Wild Beasts, EMA Live Show Review

October 9th, 2011 – Doug Fir Lounge, Portland OR EMA When EMA and her backing band took the stage at the Doug Fir lounge Sunday night, the first thing I noticed was the word “TRUE” emblazoned across the front of the eponymous singer/guitarist’s shirt. Her outfit–black nylon leggings, black jacket (didn’t last long), white t-shirt—wasn’t...Read...

Is Tropical – “The Greeks” Music Video

Is Tropical blends old school cartoon and video game with real life in this video where boys will be boys. The headshots are okay because it’s animated violence, kids, and fake chemistry sets with briefcases full of money and boxes labeled with “drogue” are just fine, too! All in all, an extremely playful video with...Read...

Errors – “Magna Encarta” Music Video

Glasgow, Scotland’s Errors roam through all landscapes — terrestrial, aquatic, otherworldly, rave-y — in this video for “Magna Encarta”, sometimes with a chicken as their prime focus, and sometimes not. All landscapes become intertwined with one another throughout the course of the video, however, with the chicken remaining the only constant. Perhaps there is a...Read...

Wild Beasts – “Albatross” Music Video

Hopefully this isn’t ridiculous music journalism, but I just want to take a quote the YouTube’s ever-so-painful-to-read-comments to sum up this video: “Katy Perry lookalike + black swan vibe + great song + moustache = “win” Though I wouldn’t personally describe this video as such, it certainly captures some highlights. An Aronofsky Black Swan vibe...Read...

Girls Names – “Bury Me” Music Video

We had previously interviewed the drummer of Dignan Porch, Philippa Bloomfield, about her album cover design for the band’s album, Tendrils. Here, in this video for Girls Names’ “Bury Me,” Bloomfield flexes her video-crafting muscles by editing together a a wonky mixture of live video and projection, as possibly run through filter after filter, copy...Read...

Yuck – Self-Titled Album Review

Underneath all the dingy guitars, waves of static, and unavoidable comparisons to ’90s indie rock bands like Sonic Youth and Pavement, the self-titled, debut album from Yuck offers the simple beauty of an even earlier era when rock was made to be overtly fun. The swirling and distorted sounds of opener “Get Away” and the...Read...
