Devastations Will “Take You Home”

“Take You Home” is just one of the highlights on Yes, U, the latest set from Australia via London and Germany combo Devastations. Here, it gets the timelapse/meaningful lip synch treatment, and it must be the power of the song’s chorus because there’s electricity firing all over this clip.

Get Into a Bloc Party For Free

A free block party sounds pretty rad, we know: All that potato salad, corn on the cob, and hamburgers for nothing? Delicious!

Profile: Bad Veins

Sometimes a band is just so pro, so calculated, so put together that we just want to shit in their mouths (we’re looking at you Fountains of Wayne). In the case of Cincinnati’s Bad Veins, we find their super-slick cinematic pop quite refreshing, adding a bit of class to the festival’s oeuvre. Plus, the Flaming Lips were too

Profile: The Dead Bodies

Drugs, man. Lots of ’em. Or at least that’s what we can infer. Nobody can make music this hallucinogenic with a sober mind. But who knows. Maybe The Dead Bodies are just weird, listen to tons of psyche-rock,

Music Vid: Javelins, “Out On the Sand”

Who’s got the sweet museum hook up, yo? Whoever it is, Javelins lucked out, as their new video for “Out on the Sand” — the first single from their upcoming Heavy Meadows — looks like a glossy documentary on taxidermy; staring a cool band, instead of old creepy dudes. The boys don’t seem to be too thrilled to be surrounded by a

Juiceboxxx: Mega Video Post

Skinny white kids rapping to electro-jamz uploaded to an iPod are hardly a dime a dozen; every city and scene seems to have at least one. But it’s rare that you find one with same kind of unbridled, unabashed, and downright stoopid energy that comes out of the one we call Juiceboxxx. At last year’s Detour Launch
