Stone Cold Fox – Seventeen

The tag that was supposed to make us love this video was the fact that it featured things like hipster cheerleaders and blow up dolls. But the fact is, it's just a really good song. So that's why Stone Cold Fox should soundtrack today for you. Listen here: Stone Cold Fox - ...

Broken Anchor – Never Leave Me Alone

If the Manic Street Preachers were American, I imagine they'd sound something like this new song from LA's Broken Anchor. “This is Budweiser tallboy music, best heard coming from the stereo of a used Cadillac that required way too much effort to whip back into street legal shape... Think: If the members of Band of ...

Jem Warren – Heart Knows How

You're trying to look like you're working this morning, but you're not really, right? That's where I come in with new videos for you to watch. A while ago, we chatted about Jem Warren's new album. He recently released the video for the title track of the record and I love it, not only for its New Yorkiness, but for ...

Gotye strips off with his old band

So that was a cheap headline to get you to click, but I actually quite like this tune from Gotye's old/current/still making new music band, The Basics. Check them out: The Basics - With The ...

Everest Cale – Beast

Phew. Friday. How welcome it is. Here's a lovely new, New Yorky video from Everest Cale to destress your morning and put you in a suitably mellow vibe for the weekend: Everest Cale - Beast: (Things actually get quite dramatic at the end there, but count it as stress release for the ...

Ozzy Osbourne & Jessica Simpson – Winter Wonderland

In searching for new Christmas music this year, I found this video and I think I just ruined Christmas for life. This is so weird. I like it. I cant look away. I decided not to research how it came about because I want it to stay one of those wondrous and crazy things that the internet gives birth to, like ignoring ...

Black Swans – Be There

More often than not, you can tell from the first few words of a song whether the band is British or not. And that's not necessarily a bad thing - the Brits make sonic atmosphere better than anyone else. I blame the cold, as I do with most things in life. Because when you're colder, you cut out all the chaff and just take ...

La Resistance – Loathing

I got this video in an e-mail entitled "Awaken your inner child". That's pretty much something I never feel like doing - my inner child was a bit of a dumbass. But the nostalgic sound of La Resistance's new single caught me, and the nostalgic video got me giggling and relating to the adventure of discovery in the ...

Red Huxley – My Own Way

I got e-mailed this video on Monday and, as with most e-mails, clicked on the music link before I read anything the band had to say. (Y'know - keeping my opinions uninfluenced and all.) What I realised was slightly embarrassing but also pretty cool. Because of the wide open plains, the jean-clad asses of beautiful girls ...

Switchfoot – Restless

This is an interesting tune to me. I was in the depths of a pretty average winter bad mood the day we went to go and see Switchfoot live back in August, wondering about this and that and if it would ever be warm again, and if I really needed to be seeing a Christian band perform right then. And the lead singer, whose ...

Nechama Brodie – Hungry Love

If you put a dance beat behind a song, I suddenly feel like you and I are speaking different languages. But, that's not to say I don't welcome a bit of creativity when it comes to working with sound. Nechama Brodie is an indie singer from Joburg who says her first single, "Hungry Love" started out as an acoustic tune. ...

Bloc Party – Octopus

It's pretty freakin' obvious why this is the song of the week. Will you be catching these wonderful British crazies in Joburg or at Rocking The Daisies this weekend? I sure hope to see y'all there! Read more about Rocking The Daisies 2012. Buy tickets to Rocking The ...

Empty Orchestra – The Audience

I love the idea behind this music video, and in fact the whole song -- Press release: Empty Orchestra, who are on Tomas Kalnoky's label Pentimento Music, is releasing a new music video for their song "The Audience." It was shot at a super interesting venue, The Capitol Theater, a "haunted" building in the band's ...

Dashboard Confessional – Tall Green Grass

When I was lucky enough to go to Europe in its recent spring, this was my song of the moment. Now that the days are warming up here, it's come back to mind. Listen to it all the way through and try and not be filled with the promise of an easy, warm, new ...

The Outfield – Your Love

When we saw Rock Of Ages a while back, the only thing that disappointed me about the film (and I want to live my life in that film - this really was the only disappointment) was that this song wasn't in it: One of the best '80s songs of all time? Yes, I think so! Enjoy your weekend. ...
