Video of the Moment #1900: Meltybrains?

 
By on Saturday, 5th September 2015 at 10:00 am
 

In case you’ve been living under a rock, before the bank holiday weekend, we gave away the free track ‘The Vine’ Dublin’s Meltybrains?, which the band wrote lovingly for a former teacher of theirs. Now, in case you wanted to know how to dance like a pineapple to the song, you can learn how to do so in this instructive video by the band. (And yes, I wanted something funny for this Saturday morning…) Watch it below.

We caught the band at SXSW 2015, first at the Music from Ireland showcase Wednesday night, then on Friday at the full Irish breakfast, where Carrie interviewed the guys. All of TGTF’s coverage of Meltybrains? is this way.

Video of the Moment #1899: Fictonian

 
By on Friday, 4th September 2015 at 6:00 pm
 

Fictonian is the stage name of Glen Roberts, a mysterious multi-instrumentalist who recently (at least for a brief time anyway) became less mysterious when he went out on the road to support TGTF folk favourite Nick Mulvey. He will be releasing his debut album ‘Desire Lines’ – not to be confused with the Camera Obscura album of the same exact name – on the 13th of November.

Despite this date in the still far off future, Fictonian is already gaining quite a bit of buzz off the LP’s first single, ‘Little Black Book’. The single, whose release proper will be on the 18th of September, now has an accompanying single. Singer/songwriter Roberts manages to achieve such a beautifully full sound, even as a solo artist, with ‘Little Black Book’, and in the video, we get to follow a young girl being a kid, going exploring…in a way that too few kids do in these so-called technologically advanced times. The song is a delight, and so is the promo. Watch it below.

Live Gig Video: The Libertines play ‘Up the Bracket’ headlining the Main Stage at Reading 2015 (Sunday)

 
By on Friday, 4th September 2015 at 4:00 pm
 

Today marks the release of the Libertines‘ third album, their first major release since ‘The Libertines’ 11 years ago. (Read my review of the surprisingly good ‘Anthems for Doomed Youth’ here.) For the faithful who trekked out to Reading / Leeds 2015 over the weekend, however, I’m sure they were more keen on hearing the band’s classics, including ‘Up the Bracket’. Well, you’re in luck. Sunday night when the band were headlining at Richfield Avenue, the BBC preserved the performance of that very song for posterity, and you can watch it below.

If you live in the UK, until the 29th of September you have access to over 40 full sets of action from Reading/Leeds 2015 through the BBC’s Web site for the festival weekend. For full details, go here. If you like outside the UK, you’ll be able to enjoy selected highlights from the weekend on BBC’s YouTube channel, including coverage from the BBC Introducing stage.

Video of the Moment #1898: Django Django

 
By on Thursday, 3rd September 2015 at 6:00 pm
 

Scotland’s percussion / synth-based wonders Django Django have a new promo out for ‘Pause Repeat’, which appears on their sophomore album ‘Born Under Saturn’, which was released back in the spring and is now available on Ribbon Music. Colours, shapes, sporting equipment and fruit and veg (yes, fruit and veg) feature in this colourful video that continues their tradition of weird and out there videos. But even the parade of citrus and broccoli doesn’t detract from the infectious beats of the song. Watch the video below.

All things Django Django on TGTF is this way.

Video of the Moment #1896: Zola Jesus

 
By on Wednesday, 2nd September 2015 at 6:00 pm
 

The fourth single from Zola Jesus‘ latest album ‘Taiga’, ‘Nail’, now has its own promo video. In contrast to the smooth moves and shapes Nikita Danilova was cutting in the video for ‘Hunger’, there’s a lot of sensual writhing in imprisoning latex this time around to match the imagery of Danilova’s repeated refrain “set me free”. Watch it below.

‘Nail’ is the title track of an EP to be released on Mute Records on the 18th of September. The EP will include at the yet unreleased track ‘Circles’ and Xanopticon‘s remix of ‘Taiga’ track ‘Go’. Our TGTF archive on Zola Jesus is this way.
