New Dead Captain tune and video

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , , on July 1, 2018 by dc

Tameside duo, Dead Captain have just released the video for their new tune, Vermillion, and it’s a strange little treat.

The accompanying NSFW video features a magical tea towel, unicorns, smokey country lanes and ‘blink-and-you’ll-miss-them’ cameos from 80’s icons, Max Headroom and Carol Vorderman – check it out below:

According to the single blurb, Dead Captain’s debut album will be out “sometime between the collapse of Brexit and the impeachment of Trump“. So, that’s either, never or sometime next year then!

Great new music… Lay Llamas

This coming Friday (June 15th), Italian psychedelic rockers, Lay Llamas, release their second album, Thuban.

Their first album, Ostro, was released back in 2014 and is packed with lots of krautrock influenced psychedelia, afrobeat rhythms and hypnotic otherworldliness. There are obvious current touchstones like King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Goat, The Limiñanas and Clinic, but there’s something a little bit different to their sound too, an astral and wide-eyed aura that sucks in lots of influences but never sounds copy cat. There’s a masterful blend of spacey psych jams, trippy mellow moments and hooky motorik grooves, and that little bit of magic that hooked me in as soon as I heard them.

With the recent success of Aussie psychedelic acts in the shapes of Tame Impala, KGATLW, Pond and Jagwar Ma, and the rise of psychedelic festivals across Europe, it’s a bit of a surprise their debut album didn’t get a wider audience. Hopefully their sophomore release will change all that.

Ahead of the album’s release, three of Thuban’s eight tracks have recently seen the light of day on both Youtube and Spotify. Check out, Holy Worms, Altair and Silver Sun below:

You can follow Lay Llamas on Twitter @LayLlamas. Thuban is out on Friday.

Bon Iver – 33 GOD – new (lyric) video

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 30, 2016 by dc

Bon Iver are back and they’ve gone all futuristic (n’ shit). High pitched robot gurgles? Check. Swirling synth wobbles? Check. R&B aliens moaning stuff from time to time? Check. But it’s Bon Iver and it all works.

It’s basically Bon Iver of old with extra splashes of one of Justin Vernon‘s other “side projects”, Volcano Choir (and dare I say it, Kanye – shhhhh). Check out 33 GOD below and see what you think:

33 GOD is taken from the band’s forthcoming record 22, A Million, which is due to be released 30 September.
