Best EP of 2010?

So far, at least. Grouper's split release with Roy Montgomery, of which her part is the stunning Vessel EP, is a masterpiece. The other day I came across the official video for "Hold The Way", the third track of her EP. Directed by Weston Currie, it begins with a short version of the first track, "Hollow Press", overlaid with a distorted recording of some speech, before the song begins for real. Extremely dark, it fits the music perfectly. Enjoy:


Fleet Foxes: Un concert a emporter

The Fleet Foxes play Sun Giant and Blue Ridge Mountains in an abandoned wing of the Grand Palais, Paris. Recorded in May 2008.

Slightly dodgy camera-work (did the cameraman really need to stand so close to them?) made up for by the music itself.


[NSFW] Nudity

A while ago, a friend posted a link to Girl Dance's "Baby, Baby, Baby" on Facebook and it got me in a narky mood. I really didn't like the video, which simply consists of women walking a kind of naked relay race while the lyrics of the song flash up, word by word, inside black strips censoring their nudity. The music is similarly vapid.

Tonight, however, I came across another music video that revolves around doing fun things with "censor strips". I like it, it made me laugh, so here it is:
