Violent Soho Premiere ‘Dope Calypso’ video

Violent Soho Premiere ‘Dope Calypso’ Video On Clash || ‘Hungry Ghost’ LP Out September 6th On I Oh You

‘Dope Calypso’ is the opening track from ‘Hungry Ghost’. The video is directed by Timothy O’Keefe and follows the band around their hometown of Mansfield, Queensland.

The Buddhist concept of the ‘hungry ghost’ neatly sums up the urgency, the want, the search of Violent Soho’s music. Amid the riffs, hooks and wail of front man Luke Boerdam is a stark examination of the way we view the world, and the way consumer culture feeds relentlessly on itself and its urges. A fitting theory for an unapologetic, no-bullshit post-grunge cacophony, as laid bare on the Brisbane, Australia four-piece’s second album, “Hungry Ghost”.

Following 2010’s accomplished self-titled album (released on Thurston Moore’s Ecstatic Peace label) which delivered riffage-heavy highlights such as ‘Jesus Stole My Girlfriend’ and ‘Muscle Junkie’, the band found themselves at an impasse. The band, which have toured the US with Dinosaur Jr, Alice In Chains, Built To Spill and The Bronx, found themselves treading water creatively after years of touring.

But what it took to snap Luke and his bandmates — James Tidswell (guitar/vocals), Luke Henery (bass) and Michael Richards (drums) — out of the funk was a realization that all of their touring and experiences had given them a new perspective on music; hard work and that new thematic inspiration would lead to its own reward. “It was a process of figuring out what we did like,” Luke explains, “rather than concentrating on what we used to do. We’ve changed and grown as people, so the music we were writing needed to reflect that. Whatever excited us, those are the songs that we went with.”

What emerged on “Hungry Ghost” was a character study of the personalities and ideas of consumer society that inform their hometown of Brisbane suburb Mansfield, examining “the concept of the outsider, people who are a little bizarre and how they view the world”. And from the opening bars of ‘Dope Calypso’, chock full of fuzzy, tumbling riffs through to the subtle, almost delicate psychedelic swirl of ‘Okay Cathedral’, “Hungry Ghost” is Violent Soho growing up. “It’s stuff like status anxiety,” explains Luke, “and worrying about living up to other people’s standards, and in the process become so distracted, sitting on the couch watching other people live their lives. That mentality is behind it”.

There are, of course, still the ‘holy shit’ musical moments. The throat-tearing “yeahyeahyeahyeah” of ‘Covered In Chrome’, the grungy rock’n’roll power of ‘Gold Coast’ and ‘Lowbrow’s spitting anger. But the tempered slow burn of the album’s title-track demonstrates the maturation of the band’s melodic nous, continuing the work of the last record’s ‘Outsider’ and ‘Paper Planes‘. Adding to that are the shades of full throttle attack and pensive rumination on ‘Eightfold’ and ‘Saramona Said‘.

The band’s ability to relay a compelling character study and their broadened musical palette quickly dispel any notion of Violent Soho being some sort of slacker stoner band only interested in weed and skateboarding. “Hungry Ghost” is the album Violent Soho needed to make. Intelligent, melodic, and dripping with attitude, it’s also a record you need to hear.

1. Dope Calypso
2. Lowbrow
3. Covered in Chrome
4. Saramona Said
5. In The Aisle

Press Quotes:
“‘In The Aisle’ takes all the best chromosomes from the Smashing Pumpkins’ talented DNA. That means densely layered guitar spazzes and melodic punk drawling but there’s also enough scuzz on show to resemble five days without showering” — Noisey [UK]

“Violent Soho have always been on the cusp of greatness, and if “In The Aisle” is anything to go by, they might finally be reaching their full potential” — Indie Shuffle

“‘Generation’ is an irresistible blast of buzz-pop, while ‘Jesus Stole My Girlfriend’ and ‘Muscle Junkie’ suggest the fury and sensual languor of the Pixies.”– The Guardian [UK]

“Scales the energetic highs that made Mudhoney and Nirvana so exhilarating” — BBC6

Ell V Gore Premieres ‘Her Vicious’ Video and tour dates With Dirty Beaches

If Ell V Gore’s Sex Static sounds to you like it was made by four weirdos you’d meet at a pitch black, late night bizarre sex party beating their instruments half to death…well, that’s because it was. Toronto’s Ell V Gore is the project of 24 year old Ell V who has been playing in weirdo punk and no wave bands for the past decade. He is also a man known around town for throwing some of the freakiest late-night parties in the city (when he isn’t manning the microphone at strip clubs in between for cash). Sex Static, their debut EP on Bad Actors, is an industrial punk rock beat-down. It is a visceral, dark, and loud late night album that sounds like Chairs Missing era Wire and The Birthday Party being filtered through a kaleidoscope of 90 shades of black and grey. Known around the city for their stunningly intense live show, the experience has translated well to record. The rhythm section is tight and malicious, the guitars and synthesizers scrape, scratch, and scream, and Ell V’s controlled Lux Interior-esque howl bounces off walls with the guttural intensity of Michael Gira. Weirdos, freaks, and late night delinquents – your party has begun.

About Bad Actors:

Bad Actors is a Toronto based boutique record label focused on bringing you the best from the next generation of the city’s best songwriters, bands, producers, and beat makers. The label is headed by Ben Cook aka Young Guv, a member of Fucked Up, and the brains behind several of Toronto’s most loved and respected musical acts including: No Warning, Yacht Club, Marvelous Darlings, and The Scuzz. His résumé also includes: starring in some of your favorite childhood TV shows, ghostwriting some of the catchiest songs amongst your most beloved guilty pleasures, and producing some of his city’s most promising musical acts. Needless to say, the Guv can bring the goods, and it was only a matter of time before he started his own label. Bad Actors will serve as a stepping-stone to bigger things for young acts, while offering them an opportunity to work closely with one of Toronto’s most creative and energetic musical forces. Upcoming releases on Bad Actors include records from industrial punk freaks Ell V Gore, guitar pop masterminds Actual Water, weirdo soul-goddess MCs Bizzarh, 17 year old producer extraordinaire Harrison and Cook’s own Yacht Club.

Praise For Ell V Gore:

“Surging out of the cave like the Birthday Party trying to cover Joy Division’s “Transmission”, [Lobotomy] strikes a masterful balance of barked psychosis and mechanistic precision, of primitive trash-can clang and synth-shocked futurism.”–Pitchfork

“Noisy, viciously catchy no wave from this wonderful Toronto weirdo” — Noisey

scuzzy, gothy post-punk you might expect given what you’ve read to this point. Fans of The Birthday Party, Wire, The Cramps and all things WIERD take note” — Brooklyn Vegan

“[Lobotomy’s] a vicious single that sniffs the glue that built Ty Segall’s Melted and drills cascading rhythms into the back of your head” –Blare Magazine

Mount Kimbie Release Video for “Home Recording”

Cold Spring Fault Less Youth Out Now Via Warp Mount Kimbie Tour North America This Fall

“The duo was incredibly precise . . . in a live setting, there really is no one else out there quite like Mount Kimbie.” Village Voice

“Dancing to Mount Kimbie is like dancing to architecture: it feels like their compositions have hidden passages, back doors, and sky lights, beaming in sneakily beautiful, sun-kissed melodies. They are a modest band making audacious, idiosyncratic music, and I cherished seeing it live.” The Stranger

Having released their acclaimed sophomore record, Cold Spring Fault Less Youth, on Warp earlier this summer, Mount Kimbie have released a vivid, textured video for single, “Home Recording.” Directed by Anthony Dickenson, Rolling Stone hailed the video, “with its elegant blend of jazzy ambiences and dubstep textures, the album conjures vivid imagery by itself . . . Dickenson has created a perfect companion for the music’s evocative drift.”

Building on the success of their debut album, Crooks and Lovers, Mount Kimbie have established themselves as ambitious artists in the experimental arena of electronic music, adding rich textures to layered melodies and on this record, live instrumentation that expands their scope of sound.

The FADER call Cold Spring Fault Less Youth a “subtle epic” while SPIN acknowledge that it “maintains a sense of understated complexity, it’s very different from its predecessor . . . the increased presence of live percussion has created a larger, more organic sound, one now oriented towards the dance floor.” The recently released video for “You Took Your Time (feat. King Krule)” is a bleak, captivating black and white portrait of intertwined characters that results in what Pitchfork calls “something of a grime ballad.”

The duo will be touring North America this Fall, including dates at Seattle’s Decibel Festival with Nicolas Jaar, as well as Mutek Mexico and Asheville’s Mountain Oasis Festival.

The London Suede Premiere ‘Hit Me’ Video. Release EP

Since the release of their 6th studio album and first in over a decade, ‘Bloodsports’ has received international critical acclaim, deservedly positioning the legendary Brit Pop band back into the top of the charts across the globe.

Their follow up single to the hugely successful ‘It Starts And Ends With You’ will be the soaring and infectious 6th track from ‘Bloodsports’ titled ‘Hit Me’, and was penned by front-man Brett Anderson, guitarist Richard Oakes and keyboardist Neil Codling.

Having recently sold out at the prestigious ten thousand capacity venue Alexandra Palace in London this spring, the five-piece will be embarking on a 5 day UK arena tour in October.

‘HIT ME’ EP TRACKLISTING
1. Hit Me
2. Falling Planes
3. What Violet Says
4. Hit Me (Radio Edit)

“Calling Bloodsports a comeback album almost seems to belittle just how strong a record it really is; it’s nearly as good as any they’ve put out before.”
– Under The Radar Magazine

“Throughout Bloodsports, Suede consistently strikes the balance between decadence and elegance that marked their signature work.”
– Pitchfork

“Boasting strength, durability and psychic stability on comeback Bloodsports, Suede shows its true dramatic worth on pensive, atmospheric exhibitions.”
– Magnet Magazine

“Bloodsports still thrums with the darkness and danger that made the fivesome’s early records so worthy of your absolute allegiance.”
– FILTER Magazine

“Never once do they sound desperate on Bloodsports; they sound confident, and comfortable in the knowledge that this is where they all should be.”
– Boston Globe

“(Suede) have returned to reclaim the Brit Pop crown with the excellent new album ‘Bloodsports”.
– New York Post

“Full of the dramatic guitars and romantically anguished melodies that helped kickstart the British rock renaissance.
– SPIN Magazine

‘The record powerfully disproves the idea that it’s impossible for veterans to re-ignite the spark…twenty years on, Suede are still jumping barriers. Reunion act turned resurrected creative force’
– The Guardian

‘Swells with hook-laden guitars and pulsing bas and drums…no feeding off former glories here…they prove themselves vital and contemporary’
– The Independent

‘A recalibration. Suede’s renewed charge is obvious’
– Uncut

‘A galvanising return’
– Mojo

‘An album of largely tremendous pop songs. Suede are still capable of taking you over’
– Q Magazine

The London Suede – Hit Me video

Inlet Sound release new video for Young Hearts and announce summer tour dates

Inlet Sound have released the new video for their single Young Hearts – directed by Christopher Mills (Interpol, Modest Mouse, BSS) from their 2012 release The Romantics.

Director Christopher Mills (Interpol, Modest Mouse, BSS) had this to say about working with Inlet Sound:”YOUNGHEARTS is about an emerging band with an abstract idea and a whole lot of chutzpa. We follow the band, as they pool the few dollars and pennies they have between them, in order to hire a boat to take them to a strange place, thenback home again, only to be faced with the same reality many foraging musicians face – hunger for more. The video came together blazingly fast, shooting handheld out of a convertible on a hand-numbing day, and on the roof of a boat on Toronto Harbour. This was a fun project full of luck and good times.”

Michael Wexler from Inlet Sound said: “From the moment we found out that we’d be shooting a video with Chris Mills, we were all as giddy as a bunch of five year olds in line for the ice-cream truck. We loved his work on videos for Modest Mouse, The Acorn and The Joy Formidable among others for quite some time. The best part of this whole process was how easy-going Chris made the shoot day feel, despite numerous freezing locations and time crunches. We were also super blessed to have our dear friend Brendan Lynch work his organizational magic on the production side of the video. We worked into the wee hours of the night, shooting on green screen and stuffing our faces with delicious sandwiches, only to go home full bellied and excited to see Chris’ animated wizardry unfold. Et voila!”

Official video MS MR “Hurricane” + Secondhand Rapture out 5/14 on Columbia Records

Band On Tour In Support Of Their Debut Release Secondhand Rapture Available May 14th

New York City based act MS MR have filmed an official video for “Hurricane,” the first single off of their upcoming debut release Secondhand Rapture out May 14th on Columbia Records. Filmed in Southern California by writer / director Luke Gilford, the video is a bewitching glimpse into otherworldly experiences of suburban youth.

MS MR is currently on the road supporting Jessie Ware on a handful of North American dates playing what Time Out New York calls “refreshingly sincere new-wave-style mood pop.” The duo recently announced that they’ll complete a set of headlining dates around the release of Secondhand Rapture in May. This run will include a sold-out night in their hometown at Bowery Ballroom in addition to dates in Philly, Chicago and Columbus (full list of dates below). MS MR will also make their debut on summer festival bills including Sweetlife Festival, Boston Calling, Governor’s Ball and Lollapalooza.

MS MR is the moniker of Lizzy Plapinger and Max Hershenow. The duo’s debut album Secondhand Rapture is comprised of 12 tracks and was produced by Hershenow, with additional production and mix by Tom Elmhirst. The album showcases their compelling blend of pop, featuring tracks such as “Bones,” which was recently featured in HBO’s Game Of Thrones season trailer, the band’s UK single “Fantasy,” and “Salty Sweet,” a track that has quietly surfaced on the internet after its debut in the Pretty Little Liars series. Fans can hear more of MS MR’s new music on their upcoming tour dates.

The Boxer Rebellion To Release New Album, “Promises,” On May 14

MUSIC VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE, “DIAMONDS,” NOW STREAMING ONLINE

NORTH AMERICAN HEADLINE TOUR CONFIRMED FOR MAY-JUNE & LONDON FORUM SHOW ANNOUNCED FOR OCTOBER 11

VIDEO: “DIAMONDS” (FROM PROMISES)

London-based indie rock quartet The Boxer Rebellion are pleased to announce details of their new album titled Promises. Co-produced with producer Billy Bush in Los Angeles, CA, and being released on May 14 through the band’s own Absentee Recordings label, Promises is the uplifting and cinematic follow-up to the critically-acclaimed The Cold Still, and will be available to pre-order from Tuesday, April 2.

The Boxer Rebellion took to their London rehearsal space and transformed it into a recording studio where the songs for Promises would eventually come together over the last 18 months. Moving away from the more analog and darker soundscapes that enveloped the band’s previous album, Promises is a significant step in a different direction for the London four-piece – a hi-fi, soaring piece of work that truly delivers on the band’s epic, signature sound, and individual skill as musicians. From the retro-glossiness of the album’s opener, “Diamonds,” to the wall-of-sound that is “Fragile,” to the towering beauty of “Low,” “New York,” and “Dream,” Promises presents itself as an evolution in aesthetic – diverse in soundscapes but singular in grand ambition – for a band that continues to push and explore its creative ability with each new release.

As a first glance into the new album, the band today officially released their music video for new single “Diamonds.” Shot by British directorial duo Justin and James Lockey (aka Hand.Held.Cine.Club), the film stars lead singer Nathan Nicholson suffering a dead-end job and finding momentary escapism by way of a sudden free-fall flight through the air. Shot in the North of England, the team built an office space inside an empty shell of a building, worked with free-base skydivers in sub-zero temperatures, and plunged into ice cold waters to capture a stark and emotive film fitting to the song’s message.

The Promises North American tour will see the band’s immense live show re-worked from the ground-up, starting in Montreal on May 21 and hitting numerous cities for the first time ever, including Edmonton, Calgary, St. Louis, and Pittsburgh. The band will also play Neptune, Seattle (6/2); Fillmore, San Francisco (6/5); Avalon, Los Angeles (6/7); Metro, Chicago (6/15); and Webster Hall, NYC (6/20). A complete list of tour dates is below, and support comes from much lauded UK-based band Fossil Collective. The band have also announced their largest UK headline show to date, a performance at the legendary venue The Forum on October 11. Tickets are on sale now via the band’s Web site and will be on general sale this Friday, March 29.
