The Nine Inch Nails live show in 2013 has garnered perhaps even more acclaim than the masterful comeback album Hesitation Marks, a record we ranked among the year’s absolute best. But whereas anybody can stream the album on Spotify or whatever, fans who are broke, geographically isolated, or otherwise indisposed haven’t gotten to witness this Talking Heads-inspired production. Well, today is NIN superfans’ lucky day: The band posted Nine Inch Nails Tension 2013, a full-length concert movie filmed 11/8 at the Staples Center in L.A., online today. It’s not the full set, but 14 songs over 77 minutes is certainly better than nothing. Press play below to live (or relive!) the euphoria.
Even among Scandinavian black metal bands, Watain have a particularly striking, powerful, and original visual aesthetic, so it’s hard to believe they’re only now — on their fifth album — releasing their first video. “Outlaw” is one of the heavier (and better) tracks from the August release The Wild Hunt, and while the video is blurry and grainy as hell (intentionally so), it really does capture the coolest elements of the band’s psycho-fuck style. I didn’t see anything NSFW here, but if you’re not comfortable watching, say, American Horror Story, you might want to avoid this, too. To everyone else, I encourage you to check it out — it’s a really creepy video and an excellent song.
The Walkmen announced their “extreme hiatus” on Black Friday — though, as the extensive Walkmen profile we published today explains, that break was a long time coming — which made last night’s show in Philadelphia at Union Transfer their swan song, at least for now. The setlist was short, sweet, and career-spanning, with 13 songs in total, one for each year since the band formed. Sun Ra Arkestra helped out with horn parts on the first two numbers, and from there on out it was these five guys who’ve given us so much great music playing together one last time. Below, find fan-made video of opener “Red Moon” and a moving two-song encore including “138th Street” and “We’ve Been Had.”
