Clinic Live In Session

2 06 2008

Here’s a couple of videos featuring the marvellous Clinic in session at the spacious studios for 89.3 The Current. They perform two of my favourite songs from their current album, ‘Do It’ – them being Emotions and Shopping Bag. They sound pretty much as you’d expect but that’s the make of a great band, I think. Most of my favourite bands have a very distinctive sound – many of them, such as Stereolab, Clinic, The Fall, New Order, etc. are often accused of only having one tune. But if it’s a fucking great tune, I don’t really care.





Daedelus – Make It So

1 06 2008

Here’s the new video for Daedelus’ ‘Make It So’ from their new album, ‘Love To Make Music To’. This track features the vocal talents of Michael Johnson and the video is quite a pop art treat. The album is a bit of a hit and miss affair, to be honest, though the high points make up for the more rubbish moments.

Note: I am presuming this is an official video as it is good enough to be, though the fact that the person who has posted it’s only other video is titled ‘Kenny vs Spenny Farting Competition’ makes me slightly dubious…

Sunset Rubdown – You Go On Ahead

29 05 2008

As excitement mounts around the release of the forthcoming, Wolf Parade album, ‘At Mount Zoomer’, here’s a brand new Spencer Krug song in the guise of Sunset Rubdown. It’s tentatively titled ‘You Go On Ahead’ but Krug explains that it could also be called, ‘Trumpet Trumpet Toot Two’, being as it is a sequel to ‘Trumpet Trumpet Toot Toot’ from his ‘Random Spirit Lover’ album. Quality stuff…





We Are Wolves – Upstairs in Whelans

28 05 2008

I went to see We Are Wolves last night Upstairs in Whelans. There wasn’t a huge turnout for them but it was a bit of a miserable summer Tuesday night. They took to the stage in bizarre inexplicable costumes, though they were shed by about the fourth number. Their sound is a synth-heavy sleaze attack, not unlike a punk-influenced Add N To (X). Melodies are few on the ground but energy levels are rather high. Their energy is actually rather infectious and it was entertaining enough. Unfortunately, the band suffer due to the fact that they’ve pretty much forgotten to write any songs. As my friend pointed out to me during the gig, their songs are just middle eights. They’re pretty great middle eights, to be fair, but they don’t have any verses or choruses which is a bit of a shame because if they managed to write choruses as good as their middle eights they could be a very good band. Above, you can see an interview with the band for Watchmojo.com
