For the first time ever I am posting a video of a song on a yet to be released album. Here is the video for “Scissor” By Liars, off of their album Sisterworld, which will be released March 8th.

I watched all of last Saturday’s Saturday Night Live mostly just to see Them Crooked Vultures perform two songs on the show. I can’t really say the two songs they did were my favorites from their album, but thanks to that show and Hulu there are now some videos of them online that don’t sound bad. Video of them playing “New Fang” under the cut.
I originally wanted to post “Surfing on a Rocket” by Air, but apparently EMI doesn’t allow embedding of videos with music they own in them. Way to hate promotion and exposure of your artists guys.
That’s not to say I don’t love the music of Amon Tobin, because I do. I’ve been a fan of his for quite a long time. Under the cut is the video for “Four Ton Mantis”, off of his album Supermodified. It’s pretty weird and might not be safe for work because there are people creepily hanging around in their underwear in the video.
Ahh!! Sorry about the lack of updates this week. I’m trying to catch up on Lost for next Tuesday and Mass Effect 2 came out this week.
If you asked me what was the best band with a guitar player, the only person left from the original line-up, who liked to wear sleeveless shirts in music videos and with a singer who often would sporadically run off the stage onto audience member’s heads/shoulders, I would HAVE to say Dillinger Escape Plan. Their video for “Panasonic Youth” is under the cut. And yes, some of the guys in the above picture are not in the video. I told you the guitar player with no sleeves was the only original member, remember?
Andy Falkous of Future of the Left, originally of Mclusky, is a great frontman. I’ve always dug the stuff he’s been involved in. So, on that note, this week’s music video of the week is Future of the Left’s “The Hope That House Built”. Their album that this song is from, Travels With Myself and Another, was one of my favorite’s of 2009.
I’ve loved this British band a lot since their last album Empire. This is the first single off of their 2009 album West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum called “Vlad the Impaler”. Noel Fielding, who plays Vince in The Mighty Boosh, plays Vlad the Impaler in the video. How can you not love that?
I must warn you who are going to watch this music video that have never seen it, it is very weird and a little creepy. The song is excellent and is one of my favorites of 2009, but the video is just odd. If it creeps you out too much watching it, at least listen to the song.
There’s a few songs that I can’t put my finger on why the hell they are b-sides. “The Fun Machine Took a Shit and Died” is one of those songs. I don’t really know what song on Era Vulgaris I’d replace it with, but I would find a way to fit it on there. I think the only way to find the studio version of this song is on a 7″ single and the extended edition of Era Vulgaris. This video is a rip someone did of the Over the Years and Through the Woods live CD/DVD. If you don’t have that and are a QOTSA fan you need to get it immediately.
About six years ago if you asked me who my favorite band was I wouldn’t have said The Beatles, I wouldn’t have even said Led Zeppelin, I would’ve said Cave In. While they may not be the GREATEST band of all time, their album Jupiter kind of changed the way I looked at music.
I could only find a couple of ‘official videos’ of their songs. The one I like the best is actually just live video with the song played over it. It’s a great song though.
Cave In split up a while ago and have since reformed and released a new EP. Because the new songs are a great representation of their whole catalog I wanted to include a live video of one of them. Enjoy.
This week’s music video of the week is Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds ” Dig! Lazarus Dig!” from the 2008 album of the same name. If you’ve never heard the song before I’ll warn you, the chorus is quite catchy and infectious.
