  • Wytches 'Robe for Juda' Video

    Wytches Host a DIY Horror Show in 'Robe for Juda' Video

    Brighton, England trio the Wytches were one of the 40 best things SPIN saw at SXSW, so we're quite excited to see the lads release their "Robe for Juda" video. The shouty, surfy song hails from their forthcoming debut LP, Annabel Dream Reader, but rather than celebrate their summer Partisan release with a well-produced clip, the band went in the opposite direction, spending just £200, according to a press release. If there's a premise here, it's pretty vage one, as the Wytches are shown playing in an empty hall while some pals in DIY costumes run around the stage. One guy looks to be playing the part of the sun, while two other dudes fan the band with blankets. There's a bit of choreography, some creepy masks, and a whole lot of bedlam, which seems to be the band's M.O. following their similary lo-fo video for "Gravedweller."

  • Courtney Love Bruce Springsteen Video

    Courtney Love Doesn't Like Bruce Springsteen Because Saxophones

    Sigh. Less than a week after Courtney Love made a bit of peace with her late husband's Nirvana bandmates at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, the erstwhile Hole singer released a video in which she talks about her lack of love for another of the ceremony's attendees, Bruce Springsteen. To be fair, the clip is part of her ongoing YouTube series "Courtney Love on...," which was filmed a while ago judging by the fact that some of the videos, which mainly feature the controversial rock star talking into a camera from the back of an SUV, were released back in March. Still, the timing of it is slightly odd, given that her main complaint about Springsteen is that "saxophones don't belong in rock 'n' roll."After an exasperated Love repeats "they just don't belong," the video cuts to a photo of late E Street Member Clarence Clemons and an off-key sax note.

  • OFF! 'Red White and Black' Video Dave Foley Brian Posehn Nazis

    Tool and Melvins Members Cameo in OFF!'s 'Red White and Black' Video

    Back in February, we learned OFF! hate hippies, cops, and happiness. Now, the punk supergroup led by FLAG's Keith Morris has a new target of scorn: Fascists. Their new video for "Red White and Black" features Kids in the Hall star Dave Foley and metal-loving comic Brian Posehn as a couple of sorta-Nazis (they have the outfits down, at least) who perform to a white-power crowd in a small bar. Meanwhile, the bar's staff tip off a gang of black bikers about the racist concert, leading to a bit of a disagreement between the rival parties. Keep an eye out for a few familiar rock faces in the crowd, including Tool's Danny Carey, the Melvins' Dale Crover, Jesus Lizard's David Yow, and TSOL's Jack Grisham. OFF!'s third album, Wasted Years, is available now via Vice Records.

  • 'Portlandia' Enlists Josh Homme as Carrie Brownstein's Sloppy Gay Brother

    'Portlandia' Casts Josh Homme as Carrie Brownstein's Sloppy Gay Brother

    This season of Portlandia has been top notch when it comes to musician cameos. St. Vincent showed up twice to give advice to a tax lawyer and battle the series' resident studio snob; TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe helped Carrie Browstein maneuver a blind date; and Jello Biafra awoke from a coma to find himself in present-day yuppie hell. The latest rock star to show up in IFC's bizarro hipster world is Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme, who plays himself with a twist: He's actually Brownstein's gay brother and he's bringing his new boyfriend (comedian Nick Swardson) home to meet her. Unfortunately for Brownstein and Fred Armisen, Homme is a "disappointing gay," in that he's a Jägermeister-loving bro who makes a complete mess of their house when he isn't frequenting ESPN Zones.

  • Marissa Nadler 'Drive' Video July Galaxie 500 Naomi Yang

    Marissa Nadler Laments the Artist's Struggle in Her 'Drive' Video

    Marissa Nadler's "Drive" recounts the struggle and self-doubt that comes with trying to scrape up a living as a musician, what with the long hours spent on the road and minor recognition from those people who do bother to show up at your small gigs. When it came time to make a video for the song, the Boston-based singer-songwriter enlisted Galaxie 500 bassist Naomi Yang to direct, and the two bonded over their shared experience.

  • Cloud Nothings RadioBDC acoustic video performance live

    Watch Cloud Nothings Strip Down 'Here and Nowhere Else' Songs

    It comes as no surprise, but Dylan Baldi is way more comfortable with Cloud Nothings' new material than he was a year ago. Last year at SXSW, the Cincinnati group's frotman teased their new album Here and Nowhere Else with an acoustic performance of "Psychic Trauma," a more reserved take than what would end up on the electric LP. Recently, though, Baldi stopped by Boston's RadioBDC for a stripped-down set that brings a lot of the record's fire, even without the added distortion, mainly through his rough-around-the-edges vocals. He may not seem too relaxed performing alone in a brightly lit office as opposed to a club with the rest of the band, but Baldi really delivers. Check out his renditions of "I'm Not Part of Me," "Psychic Trauma," and "Now Here In" and see for yourself. 

  • Twin Shadow 'To the Top' Song stream single

    Hear Twin Shadow's Stadium-Sized Synth-Pop Anthem 'To the Top'

    If your Tuesday need a pick-me-up song, the kind that makes you feel ready to take on all comers and soar to greater heights, allow us to share with you Twin Shadow's "To the Top." It's the kind of anthemic synth groove that would've been at home in any decade from the '80s on, perfect for a film trailer or a sports montage at the ESPYs. Project mastermind George Lewis Jr. explained the inspiration behind the track in somewhat abstract terms:What is it when you realize that someone isn't right for you? Or when you find that you do not and can not posses someone entirely? You want someone so bad and it feels like hell. It's not like the first time, once loved love evolves, and you no longer have as much control, and it frustrates you.

  • Mac DeMarco Video Game Squish'Em

    Help Mac DeMarco Kill Roaches in 'Squish'Em' Video Game

    Even a "slacker with the heart of gold" can have a roach problem. Well, actually, Salad Days singer-songwriter Mac DeMarco needs your help with his insect infestation in the frustrating new video game Squish'Em, courtesy of Subbacultcha. The concept is simple: Pick your brand of cigarettes from a choice of Marlboro, Viceroy, and Lucky Strike, then stub your butt on as many bugs as you can in 15 seconds. It's much more of a pain in the ass than it sounds, but we're willing to forgive DeMarco because we like his new album and respect the fact that he brought his mom onstage at his recent record release show. Once you get bored playing Squish'Em, you can always try your hand at Future's "Move That Doh" game, in which you drive around picking up cash for a drug dealer. Wholesome!Play the game here.
