I really didn’t think we’d ever see Bloc Party return from their indefinite hiatus, especially with Kele Okereke becoming a solo artist in the meantime, but I’m happy to hear that they finally have a new album on the way. While I don’t *love* this first single, it sounds very promising in that they’re getting [...]
If you happen to be a fan of Harmony Korine’s wacked out Hi-8 flick Trash Humpers, you’ll probably be interested in his new video for “Gold on the Ceiling”, which also makes use of the same aesthetic. I would have given The Black Keys props for taking their hit song and giving it such a [...]
Here’s a new video for a song from Explosions in the Sky’s last album Take Care, Take Care, Take Care. If it reminds you of Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life, it could be because co-director Peter Simonite was also a second unit cinematographer on the film.

I’m not too sure about this video though… it feels like someone was just playing around with random settings in iMovie. As for the song, [...]
I was excited to hear that French electronic duo AIR had a new release planned for 2012, but I became even more intrigued when I learned that it was a soundtrack for a newly restored version of Georges Méliès’ short film Le Voyage Dans La Lune (A Trip To The Moon) (featured prominently in the [...]
