Videos: Il Sogno del Marinaio (Mike Watt): “Auslander”

Posted by johng on Thursday, October 2, 2014 at 12:00 PM (EDT)
Image Punknews is thrilled to debut the new video by Il Sogno del Marinaio, the band featuring bassist Mike Watt, drummer Andrea Belfi and guitarist Stefano Pillia. The video is for "Auslander," off the band's brand new album Canto Secondo, out via Clenchedwrench Records.

In the video, the band plays off each other like a jazz trio, contrasting texture, tension and tactile tactics. Meanwhile, bleached images display the expansive grandeur of waterways and urban sprawl. It's abstract, haunting, and like Watt's best work, wide open for interpretation.

Videos: Mastodon: “The Motherload”

Posted by mark on Thursday, October 2, 2014 at 9:00 AM (EDT)
Image Mastodon has released the video for "The Motherload," taken from the band's most recent effort, Once More 'Round The Sun. Responding to criticism that the clip is sexist, drummer Brann Dailor told Pitchfork that it was not to be taken so seriously:

I don't know, I just don't see the sexism in it. I know there's half-naked women that are shaking their butts. For some people it's titillating, but for me it just looked amazing. I thought the girls were awesome and talented, and I thought it was amazing to watch. I love when it turns into that kaleidoscope effect thing; it brings the video to a whole new level. But it's gotten people talking obviously, you know. I figured that would happen, you know what I mean. I knew there was going to be some negativity. But we do that; we're that kind of band. It hadn't been done before, and we were kind of looking for something that hadn't been done before because it's hard to come by these days.

Streams: Entropy: “All Work, No Plagiarism”

Posted by johng on Wednesday, October 1, 2014 at 4:00 PM (EDT)
Entropy Today's stream comes from Orange County, New York-based Entropy. We've got a stream of the band's new release, All Work, No Plagiarism.

On the release, the band blasts though hyper-short tunes influenced by the likes of modern hardcore champions including Paint it Black and Cloak/Dagger. But, while the musical backing comes from the east coast, the band's vocals are pure 80's California punk. Hints of Mike Muir and Ron Reyes are found in vocalist Brian Lawrence's voice as he screams about ecstasy at the Circle K. This is hardcore that doesn't forget to be punk.

You can find the pre-sale here. Meanwhile, you can find the new album on the band's Punknews.org Profile

Media: Minus The Bear: 'Lost Loves'

Contributed by alex101. Posted by kira on Wednesday, October 1, 2014 at 3:00 PM (EDT)
Minus The Bear Minus the Bear are streaming their forthcoming album Lost Loves over at Pitchfork. The album is due out October 7, 2014 via Big Scary Monsters and features 10 tracks with a few that have been remastered and re-recorded. Bassist Cory Murchy told Pitchfork:

Inevitably some of your favorite songs are going to be cut in the necessity of creating the right sequence for that particular time. Regardless of the reason they weren't included, it wasn't for lack of love and appreciation of the songs themselves.

You can stream the album here.

Media: Restorations: “Tiny Prayers”

Posted by kira on Wednesday, October 1, 2014 at 2:00 PM (EDT)
Restorations Noisey is streaming another new track from Restorations from their forthcoming album LP3, due out October 28, 2014 via Side One Dummy Records. The song is called "Tiny Prayers." Frontman Jon Loudon told Noisey in an interview:

[This song] was probably the fastest one we wrote for LP3. I think we started and finished it in maybe one practice session? Yeah, "Tiny Prayers" is pretty much Restorations on auto-pilot, this distilled example of the band.
