Crystal Castles – “Plague”

posted on Sep.24, 2012

Take a look at the unsettling new video for Crystal Castles latest song “Plague”, which was released a few months ago. As is their way, the band is being mysterious about their latest album but it’s set for release in November. “Wrath of God”, the second single from their third album, is set to be released next week. You can see a live performance of that song here.


Saint Motel – 1997

posted on Sep.19, 2012

 

At first listen to their song “1997,” Saint Motel, in the beginning, reminded me of The Killers, and then I didn’t know what they reminded me of. But the song is quite catchy and will probably be stuck in my head (and now yours) for the next week or so. I am perfectly okay with this. The LA quad’s music video for 1997 for just came out about a month ago, check it out here and visit their website at http://www.saintmotel.com/!

Album Review: Amanda Palmer and the Grand Theft Orchestra – Theatre Is Evil

posted on Sep.15, 2012

Amanda Palmer and the Grand Theft OrchestraAmanda Palmer.
“Theatre is Evil”
Release Number: 3rd

Hailing From: New York City, New York
Genre: Caberet Rock
Label: 8 ft. Records

What can I say about Amanda Palmer? You know how pop stars today are described as edgy because they got a tattoo, put out a controversial album, or did something unexpected? Well, if that’s true then, Palmer is over the cliff. If other artists kiss girls on stage, she kisses fondles them and then ties them up and gags them (yes, this actually happened). She made a name for herself as one half of the punk cabaret duo, the Dresden Dolls, singing about rape and back-alley abortions. All of these things, combined with her cabaret style is what makes her so unique and exciting.
