Video of the Day #96: The Gossip

The Gossip – Love Long Distance

I didn’t think that the Gossip’s new tracks could ever live up to the genius of their breakthrough “Standing in the Way of Control”, however it seems I was wrong – this great track has a bit of tongue in cheek feel to it, fun and funky and sees a great progression from the famous trio. Love it.


Amusing Gossip advert…

You’ve probably heard that The Gossip have a new album out next month, and to publicise that they’ve made this rather hilarious video. It’s probably NSFW, but a great way to publicise the album.

The album, Music for Men is out June 22nd, and the single Heavy Cross is out on June 15th.



Vivacious Videos #1

I love Koko in London – some of my favourite gigs of the year have taken place there (Stars, Air Traffic and Death Cab to list three – I also caught Tegan and Sara and Delays there, but didn’t write a review). They’re upping their game a bit, and have released some quick “highlights” programmes if you will – below is the Gossip @ Koko, or if guitar rock is more your sorta thing then catch The Enemy here.


Black Cab Sessions have garnered quite a cult following recently, with some massive artists playing the back of a cab… these include Brian WilsonBadly Drawn Boy, Lykke Li and Death Cab For Cutie. However, I honestly think that the latest one with Kurt from Lambchop was the best… catch it below:

Stumbled across this music video that recycles clips from 41 TV adverts – it’s by a Los Angeles band called From, and sounds pretty good, but the video is what takes a good song to an amazing combination.


Swedish duo First Aid Kit are Wichita‘s latest signings, and are playing the label’s Christmas bash at Hoxton Bar and Grill (tickets £5). To get in the seasonal spirit of things they’ve done a special video… sounds like Tegan and Sara gone all Fleet Foxes on us. And that’s a good thing.

[youtube:] has a great video from a band calling themselves the British Port Authority. Their new single, Seattle, is taken from their forthcoming album “I Think We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Boat” which features the likes of Dizzee Rascal, Jack Penate, David Byrne, Iggy Pop and Martha Wainwright. I can’t find an official website, but watch the video and enjoy anyway!
