Mabroder

  Scion A/V Presents: Mobroder – Rush (Nile Delta Remix) from Scion A/V on Vimeo. It’s hard to do 80’s nostalgia without it coming off as either completely campy or shamelessly nostalgic.  Mabroder (aka Spank Rock’s Naeem Juwon) navigates this fine line to elegant effect with the Italo disco video for “Rush (Nile Delta Remix)”. It […]

The Joy Formidable

Meet The Joy Formidable, expect this band to be big. Live they’re as tight as any indie band around, on record they have the raw edge of a band like Silversun Pickups but with an even bigger sound. Karen O meets the Arcade Fire springs to mind. The Welsh three peice has already garnered tons […]

Diplo

This is a fantastic clip fo Diplo, in his own words, talking about his roots in Florida, his rise to fame and what critics have to say about Major Lazer.

Express Yourself

Ga Ga continues in the vein of cribbing her visuals from Matthew Barney’s surrealistic Cremaster cycle with her new vid for ‘Born This Way’. Opening with an extended monologue set in space and wrapped up in sledge-hammer subtle birth motifs, it then digresses into the usual dance fare set to what is almost undeniably Madonna’s […]

Brick by Brick

There is virtually no information on this new vid/track from the Arctic Monekys. Is it a leftover from the ‘Humbug’ sessions? Is it a new song from a new LP? Will Josh Homme return with James Ford as producers? One shot from the vid would seem to support that Ford is back as producer and […]

The video features the band all dressed up, except Julian because, you know, he’s too cool to get dressed up and performing in a fancy old concert hall. It’s one of those videos that’s really just for hard core fans […]

Get Your Vaccines

Sometimes life, with all it’s mundane complexitites, needs something simple as an antidote. Take Brit upstarts The Vaccines. Straight ahead guitar rock that calls to mind the swagger of greats like The Clash. Evocative lyrics, slabs of reverb, and a pounding drum line. All under two minutes. Founded in London in 2010, the band’s debut […]
