Sometimes I forget that bands still make videos. Back before I had MTV I was obsessed with videos and watched them whenever I got a chance. It was hard to find videos and you had to watch late night TV or be one of the lucky people with cable. It is now so easy to watch videos, but for some reason I watch them rarely. MTV doesn't really play videos anymore, but they are now so easily accessible on your phone and computer through YouTube. It is almost too easy. Maybe it is not as fun because it is so easy. Every once in a while I remember how easy it is and I easily spend hours catching up and watching videos. The next couple of weeks have some very exciting new releases. These last couple of weeks are also not so bad. New albums by Bonnie Prince Billy and Cursive and White Lies and Wavves and Tim Hecker. I also really like the new Handsome Furs. This blog is extremely short so you can spend some time watching some videos.

Here are some songs from the last couple of weeks of albums

Handsome Furs "I'm Confused" from the new album Face Control OUT NOW...

White Lies "Farewell to the Fairground" from the album To Lose My Life OUT NOW...

Cursive "Dorothy At Forty" from the album Mama I'm Swollen OUT NOW...

And here are some videos of the songs that I love from new albums not yet out...You need to be excited because there is some great stuff just around the corner

"Day 'N' Nite" by Kid Cudi VS. Crookers (Album out soon...). You probably already either love or hate this song. I personally love it and can't stop listening to it...

"Bounce" by MSTRKRFT ft. N.O.R.E....another song you probably already love or hate...I just saw them perform this song live on the Jimmy Kimmel Show last week. Be careful cause you might not be able to get this song out of your head for weeks:

"Time Lapse Lifeline" by Maria Taylor from the album Ladyluck, out 3/31. I love Maria Taylor and still can't stop listening to her last solo album. She is 1/2 of Azure Ray. The other 1/2 of Azure Ray, Orinde Fink, also just put out an album from her new band O+S which is also fantastic and comes out 3/24.

"Daniel" by Bat for Lashes from the new album Two Suns out 4/7. If you still don't know Bat for Lashes you have a couple of weeks to check out her first album, which is fantastic.

"Black Hearted Love" by PJ Harvey and John Parish from the album A Woman, A Man Walked By, out 3/31. PJ Harvey is finally back in our life and I could not be it:

"The Vulture" by Patrick Wolf from the new album The Bachelor out 6/1. The video is crazy and fantasic as you would expect from Patrick Wolf....I would expect nothing else from him:

"Bits & PIeces" by the Junior Boys from the album Begone Dull Care out 4/7. I don't think they have an official video yet but this works and I really love this song a whole lot:

"When I Grow Up" by Fever Ray from the S/T album out 3/24. This is already one of my favorite albums of the year. It sounds what like what you would expect from the singer of the Knife...good stuff:

"The Rake's Song" by The Decemberists from the new album The Hazards of Love out 3/24:

"So Human" by Lady Sovereign from the new album Jigsaw out 4/13. She is sampling "Close to Me" by The Cure, which would normaly drive me crazy, but I like actually like the song and am excited about the new album:

And here is a link to the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs video "Zero."
The song is very different for them but it has grown on me and I love it and love the video...
