it was glorious (yes really) and psychedelics (maybe) so now I’m not really in the correct...
[BEST VIDEO EVER] White Lung "In Your Home" Plus Interview With Director Justin Gradin

[BEST VIDEO EVER] White Lung “In Your Home” Plus Interview With Director Justin Gradin

Is there anything better in this world than a two-person horse costume? I know you didn’t even open your mouth to answer because you know that this is in fact a completely rhetorical question, as there is absolutely not anything better. No, not even nachos. Not even nachos with real cheese AND nacho cheese. Not...
[BEST VIDEO EVER] Pink Mountaintops "The Second Summer Of Love"

[BEST VIDEO EVER] Pink Mountaintops “The Second Summer Of Love”

The new Pink Mountaintops video for “The Second Summer Of Love” is full of cool things like fire and skateboarding and destruction of property, interspliced with grainy shots of a shirtless Steve McBean showing us cue cards of various song lyrics, which I can only hope is some sort of artistic homage to a similar...
[BEST VIDEO EVER] Premiere - Ice Cream "Plastic"

[BEST VIDEO EVER] Premiere – Ice Cream “Plastic”

You know how when you watch an old movie, like say something with Lauren Bacall in it, and afterwards you find yourself speaking a bit more deeply and saying things like “What’s the big idea here?” and gravitating towards high-waist trousers and impractical hats (okay so maybe I watched The Big Sleep the other night...
[BEST VIDEO EVER] Cam'Ron & A-Trak ft. Juelz Santana - "Dipshits"

[BEST VIDEO EVER] Cam’Ron & A-Trak ft. Juelz Santana – “Dipshits”

One fateful Spring day when I was a bright-eyed 21 year old hip-hop fan/burgeoning music journalist (by way of former Sacramento graffiti culture magazine Vapors may it rest in peace), I went to the W Hotel in New York City to interview Jim Jones. This was just after the release of Diplomatic Immunity II, at...
[BEST VIDEO EVER] Sia "Chandelier"

[BEST VIDEO EVER] Sia “Chandelier”

For the last 8 years, I’ve been walking into bars, verifying my of-ageness with a tattered passport (it’s not that I’m that well-traveled, but more like the bottom of my purse looks like the aftermath of an earthquake’s epicenter) boasting a photo of a sportier me wearing an American Idol tee that I purchased for...
[BEST VIDEO EVER] Habibi "I Got The Moves"

[BEST VIDEO EVER] Habibi “I Got The Moves”

When I used to ditch school I had frizz balls, one eyebrow, and I dressed like a male extra from Dazed and Confused. I would usually end up drinking beers in the alley behind the middle school with my borderline crust punk pals, which is all to say that it was nowhere near as cute...
[BEST VIDEO EVER] Warpaint "Disco//Very" and "Keep It Healthy"

[BEST VIDEO EVER] Warpaint “Disco//Very” and “Keep It Healthy”

Skaters gonna hate. Fortunately, the only decks I deal in are Celine-inspired and hanging on my apartment walls. Personally, I’m on team Warpaint, with this glorified hang sesh doubling as a music video – all hairflips and kickflips and ripped jeans under plaid skirts like a punkier Liv Tyler in Empire Records. Our favorite indie girl...
