Looks like these guys have a new album on the horizon, Poison The Parish. Boy sure takes me back hearing them, their songs (Fine Again and Driven Under in particular) from Disclaimer II, sure do take me all the way back to high school. Weird!
Seether – Let You Down
But these guys have a knack for making some seriously impressive music videos. Have at you!
OK Go – The One Moment
Today I spent a few hours listening to the album II by Moderat, which, as you might guess, is the precursor to their latest album III. If you blended a bit Ratatat‘s vibe with a slightly more grounded Kiasmos, and threw some vocals in the mix for good measure, that would be a reasonable approximation to my ears. Must say I’m rather enjoying these guys. And you know, they seem to do cool videos on the whole so that’s certainly a bonus too.
Moderat – Bad Kingdom
If yesterdays Halloween tune wasn’t sufficient to unsettle you, well just maybe this will finish the job. This is one of those things that one might fortuitously stumble upon and then spend some time questioning the decisions that have led them to this point in their life. Everything about this is just bizzaro, and I can’t say I like the music but the sheer logistics of his getup are impressive to say the least. Case in point:
“The face can be sequenced or I can hold a button on the mic and then in real time control the x/y position of the face through an accelerometer in the suit, so the face copies my hand gesture. At the same time, this is happening the same input signal can alter my voice, i.e., I move my hand up, the face moves up and so to the pitch of my voice.”
You can read a chunky interview here to gain a greater appreciation of this guy.
Anklepants – ???
Well I was mildly horrified to find that the album this next song is from, came out waaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in 2001, which in case you’re time challenged, is 15 years ago. 15 years ago! Holy shit! This was right at the start of my developing music taste, and thanks to a complete lack of social life coupled with a pretty cool late night music show, I was introduced to a few gems of music. Take for instance this song and accompanying music video. I’ve remembered the guy playing xylophone on the skulls since I first saw this way back then. Weird how some things just stick with you. This is off Salmonella Dub‘s album Inside The Dub Plates which just so happens to have a circular image on the cover…
Salmonella Dub – Problems
I posted a song by these guys not too long ago from last years album (Meliora), recently they dropped a little EP called Popestar and I gotta say I’m liking the style they’re cranking. The tune and the video are both pretty cool.
Ghost – Square Hammer
So these guys have a new album out, Summer 08, and here’s the latest single from it. The video features the brain from the previous anatomy post who’s clearly escaped from his bottle. Another good video for the weird collection. You can count me a fan. You think he finally died at the end, hence the abrupt ending?
Metronomy – Night Owl
