Singer/songwriter McKenzie Eddy has released a new video for her single “Bees,” which will be featured on her forthcoming release Slow Your Horse Down. Enjoy McKenzie’s poetic singing style over the mellow guitar line from her BluRoc labelmate Sean O’Connell.
Keep up to date with McKenzie Eddy over on her website!
It has been eleven or so years since Primus released a music video. That is, of course, until IFC premiered Primus’ visuals for the single “Tragedy’s a’ Comin’”, which comes off the band’s latest LP Green Naugahyde and features an up-beat sound along with lyrics from Les Claypool that speak of an impending doom.
So, how did Primus go about giving the single the video treatment? Well, the band decided to go the lobster route since a lobster about to be dropped into a boiling pot of water is as clear an example of impending doom as I can think of. After watching the video a few times, I can only hope that Les Claypool incorporates the lobster suit into the band’s live performance! Who’s with me?
Since The Rapture‘s return to the music scene with the release of their latest LP In The Grace Of Your Love, the band’s discography has been on constant rotation here at MFPP. To celebrate our love for The Rapture, we have two treats in store for you!
First is “In Love Divine,” which is a 7 minute track that was included as a bonus single for the Japanese release of In The Grace Of Your Love.” Thanks to SKoA for the track!
Our second treat is the new video The Rapture released for In The Grace Of Your Love‘s opening track “Sail Away.” While “Sail Away” was not a standout track for me on the LP, the video is entertaining enough as frontman Luke Jenner rides around on what appears to be a piece of tinfoil.
Earlier this year, Honus Honus from Man Man, Nicholas Thorburn of Islands, and Joe Plummer of Modest Mouse, joined up to form the supergroup Mister Heavenly, and released their debut LP Out of Love through Sub Pop Records.
For the album’s opener, “Bronx Sniper,” Mister Heavenly created a video featuring a child who loves playing with his Man Wolf figurine. That is until his father spills milk on the toy and it transforms into a highly destructive force that wreaks havoc on the family’s house.

A few months ago, we introduced you to The Parallax View at a time when Tyler Koykas’ musical project was new to the world. Since signing with the Woozy Tribe, TPV has released a number of EPs, all of which show a constant progression in his creation and assemblage of unique sounds.
The Parallax View comes up with a concept, idea, or feeling for a release by making some art. When I last spoke with TPV, he felt that “a lot of people use photos as covers, [which are] pretty plain and the music always ends up pretty plain.” To combat this feeling, he began the creative process for his latest EP, Hip Slop, by taking a photo, rubbing a kitchen cleaner on it, and letting it sit for a few days to see what the final product would be.
Musically, the Hip Slop EP features the simple, tight beats of a hip hop album, combined with the dark, creepy, ambient tones of TPV’s keyboards. The end result is a mix of tracks that give a “full band feel” even though they were created by a single artist.
Also in the works from The Parallax View is an October 13th re-release of the Hip Slop EP, which will come out on a limited run of cassettes, and will most likely include vocals on the original tracks by Bluebird Handwriting, B Side Malone, Vimana Aircraft, Body Cheetah, Rosko Taint, Messed Up Coyote, and Mauve Angeles. Please note that the final choice on the artists to be included on the re-release is still TBD.
Check out the video for “Aging,” which features the vocals of Bluebird Handwriting.
After the success of their bandcamp single “Ffunny Ffrends,” Unknown Mortal Orchestra spread like wildfire through the blogosphere, and released their debut, self-titled effort. What sets UMO apart from the rest is their ability to create simple guitar riffs/melodies, which are jammed out into wonderful psychedelic tracks.
That being said, UMO has released an official video for the single “Little Blu House,” as well as a live performance of “Ffunny Ffrends.” Check out both videos below.
Over the past few years, Aesop Rock, Rob Sonic, and DJ Big Wiz, have performed live together, and even made appearances on each other’s solo albums. In 2011, the trio joined forces to release their debut LP under the Hail Mary Mallon moniker, Are Gonna Eat That?.
“Breakdance Beach” is our favorite single from the LP, and lucky for us, a video has been released! Check it out.

Check out the second sampling of songs from Getting Paid below. In case you missed it, here is the first sampling.
The Flaming Lips have released a video from their collaboration with Lightning Bolt for the single “I Wanna Get High But I Don’t Want Brain Damage.” Aside from the humorous intro message from Lips’ frontman Wayne Coyne, the single is reminiscent of early Ween recordings with its’ gritty vocals.
Roughly four years since her last release, the Icelandic artist Björk has announced that her latest effort Biophilia will be out on September 27th. “Crystalline” is the first single from Biophilia, and it’s video was directed by Michel Gondry. Check it out below ..
From their latest effort Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2, the Beastie Boys have released the action figure filled video for the single “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win,” which features the vocal stylings of Santigold. Here is the Beastie Boys’ disclaimer for the official, full-length, and explicit director’s cut for the video:
“Though no Yeti’s were harmed in the making of this video, please remember, that there are some scenes that are a rugged and raw depiction of a world that is at times violent, and even frightening. “
