Nick’s Picks: The Stone Foxes “Locomotion”

What a great video!

It’s a classic underdog come-from-behind in-your-dreams victory of band nerds against basketball jocks that reminded me waaaaay too much of my college basketball experience. Exceptional production on a simple concept really brings this track to life.

The track itself is a straight-forward rocking single. Good driving music, or get pumped up first thing in the morning music.

The video follows the exploits of the band as they challenge a group of jocks to street basketball … and promptly get their asses wupped. Lots of great fun moments and a well-plotted storyline.

Basketball, man.

SBTRKT: ‘Look Away’

Master of the remix, SBTRKT, is back with a new album.

One of the stand out tracks on Wonder Where We Land is ‘Look Away’ and guest vocalist Caroline Polachek’s performance is chill inducing. The song has an accompanying video that is as intriguing as the song itself and also happens to be interactive. It does require access to your computer’s web cam and is made to work best with Google Chrome (sorry, it won’t work on a mobile device, though you can see some of the video).

It’s an absolutely haunting song, in the most wonderful way.

There isn’t much to say about the video as it’s something you need to see rather than read about.

(*Hint- move around when you watch it and it’s more interesting).

Nick’s Picks: K.Flay /Life As A Dog/

Holy shit Kristine.

So, K.Flay is back in a big way with her new album Life As A Dog. This is such an awesome way to kick off a post-label career.

The tracks are tight and mean and smart and painful. Each sounds absolutely gorgeous. Delightful ear candy. And the lyrics are honest. K.Flay still struggles with too much partying and guilt about love and life. But damn she makes beautiful music.

What the fuck do we label this? Post-hip-hop indie-drum-and-bass-trance-core?

Or just good fucking music.
