Thursday-er-Friday Bears: New LCD Soundsystem Video - Bye Bye Bayou

Well, this would have been up yesterday had my computer not assed-out.

Two days after the release of their super-damn-good album This is Happening, LCD Soundsystem (more specifically James Murphy and LCD drummer Pat Mahoney) have released the video for their cover of Alan Vega's  "Bye Bye Bayou."

The cover was released as a single a couple months ago, but isn't one of the nine tracks on the aforementioned album. And even though the group is in the middle of the summer-long season of touring, Murphy and Mahoney seemed to find the time to create the seven minute-plus video. Realistically, it doesn't look like it took that long to  make, though.

This is Happening is out now via Virgin and DFA Records.

Wedesday Bears: New Toro y Moi - Leave Everywhere

Toro y Moi, not to be confused with Washed Out, emerged late last year with a polyphonic blend of beachy sub-pop with a lo-fi tinge. Months after the release of their first album Causers of This, the three-piece (or one piece, I'm not 100 percent sure) is already slating the release of their new 7", "Leave Everywhere".

"Leave Everywhere" is scheduled for release July 20, via Carpark Records.

Tuesday Bears: Harlem on For No One

Quick spot here before midnight rolls around.

Harlem appeared on For No One, a Chicago based music video-something or other. The Austin group performed "Be Your Baby" and "Someday Soon" from the band's April release Hippies.
