Deadmau5 - Fn Pig

An orchestral remix slash visual project by Michael Gold. I think it works brilliantly.

Zhu - Paradise Awaits

This one is nice and funky, and I love the visuals. Awesome stuff.

Arca - Held Apart

I'm heading on an impromptu journey to Toronto tomorrow, so I may not get to updating this until I return on Monday night, but hopefully I'll fit in one more post before I go. Here's some visual treats for you to wind down this hectic Wednesday.

Led Zeppelin - Rock And Roll probably this one. New video from the legends? Sure, why not!

Fly Golden Eagle - Horse's Mouth

I get the feeling these guys wish they were rockin' out in a different era...

Alt-J - Every Other Freckle

New album out from this crazy fella, looking forward to giving it a listen.

The Budos Band - Burnt Offering

Doom metal slash soul? This is awesome.

Charles Bradley - Where Do We Go From Here?

It's like modern day Motown. Can't go wrong with that.

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings - Retreat!

...and I was doing so well... It was a busy weekend, and there'll be a few more on the way but I'll try to get this done every day anyway. Crazy news about Jian, big evening in store for Toronto, and I just ate a mango. I think we'll skip the metal today and go straight for the soul.

Thea, Rose Ryot, and Jaw - Drink

I have no idea who these people are but this is clearly serious business.

Midnight Magic - Vicious Love

Kind of a trippy funk dub vibe from this one. Interdasting.

Imaginary Cities - Say You

A little bit of rock, a little bit of soul. Not bad, not bad.

Hey Rosetta! - Soft Offering (For The Oft Suffering)

I'm excited to hear this new album. I have a copy but haven't listened to it yet, weird huh? Anyway I'll get to it today. The last release kind of left me a little underwhelmed, but I'm enjoying this new track. It's a little different sounding, kind of a mix of Peter Gabriel and early (i.e. good) Coldplay. More of a rock feel rather than orchestral. That's not at all a bad thing. Check it out.

Wintersleep - Jaws Of Life

These guys have just completely sunk into oblivion. They had so much promise and somewhere the edge got just fell away. Mismanagement maybe? This is from their 2005 album, a brilliant offering, and one that had, unbeknownst to me, a plethora of videos released, all seemingly directed by Sean Wainsteim. Maybe he was a friend of a friend, or a label hiree, but I just feel like every one of them completely missed the mark. As if they were more to act as a show reel for what tricks the director had rather than actually having anything to do with the music.

Sam Roberts - Shapeshifters

Let's do some Canadian rock today. These guys from Montreal are always hit and miss for me. This latest album was really upbeat, rocky, but I just felt a tad over-produced. The drum tracks sounded kind of dry and stale, and the vocals sound processed and squashed and chorused to death. But hey, it's a catchy tune and I like the video. It's probably much better live.
