Premiere: Dire Wolves – “Myriads” Video

There’s clearly no end to the well of creativity that the collective known as Dire Wolves (Just Exactly Perfect Sisters Band) draws from.

The Choppy Bumpy Peaches – Gugu (video)

It’s Friday, so get comfy and lose yourself in the psychedelic surrealism of The Choppy Bumpy Peaches’ Jodorowsky-esque video for their latest single, “Gugu.” The video is every bit as hypnotic, strange and doom-y as the track itself. If you dig what you hear, you can buy the track right now. -KH

Silver Machine – Lovebug

Dark-edged monochromatic neopsychedelia hasn’t been this cold and sly since the debut of The Vacant Lots. While this UK band’s sound bears some similarities to Hawkwind’s, of whom the group’s name derives from, I find their slightly industrial and minimalistic sound to be closer to the likes of The Velvet Underground and The Telescopes. TheContinue reading “Silver Machine – Lovebug”

The World of Promo Films (Part 1)

What we know of today as the music video started out in the ‘60s as the ‘Promo Film’ or “Promotional Video.” These were essentially short films made to advertise a band’s new single, usually to replace an in-person appearance on a TV show or, in The Beatles’ case, to make up for concerts in general.Continue reading “The World of Promo Films (Part 1)”
