“But It’s So”
From Killer Pimp:
Soundpool is a 5-piece band from NYC whose third album is their dive into uncharted realms of shoegaze-disco. Ulrich Schnauss calls them the “greatest f-n band in the world.”
The track is off Soundpool’s upcoming album Mirrors In Your Eyes, due early this year. The 7-inch single with B-side “Makes No Sense” is out January 26.
[“Final Breath”] closes the band’s new album What We All Come To Need, released by Southern Lord Records in late October. This track in particular breaks new ground for PELICAN, as the band’s first song to feature vocals! With video direction by Matt Santoro, known for his gorgeous and otherworldly conceptual work, the song comes to life as an entirely new entity within the video.”
“No You Don’t”
“This Islands video directed by Derrick “Pinky” Beckles of TV Carnage with Michael Cera tripping on acid is pretty great,” quoth the publicist.
Chicago Underground Duo

“Let There Be Horns”
From RDJ2’s publicist:
RJD2 is pleased to present the first video for his new, so-close-you-can-taste-it release, The Colossus, out 1/19 on RJ’s Electrical Connections. The video for “Let There Be Horns,” the opening track off the new record, documents the life of a Minotaur in modern times. Directed by Thom Glunt, it’s a fish out of water story we can all relate to.
