Photo's: You Me At Six live @ The Olympia, March 28th 2010

You Me At Six played a blistering sold out show in Dublin's Olympia Theatre on Sunday night.
Despite suffering from laryngitis, front man Josh Franceschi and the rest of the band brought it full throttle to an ecstatic crowd. Their setlist was made up of some old favourites from Take Off Your Colours but mostly consisted of tracks from their new album Hold Me Down with Safer To Hate Her, Liquid Confidence and the bodacious Underdog receiving ear splitting reactions.
Here are some photo's of the show.

Video: YACHT - The Afterlife

Judesays is responsible for yet again another video from Indie electronic duo YACHT and this time it's for the uber addictive The Afterlife, from their album See Mystery Lights. The video sees both Jona Bechtolt and Claire Evans being immersed in various masses of water as if being cleansed or baptised. From waterfalls to even a paddling pool, it is visually quite a gorgeous and serene video.

YACHT are set to join label mates LCD Soundsystem on their tour of Europe which includes two night in Tripod, Dublin on April 20th/21st.

Video: Hot Chip - I Feel Better

Hot Chip always bring a quirky quality to their video's, but their video to I feel Better takes quirky to the next level (in a good way). Directed by friend and comedian Peter Serafinowicz, the video to I feel Better highlights the ridiculousness of reality TV shows such as the X Factor in a fantastical story of a boy band as Hot Chip.
Humorous, strange and slightly insane at times but marvellously entertaining and worth 3 and half minutes of your time.

Video: Foals 'Spanish Sahara'

After revealing details of their forthcoming second album last week, Foals also treated fans to the first play of their new single Spanish Sahara on Zane Lowes show on BBC Radio 1 on Monday.

To accompany their welcome return to form, the stunningly shot video to
Spanish Sahara was shot by Dave Ma, who is no stranger when it comes to directorial duties on Foals video's and more recently he directed the gorgeous video for The Horrors A Whole New Way.

It's six and a half minutes of beautiful, ice ridden landscapes surrounding a new invigorated sounding Foals and both video and song build heroically around Yannis Philippakis' almost lonesome vocal. Total Life Forever is the new album and it's released here on May 7th on Transgressive Records.
