French joins Nemo Hoes for the latest episode of GGN.
In part 3 of his sit down with HKTV, Face ponders why white artists such as Justins Timberlake & Beiber are still doing numbers but their Black counterparts are not, talks about a troubling statement he heard an executive at an unnamed music channel make and laments the lack of substantial content in today’s music.
The man formerly known as Run DMT follows up one of the best records of 2011 with an immersive collection of stellar throwback psych-pop jams created under his latest guise/questionable drug pun, Salvia Plath. This thing ranges from lovely pastoral folk to sunny, harmony-drenched ’60s pop to much darker, subtly demented psychedelia; “House of Leaves” crosses paths with all three. Video directed by Sasha Desree + Renee Clark. The Bardo Story is out in July on Weird World.
Considering how cinematic their album teaser was, anything short of a sci-fi epic for an Empire of the Sun music video would be a disappointment. Thankfully, the Sydney duo doesn’t let us down in their video for “Alive,” the debut single off their sophomore album, Ice On The Dune. Follow Luke Steele and Nick Littlemore as they traverse the most epic of biomes, awakening slumbering future babes along the way. Confused? Just watch it above.

We continue where it left off in the video for first single “Alive.” It features the band and others in a desert-jungle situation, many dressed as wild animals. But between the bawdy costuming and the digital orbs throughout, I am getting non-stop flashbacks to the Lonely Island’s “Space Olympics.” Day made. Check it out below.
