Video of the Moment #1314: Arcade Fire

By on Monday, 9th September 2013 at 6:00 pm

I must admit, I’m not a big Arcade Fire fan by any stretch of the imagination, so the news that a song called ‘Reflektor’ had been leaked online a couple days ago didn’t excite me. However, I think the tidal wave of anticipation from cyberspace is just beginning and I’ll just be along for the ride, no matter how much I’m (not) feeling it. You can watch the interactive video for ‘Reflektor’ here. Note: you’re going to need Google Chrome, either a mouse or webcam, and a smartphone or tablet to interact with it.

Edit 10/09/13: the real promo video for ‘Reflektor’ posted after hours yesterday, so I’m putting it up on this post now. Hello, ’80s.

Video of the Moment #1313: Young Kato

By on Friday, 6th September 2013 at 6:00 pm

Young Kato have released the promo video for ‘Drink Dance Play’, the title track of their forthcoming EP to be released on the 28th of October. They’re going to be a force to be reckoned with, judging from the reaction of their live performance at this year’s Great Escape. As you could probably surmise from the song title, the general feel of this from the Cheltenham band is one of youth, joy…and debauchery. Within reason. It’s a nice way to usher in the weekend. Watch the video below.

MP3 of the Day (and more!) #779: Wild Swim

By on Friday, 6th September 2013 at 10:00 am

Stay with me on this, ok? London’s Duologue will be playing a show at XOYO on the 25th of September and will be supported by Oxford’s Wild Swim. Duologue remixed Wild Swim’s ‘Another Night’, Wild Swim returned the favour by remixing Duologue’s ‘Cut and Run’. This is an mp3 of the day post, because Duologue is offering up their remix of ‘Another Night’ as a free download on their Facebook page here. But you can listen to both remixes in the Soundcloud widget below.

Going back to Wild Swim now, the Oxford band is releasing a single on the 21st of October, called ‘New Dawn’, and it’s just been released to radio this week. You can listen to that below too.

Esben and the Witch‘s new video is for the song ‘Iceland Spar’, the opening track from their current album ‘Wash The Sins Not Only The Face’. It’s a montage of the band’s footage of their European tour back in May 2013. Watch it below.

Live Gig Video: The 1975 cover One Direction’s ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ in Radio1 Live Lounge

By on Thursday, 5th September 2013 at 4:00 pm

Just when you though the Radio1 Live Lounge couldn’t get any weirder than Biffy Clyro going in there and covering Vampire Weekend’s ‘Diane Young’, The 1975 come round with this surprising gem that is slower and slowful. Yes, ladies and gentlemen. Your ears are not deceiving you. The Mancunian band is actually covering One Direction’s ‘What Makes You Beautiful’. Even more hilarious, frontman Matty Healy introduces the clip, looking a little confused and saying, “I don’t know where the rest of them are…” and pointing to a virtual sign. I’mn also wondering where those glasses went that are in the still on the YouTube video…

Read my review of the band’s self-titled debut album on Dirty Hit here; it was just released on Monday.
