Frankie Rose – “Gospel/Grace” (Video)

This truly “interstellar” clip (ugh) perfectly fits Frankie Rose’s ghostly harmonies and spacey girl-group instrumentation. You guys are in for a real treat with Interstellar, her forthcoming album, I can’t stop listening to it. (Preorder it now!)

Tearist – “Unarmed”
Tearist has been making some really cool, creepily sexy music here for a while now, employing electronics, theatrics and improvisation to enticing effect. This live session, recorded for, sounds like Yasmine and co. are taking it to the next level. The video itself matches the music for shivery atmosphere. I can’t wait to see where they go from here. Read more about the video here. (Check out their album Living: 2009-Present. I've seen it at Amoeba before, so look for that shit!.)
