German noise rockers Heads. released a really cool, self-titled album last month and the band has followed it with a really cool music video. The video is for the albums first track “A Mural Is Worth A Thousand Words” and I really like it a lot. The video has a lot of really cool elements to it, although it it mostly a static shot of who I am assuming is either Ed or Chris but with a lot of post effects added in. You can check out Heads. video below. I dig it. Continue reading

Årabrot is currently streaming this album is all of its noisy glory. Get some below! Continue reading

Philadelphia noise rockers Fight Amp have released the official video for their track “Ex Everything”, which can be heard on their recently released Constantly Off LP. The sludgy stormer is set to a Steve Perrong-directed clip shot on an old VHS camera. The group comments on the new video:
“If you aren’t already aware, we sort of have a soft spot for outdated technology. So it only made sense to shoot the first video for ‘Constantly Off’ straight to an old VHS camera handed down by our high school’s A.V. Club to director Steve Perrong. Throw in a touch of tin foil hat conspiracy, and the 24 hour news cycle, and there you have our new video for ‘Ex Everything.’ This was a lot of fun to make, hope you enjoy.”

If you want to hate your life and the people you love, then please do not stream Success after the jump. Ken Mode rule, you sucka. Don’t let this album slip past you. Continue reading

Noise rock duo Invisible Things have premiered the official video for their track “F”, which comes from their new album Time As One Axis, over at NPR. The discombobulating track is set to an equally weird and abstract clip directed by Dylan Pecora. The track is completely zany and colorfully disfigured yet doesn’t skimp on melody or the essential grooves. Check it out for yourself after the break.
Time As One Axis is out now on New Atlantis Records.
