School of Seven Bells
Silkken Laumann, “Dubai, Bye Baby, Dubai”
It’s quiet times for the Acorn, but the band’s frontman Rolf Klausener and drummer Pat Johnson released a new record as Silkken Laumann on Jan. 1. This is the first of eight songs on that record, Not Forever Enough.
Pixies, “Blue Eyed Hexe”
The Pixies just released the follow-up to September’s EP1, entitled (wait for it) EP2. Produced by Gil Norton, with artwork by the band’s longtime designer Vaughan Oliver, the four-song record is being sold for $4 (digital) to $60 (vinyl and hoodie). Dig this video for the lead track, directed by Mount Emult.
Snoop Lion, “Get Away”
Snoop’s now going by “Snoopzilla” for his Dâm-Funk collab, but last year’s reggae tourism with Major Lazer has produced a new video, directed by Ashten “Whoopi” Winger and animated by Mykola Dosenko.
Riff Raff, “Suckas Askin Questions”
Texas rapper and YouTube bro Riff Raff recently released a single, “How to Be the Man,” on Mad Decent, which will soon release his LP, Neon Icon. Read our interview with him here, and see how much he hates interviews here:
School of Seven Bells, “My Cabal”
This is a video for a song from School of Seven Bells’ 2008 record Alpinisms. The band’s co-founder and guitarist Benjamin Curtis died of cancer this week. RIP.
