Pic of the week! Not entirely sure what’s happening here but it looks like a whole lot of fun. Nat gets a bag full of Volleys and you get a reminder that there’s only three days left to enter and win the big prize.
Upon releasing their most recent album, Valtari, Sigur Ros gave a dozen filmmakers budget and complete freedom to make a video to accompany a song from the album. This was the band’s favourite. Depending on your position it’s either genius or pretentious twaddle. Which kinds of sums up attitudes towards the music as well.
Why not make up your own mind and see them live at California’s biggest music festival?
Last year was Grimes’s year. Seems like the elfin Vancouverite might have been holding a gun to the heads of music journalists. Ensuring her third album, Visions, was included in their year-end lists. But, obviously, that’s not possible. You could receive the chance to see her at California’s biggest music festival.
The brothers Mael. Two complete weirdos that never quite received the level of fame they deserved. They’re still around and will playing at California’s biggest music festival. Here they are playing ‘When I’m With You’ on a French children’s show. Don’t ask us why an adult store is involved. You could win a trip to rediscover them for the first time… again.
The snake-hipped Frenchmen ask an interesting question. Will you ever feel better? Not to be a bummer, but you probably won’t. You can give yourself one chance though. Submit a photo to our competition and you could be flying to California’s biggest music festival to see them live. Then you’ll feel better.
DJ Harvey. Disco freak, host of the infamous Sarcastic Disco parties in LA. You think a guy who takes records this serious isn’t going to things that change your life while you’re on a dancefloor at California’s biggest music festival? You could be the one that finds out.
Hot Chip – ‘I Feel Better’
Well. Hot Chip are absolute weirdos. That was never in doubt. The clip for ‘I Feel Better’ cemented the weirdness. And you could get down with the weirdness (not the sickness, never the sickness) at California’s biggest music festival.
Nobody’s grousing about ol’ Dino Jr having reformed. The music is still vital, J Mascis is still borderline mute and their videos are still tongue in cheek. Like their most recent, starring Henry Rollins and alt comedy heroes James Urbaniak and Maria Bamford. Want to do better than YouTube? You could see them live at California’s biggest music festival.
