VIDEO PREMIERE: SUGAR CANDY MOUNTAIN “MAR-A-LAGO”

May 7th, 2018

Oakland duo Sugar Candy Mountain come beaming in this morning with AM gold from a parallel universe—or is this one the parallel universe now?—that's perfect for walking on the beach at the end of On The Beach, with an especially charming video directed by Arsenii Vaselenko that finds a perfect balance between sci-fi optimism and retro what-could-have-been nostalgia. (That's what laser light shows do best!) The song comes from Sugar Candy Mountain's brand-new Do Right album, released last week on People In A Position To Know, and singer/guitarist Ash Reiter explains here just how she got to "Mar-A-Lago":

VIDEO PREMIERE: VENEER “IDIOT SAVANT”

May 3rd, 2018

Pat Salway is the guy—or the cosmic receiver for the workings of a certain specific rock 'n' roll spirit, as he tells it—behind the band Veneer, whose "Idiot Savant" is raggedly charming Bowie-Lou street rock that sounds like it broke off the leading edge of 1976. (Especially a record like this.) Veneer's Yesterday's Freshies (which includes contributions by Rachel Rufrano, Justin Janer and the Buttertones' London Guzman) came out on Burger last fall—read our review—and you can snag a copy for yourself here, and keep an eye-slash-ear on Salway and Veneer here.

VIDEO PREMIERE: AVALON “DOWNHILL TOGETHER”

May 2nd, 2018

The engimatic Avalon is back with this waking-dream of a new video, developed and directed by Avalon herself and shot and edited by artist Chrysanthemum Supernova, and it's positively dripping with David Lynch-ian atmosphere—which makes a perfect complement to the already smoky/sultry music, of course. Watch it here! This song is paired with "Deadbeat Boy" on Avalon's new and very limited 7" on Metropolitan Indian, available with signed poster here. She'll also be performing at the hotly tipped Collapsing Scenery residency at Zebulon on May 14—it's free and there's more info here.

VIDEO PREMIERE: THE PESOS “ANOTHER LIFE”

May 1st, 2018

The Pesos have a new album coming soon on Lolipop and here's a new video to go with it. "Another Life" is swampy/beachy/off-the-beaten-path-y garage rock—slowed down and bummed out—with lots of wide-open desert visuals—think beautiful but bleak, if that helps you figure out the vibe for this song about times past. Keep up with the Pesos here and watch for their Laissez Faire album on Lolipop shortly!
