There are just so many wrong things happening in this video for Chappo’s single ‘Hell No’ that it’s hard to know where to begin. They are all super fun to watch but you can probably take a wild guess as to the potential discomfort level just by looking at the thumbnail for the video. It’s potentially NSFW depending on your comfort level with singing boobs.

Here’s another Aussie skate punk band I have started to follow. They’ve got a fun, low-fi and crunch sound that despite the grit goes down smooth on melody. There are some great tracks on their EP that you can grab on iTunes and their full length album ‘Nothing to Do’ was just released last month.

Band: Bleeding Knees Club
Track: Teenage Girls
Taken from: Debut album ‘Nothing To Do’ – Feb 2012

Friends is another ‘newish’ band I have taken an interest in. Based out of Brooklyn, their echoing throwback sound is instantaneously catchy and recognizable in a good way. I am not entirely sure if they have released an EP or feature length but I’d love to know if there is more out there. If you’ve got any more information about the band, please drop some links in the comments.

I am really digging these guys. It’s a little tough to drum up information about them just yet since they are pretty fresh on the scene but I’ve got my ear to the ground for the release of their first album.

“HVN233 – TOY ‘Left Myself Behind’
Directed by Mark Donne
Director of Photography Joe Morris.

TOY is a Korg Delta led five-piece formed in 2010. It consists of Tom Dougall (Vox/Guitars), Dominic O’Dair (Guitars), Maxim Barron (Bass/Vox), Alejandra Diez (Synthesizers/Modulation) and Charlie Salvidge (Drums/Vox). TOY’s musical influences incorporate a wide range of genres including punk, psychedelia, krautrock, post rock to name a few and they explore experimental recording techniques in the studio.

With the majority of 2010 spent writing, TOY played their first show at the Cave Club in Islington earlier this year. Since then the band have played a string of live performances including Field Day and 1234 festivals and have supported bands such as The Horrors and The Pretty Things. Their first single – Left Myself Behind – is out now. “

Anytime I hear a band might be supporting a Radiohead tour (Radiohead being one of my all time favorite bands) well…my ears perk up. And Other Lives is doing just that. The song ‘Tamer Animals’ The song is the title track off of their album under the same name. I highly recommend checking it out.

I really dig the music for this track from Oupa titled ‘It’s Rough’ from the album Wild Love, but oh man I think I am tripping out man. Oh man I am tripping out so hard. AHHHH!

The video was produced by Porcelain Raft

This entire video was hand drawn frame by frame with markers on paper. ‘As simple as it looks’ but I would imagine it was anything but simple.

If you wanna learn more about how it was done you can do that here.

This is the official music video for Kanye West and Jay Z’s recent single ‘No Church in the Wild’. And I gotta say it, despite all the backlash Kanye just keeps putting stuff out there that is impossible not to pay attention to.

It’s a pencil celebration bitches. Everyone have a good time. This fun little retro throwback is the official video for ‘Pencil Revolution’ by SCHRADINOVA, taken from the album ‘India Lima Oscar Victor Echo You’.

I’ll be honest and admit that I don’t know how into the video I am but I do really like the song.
