MEN ‘Off Our Backs’

MEN

MEN!!! Indeed, indeed.

JD Samson and LeTigre/Hirsute cohorts are back, this time in the incarnation of MEN. ‘Off Our Backs’ is the totally excellent first single from a supposed forthcoming debut album (anyone know when?). The video by K8 Hardy is awesome in a $3/of the moment/New Museum kind of way and grates along with the track deliciously.

They’re currently on tour in Europe and we all must, must, must go to their New York show in July at … gong sound please… New Museum!

Lynch Mob

Moby

Music videos used to be the breeding ground for up and coming directors; a medium to develop one’s visual style outside the stiff rules of Hollywood. But with music videos becoming more of a rarified art form these days, are we going to see more established directors making a foray into the action?

Typically perplexing and frankly weird, David Lynch’s new clip for Moby’s ‘Shot in the Back of the Head’ could be a harbinger of things to come. A dark, fractured masterpiece, the animated clip depicts a dystopian landscape of severed heads, apocalyptic dream sequences and some weird ass scribbles. More please!

Hair-ven!

Peaches

We’re living for the new Peaches track ‘Talk to Me’, the first from her upcoming album I Feel Cream. The video, directed by Brit up and comer Price James (Friendly Fires, Florence and the Machine) is a gritty melange that somehow reminds us of The Amityville Horror. Part Helmut Newton, part Margiela S/S 09 the video reminds us that there’s something innately creepy about hair, human or otherwise. Can’t wait for Peaches show next month.

Janelle Monae: the next big thing.

Janelle Monae

We’ve heard whispers about R&B singer Janelle Monae in the past. But since the SXSW dust has settled, whispers have grown into next-big-thing roars, with Janelle’s performances the most talked about of the festival.

With spaced out style and seriously smooth pipes, we’re thinking Janelle is poised to be a hubs video favorite.

Fever Ray ‘When I Grow Up’

Fever Ray

Fever Ray is Karin Dreijer Andersson, half of Swedish duo The Knife. Branching out on her own, the Fever Ray album is dark, spine chilling, electro-pop at it’s most delicious. The awesome second video ‘When I Grow Up’ is brand new and well worthy of a watch, as is the first, ‘If I Had A Heart’.
