So as i procrastinate my epic coachella youtube binge post, i would like you to examine the new music video from the oakland band Saything. They are one of the most solid rock bands I have seen around here and definitely have some of the grooviest math indie funk jams around. Their new album; which was recorded during their recent national tour, has just finished being mastered, so expect to hear more of them soon. For now: watch the video
it seems like everyone around is in that video, and if i hadnt been in at coachella id of been in there with a stupid look on my face im sure.

Its been a cold few days, and a generally freezing 2010 so far. so it only makes sense that ive had an album done by the man Ben Frost on repeat.
this is some brilliant work. Tim Hecker with more movement, and more brood. Excellent production, and its fucking heavy. I like his ghostbuster references as well. Also: anything named By The Throat has to be good.
listen to it here at his bandcamp
for once there is alot of good vibes around here.
Filed under: ARTFAG, Brookyln, lols, music, Oakland, Uncategorized | Tags: Clytem Scanning, Fever Ray, Lois Iron, maybe ill get off my ass, Paris, Planning To Rock, update soon
so ive been traveling everywhere, going to update tomorrow more tomorrow. Saw warpaiint in LA, Julianna Barwick and Peaches in NY. shmooozed and boozed and boozed some more, and now I want to live in new york. pretty bad. but we shall see how that goes. every time im in new york I get the aforementioned LCD soundsystem song stuck in my head, if its good or bad. And now after it all with a brief Hiatus in oakland to see Grand Lake (whose EP i just recorded just came out, with full length in 2010), Man/Miracle, and the brilliant band id never heard of called Grandchildren from philadelphia. alas, no video. but good times with good friends. NOW im stuck 3 hours north of the bay area seeking solace and eating alot of food. I crave nightlife right now. I crave being productive.
and with cravings on my mind, I leave you with my newest obsession. Clytem Scanning from paris is very planning to rock ala fever ray styles that are so en vogue, but her voice is incredible, and its all just so perfectly put together; combined with the vibe that her myspace puts off and her artwork (she quite awesome collage if your into that)
its just nothing but good. Expect her to get quite big. I know it.
myspace link again here: http://www.myspace.com/missclytemscanning
all three tracks are stunning, listen to them all!
