The Joy Formidable have a new video for their track"Little Blimp" from the album Wolf's Law. The clip features a view from a fish eye lens camera attached to Ritzy Bryan's guitar. I have seen this gimmick somewhere before but I cannot remember where...probably a bad heavy metal or country music video. Watch below:
Django Django persuaded Vice's Noisey to travel to India to get footage for their new video. The clip for "WOR" was filmed at a carnival in Allahabad India that features something called " The Well Of Death" where motorcycles and cars are driven around a wooden wall. Watch below:
"Broken Record" is the second track to be previewed from the new Little Boots album Nocturnes Listen below:
Little Boots- Broken Record
From the "Say it isn't so" department comes news that Bauhaus frontman Peter Murphy was detained yesterday for both possession of meth and DUI. According to the Glendale News Press Murphy left the scene of an accident and when police stopped him he seemed "very confused." Thinking that the recently announced Bauhaus world tour may be postponed.
