DJ Shadow released a new album this year, ‘The Mountain Will Fall’. While his collaboration with Run the Jewels on the incredibly catchy ‘Nobody Speak’ has probably overshadowed the rest of the new album, he’s got a new music video from the album for us. ‘Three Ralphs’ is a glitchy electronic masterpiece, brought to life by the artist Ruffmercy, who decided nightmarish cartoon characters splayed across a video screen was the way to go. Watch the video below. For more on TGTF on the incomparable DJ Shadow, go here.

White Lies released their fourth album ‘Friends’ last month; I reviewed it then and you can read my thoughts here. One of the oddly unimpressive songs on the album, ‘Morning in LA’, has been given its own promo video. Reading bassist/songwriter Charles Cave’s words on the song definitely helps explain why they wrote it, as well as how important it is to them to play for fans in North America:
“For the last decade it seems every new film released is a remake, and it’s a topic that already sparks debate. We had been wanting to do a performance style video for a while and the Killing Joke video from which ours respectfully steals is an absolute classic of the genre. When White Lies started, we received a fair amount of ‘gothic’ adjectives describing our music – something we always found quite funny. For ‘Morning in LA’, arguably our jolliest song yet, we thought the tongue-in-cheek gothic feel of the video was an appropriate aesthetic to go with.
‘Morning in LA’ is a love song to friends, and a hate-song to time zones, I suppose. It’s about trying to maintain contact with the people you care most about when your time zones don’t match up. Funnily enough, this is nothing to do with being on tour, but comes from the flip-side when we as a band were based in London for a year for the first time in a decade, and many of our friends had moved to America or Asia. It was illuminating how the differing time zones are as annoying as the physical distance between you both.
Of course all this talk of mornings in LA, and America has made us keen to get back out there, and see some friends – old and new – at shows supporting the new record. America is a huge place, and much as we would like to play five times as many cities, we’ve put together a couple of weeks of shows that we hope many of our fans can find their way to. We’ve got such fond memories of Chicago, of Boston, of Austin. We know all the fans in New York that were there at the first show all those years ago. We know the fans that travelled from Mexico up to LA just so see us. Well we are more than thrilled to announce our US tour will finish and then send us down for two headline shows in Mexico City and Guadalajara. Our fans around the world are all vocal in their pleas for us to play in their towns, cities and countries, but it has always been Mexico with the loudest voice. It’s one of our favorite places to play in the world and these shows are going to reflect that.”
To see all of White Lies’ upcoming tour dates in America, Canada and Mexico, use this link. They precede a new string of UK dates that were announced and went on sale last week. Watch the Killing Joke-inspired live video from them below.
Later this week, Essex folk singer/songwriter Beans on Toast (known offstage as Jay McAllister) will close out 2016 with his annual winter tour of the UK. The tour centers around Beans on Toast’s forthcoming 8th album ‘A Spanner in the Works’ which will be released on the 1st of December via Xtra Mile Recordings. The album features an ode to the year almost-gone-by, simply titled ‘2016’. McAllister says of the track: “It might not be the cheeriest Beans on Toast song ever, but sadly it’s been that kind of year.” You can watch the promo video for ‘2016’ just below the tour date listing, along with the brand new video for album track ‘We Made It to the Waterfall’.
The Beans on Toast Winter 2016 tour will begin and end in London, with the final show billed as a “Big London Party” at Omeara, a new venue owned by Mumford and Sons‘ Ben Lovett. Tickets for the following shows are available now and selling quickly, according to Beans on Toast’s official Facebook.

2016 has been the year of Manchester garage band Spring King. In June, they released their debut album ‘Tell Me If You Like To’ on Transgressive Records; read Carrie’s review of the long player here. Following the release, the group spent much of their summer bouncing from festival to festival, including appearances at Reading 2016 and at LeeFest 2016, where frontman and drummer Tarek Musa chatted with our Steven.
And as if that all wasn’t enough, they’ve got a new music video out today. ‘City’, a firm fan favourite from their debut. Its life began as the very first track to be played by ex-BBC Radio 1 presenter Zane Lowe on Apple’s global radio station Beats 1 in 2015. If this new video looks familiar, it’s because the promo for ‘Detroit’ was also related to a dating game show. In the previous video, the nerd ‘won’ the girl and in this next chapter, they go on their fateful date. What about the post-date fallout? Watch it all unfold in the video below. For more on Spring King, go here.

North West singer/songwriter Rick Astley seemed destined to be relegated to the late ’80s and early ’90s, when he made his name as a pop star. Following his ‘return’ thanks to the rickrolling meme, this past summer his massive hit ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ gained attention again when Melania Trump’s speech at the Republican National Convention in July when it appeared her speech stole from Astley’s (in)famous song.
We’re going to leave all that behind now and focus on Astley’s current activities, which include promoting his newest album ’50’, the age he is this year. Last month as part of a series of American dates, Astley and his band performed at the Ace Theatre at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles. Sadly, his spring 2017 UK tour in March and April is all but sold out. However, luckily for us, this performance of single ‘Pray With Me’ was filmed at the show for posterity, and it’s clear Astley’s voice is in fine form, even after all these years. Watch it below.
