New Video; Oxford Collapse - Young Love Delivers

I don't miss the VHS, in fact, I'm glad the thing has disappeared. However, certain things like Oxford Collapse's new video for their single "Young Love Delivers" makes me hesitate. Shot purely with a past-heavy intent, the video concludes the journey of the band in their Delorean and their 80's (90's?) inspired basement.

At the end, the tape is destroyed and I return to normal.

The Tallest Man on Earth on Shoot the Player

I'm arrogantly oblivious to Shoot the Player (usually I look for La Blogotheque for my obscure live videos). It's as good as Vincent Moon's website, but some how I always seem to forget it's even there - stupid, yeah, my fault. The fact of the matter is I'm making up for it (more credit towards Captain Obvious for that) by posting these videos from The Tallest Man on Earth as he performs "Where Do My Bluebird Fly" and "Stepstone."

Blackout Breach

I've been stuck in some intermediate rut lately - I cannot sleep. It's fairly early in the morning for me right now and the sun has been up for a good couple of hours, but I haven't been able to rest at all. As a result of that, I've been chasing some weird, obscure noise-fun that could be able to tame the omnipotent off-focus drive I've been mirroring through.

That's where Blackout Breach comes in.

I wouldn't call their sound indeed fun, but rather a nervous blend that seems adequate for my disposition. Carey Mercer, the lead singer, lure's his songs off Blackout Breach's new album Skin of Evil through a trembling texture that reflects an out of place Tunde Adebimpe, if Tunde made a side project that people gave less of a damn about. Either way, it did something to me (bad or good, I don't know) and maybe it'll have a similar effect on you.

If not, sorry.

New Video; Beirut - La Llorona

Beirut's, or Zac Condon if you want to be accurate, have released a video for their newest single "La Llorona" from the upcoming EP and Side Project March of the Zapotec and Realpeople Holland. Condon's band seems to have grown to immense sizes, as seen in the video (directed by Owen Cook). Although the cartoon's may make it seem exaggerative.

Video Found at Stereogum

Great News from the Home Front

The Watchmen court hearings have been cancelled!! The Hollywood Reporter has the rest of the details, but this could mean that FOX Studios and Warner Brothers could be coming closer to a settlement.

Good day to all.

Some Real Estate

Gorilla vs. Bear is usually there to help out on slow Internet days like today, so I'm very thankful that Chris has put up these two MP3's from Real Estate. It's a collection of fuzz pop with a touch of surf in it, for those who miss that kind of music during these cold months.

Real Estate's Self-Titled 7" is due out February 1st via Underwater Peoples. Pre-Order Here.

Here's two more videos that made their online debuts today that are beginning to make their ways around; Of Montreal's "An Eludrian Distance" (via Culture Bully) and Morrissey's "I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris" (via Pitchfork).

Amy Sedaris and Teh Internets

In this video from Comedy Central Insider, the extremely funny Amy Sedaris explains the Internet(s) to those who still haven't figured it out. Key notes being how Amy explains Blogs and Michael Showalter describing the socialism of it all.

Radiohead for the Homeless

"It Can Happen to Anyone" is the name of the ad that the National Coalition for the Homeless put out with Radiohead's "Videotape" scoring the background. Using Thom Yorke seems to be the only national resource that will honestly make people care about the homeless.

Well, for 30 seconds, at least.
