Pee-wee enhanced video up for Happy Idiot, from the new TV on the Radio album Seeds, due on November 17th. Also check out Careful You, where Tunde barely scrapes through the Chimpomatic no-singing-in-French rule-of-thumb.
Old school high concept/low budget video for Real Estate's track 'Crime'. Watch out for the Blood-sucking-extreme-sports-enthusiasts.
Suitably hazy visuals for this excellent track.
Playing the Palladium in November.

This album is on repeat all day in Chimp Towers at the moment.
McBean overheard Jaffe drunkenly bragging in a backyard about her state of the art 80's VHS camera. Ambulance City will mark the first time they've worked together since 1431 while serving drinks at Joan of Arc's execution.
Inspired by Swedish Erotica, Cpl. Klinger, and totes non-poser aspirations.

Quite enjoying this screensaver trend in pre-release promos. New Broken Bells album After The Disco out January 2014
Lyric video from Reflektor
Beefy solo track from Massive Attack's 3D with Congolese musician Jupiter.
Says 3D: "In 2007 I went to the Congo with Africa Express. I was lucky to hang out and listen to some pretty amazing musicians, Jupiter among them.
"This track is built with an unknown modular synth from Munich, a Moog and a Vermona drum machine, with help from Euan Dickinson and Tim Goldsworthy. And mixes by Bruno Ellingham. I wanted to mirror the energy and message in the song without complicating it. The b-side is a more relaxed and melodic using a Prophet 5 and a jupiter 8.
It is the second release on the Battle Box label, which is made and distributed through The Vinyl Factory. Paul Insect has designed the covers and label art. Everything is screenprinted and limited in number."
Hippies rocking out in what looks like an underground nuclear bunker in the Grand Canyon - what's not to like? Fanfare is Mr Wilson's follow-up to the mellow Laurel Canyon vibes of 2011's Gentle Spirit.
Via @coslive. "It’s easy to picture Friday Night Lights hero Tim Riggins cruising around Dillon, TX with this one blaring from his truck."
Another single of the forthcoming Pearl Jam album Lightning Bolt. They're getting more and more like the 90s band people think they are.
New one from Bon Iver's other project, album out in September
Managed to miss them at Glastonbury, but kept hearing good things about Swedish psych-freaks GOAT
Kurt Vile plays out his own version of Game Of Thrones in this video. Loving this album.
Empty landscapes and lens flares? Yes, there's a new Boards Of Canada album out, and here's a video for one of the tracks.
Can't think of many other songs that use the word "goose". Out on Greco-Roman later in the year.
They're back (in black). "The whole thing's been memorable. I'll probably forget it next month..." Feat. Rick Rubin as rock's OG Ben Gunn.
Bit slow on the uptake with this fun, ultra-violent POV promo for Russian band Biting Elbows. #NSFW
Been hoping there would be some new Black Mountain Army activiity soon - and look - here's two side projects on the horizon... Grim Tower finds Stephen McBean on a freaky "New Acoustic Death Folk" trip in the snow with Imaad Wasif. Album Anarchic Breezes is out May 21. "Let the free ride the breeze"? Right on, snow bros. Meanwhile Black Mountain's mellower wing Lightning Dust (Amber Webber and Josh Wells) are heading into Fleetwood Mac territory with Diamond, the first one from their new album Fantasy - out June 25. Various pre-order download options available. Should just about tide us over while we wait for a new Stormy High to finish off the giant mecha-smackdown playlist.

Gaspar Noé has directed the latest Animal Collective promo, for the track 'Applesauce'. The video stars model Lindsey Wixson and is intended to be watched in the dark - primarily to make use of Paul Sharits' film-as-film classic N.O.T.H.I.N.G. Trippy.
