Don’t Go Gentle: A Film About IDLES checks out the band from their own perspective and from the perspective of their fans. The clip that we’re debuting today zooms in on a fan named Connie, who talks about seeing the band for the first time.The Worldwide VOD release date for the film is Aug 6th and the DVD/Bluray release date is August 20th. But, you can check out the clip below, right now.

Today, we are pleased to debut the new video by Janet Labelle.Labelle walks the line between classic summer of love am goodness and modern garage rock tuneage (think Carol King meets Dum Dum Girls). For her new record, Labelle recorded almost every instrument and crafted an abstract piece- On “Suddenly,” there are traces of flowers-in-your-hair, but that sunny image is pulled into the modern world. It’s a cool jam. Also, did we mention that she used to play with Jimmy Destri of blondie? That’s cool, too!you can check out the video for “Suddenly” below, right now!

Today, we are extrmeely psyched to debut the new video by J.D. Pinkus of The Butthole Surfers and, more recently, The Melvins! On August 20, Pinkus will release his new banjo album, Fungus Shui. While the album is firmly rooted in the sounds of back country Appalachia, in true Pinkus style, that ye olde instrument is warped into psychedeliac, and oft sinister, fields. For instance, in the video for “Woke Up Dead,” Pinkus laments about facing the end while dismembered hands, butterflies, and abstract heads. Just watch it. Pinkus spoke about the tune: “A lotta folks sing about wakin up with the blues. I took it a step further with a lil’ country blues jam called ‘Woke Up Dead’.” Producer Josh Bishop added: “Maxwell Sabastian captured that thing that goes on forever, that thing there are no words for… His interpretation is a beautiful celebration of this thing. I’m so very grateful for his mind and talents!” Yiu can pick up the album at Shimmy Disc and you can watch the video below, right now!
