Babes – Isn’t It Love?

This video from Babes is totally ridiculous and totally wonderful. The song is a dreamy country-tinged lament buoyed by a narrator with stars in her eyes, and the visuals are befitting of a late-night 80s infomercial trying to capitalize on the success of Devo’s “Whip It.”  Baby Bird to Flaps to Roig’s Choice – you, too, can whip up a potential love interest.

Dry the River – Everlasting Light

This was not the sound I was expected when I tuned in to the newest video from UK band Dry the River. My only experience with them had been catching them at the Spotify House a couple of years ago during SXSW, and that performance was stripped down and folky. The gloves are off with “Everlasting Light,” and while it’s a bit more aggressive, the push is not unwelcome.

Stumbleine f/ Violet Skies – We’re Shadows

A beautiful rippling pulse carries this track, the latest from Peter Cooper’s Stumbleine. The song’s unrest and sadness is perfectly put on display with expressionless teens floating adrift and striking hooded figures who seem to be in control.
