Blood Red Shoes - “Light It Up”

England. Night. Winter. Cold. Man running with torch. Fire. BURN! BURN! BURN!

Brighton, UK’s rock twosome will release their sophomore album “Fire Like this”
March 1st in the UK and February 10th in Japan. You can stream a few tracks
off the new album on their official website.

Surfer Blood - “Swim (To Reach The End)”

Typical day in Brooklyn for lead singer John Paul Pitts:

• Woken up and carried overhead by a mob of hipster-y looking people
   to his bathroom.
• Running out of his apartment only sporting tighty whities.
• Bumping into douchebags, wearing evil Mickey Mouse looking masks
   in a park picking on a ice cream eating little girl.
• Finding pants at a laundromat.
• To finally, ending up on stage at a gig.

Directed by Chunwoo Kae and Kevin Chapados.

Their most excellent debut album “Astro Coast” is out now.

Starting this week, they will embark on a massive 46 city tour which will
stop in Montreal March 5th @ Il Motore. A stop at SXSW is in the cards aswell.

Warpaint - “Elephants”

3 foxy ladies (and one grunge-y looking drummer) filmed in slo-mo, a wind machine
and an empty performance space. That’s all you need really. Directed by Bruce Muller.

This L.A. foursome (along with Surfer Blood) were my highlights at CMJ ‘09.
Starting this week, they’ll be on the road again opening for Akron/Family.
They too will appear at this year’s SXSW. Their debut EP “Exquisite Corpse”
is out now.

Local Natives - “Airplane”

Shot in a dusty, old mansion, portraits of band members turning into creepy skeletons
and other wacky things occuring. Great use of stop motion video. Directed by Mark Waring.

Another great L.A. Band who’s debut album “Gorilla Manor” has been out
independently for the last year will be officially released in the
good ol’ US of A by Frenchkiss Records February 16th.

You can catch ‘em @ SXSW.

Hollerado - “Juliette”

The band playing at what seems to be an hippy house party run by “Juliette”
better known as Lois Lane in the originial Superman movie and all around
crazy Canuck lady Margot Kidder. directed by Marc Ricciardelli.

You can download their entire album for free right here (scroll towards
the middle of the page). Arts & Crafts are re-releasing “Record In A Bag”
February 9th.

They’ll be doing a month long residency at Le Divan Orange every Saturday
starting February 6th. SXSW bound? you bet your sweet ass they are.

    Warpaint..Local Natives..have you been lurking on AllMediaReviews? :p

    Warpaint actually released another new vide for “Beetles” that you can find on yewtewb . Those ladies have bigger and better things soon ahead I sense. As do Local Natives. I just wish more people getting in to LN’s would also hear and be aware of their work known as CAVIL AT REST which is awesome stuff as well.
