Chicago psychedelic rock band Secret Colours put out a fantastic new video this week for the song “Blackhole”. It was directed by Cory Solon along with Katey Meyer who is also the actress in the video. Good song and a good video. Definiely check out the band on their website here.
Lana Del Rey posted a new video today on her Twitter called Chelsea Hotel No 2. It’s a pretty and quiet tune originally done by Leonard Cohen and she certainly does it justice. The dark and minimal video is very appropriate for the song and for Lana. It’s a nice lullaby for a Wednesday night in Chicago…or New York.
Sigur Rós has a new video out for the song “Brennisteinn”. It’s dark, it’s beautiful, it’s heavy. The new album Kveikur comes out in June.
Russian band Biting Elbows has a new music video that’s spreading around the internets like crazy, and for good reason. Directed by Ilya Naishuller, the POV action is amazing, involving long takes, fights, a brilliant thumbnail of boobs when the video is embedded, and another reason to buy a GoPro. Needless to say, we’re big fans of this video here at Panic Films HQ.
Bands from long ago just keep coming back these days. Today we got a new The Postal Service song called “A Tattered Line of String”. It’s not much of a music video, but the song is fun and that’s a hell of a record player the vinyl is spinning on. I hope there’s a music video in the works and I hope at least this record player makes a cameo.
This is the video for the great new single from Suede. It’s from the album Bloodsports that comes out in the US on March 19th. I hope they tour the states for this one because I will certainly be there.
Happy Sunday evening. The weekend flew by and I’m just getting to putting up all the new music from the past week and some from the past month. Let’s start with Suede‘s first new song in over 10 years “Barriers”. It’s definitely Suede but I hear a lot of The Tears and Brett Anderson’s solo sound. I can’t wait to see what the new album sounds like.
Pulp released “After You” produced by James Murphy, formerly of LCD Soundsystem, and you can definitely hear his influence in the song. Classic Pulp right here and it’s just so good.
I was able to see The Faint last month performing their album Danse Macabre that was just reissued. They’ve also put out the new song “Evil Voices” and it’s great. I hope it’s the beginning of more new music from The Faint. Lord knows we need it.
Chicago has seen some amazing live music lately. I’ve been to more shows in the past couple of months than I have in a long time, so I compiled this Youtube video playlist of all the great bands I’ve seen. From an amazing experience seeing New Order last night which included hanging out backstage, spotting Irvine Welsh and enjoying free Half Acre beer, to spontaneously seeing The Psychedelic Furs, and a lot of shoegazey goodness from bands like Ringo Deathstarr and Raveonettes. Let’s not forget newer bands like Cold Showers, Secret Colours, and Australian band DZ Deathrays. There was also an evening spent seeing a good friend on tour playing drums with Crocodiles. I’m tossing Morrissey into the playlist because even though his show was postponed, he’s next on my concert calendar. His mother got sick and is in the hospital so Morrissey flew to England to be with her. Our thoughts go out to his family. So should yours. It’s a good time to be in Chicago and I can’t wait to see more good shows in the near future.
