M83’s Anthony Gonzalez has released another video behind his recently reissued 2005 album, Before The Dawn Heals Us. Following treatments for album cuts “Lower Your Eyelids to Die with the Sun” and “In The Cold I’m Standing” comes a strange but pretty video for “Moonchild”.

In the clip, there’s a series of utterly stunning shots of a forest illuminated by a mysterious triangle. Though it’s hard to figure out what the video means, with its scary hooded figures and lack of forward movement, it’s undoubtedly one of the year’s most beautiful visuals. Watch it at Facebook.

Along with 2005’s Before the Dawn Heals Us , Gonzales has reissued 2001’s M83 and 2004’s Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts in CD, vinyl, and digital formats, out now via Mute Records. The releases are also accompanied by two compilations of remixes, rarities, and B-sides: Dead Cities, Red Seas and Lost Ghosts Remixes and B-Sides and Before The Dawn Heals Us Remixes and B-Sides

Cold War Kids announce new album, Hold My Home, stream “First”

Cold War Kids have announced details of their fifth studio album, Hold My Home, which will arrive October 21st via Downtown Records. It serves as the follow-up to 2013’s Dear Miss Lonelyhearts.

The 11-track album was produced by guitarist Dan Gallucci and frequent collaborator Lars Stalfors (Mars Volta, Matt and Kim) at the band’s personal studio in San Jose, California.

Already we’ve heard the stirring lead single, “All This Could Be Yours”. Now, to coincide with today’s announcement, the band has shared “First”. The track is grand and regaling, a sonically uplifting mix of jittery guitars, handclap rhythms, and dynamic vocal harmonies. Again, Cold War Kids aren’t exactly reinventing the wheel, but rather emphasizing their core strengths of solid, enjoyable guitar rock.

Listen in below:

 

Hold My Home Tracklist:
01. All This Could Be Yours
02. First
03. Hot Coals
04. Drive Desperate
05. Hotel Anywhere
06. Go Quietly
07. Nights & Weekends
08. Hold My Home
09. Flower Drum Song
10. Harold Bloom
11. Hear My Baby Call

The band has also shared the music video for “All This Could Be Yours”, a black-and-white clip of one woman’s journey around a big city. Watch it below.

 

Watch: Zola Jesus’ video for “Dangerous Days”

Nika Roza Danilova, aka Zola Jesus, has shared the video for “Dangerous Days”, the lead single to her fifth studio album, Taiga. Director Tim Saccenti places Danilova amidst a number of visually-stunning landscapes, from the darkened corners of a lush forest valley to the glitchy innards of a 3D computer world. If you like your performance art videos with a generous helping of metaphysical pondering, then this is for you.

According to a press release, “The song is a pure emotional plea, a future primitive call to arms. To create a moment of light in these dark times was our hope. Eschewing a heavy narrative we let the images of the Earth, filmed in wide screen and mixed with a tense unnatural presence, wash over the viewer while Nika communicates her powerful message.”
