New music videos and songs.

No Joy
No Joy

Chvrches, “Lies”

Hey folks, it’s a video from Glasgow’s Chvrches, giving some visual edge to one of the best songs from their album The Bones of What We Believe. Check it out:


Dead Obies, “Montréal $ud”

Local rappers Dead Obies are on the cusp of releasing their album Montréal $ud (Nov. 12, on Bonsound), which promises to shake up the local hip hop scene. Their launch party is happening at Cabaret du Mile End (5240 Parc) on Wednesday, Nov. 13, 9 p.m., for free. Watch this video, directed by Martin C. Pariseau.


Chevalier Avant Garde, “Killing Fields”

Dimitri and Filip from Montreal’s Chevalier Avant Garde recently said their music is inspired by. Have a look at their VHS-manipulating buddy Rob Feulner’s video for a track of their LP Resurrection Machine, made up of clips from the original Terminator.

No Joy, “Second Spine”

And they’re back! Yeah, Montreal’s shoegaze gals No Joy released their Wait to Pleasure record as recently as April and they’ve already released a follow-up EP, Pastel and Pass Out, also on Mexican Summer.


Arcade Fire, “Afterlife”

And just because these guys don’t get enough exposure (Reflektor is #1 on the U.S. charts for christ’s sake), check out this live music video, directed by Spike Jonze, starring Greta Gerwig and performed at the top of last weekend’s YouTube Music Awards.
