Video: Foals "Miami"

The singles are coming out thick and fast from Foals second record Total Life Forever, with Miami being the third track to be released. It's a funky one with a fantastic video directed by Dave Ma, that slightly reminds me of Aphex Twin's Windowlicker and all it's weirdness. Miami is certainly a step away from Foals video's gone past and features transsexuals and body builders having a bit of a scrap! I don't need to say much more than have a look.

A serious contender for album of 2010, Total Life Forever is out now!

Photo's: Graham Day & The Gaolers live @ The Retro Revival Club

For those of you in attendance at the Graham Day & The Gaolers gig in Sweeney's (formerly Le Cirk) you will certainly agree that it was a fantastic performance. Graham Day is somewhat of a legend when it comes to the garage rock scene and received a hero's welcome when he took to the stage on Saturday night. He even managed to play three Prisoners songs much to the delight of the animate crowd. Here are some snap shots I took on the night with more of the excellent support bands The Revellions & The Bloody Shanks to follow...

Video: The Fall "Bury! PTS 2+4"

From their 28th studio album Your Future Our Clutter is the brand new video to The Fall's Bury! PTS 2+4. It's pretty safe to say that this is a cracking tune and the video is as equally slick.
It was directed by ThirtyTwo who previous duties have included videos from Elbow and Franz Ferdinand.

Video Liars "The Overachievers".

This is easily one of my favourite tracks on Sisterworld and keeping with tradition of Liars videos gone past, The Overachievers is no less menacing and eerie. Crazed man on a treadmill, check. A bag hanging from the ceiling dripping of blood, check. It keeps in with the sinister theme and the video was directed by the bands own Aaron Hemphill.

Sisterworld is out now on Mute Records and The Overachievers is released on 12" vinyl on May 23rd.

Video: Holy Fuck "Latin America".

Freshly squeezed from the bands second album Latin, due on the shelves this Friday (May 7th), Holy Fuck return with Latin America as their first hint of what to expect from their new material.
The video to accompany lends a nostalgic note and also becomes some sort of video blog of the bands live shows, mish mashed together with random scenery and general everyday moments.

It works however and it was directed beautifully by Yoonha Park who has previously worked with Holy Fuck and has directed for A Place To Bury Strangers on their track The Falling Sun.
