    Exitmusic Release New Video For The Modern Age

    Exitmusic have kindly shared a new video for their new single “The Modern Age“. The beautiful pastoral and haunting images from director Daniel Ryan fit smoothly with front woman Aleksa Palladino‘s emotionally drenched vocal.

    Of the inspiration for the shoot, Palladino says, “Devon and I spent a few years volunteering at wild life rescue centers and, despite all the best efforts of very knowledgeable and compassionate staff members, sometimes an animal would just die from the shock of being captured. Their bodies would shut down because they knew they were not free. It has always stayed with us.  That’s where we got the idea for the video.”

    Chateau Marmont Releases New Video For Wargames

    Parisian electro-pop trio Chateau Marmont has released a new video and single for “Wargames” off its forthcoming debut LP, The Maze. “Wargames” is a tense song about the impossible love of two beings, forced into separation. Directed by Sam Rixon, the black and white video matches the single’s hurried pace, splicing together live footage of performances from various tours and the beautiful places in between. The clip also captures footage from Chateau Marmont’s North American tour last fall with Revolver, which followed their spring US live debut and well-received sets at SXSW ’11.

    Free Music Friday With Glass Theory And Io Echo

    Well, here we are at the end of another week and on the doorstep of another Free Music Friday. The sad news that musician Bob Welch has died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound crossed our desks yesterday. It seems as if rock’s royalty is disappearing at an alarming rate these days. As much as we would like to pay each one of them our respects and send them on their way from this world with a fitting tribute, we’re beginning to think that this blog could quickly turn in to an obituary section, something none of us wants. So as much as we can we are going to keep mention of death to a bare minimum and get on with music news for the living. This one’s for Bob.
