Gun Outfit – “Dream All Over”

L.A. dream-rockers Gun Outfit have released several great tracks already from their upcoming fourth album, Dream All Over, which is due Oct. 16 on Paradise of Bachelors. The title track builds on droning guitars that split the difference between Morricone and The Velvet Underground, painting imagery of a moonlit California sky with tangled guitar thunder. Check out Dream All Over when it comes out next week.


Drab Majesty – “The Heiress” video

Defiantly gothy synth-pop of the highest order comes to us from L.A.’s Drab Majesty on “The Heiress.” It’s the latest single and video from their album Careless, out on Dais. Get lost in their halls of purple neon and digital waves via Tiny Mix Tapes. They’ll be at Oakland’s Santos Studios Nov. 6 and L.A.’s Complex Nov. 7.


HEALTH – “Stonefist” Live from Il Duomo video/“Flesh World” (Kenton Slash Demon Remix)

To kick off their new tour, L.A. noisemakers HEALTH have premiered a new, high-quality live video of their single “Stonefist,” taken from the band’s latest release, Death Magic. The video is notable for being shot in 8K, with the whole thing made in one shot using a Sony F65 camera. Giorgio Testi, who’s shot live videos for Blur, The Rolling Stones, Savages and more, uses only zooms and pans to account for the movements in the video. Watch it via Noisey. HEALTH will be at S.F.’s Independent Dec. 11 and L.A.’s Teragram Ballroom Dec. 12.


The band also this week unveiled a pretty sinister remix of the track “Flesh World” by Copenhagen duo Kenton Slash Demon. Check it out below.
