Tha Glass Canoe premiere video for "First Ideas"

The wonderfully talented, and I hesitate to agree with the following, psychedelic pop band The Glass Canoe recently premiered their video for "First Ideas" over on My Old Kentucy Blog. We're reposting it here for your visual and aural pleasure.

"First Ideas" is aptly named, being the first single from the group's debut album Chimera. The song is carried across the shoulders of a lullaby-inspired guitar melody before fleshing out with equally wonder-inducing instrumentation and sleepy-eyed vocals. There are two intriguing vocal breaks, the latter leading to the crescendo of the track before fading into bliss. The video, directed by Michael Shainblum, reflects the mood of the song with golden, technicolor, nostalgia inducing landscape.

Video for The War on Drugs’ “Comin’ Through”

Below is a music video for The War on Drugs’ “Comin’ Through” from 2010’s Future Weather EP. It surfaced today (special thanks to PW’s Making Major Moves who brought it to our attention), and was actually posted two months ago. We’re not really sure if it’s the song’s “official” music video because there was no mention of its existence by The War on Drugs or Secretly Canadian, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it was, and Adam Granduciel just didn’t bother telling anyone. (Well, at least we know that he has finished his new album.) Whatevs - enjoy! - The Deli Staff
Update: Heard from The War on Drugs camp that this is NOT the official music video for "Comin' Through", and no permission was asked or given. However, they did seem impressed by the effort so maybe it will be someday. Also expect to hear news about the release of their new album next month!

Useless Keys

Useless Keys mixes quiet blues, psychedelia rock and adds a punctuation mark. Guitar riffs sound like a sirens song and driving drums accentuate sweeping melodies while vocals inaudibly croon. This quartet's most recently released EP "Is the Painting Changing" is available online and at shows.  If you like their song "White Noise", just wait and see what they have in store for you next.  Catch this LA Indie scene staple play their brand of strung out rock at The Satellite with Brother Tuesday, April 26 at 10pm.  Michele McManmon


Photo Recap: The Extraordinaires, Juston Stens and The Get Real Gang & Gold Crowns Show at KFN!

Last Friday night, there were good vibes all around for such a bittersweet evening. The Extaordinaires headlined at Kung Fu Necktie, and it was founding member and bassist Matt Gibson’s last show with the band as an official member. As you may have learned from our interview with Jay Purdy last week HERE, Gibson will be leaving The Extraordinaires to join Man Man for their next extensive tour(s) in support of their upcoming album Life Fantastic. However, there wasn’t any ill will as the rest of the band and Gibson played their hearts out alongside new bassist Adam Ravitz. In fact, it was quite touching to watch Purdy and Gibson’s interaction throughout the evening on stage which culminated in a loving embrace where they were locked shoulder-to-shoulder towards the end of the set as they sang “Warehouse Song” (which was rather fitting, especially for me, because it was probably my first introduction to The Extraordinaires’ music). Helping to celebrate this momentous occasion were former Dr. Dog drummer Juston Stens and The Get Real Gang (who served up a rollicking set and proved that their early studio recordings truly don’t do them justice) and Gold Crowns (featuring members of The Invisible Friends, Dark Horse and The Carousels, and Sweatheart). You can check out the rest of our pics from the evening HERE. (Photos by David Turcotte) - Q.D. Tran
