POLIÇA - Amongster

Remember when you were watching all those nature shows with the kids, with fungi, snails, and slugs slithering around, straining time-lapse and uncannily anthropomorphic-like toward the sky, and thought -- "that sure reminds me of, um, . . . that's not at all what I should be thinking about." Well, here's the video you were beginning to think about, in a kinda benign but sorta begging for mockery kind of way. Weird hipsters from Minneapolis, indeed.

POLIÇA - Lay Your Cards Out

Post prog, synthy psych from Minneapolis.  Bound to be a hipster fave, it seems, despite Channy Moon Cassello's move from her former folk persona to an auto-tuned machine sound for the vocals here.

Heartless Bastards - Done Got Old

This one speaks for itself.

Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan - Back Burner

Minimalist and sexy.  And when the organ kicks in just for a moment about midway, I'm completely committed.

Lambchop - This Corrosion

Exquisite cover of this gothy Sisters of Mercy song.

Lambchop - Give It

Nashville stalwart, from a fairly recent live performance.  There's a gripping revelatory mood in this particular clip.  Kinda awesome.

Die Antwoord - I Fink U Freeky

Latest sensation from "rap-rave" South African duo.  I like the aesthetic better here than the bouncing dildos in their last single, "Evil Boy."  Still consistently shiver worthy.

Thievery Corporation - "la femme parallel"

Drive-by Truckers - Angels and Fuselage

Sludgy neo-psych from Italy
