1. Swindle – Moodswings (directed by Mr. Tit)

Watch the new mental video from Swindle for his track "Mood Swings", released earlier this year by Butterz. Animation and artwork by Mr Tit.

2. Gatto Fritto – Lucifer Morning Star (directed by ?)

New video for “Lucifer Morning Star” by Gatto Fritto, the project of London-based producer Ben Williams. As we mentioned earlier, his self-titled debut album sounds at once both retro and completely fresh.

3. Kreayshawn – Gucci Gucci (directed by @FUCKZENTIL)

“Gucci, Gucci, Louis, Louis, Fendi, Fendi, Prada / Basic bitches wear that shit so I don’t even bother.” Amazing: check out Oakland’s up-and-comer Kreayshawn!

4. Julian Lynch – Ground (directed by Zahid Jiwa and Miko Revereza)

Julian Lynch drops a mix of folksy post-rock and organic-jazz, all converging with a hypnotic beauty. Have a listen to “Ground”, from his equally beautiful album release, Terra.

5. Death Grips – Takyon (directed by Flatlander)

This is strong alternative hip hop, or better: imagine death core metal meets Wu-Tang‘s RZA! Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

6. Grinderman – Mickey Mouse and the Goodbye man (directed by Ilinca Hopfner)

NSFW-video for Grinderman‘s "Mickey Mouse and the Goodbye Man". Watch huge breasts, machine guns + members of Grinderman doing some Riverdance. Please enjoy.

9. Groundislava – A Grass Day (directed by Michael Patterson)

Pollyester to draw on their Earthly Powers

Pollyester to draw on their Earthly Powers

A duo based out South Germany, Kraut-disco inspired Pollyester will be putting out their debut LP this May entitled Earthly Powers on the much loved label Munich imprint Permanent Vacation.

They have already released two widely acclaimed EPs, on their own own label Imprint Love in C Minor and Permanent Vacation. But there’s a whole lot of history in-between here, Polly aka Polina Lapkovskaya played bass in Gomma’s band Munk, as well as contributing vocals to three tracks of the debut album "Tuning Echoes" by London producers Mock & Toof.

Pollyester’s pop sensibility is widely apparent on their debut, infectious grooves abound, but they have also wedged themselves between, "Tribal rhythms, energetic krautrock, disco strings and Witch-House-moments"

There’s also a 12" that was just released with Pollyester & Munk together.

You can listen to a taster of the LP here plus watch a video for the title track off the album ‘German Love Letter’ below:

Earthly Powers will be released on Permanent Vacation on the 13th of May
