The Wombats Release New Single

UK’s favorite rockers, The Wombats have been diligently hammering out their sophomore full-length under the tutelage of famed producer Eric Valentine (Queens of the Stone Age, All-American Rejects) for a couple years now.

Now the first single, “TOKYO (Vampires & Wolves)” is ready to be heard. Featuring an intensely dance-centric beat and flavorful synths, the song showcases the Wombats’ evolution musically. Check  out the music video below, in which the band engages in gruesome rock-star behavior, sugarcoated with drugs and booze.

Look for the Wombats’ new album early in 2011, with a tour announcement sure to follow.

Major Lazer’s New Video Is Amazing

null

Major Lazer is kind of different. Maybe the second or third most popular cartoon musician on the planet (Gorrilaz and Dethklok being the other two), he makes even other cartoon seem normal by comparison.

According to Mad Decent, Lazer’s record label, Lazer is a Jamaican commando who fought in the “secret Zombie War of 1984” and lost both arms in combat.

His newest video only gets cooler and way weirder. Born from the song “Perculator” by the artist Cajmere, the remixed version is called “Percumajor.”

Along with a thumping beat and awesome effects, the video shows you all sorts of awesome stuff animated in a very distinct way.

The video has…(in no particular order) dinosaurs getting shot with lasers, a dog in a suit, one of those furry things from Gremlins (and an actual Gremlin). If any (or all…probably all) of those things sound awesome, you can watch the video right here!
