Arrivals: Two Door Cinema Club – Sleep Alone

Seem like these Northern Ireland’s poprockers, Two Door Cinema Club aren’t trying too hard to shake off the Phoenix comparisons that cursed, at least to me, their debut album. But their new single Sleep Alone sounds like a step towards mainstream. A polished, The Killers-style synth laced poprock track, but young and catchy nonetheless. A cut above the rest of the fellow chart contemporaries.

Arrivals: Tame Impala – Apocalypse Dreams & That’s All For Everyone (Fleetwood Mac cover)

The Aussie psychedelic rockers have just announced their second album, Lonerism, the follow up to the fantastic debut Innerspeaker. The wait has been long and we’ll have to wait for another few months till October, when the album will drop.

To ease the wait the hungry Impala fans are treated to another track from the long haired tamers. That’s All For Everyone is band’s contribution to the British-American monsters of 70’s soft rock, Fleetwood Mac, alongside such artists as Antony Hegardy, Lykke Li, MGMT, Marianne Faithfull and Washed Out.

Video Round-up: Justice, Lana Del Rey, Madonna, Sigur Ros

Justice invent new game for New lands. Sadly their videos are more interesting than their music. Visually it’s Scott Pilgrim vs The World meets Tron with handful of nods to science fiction classics.

Lana Del Rey still keeps us in the sixties. It’s Istagram filtered lesbian love story this time.

Madge chose my favorite song from otherwide dreadful MDNA for her new sings. And it’s only logical cos it’s proper summertime radio hit. The video, shot in Venice, shows Ciccone driving around the city in a cabriolet collecting trophies (ridiculously good looking and stylish people).

Sigur Ros have released yet another video for a song from their latest album, the quiet masterpiece Valtari as a part of Valtari Mystery Film Experiment series. The images of caged animals interwoven with shots of architecture, industrials buildings and machinery send a simple, yet powerful message.
