Here’s a cracking new tune from Steve. Steve is the minimalist alias of, Jane Parker, the former singer of Rude Club, who back in the late 90’s released the excellent singles, Men In Suits and Foul Mouthed Punter. Check out, Emergency Art Rate below:
Emergency Art Rate is taken from Steve’s debut EP, Danger! High Failure Rate. The self-produced EP also includes the tracks, 2 Point Nearly Zero, Flik Flak and Electric Steam And Diesel.
The EP (which will be released on 18th May) is the first release on Elbow frontman, Guy Garvey‘s new record label, Snug Platters and like all planned releases will be pressed on 10” vinyl and limited to 1,000 copies.
Purposefully ridiculous and titillating. Simultaneously awful and entertaining, here’s a new David Hasselhoff music video oozing with 80’s pastiche:
True Survivor is the lead track from KUNG FURY, a short Kickstarter backed film that is described by it’s makers as, “an over-the-top action comedy” featuring, “arcade-robots, dinosaurs, nazis, vikings, norse gods, mutants and a super kung fu-cop called Kung Fury, all wrapped up in an 80s style action packed adventure.”
The short 30 minute film is directed by David Sandberg and is due for release in late May. KUNG FURY will be available to download for free.
Justin Vernon’s inaugural Eaux Claires Festival takes place in Wisconsin in July. To hype up ticket sales they’ve released a video of Vernon covering, Inside Out by Spoon (who also play the festival) out in the woods under a lovely glimmering moon. Check the video out below:
Legendary b-movie auteur, John Carpenter may have effectively announced his retirement from film-making but he’s still making music.
Earlier this year Carpenter released Lost Themes, an album full of sinister synth instrumentals that echo his previous scores for films like Halloween, Escape From New York, Assault On Precinct 13 and The Thing.
Check out the video for one of Lost Themes‘ highlights, Night below:
