On January 29, the Ipecac label is releasing Tomahawk‘s Oddfellows. “Stone Letter” is the LP’s first single, and its video was directed by Vincent Forcier. Watch the clip below, and catch the quartet—Duane Denison (Jesus Lizard), Mike Patton (Faith No More), John Stanier (Battles, Helmet) and Trevor Dunn (Melvins)—on tour starting February 12 in Seattle.
Frightened Rabbit’s new album, Pedestrian Verse, is out February 5 via Canvasback/Atlantic. Filmmakers/directors Hand Held Cine Club made a film about a recent tour the band did. Says frontman Scott Hutchison, “It had been an ambition of mine since I started the band to take to Scotland’s outposts to play shows. The opportunity took its time to arise, so when it did, it felt silly not to document the whole thing in some way. We all felt that the country itself should be the lead in this film, and Scotland did not disappoint. Wonderful people, breathtaking scenery and damn good shows. I feel lucky to have this film to remember it by.” Watch it below.
Tegan And Sara‘s seventh studio album, Heartthrob, is out January 29 via Warner Bros. The dynamic duo just got done promoting the 10-track LP, opening for the Killers as well as playing some headlining dates. Watch the video for Heartthrob track “Closer” below.
“Baby” is off Our House On The Hill (Woodsist), the second album from the Babies. The Brooklyn band just wrapped up a month-long tour in support of the dozen-track LP, which was produced by Rob Barbato (the Fall, Cass McCombs). Watch the Timothy Fiore-directed video for “Baby” below, and check out our Babies feature in the current issue of MAGNET.
We thought this Chris Curtis-directed video for “Every Year So Different” by Cornershop featuring TRWBADOR was an appropriate choice for the Christmas installment of Film At 11. Says Curtis of the clip, “The song inspired me to go down a rabbit hole of bygone bucolic happenings and into the inner mind of a cuckoo-clock jukebox. Clockwork feline hosts and floating bears fill a festive snow-globe world inspired by the rosy nostalgia of ’50s and ’60s American greetings cards. Scratching back and forth, the video serves up a wistful and warm classic.” Amen, brother. Happy holidays!
