Yuck Premiere Video Alongside Tour Updates


U.K. band Yuck has updated their touring schedule, alongside dropping a new NSFW (and kind of creepy) music video to accompany the song “Shook Down.”

The band just wrapped up playing the Pitchfork Music Festival, along with several other show dates around the midwest region of the country. The band will be touring throughout July.

“All Shook Down” is a very soothing and peaceful song which makes the contrast with the music video much more creepy. Check it out right here

7/28: Cellar Door, Visalia, CA *

7/29: Casbah, San Diego, CA *

7/30: Troubadour, Los Angeles, CA *

Active Child Release Music Video, Tour with White Lies


Los Angeles-based artist Active Child released their new music video via Pitchfork for their new single “I’m In Your Church at Night”. The clip, directed by Petro Papahadjopoulos, has the craziest aesthetic ever: think pastry chefs cooking in the middle of a snowstorm.

New Collisions’ Debut Video

Boston’s New Collisions are (finally) releasing their first music video off of their lauded album The Optimist, with the track “Dying Alone.”

The band, which have already toured with Blondie and the B-52’s, filmed the video in a pretty fascinating way.

The group took seven days to film on some of the most popular spots in New York City, which in itself is not too unique. However, the group played their song verrry slooowly, so that when the tape was sped up, it looks like they are playing normally while everyone around them is at warp speed.

Check it.
