!! OMG, Hunx and His Punx ready “Street Punk” album !!

Hunx Bad Skin.jpg
Hunx and His Punx will release Street Punk, the heavy n’ hateful follow-up to 2011’s wistful Too Young To Be In Love album, on July 23 via Hardly Art.
There are have been a few changes in the Hunx World since we last checked in with band main man Seth Bogart. The group has left Oakland for swankier surrounds in Los Angeles, and bassist and powerhouse singer Shannon Shaw is now officially the band’s main woman, splitting songwriting and vocal duties with Seth.
Described in a press release as “Darby Crash on helium” and “the female answer to The Misfits,” Street Punk was recorded with long-time No Age collaborator Facundo Bermudez and features a cover of the Beastie Boys classic “Egg Raid on Mojo” as well as songs about “bad skin, teen angst, social wimpery, trash, isolation, schizophrenia, peroxided delusion, rat parties and vengeance.” Choice song titles include “Everyone’s a Pussy (F*ck You Dude),” “Don’t Call Me Fabulous” and “Born Blonde.”
Listen to lead single “Bad Skin” below, check out the band’s summer tour dates after the jump, and pre-order the new album here.

p.s. Hunx has the BEST MERCH EVER.

!! OMG, oh don’t bind him: ETML’s ‘Bind Me’ !!

ETML_inline_mo1he2zhAA1qz4rgp.jpg
London-towns-folk ETML’s husky soultones give me the googlies in my nether-nest, his debut self-produced single ‘Bind Me’ has a banging thumpy pulse which kicks in after a round of the 18 year old Eliot’s sing-a-long, accompanied by a woodblock which sounds like it was struck in an empty London Underground tunnel.
I’m a big fan of this summer jam which is released officially in a couple of weeks, which incidentally is when I will be popping over to London to take him up on his offer and tying his hands and legs together to keep him as my personal singing telegram twink!

!! OMG, Goldfrapp go folkloric on “Tales Of Us” !!

Goldfrapp Tales of Us.jpg
Goldfrapp have a ghostly acoustic vibe happening on the follow-up to their 2010 Olivia Newton-John homage Head First.
The British pop duo’s sixth LP, Tales Of Us, comes out on September 10 via Mute (September 9 in the UK) and promises to be their “most narrative, cinematic and intimate recording so far,” according to the press release anyway.
“When you’re relaxed and confident you can excavate places you may not have dared go before,” said Alison Goldfrapp. “I’m drawn more and more to the intimacy and simplicity of the voice & guitar… I am interested in horror, psychologically. Not blood and guts. That’s too literal. I like the horror of the mind.”
Watch the Tales Of Us album trailer below:

And here is the tracklisting:
1. “Jo”
2. “Annabel”
3. “Drew”
4. “Ulla”
5. “Alvar”
6. “Thea”
7. “Simone”
8. “Stranger”
9. “Laurel”
10. “Clay”
Check out Goldfrapp’s 2013 tour dates after the jump. A U.S. tour will be announced soon.

!! OMG, oily skin treatment: The Vein’s ‘Magma’ !!


Oh gees, I’d only just forgotten The Nome King from ‘Return to Oz’ had ever happened to my eyes and only through years of rearing different breeds of ROCK-PETS had I started to trust sedimentary formations with faces, and now this horror flick turns up in my inbox.
The Vein’s new video explores oily magmarbling on a scale of fissured facial snow-scapes and meandering icy river routes.
I’m just hoping the next video doesn’t explore The Wheelers!
