VIDEO : King Krule - "Comet Face"



Today, King Krule is debuting a new video from his latest album 'Man Alive!'

The visual features cameos from King Krule's band members, who also played supporting roles in the previous videos for "(Don't Let The Dragon) Draag On" and "Alone, Omen 3" and follows his animated visual for "Cellular," and is his third collaboration with Wade, who also directed "Biscuit Town" from 2017's The Ooz and the 2012 single "Octopus."

VIDEO : Muzz - "Summer Love"

Last month, Muzz released their self-titled debut, “an album that bears the tide marks of its creators — Matt Barrick’s jazzy swing, multi-instrumentalist Josh Kaufman’s soft warmth, Paul Banks’s instantly identifiable baritone — but it defies easy categorization” (The FADER). Today, the longtime friends and collaborators present a video for the laid back and nostalgic “Summer Love.” On “Summer Love,” muted organ by Kaufman and flute by Stuart Bogie drift along as the song rides out on the main vibe and vocal line by Banks: “I?m in the race//I?m on the get-go//I wanna skate//I want the XO// Summer love//Summer love ends//Silence is sung we won?t remember.” The video combines “footage Matt shot a few years ago of a deserted drive-through theater, with clips we individually generated during lockdown and the majestically psychedelic collage work of the great Andrew McGranahan. It’s what we feel is a nice visual poem to accompany the song,” says Banks. “Rather than a summer lockdown document, we aimed more to emulate the work of Truffaut, Fellini, or Cassavetes and to capture three stories of romance and solitude. Lofty aspirations, humble result; but we hope you enjoy it even a fraction as much as we did creating it.”

Perfume Genius - "Without You" Video Competition WInners Announced



Around the release of his critically acclaimed new album 'Set My Heart On Fire Immediately' , Perfume Genius, announced the “Without You” video competition. Mike Hadreas asked his fans to submit music video ideas and 3 winners have now been chosen. Each director received $1,000 to make their vision come to life as well as $1,000 to be donated to the charity of their choice. The winners are Liz Lian, whose video will premiere today, Samantha Mitchell whose clip will debut August 4, and Kristin Massa, whose video will premiere on August 11.
"This song, and Mike's artist's statement about it, reassures me that moments of comfort and clarity are just as certain to appear as confusing, lonely moments are. It reminds me to be patient and to turn toward conflict within myself and view it as a beautiful, imperfect metamorphosis, rather than hide from it. This music video is about the exploration and discovery of self through the natural world. I aim to depict the unfamiliar, abstract, and jumbled parts of ourselves through elements of surrealism and magical realism. Narratives of self-discovery in media often center around coming-of-age stories of young white people as they enter adulthood. But self-discovery and reinvention occur throughout our lifetimes. Seeds of change sown within us can blossom into exciting, life-altering experiences when we least expect it. Annie Tezuka, who stars in this video, did a beautiful job embodying this experience. I wanted to shine a particular light on the experience of women who, as they age, are increasingly seen as they are in relation to others – mothers, wives, grandmothers – and for this video to be a tribute to the complexities and constant change within all of us, especially those women." - Liz Lian

Lian has designated The ACLU of Southern California as her charity of choice. SoCal’s long history of advocacy, litigation, and education defends civil rights and liberties regarding racial and economic justice, freedom of speech, government transparency, LGBTQ rights, privacy, gender equity, reproductive justice, immigrants’ rights, criminal justice and drug policy reform, and police practices.



Samantha Mitchell will donate to the Baltimore chapter of the Sex Workers Outreach Project. Sex work is work.

This morning, Muzz release a new single/video from their forthcoming self-tiitled album, “?Knuckleduster?,” which follows the previously released “?Red Western Sky,?” “?Broken Tambourine,?” and “?Bad Feeling?.”  Brimming with wall-to-wall guitars, reverberating pianos and a thunderous performance from Matt Barrick, ”Knuckleduster” is Muzz at their most immersive and grandiose. Shot below the American Treasure Tour Museum, t?he “Knuckleduster” video brings the focus to the song’s spacious sonics and musicianship of Barrick, Paul Banks and Josh Kaufman. “?While we were shooting the video for ‘Red Western Sky,’ we discovered this great space underneath the museum. Unplanned, we quickly set up and started filming again - capturing the video for ‘Knuckleduster’ on the same day?,” says Banks. “H?air was greener and times were simpler back then.? ”

VIDEO : Yo La Tengo - "Tom Courtenay", In Conversation With Director Phil Morrison



Today, we advance the cause of Matador’s Revisionist History series and the 25th anniversary reissue of Yo La Tengo’s 'Electr-o-pura' via a fresh look at the “Tom Courtenay” music video. Recently exhumed from our sub-basement storage facilities, this clip will today make its HQ premiere on Youtube.

Recollections are hazy, but we can say with certainty that the video was aired at least once on MTV’s 120 Minutes. After that, who knows? Maybe you saw it on a 5th generation VHS bootleg. Maybe you squinted through a greatly bit-reduced version using RealPlayer. Well, squint no more! “Tom Courtenay” is now available to stream in crisp, clear, and glorious high definition. 

The video is accompanied by a brand new interview, where Yo La Tengo’s Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley, and James McNew reflect on the film’s creation alongside director Phil Morrison ("Junebug"), who also helmed the much-loved YLT classics, “Sugarcube” (1997) and “I’ll Be Around” (2013).



Out this fall via Matador’s Revisionist History series, 'Electr-o-pura' remains one of the most beloved works in Ira, Georgia and James' catalog. Now in a gatefold sleeve and cut from the original 58-minute master, the new reissue is pressed for the first time on two LPs to ensure the highest quality of audio the album has had on vinyl to date.

Perfume Genius is asking fans to submit music video ideas for "Without You", from the new album 'Set My Heart On Fire Immediately'. Mike has written about his inspirations for the song below and encourages interested fans to submit a creative treatment for the music video they would like to direct.

Keep in mind videos should be shot indoors or outdoors respecting social distancing guidelines.
“’Without You’” is about a tiny moment of grace sustaining you through hard times. I looked in the mirror, which is usually such a jumble, and for a brief second i understood and liked what i saw. I didn't know that feeling was available to me. It left quickly, but it was enough just knowing it's in there somewhere hiding and waiting for me to figure all this out.”

Each director will have a video chat with Mike to discuss the song and video before getting started.

Submit your treatment with moodboard and budget (up to $1,000) via WeTransfer in the link below by Wednesday, June 3rd. The directors that Mike selects will be notified Wednesday, June 10th.

Yo La Tengo - ' Electr-o-pura' 25th Anniversary Reissue ; Lucy Dacus Covering "Tom Courtenay"



(photo : Michael Lavine)

Matador's Revisionist History series -- as vexing for some as it is lucrative for others -- continues this week with a 25th anniversary reissue of Yo La Tengo's 1995 masterpiece, the Roger Moutenot co-produced 'Electr-o-pura', now available in a double LP edition for the first time.

The 7th studio Yo La Tengo studio album and the follow-up to 'Painful', 'Electr-o-pura' remains one of the most beloved works in Ira, Georgia and James' catalog, and showed a stylistic range that at time was already bordering on the-very-difficult-keep-up-with (fast forward to 2020 and we'll just say "impossible").  From the single "Tom Courtenay", to the woozy & beautiful "Pablo & Andrea", to the climatic 9 minute, 18 second blowout of "Blue Line Swinger", this album was nothing short of monumental in an era that wasn't short for competition.

A while back, labelmate Lucy Dacus mentioned to us that 'Electr-o-pura' was released on her birthday.  We asked if she'd like to write a few words on the subject ; she's done just that and recorded a cover of "Tom Courtenay" as well.



 
I was born on May 2, 1995, the day that 'Electr-o-pura' came out.

Fourteen years later, I started high school and made a new friend who wore a leather jacket and boots, who expressed confident opinions about music that I had never heard. I devoured every recommendation they gave me in an effort to align my tastes. I wanted to be cool, or at least not uncool. I found out about The Stooges, Philip Glass, and Sonic Youth through my effort to win their approval. I loved it all, and my parents hated every new discovery. Cool was loud.

One day my friend brought me a stack of CDs, all Yo La Tengo, and told me to take them home, listen to them, burn them, and return them. I did what I was told. I liked those records from the start, and more with every listen. I’d lay in bed listening to one of their records, pause the song I was listening to when I got too tired, then push play upon waking.

I remember my confusion upon listening to Electr-o-pura for the first time. I referenced the tracklist on the back of the CD so I could learn titles, but the printed song durations didn’t match up to what I was hearing. I wondered if there was some manufacturing error and I wasn’t hearing the songs I was supposed to hear. “Flying Lesson (Hot Chicken #1)” is listed as lasting just over three minutes when it’s actually 6:42. “Blue Line Swinger” says it’s 3:15, but actually clocks in at 9:18. I know now from looking into it that Yo La Tengo intentionally misprinted the times, trying to combat short attention spans, hoping they would trick people into giving those long songs a chance. It tricked me, though I’m a sucker for long songs anyways. It’s interesting to think about how this move couldn’t be pulled today in a world of digitized music. And if people had short attention spans then, how short are they now? All to say, I liked that they were playful.



What kept me coming back to Yo La Tengo was their understanding of moods. I listened to bands that knew anger, bands that knew sadness, but I didn’t know of any other bands that could express a full life’s range of moods the way they can. From song to song, the music was anxious, celebratory, sorrowful, content, confused, etc. And even when they got loud or dissonant, it never felt hostile. The sounds could be harsh, even ugly, but they were joyful. Some songs could make me cry, but they were gentle, not malevolent. I was taking on someone else’s tastes, and in the process, discovering my own.

Tom Courtenay was the first Yo La Tengo song I learned on guitar. I didn’t know what it meant, but I knew who Julie Christie was and loved the line, “As the music swells somehow stronger from adversity / our hero finds his inner peace.” I didn’t know what the needle had to do with anything, but I couldn’t stop thinking about it. It was like any good poem, leaving space for me, between images. Now, I think the song may be about obsession with media, equating the allure of the movies and movie stars to drug addiction. Who knows, that’s just my take.

Eventually when Matador asked to sign me, the fact that Yo La Tengo is on their roster was a major component of my decision. They’ve been putting out great albums every couple of years for over three decades, experimenting and exploring with what seems to be an uncompromised creativity. That is worth celebrating, especially now, when any opportunity for celebration is a blessing. Happy 25th birthday to Electr-o-pura, and thanks for the music, Yo La Tengo.

Last month Perfume Genius released the single, “On The Floor,” off of his forthcoming album, 'Set My Heart On Fire Immediately'. Today, he drops a remix of the track from Tokyo-based producer, Initial Talk, noted for remix work for Dua Lipa, Rihanna, and Lady Gaga and is known for infusing early MTV-era 80’s sounds into his work. Here, “On The Floor” is reimagined into a dance club track that falls somewhere between Prince and Pet Shop Boys.

VIDEO : Car Seat Headrest - "Hollywood"



Video directed by Sabrina Nichols



Illustration by Cate Wurtz



Car Seat Headrest release a new song, “Hollywood” today accompanied by a Sabrina Nichols-directed video and an acoustic version of the song.
“Hollywood” is taken from the band’s forthcoming new album 'Making A Door Less Open', out May 1.

“This song is about Hollywood as a place where people go to
make their fantasies come to life, and they end up exploiting
other people and doing terrible things to maintain their fantasy,”
says bandleader Will Toledo, whose alter ego Trait appears in
the video in animated form. “There's this terror you're going to
lose the fantasy, and you're going to have to face the facts, and
some people will do anything to avoid facing that. It’s about that fear, and the pain of being subjugated to someone else's fantasy against your will, and it's all tied together under this banner of this physical location of Hollywood that we all know about and dream about, but none of us really want to think about what is going on behind the scenes there.”

VIDEO : MUZZ - "Broken Tambourine"


"Broken Tambourine"

Production, concept and story by: Paul Banks
Creative Director, artist and animator: Griffin Frazen







Muzz is the new project of Paul Bank (singer of Interpol), Josh Kaufman (esteemed producer/multi-instrumentalist and one third of Bonny Light Horseman), and Matt Barrick (drummer of Jonathan Fire*Eater, The Walkmen, and Fleet Foxes’ touring band). Today, the trio release their first official single/video, “Broken Tambourine”. “Broken Tambourine” begins with sparse, floating piano by Kaufman, before surging with Banks’ rumbling vocals, Barrick’s low percussion, and a lilting clarinet, while an open door during recording brings in the surrounding nature sounds of the studio in Woodstock and augments the song’s spacious atmosphere. Written, arranged and performed by all three, it perfectly encompasses the collaborative essence of Muzz, a group with recordings dating back to 2015, but, cosmically speaking, with seeds planted long ago.






So how did we get here? Why, casually, of course. Banks and Kaufman have been friends since their formative teen years, having attended high school together overseas before separately moving to New York City for further study. They independently crossed paths with Barrick while running in similar music circles. Some years on, they each remained in touch: Barrick drummed in Banks’ project with The RZA, Banks + Steelz, and on some of Kaufman’s production sessions; Kaufman helped on Banks’s early Julian Plenti solo endeavor; various demos were collaborated on; a studio in Philadelphia was co- bought; “what if”s and “we should”s were tossed about. When the opportunity to make music as a trio presented itself, the gentlemen pounced.

While “Broken Tambourine” is the band’s first official song for Matador, earlier this month, Muzz dropped “Bad Feeling” anonymously via Soundcloud. Stereogum recognized it as “a surprisingly loose and low-key indie track that piles on layers of beauty as it goes.” It chimes and slinks with a touch of panache as Barrick’s kick drum pushes the tune along and Kaufman’s Farfisa fills the space. Together, these two initial numbers from Muzz offer an early glimpse into the band’s dark and expansive sound, and genuine artistic chemistry.
