Indie rockers Rogue Wave’s new album Nightingale Floors was released yesterday. No video yet but Vagrant, their label, was generous enough to drop the audio stream for their song “College” from the aforementioned album. I like it. Pretty text book indie rock, but it’s good stuff!
Portugal. The Man is a band from Portland that has been doing pretty damned well for themselves since their signing to Atlantic Records in 2010. They even worked with Danger Mouse on Evil Friends, their album that dropped only yesterday. Enjoy!
New Megadeth? Yes please. This isn’t a video per se, but it was put out by Megadeth TV. Maybe they’re too busy with Gigantour to shoot one!
Self proclaimed electronic soul duo Quadron put out their sophomore album this year called Avalanche. Coco O is lookin pretty good these days! Here’s their single “Hey Love.”
Amanda Blank is raunchy… I won’t lie. But she’s fresh! She only put out 1 LP in 2009 and doesn’t seem to be making plans for another release. Nonetheless, she’s worked with the likes of Steve Aoki, Spank Rock, Major Lazer and Sizzla just to name a few. This is the first single from her album I Love You entitled “Might Like You Better.”
Queens of the Stone Age was often mistaken for a Dave Grohl side project until he was only seen in one video but they kept kicking. Following the art rock tradition, these cats always put out solid stuff. Josh Homme is a beast. Here’s their latest!
Meshuggah has been a mainstay in the metal scene for a long time. Their almost completely amelodic and brutal brand of prog metal has yet to be duplicated though many have tried. Here’s the most epic video I’ve seen this year, entitled “I Am Colossus.”
