Spooky Black, Without You
We live in interesting times.

My love for Kiwi teen pop has no chance against Broods’ “Bridges”, especially considering the video’s teen drama.
Lyla Foy’s “Feather Tongue” is ominous and instantly memorable.
I could not be more excited for Owen Pallett’s next album, In Conflict. Here’s a lyric video for “On A Path” for which artist Steve Kedo stayed in Pallett’s house for a whole week and photographed every object in it, leading to some Fischli & Weiss-type amazingness.
More 90s-style delight, this is the first taste of Hercules & Love Affair’s new album The Feast Of The Broken Heart. Also on that record: John Grant (!) and Krystle Warren (!!).
"Hideaway" by Kiesza is a magnificent throwback to the torchy 90s dance I grew up with.
Also, at some point I wish to teach a class on videos that feature coordinated ‘dancing in the street’.
"Building on the hype of “Platoon” and “The Heat,” the secretive UK act Jungle has dropped another great new tune on SoundCloud, and it has us frothing at the mouth with anticipation. “Busy Earnin’” showcases a bigger sound commensurate with the now seven-piece (!) band that will be touring Europe with the great HAIM in March. Don’t worry though, because Jungle is sure to also wow in-crowds all over the U.S. for a quick tour around their SXSW appearance later that month.”
