New Music Video: "Unreasonable Rider" - Fine Jewelers

The creative pairing of Matt Korvette (Pissed Jeans) & DP Helmer, a.k.a. Fine Jewelers, recently dropped its debut EP Braindance Through The Midnight D - Beat via BANK Records. “Unreasonable Rider” dispenses noise-laced, ultra-pulsating beats as distorted roaring vocals reign down over the top. Unrelenting intensity tips the techno scales the limits. Its video, which stars and is directed by Hackey Garbáge, is a lavish, humorous display, whose calm demeanor is in direct contrast to the track's sonic aggression.

   

Plastic Weather's New Music Video

Plastic Weather just dropped a music video for their song "Doppelgänger." Filmed entirely on an iPhone, the video is fast and chaotic. It shows the members wandering around the Enchanted Forest theme park, wearing a variety of crazy, menacing, ridiculous masks. It’s enchantingly creepy. If Alice in Wonderland was a synth-based musical, it would look a lot like this music video. The goofy, gothic aesthetic fits the mood of the song quite well. As the band dances around the park, their playfulness not only highlights the chemistry the members have with each other, but with their audience as well. Watching them makes you feel like you’re one of the gang, in on whatever prank it is they’re playing. Give it a watch below!

Buzz Alert: Sloppy Jane tours the south + plays SXSW 2019

Brooklyn collective Sloppy Jane is slowly but inexorably building a growing fanbase through a double-punch of theatrical post-punk delivered through a live performance that caters to widespread voyeuristic inclinations. At their shows you can expect an atmosphere reminiscent of pagan rituals, where noisy guitars, screaming voices, twisted lyrics and naked bodies concoct a performance that's provocative at every level. 2018 album Willow sounds like a theatrical post-punk/DIY opera and - allegedly - tells the story of a “girl who existed inside of a strip club in Inglewood, who ran away to the desert to hustle pool with a lion, and who burned herself alive for [our] freedom.” It’s a powerful record filled with odd tracks that develop in unexpected sonic and vocal directions, without ever sounding disjointed or randomly assembled. Its manic energy well represents a band whose most noteworthy strength resides in a live show that is absolutely impossible to ignore. The band recently announced a short tour in the South and their participation in the 2019 SXSW Festival
