Deerhoof – “Exit Only” video

Take Shelter’s Michael Shannon stars in a new video as two guys losing their shit while listening to Deerhoof’s ferocious “Exit Only,” from their great new album La Isla Bonita, which is out now. To be fair, Deerhoof’s music does kind of make you feel like you’re losing it—in the best way.


Silk Rhodes – “Realtime”

The second track (after "Pains") that we’ve heard from Silk Rhodes upcoming self-titled debut, out Dec. 2 on Stones Throw, is a delicious slice of minimalist, pyschedelic neo-soul. The L.A. duo are subtle, yet they immediately get under your skin.


Medicine – “Move Along / Down the Road”

For the video to “Move Along / Down the Road,” the best song on shoegazers Medicine’s excellent new album, Home Everywhere, it’s like one of those Windows 95 era screensavers came to life and possessed your brain. The video lets you float through an unreal psychedelic landscape, which is perfect since that’s what Medicine’s music does on its own.


Meatbodies – “Rotten”

Meaty garage-rockers Meatbodies have a video that seems to encompass a certain corner of L.A.—skating, city streets, burritos and the effects of psychedelics. Sick and chunky. It’s off their Mugdals 7”, out now on In the Red, as is their self-titled debut album, which was also recently released.
