Sunbathing Animal is the title track from Parquet Courts’ forthcoming new album which is due out on the 3rd June. Check out the new video below:
Here’s the new animated video for Australian singer-songwriter, Courtney Barnett‘s latest single, Anonymous Club.
The video by Celeste Potter has a beautifully retro look to it (and a style that reminds me slightly of a lo-fi Pete Fowler) – check it out below:
Anonymous Club is taken from Barnett‘s 2013 album, ‘The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas‘ – which is available now on iTunes.
Prolific Bay Area garage-rockers Thee Oh Sees have a new album called Drop out later this month and late last week they shared a new video for the album’s title track – check it out below:
Drop is out on the 19th April (aka Record Store Day).
I discovered this video tonight by Sumie (aka Sandra Sumie Nagano), a singer songwriter from Sweden. Interestingly she’s the sister of electro-pop four-piece Little Dragon lead singer, Yukimi, but her gentle acoustic songs are a very different kettle of fish – check out the video for recent single, Speed Into, below (it’s lovely):
Speed Into is taken from Sumie‘s self-titled debut album which is out now on Bella Union.
At Night In Dreams is my favourite track from White Denim‘s recent Corsicana Lemonade album, and now it’s their latest single.
It’s an absolute stonker of a tune and it’s currently getting plenty of radio plays too – check out the new video below:
It could be an April fool or it could just be one of Jack White‘s slightly swerveball offerings. Either way an instrumental jam called High Ball Stepper appeared online earlier purporting to be the first song to see the light of day from Jack White’s new LP, Lazaretto.
An instrumental is obviously a slightly odd first roll of the dice, but then again it’s not being billed as a single and the meaty guitar licks certainly sound like ol’ Jack. Check out the video below and see what you think:
Lazaretto is out on the 10th June via Third Man.
Gruff Rhys’s latest project, American Interior has seen him creating an album, film, book and app that tells the tale of John Evans, an 18th century farm hand who travelled from Wales to America in search of a tribe of Welsh-speaking native Americans.
The video for the album’s title track is directed by Dylan Goch and is described by Gruff as, “a distillation of what happened when Goch followed me on an investigative concert tour of the USA in 2012 in search of the remains of explorer John Evans (1770-1799)” – check it out below:
And here’s the trailer for the film:
Gruff Rhys’s American Interior is out on the 5th May.
