Arcade Fire – We Used to Wait (Interactive Video)

Sep 2nd, 2010 : by :: Tags: ,

This day and age music videos have lost their heft and gravitas.  Few big name pop artists tap genuine creative and artistic talent for their music videos.  This is an exception, that proves the rule.  Arcade Fire has teamed up with some folks from Google to create this very powerful interactive video for the song “We Used to Wait” (one of my personal favorites off their new record The Suburbs).  You type in the address of the childhood home you grew up in and the application syncs up pre-recorded images and video with that of video of your childhood neighborhood.  I was very moved by both the creative ambition and awareness that Arcade Fire has regarding their own music.  Not to mention it was odd hearing the haunting tune mashed up with images of my old hometown of Abilene, Texas.  Check out the video here.

Slandercat – Blood Of A Broom Tree EP

Sep 1st, 2010 : by :: Tags: , ,

It’s an electronic world out there my friends. Feel free to quote me on that. And it’s tough to find an electronic artist worth shedding light on in such a world as this. Slandercat, however, has an extremely organic feel that my cochleas find very refreshing. Electronic? Yes, but not in the ever popular beach-pop, chill-wave, chill-pop, beach-wave way that, quite frankly, I’ve had almost all that I can take of. Pick up their EP Blood of a Broom Tree for free on bandcamp.

Lucinda Black Bear :: Percival

Aug 31st, 2010 : by :: Tags:

It’s been awhile since our last folk post, so here’s Lucinda Black Bear. Their latest song “Percival” is far from an amateur attempt at a well structured folk song, complete with strings and well placed harmonizing. Look for their next LP in November, and if you crave more of their tuneage, you can preview some tracks off their first album Capo My Heart And Other Bear Songs streaming on their website.

Here on Newdust, we’re no strangers to Hypermagic‘s blissful and surreal, ambient, downtempo tracks. This guy hasn’t released anything I haven’t liked, and his latest EP Hey Hey Sunshine is no exception. Here’s a video for the title track, along with track 2, “Red Lion.”

Long Distance Analog – Plecked Medium

Aug 29th, 2010 : by :: Tags: ,

So I never would have thought I’d come to say this, but I happened to listen to a lot of disco and nu-disco stuff this Summer. And to like it, actually. To like it a lot. Among quite a bunch of good things, I had a chance to check out the not-so-newcomers Long Distance Analog. Hailing from “somewhere between Boston and Detroit, Massachusetts” according to their myspace, they have released their first EP, “Plecked Medium”, through the well-named Mullet Records label, back in 2009. They have been going pretty much unnoticed ever since, which doesn’t do them any justice, as every single one of their tracks shows undeniable mastery and creativity, leading to a signature clean-cut sound.

“Plecked Medium” is, of course, one of them : impeccable drums and delightful electronic melodies paired with an aerial voice : there are times when a little disco feels just right, indeed. Check out their myspace for more.
