MP3 of the Day #844: Demons of Ruby Mae

 
By on Tuesday, 15th July 2014 at 10:00 am
 

Multi-instrumentalists Jonny Gavin and Adam Rowley are Manchester via Leicester act Demons of Ruby Mae. Through Gavin’s soulful vocals and the duo’s well thought out, haunting instrumentation, you can clearly see in this track of theirs ‘Beneath the Surface’ that they’ve got heaps of potential. They’ve already been described as the love child of the xx and the National, and if that doesn’t pique your interest, have a listen below and see for yourself. If you like it, you can download it for free too.

 

Video of the Moment #1573: Bear’s Den

The new video from London folk trio Bear’s Den is a unique one, though I wish it was for different reasons. Last month, shockwaves went through Seattle Pacific University community when a lone gunman fired on students at the school, killing one and injuring three others. This promo for the band’s upcoming single ‘Elysium’, out on the 21st of July on Communion Records / Caroline International, doesn’t feature actors but instead director Marcus Haney’s own brother and his friends at the end of their school term, and because of the timing of his visit, the filming happened to coincide with this tragedy and therefore was touched by the events that occurred.

I feel like every time a senseless shooting and senseless deaths happen in America, the American people become more and more desensitised to what has happened, as if it’s a part of life here and it’s okay. It’s not okay. I give both Haney and Bear’s Den much credit for releasing this video; the song itself provided some solace to some of the students and I hope this song and video will serve as a wake-up call to our country that THIS CANNOT GO ON. We need stricter gun control. Now.

MP3 of the Day #843: Tourist

 
By on Monday, 14th July 2014 at 10:00 am
 

When you’re BBC radio presenter Rob Da Bank, you’re in a position to make demands. Case in point: the Bestival head honcho asked Tourist, aka London producer Will Phelps, to record him an alarm clock tune for his Radio 1, Will couldn’t say no. This was such an oddity, I couldn’t not post it.

For the handier of you folks, you can download it and loop it back on itself over and over again for your own personal alarm clock (because I’m guessing if you’re anything like me, you need more than a 30-second tune to help you wake up in the morning). Listen to the specially recorded piece below and it’s yours free from the Soundcloud widget if you’d like it.

More TGTF coverage on Tourist is this way.

Well, this is wonderful news. The funky ‘Time’ from Jungle finally has a promo video. Is Adidas the secret to the eternal skill of hip, funky dancing? Maybe. Watch the video below.

Jungle’s self-titled album drops tomorrow, the 14th of July, on XL Recordings. For more ‘Time’, watch the band’s performance of the song at Glastonbury 2 weekends ago here.

Video of the Moment #1571: Placebo

 
By on Saturday, 12th July 2014 at 10:00 am
 

Placebo‘s current single ‘A Million Little Pieces’ now has a promo video. Set in the year 3046 “long after a technological Armageddon where humans have reverted to a tribal society”, the visual from the song from latest album ‘Loud Like Love’ comes across as a kooky look ahead into what might be in our future. Does the song itself, with its sombre piano notes and Brian Molko’s usual moody yet always nasal lyrics, predict a terrible future for us? Watch the video below.
