Last week, I wrote out my thoughts about ‘Magic Mountain’, which marked The Drums‘ return to the music biz. There is now a self-directed, monochrome promo to go with the song, but unfortunately the visuals, which include an Excalibur-like sword and diamonds sat in dirt, do nothing to shed light on what ‘Magic Mountain’ is actually about. Maybe you can glean something more? Watch the video below.
Soulful Irish songwriter Hozier has released another teaser for his highly anticipated debut album, which is scheduled for release on the 22nd of September. This live version of ‘In a Week’, sung as a duet with fellow Irish singer Karen Cowley, was recorded at Kilkenny Castle in Ireland and filmed by Feel Good Lost Media. (I was lucky enough to hear a live performance of the song earlier this year at SXSW 2014; read my thoughts on it here.)
You can view the video for for the earthy yet delicate live version of ‘In A Week’ below or at the dedicated Web site http://www.hozier-inaweek.com. If you go to the Web site and share the video with your Facebook friends or Twitter followers, you’ll receive a free download of the audio in your e-mail inbox.

Seeing that their fans are surely chomping at the bit in anticipation of their album ‘Get Hurt’ to be released next month, New Jersey’s The Gaslight Anthem have now revealed the promo video for the title track. Stereogum make a good point that this song sounds “Killers-eque” and I would agree: Brian Fallon is sounding more Brandon Flowers than ever. Is this a newer, less brash version of the Gaslight Anthem we’re about to hear from? Have a watch of the video below.
The Gaslight Anthem tour the UK in November; all the details are here.

Manchester four-piece MONEY now have a video for the title track of their debut album, ‘The Shadow of Heaven’. The lyrics “I have walked in Heaven / So must talk in Hell / The cruelty of godliness within us / Is his loneliness” are explored literally as the band film themselves visiting religious sites (presumably around their hometown?), along with the band physically planting themselves among the capitalist shoppers of the Northern town, some of the shoppers even stopping to hang with them down on the pavement. The visuals are disorienting as the images flit from one to another, but I think that was the point, to match singer Jamie Lee’s dreamy vocals. Watch it below.
