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”

coldwarhomelp

 

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”

zolajeuss_dangerousvid01

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.”

Grimes – Go (Trailer) ft. Blood Diamonds

 

 

Published on Aug 21, 2014

Official trailer for ‘Go’ by Grimes ft. Blood Diamonds.

 

Grimes has released a teaser trailer for the music video to new track ‘Go’.
A collaboration between Grimes – real name Claire Boucher – and producer Blood Diamonds, the song debuted in June and, as reported by Under The Radar, will soon be released with a full length video. Click above to watch the 36 second preview.The song was originally written for Rihanna before being rejected by the ‘Umbrella’ singer. The news was announced on Twitter when Grimes revealed she’d be playing three new songs at the New York’s Governors Ball Music Festival.

Boucher wrote, “For those at gov ball, u should stick around for my final song because its special & top secret & new, actually im playin 3 new songs… but the last song is one me and @BLOOD_DIAMOND5 wrote for rihanna but they turned it down it so its kinda different from regular grimes”.

Grimes recently hit out at members of the public who edit her Wikipedia page to include comments she made about drug use while making 2012 album ‘Visions’. The page references a 2012 interview in which the singer revealed she “blacked out the windows and did tons of amphetamines and stayed up for three weeks and didn’t eat anything,” while making the record. Attempts to remove the interview from Wikipedia have proved ineffective, with the quotes repeatedly reinserting into her online profile.

“Editing a website that people take seriously and reference all the time so that it looks like i think amphetamines are cool is incredibly irresponsible,” said the singer via Tumblr. “I don’t want that to be part of my narrative, and if it has to be I want people to know that I hate hard drugs. All they’ve ever done is kill my friends and cause me to be unproductive.”

Hear Motley Crue’s Final Tour Anthem ‘All Bad Things Must End’

The group’s first song in two years also soundtracks two-minute video of farewell tour

“This ain’t farewell,it’s goodbye,”MötleyCrüe frontman Vince Neil sings in the group’s first song in two years, “All Bad Things Must End.” The group is currently playing the tune as the centerpiece of the set list for its “Final Tour,” video from whichwas captured at the group’s July 4thSummerfest gig below. The video also features a guitar solo, a bit of Gary Glitter’s “Rock and Roll Part 2” and their cover of “Smokin’ in the Boys Room.”

Motley Crue 2014-07-04 “All Bad Things”

Regarding the content of the song, drummer Tommy Lee told Billboard in May that the song is “definitely about this time right now with the band and what the feeling is and kind of all that wrapped into a song. I hate to say it’s like a goodbye, but it definitely references our time here.”

While the group has yet to release a recorded version of the song, Neil told the audience that the group would release the track to radio. The group did, however, release a two-minute snippet of the studio version on Monday as the soundtrack to its tour sizzle reel.

Last week, the infamously debauched metallers kicked off their farewell tour, which features opener Alice Cooper on dates ending in late November. Neil told Rolling Stone that the group had been planning its final run for the past three or four years. To ensure that this will be the group’s last time out on the road, each band member has signed a “cessation of touring agreement,” preventing them from playing live together again after this tour. “There’s no backing out now,” bassist Nikki Sixx said at the time. “It’s been, like, this fuckin’ blur, maybe because we’re going so fast. Perhaps when it’s done, things will come into focus. At that point, everyone in the band will be doing their own creative stuff, but there will be moments where we’ll miss this. But we’re not there – no tears yet!”

The tour features a new drum rig for Lee that he has dubbed the “Crüecifly.” The kit runs along and spins on a track akin to a roller coaster, even hovering over the audience a la the Spider-Man musical. It’s proven so dangerous that Lee had to issue a disclaimer on Twitter about why it has not been featured at some concert stops. “Want you to know certain venues cannot handle the Crüecifly!” he wrote. “It’s not our fault their roof cannot hang the rig! It’s massive!”
