Last week, Atlanta-based punk rockers Black Lips debuted the video for their new single “Modern Art” on Pitchfork TV. The video, which was directed by occult expert and Kenneth Anger protege Brian Butler, is in a word… strange. I imagine it’s the sort of video that would blow your mind if you smoked before watching it, but without that aid it is just very strange. Anyways, don’t take our word for it, watch the video and let us know what you think the comments section down below.
In a mix between VH1’s Storytellers and La Blogotheque, The Guest Apartment keeps things on a simpler side, much like its name. Miniature Tigers are one of the latest group to get the feature’s treatment, playing a miniature set comprised of a single guitar, plenty of harmonies, and the majority of the band taking up percussive roles. Tambourines tap, shakers shake, and the band talks about the creative process for songs they perform from their latest album, Fortress (Modern Art). You wouldn’t know it from these live renditions, but expect Fortress to exhibit some darker vibes. The band mentions gearing up to record by watching “The Shining” in a converted woodland 19th century church. Sound familiar? That’s because bands from Beach House to the B-52’s have shared the same recording space, not that you should expect the same output from this band.
