Video of the Moment #802: Grimes

By on Wednesday, 23rd May 2012 at 6:00 pm

Here is the brand new video for the atmospheric Grimes track ‘Nightmusic’ featuring Majical Cloudz. It’s proving a bit marmite on YouTube, but watch it below and decide for yourself. Could she be the next Bjork? She’s certainly proved herself extremely popular across the early 2012 festival circuit, so I don’t see why not.

Read my review of the amazing ‘Visions’ here; it’s out now on 4AD.

Live Gig Video: 2/3rds of Trophy Wife performs an acoustic version of ‘Microlite’ for Cock and Bull TV

By on Wednesday, 23rd May 2012 at 4:00 pm

I bloody love Trophy Wife and am quite depressed I still haven’t seen them live. This live recording of their first single ‘Microlite’ partially makes up for it. Filmed in the leafy environs of St. Kevin’s Park in Dublin when the band were over for the Dublin version of Camden Crawl 2 weekends ago, keyboardist Ben Rimmer takes to the fiddle (seriously!). But I’m not sure how I feel about Jody Prewett in those gigantic hipster spectacles. I approve of the acoustic guitar though. Watch it all go down in the embedded Cock and Bull TV video below.

MP3 of the Day (and more!) #547: Kyla La Grange

By on Wednesday, 23rd May 2012 at 10:00 am

Been wondering what’s happened to #8 on TGTF’s 10 for 2012 poll Kyla La Grange? Her single released on Chess Club Records in April, ‘Vampire Smile’, has been remixed by the cutely named Bristolian electroheads Seasfire, and you can listen to and download the remix below. And for those of you who haven’t heard the original, I’ve embedded the video below too. Enjoy.

She is currently on a mini-tour of England, making a stop in at Bath Moles tonight (23rd May), at Tunbridge Wells Forum tomorrow (24th May) before wrapping things up at London Village Underground next Tuesday (29th May). Her debut album ‘Ashes’ will be released on the 30th of July on her own ioki Records, an imprint of Sony, with whom she recently inked a record contract. (Well done, Kyla!)

Video of the Moment #801: Sigur Ros

By on Tuesday, 22nd May 2012 at 6:00 pm

The lead track from Sigur Ros‘ new album ‘Valtari’, out on the 28th of May, is called ‘Eg Anda’. The new music video for it appears to be a public service announcement on how to…save people from choking? Right. A bit odd. Watch it below.
