a cold freezin’ night video

The books new album, The Way Out, hits July 20. To say i am psyched is a drastic understatement. The video for the first, i guess you’d call it a single, A Cold Freezin’ Night, is on Vimeo now. Its a brain melting, superfied, wasteland of VHS nonsense and just plain scary shit. I love it. It’s like America’s Home Videos after a bag of mushrooms or what a Harmony Korine directed show on Nickelodeon would look like.

Forgotten Gems: Tin Soldier

on July 01, 2010

I don’t know if there’s ever been a more underrated band than the Small Faces. Many people know of the Faces, the group that formed when singer/guitarist Steve Marriott left the Small Faces and was replaced by Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood. Marriott went on to form Humble Pie with then unknown guitar prodigy Peter Frampton… but that’s all besides the point. For my money this is one of the greatest rock n’ roll songs there is.

Jeremy Enigk – Mind Idea

on July 01, 2010

Have a look at this gorgeously shot video for Mind Idea, a brilliant track off Sunny Day Real Estate fronter, Jeremy Enigk’s 3rd solo album OK Bear. The album is a couple years old, still, I hadn’t bumped into this video before. Currently, Jeremy is working with a reunited SDRE on a new album and, hopefully, successive tour.

Forgotten Gems: Rubberband Girl

I’d never really knew much of Kate Bush until the Futureheads came around and covered “Hounds of Love,” and now this song is one of my favorites, from her 1993 album, The Red Shoes.

I Am Way Too Psyched for Inception

To tide me over I have been listening to this:

<a href="http://music.zackhemsey.com/track/mind-heist">Mind Heist by Zack Hemsey</a>

I love the tuba bits near the end. Is it because of Jaws that the tuba’s low bellow forever instills in me a sense of foreboding? Thanks to the litterbox for linking to this piece of music by Zach Hemsey, which was constructed solely for the trailer and doesn’t feature in the film at all.

New Sufjan Album?

Pitchfork has heard from Bryce Dessner of The National, who says Suffy-J is holed up in a studio right this very second working hard on a new album that will “blow people’s minds.”

I’m going to temper my enthusiasm, but after long resigning a new Sufjan album to the same likelihood as a Cub’s world series, I am getting a little goosed about this news.

Dessner says, “We’ve played on some of the tracks and been listening to some of the stuff as he’s been working on it.” He added, “It’s going to be incredible. It’s going to probably blow people’s minds.”

Dessner also says that the new work won’t sound like the music Stevens has released in the past, and he offers the unsurprising tidbit that Sufjan is “very solitary in what he does”.

New Arcade Fire

I haven’t given them a good enough listen to have a substantial opinion yet but, first impressions are mild. Of the two, I like Suburbs best. Month of May sounds a little too generic. But that opinion is likely to change, we’ll see. Let me know what you think.

Nanna talks Braid with Slug

Bob Nanna talks early Braid with Slug Magazine. They reminisce old school touring memories and why Braid was just hitting its stride when they decided to call it quits.

“I think we figured Braid out around the time we broke up, even through Age of Octeen and Frame and Canvas we didn’t really think too much about what we were doing. I don’t think we ever really figured ourselves out, but if there was a time when we sort of did it was right around the time that we broke up. Or we might have figured it out a few months after we broke up.”

Pick up all the reissues at Polyvinyl here.
