Video Vacuum - Grinderman, Moonbell, Warpaint, Handsome Furs
What a week, already! Planet Masala in meltdown, due papers and articles, financial fuck ups - and it's only Tuesday. I guess that means we need some visual distraction then, huh?
First we have the irascible Grinderman, whose animated video for 'Mickey Mouse & The Goodbye Man' is a suitably cheeky trip.
Moonbell's 'Figurine' was a fuzzed out gem that we featured a little while back. Well, now it has a video! And any excuse to get back into bed with these San Franciscans is a good one.
God, I love Warpaint! The fact Im seeing the LA quartet play at Splendour In The Grass in a few days is beyond exciting! So in anticipation here is a video for their self-titled track - lush...
Finally, Handsome Furs. I've never listened to their stuff before, but this decidedly NSFW video had me more interested than ever to become involved...er, listen to their back catalogue... And if this doesnt get you over the worktime hump, and just on the hump, then nothing will...
NOW GET BACK TO WORK!
