Audio / Video: The Presets – “If I Know You”

The Presets just dropped a bombshell of a music video, tracked to “If I Know You” from their 2008 album Apocalypso.

It’s single-handedly one of the most stunningly sublime and beautiful music videos I’ve seen in a long time, with some great (albeit creepily young) dancers. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised at this considering Julian Hamilton’s history with dance. Absolutely gorgeous and crushing synergy of sound, the visual of dance and some really tasteful video editing and interesting cuts.

In case it slipped under your radar, 9:30 Club just announced the Presets will be playing on 4/1 with the Golden Filter. Don’t miss it and check out our review of Apocalypso and interview with Julian Hamilton.

MP3: The Presets – If I Know You

Wye Oak Madness!

Well, kind of.  Just saw this and knew it needed posting too.  P4k.tv scores the premiere of Wye Oak’s first music video, for “Please Concrete,” directed by Bmore’s own Caleb Stine & Eric Diga.  Baltimore rejoice!

Hometown boy Adventure’s single/music video

Pitchfork.tv continues the Bmore love-in this week. Wham City member and all-around unitard-sporting fun guy Benny Boeldt aka Adventure just released this new music video to accompany “Ultrazone,” the lead single off his excellent self-titled Carpark debut, dropping in September.

He plays with EAR PWR tonight at DC’s Velvet Lounge.

Video below, our free audio and interview here and here.

Beach House on Pitchfork.tv

Beach House seem to be making the e-rounds as of late.  Their latest appearance: Pitchfork.tv‘s in-house series “Juan’s Basement.”  They star in a 3-parter this week, part one pairs a live performance of “Gila” lovingly shot in vintage soft focus with an interview on Devotion.

New Death Set Video – Around the World

!!! meet the Field

Fuckin a man, what a golden egg. I’m a huge fan of !!! (fuck the haters, they do solid stuff, especially live) and the Field seems poised to be the newly minted, prodigious flag-bearer of electronic who claimed the title of best critically-rated album of 2k7.

What do you get when you mix the two together? Well, Pitchfork tried it. And it seems as close as you can come to physically basking in warm, sunshiny electronified aural bliss that you can (and must) get up and dance to. This is the opus that so many of the new indie dance circuit aspire to produce when dragging electronica and disco into their music. Just luscious.

Rousing new Dan Deacon video

Pitchfork.tv obsession continues. Dan Deacon’s new video for “Okie Dokie” off Spiderman of the Rings premieres today. Get at it. “Crystal Cat” has been up there for a while now.


Air documentary! Free!

Fucking Air. I love them. Pitchfork.tv nails it again with another potentially great one-week exclusive.

And while I was over there, I stumbled upon everyone’s favorite blog-lash victims, Vampire Weekend. Fuck the haters, “A-Punk” is a spectacularly addictive song. Check the P4K vid after the jump.

PitchforkTV, I give my you my productivity…

Damn you Pitchfork. You have me converted. I am officially never going to get anything done. This series of personal faves the Thermals playing on a rooftop in NYC just put me over the edge. I’m officially hooked. There’s also a killer Radiohead performance.

Score: P4K=1, AS=0.

For those of you unaware, Pitchfork Media launched a new web-based 24-hour music channel called Pitchfork.tv for exclusive video content of all sorts relating to music, from music videos to live performances to documentaries. This must be how amazing MTV felt back when they actually used the channel for music.


Pitchfork Media announces online music channel, attmept to takeover indie world…even more.

Whoa whoa whoa. WHOA. Seriously? Pitchfork is launching an online TV channel. I approach this project with great anticipation and trepidation. This could either be the new sliced bread, or make it a hell of a lot harder to pass go and collect $200 without the stamp of ‘Fork approval. Or maybe both.

Check the official release here.

Snippet from P4K:

So today, we’re proud to announce the April 7 beta launch of Pitchfork.tv, the first-ever music video channel dedicated to documenting independent music as it happens.
