Now come with me if you will on a journey into the strange world of Biscuithead & the Biscuit Badgers. Their latest single ‘Dinosaurs‘ sees these cheeky chaps go prehistoric! If dinosaurs ruled the earth again then surely Biscuithead would support them on their first tour, so long as Tyrannosaurus rex gets the prawn sandwiches he likes.
We all like a joke but seriously, this Leeds based quartet is known for their theatrical performances and tackling very serious issues such as cheese, facial hair and what they found under the sofa after last night’s dinner date. With two successful albums clamouring for your attention- Interspecies Disco (2010) & The Greatest Show On Toast (2011), Biscuithead & the Biscuit Badgers now need your help to make ‘Dinosaurs’ go bacterial by sharing its stop motion animation video, created by Kerrie McKinnon.
The single is now available for purchase on bandcamp and CD Baby; also there are several tangible merchandise oddities up for grabs on their site under the “tiers of fandom“. Hope you enjoy stepping into the strange world of Biscuithead & the Biscuit Badgers as much as we do!
After doubling their Kickstarter goal last month, Little Tybee celebrated by hosting a live performance of their ‘Boxcar Fair’ project to those lucky enough to be in Atlanta last weekend. For all of us who were unfortunately not in Atlanta, here is a behind the scenes peek at the making!
The video is in it’s final edits and will be released to eager eyes within the coming weeks, so stay tuned! We had the pleasure of catching a sneak peek of the rough cut in the office and it is absolutely spectacular.
Also, rumor has it, a new Little Tybee record should be ready by March 2012, just in time for SXSW!
We first had the pleasure of championing this act a few years ago around his video parody of Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air where Shad plays the part of Will Smith. Since then, Shad’s career has picked up quickly, now with a new record TSOL out on Black Box Music in Canada and Decon Records in the US.
Having just finished up a North American tour with K-OS, and heading off to Europe in a few weeks (see dates on your left), Shad’s style of hip-hop is far from traditional. Incorporating elements of humor, irony, intellect, and instrumental brilliance into both his live show and recordings, Shad’s splash has already hit home with the likes of Pitchfork, URB, and OkayPlayer to name a few, but we still like to think of ourselves as the true discoverers of this Canadian hip-hop anomaly
We saw Shad premier his new video for the single, “We, Myself, and I” in Toronto during TIFF week and can’t seem to get enough of it! Check it out for yourself, along with the Fresh Prince parody titled “The Old Prince” below:

As winter slowly begins to settle in the Northern Hemisphere, we could all use a bit of Campfire OK to warm our souls. The drizzling rain of Seattle is clearly not affecting this indie folk group from producing an array of color and energy throughout the otherwise grim atmosphere.
Their single and title track, “Strange Like We Are”, is full of glowing vocal harmonies, rhythmic banjo, and hand claps that all lead into the driving force that is the angst built chorus. While the band may be indicative of Dr. Dog, The Beach Boys, Simon & Garfunkel, and Sea Wolf, Campfire OK still retains their own unique sound amongst the ever-evolving and always inspirational Seattle music scene.
Initially constructed under the name “Benjamin Bear”, we first heard about this crew when the lead singer of Mighty Tiger was asked to play baritone on their previous record. Since then, the band has released their new EP as Campfire OK under the label support of Ana-Them Records, who will be releasing the band’s full-length album on February 1st of next year.
If Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert were only an appetizer to fill your hunger for comedy and political debate in Washington DC this past weekend, Exit Clov is the soda pop to quench your thirst for the 21st century kids resistance. Blending the essential ingredients of electro pop and grunge like a best of the 90′s super combo, DC’s Exit Clov has one trait you’ll be hard pressed to ignore… FUN!
We first discovered Exit Clov as a recommendation from DeVotchka’s management and have kept an eye on the band ever since. Their single, “District Menagerie” beautifully combines electronic drums with twin female vocal harmonies over a simplistic piano melody. Alternatively, their music video for “MK Ultra” has more of an old-school punk feel with a touch of Atari filling in the gaps.
For those of us lucky enough to be in NYC this week, the band is playing a FREE show at Rockwood Music Hall (Stage 2) this Friday, November 5th, so be sure to swing by for one of their rare live performances!
#1 vacation destination? Copenhagen, Denmark. Why? Arguably the best music scene in the world. With bands like Alcoholic Faith Mission and Oh Land making big splashes at CMJ this year, it’s no doubt that Efterklang’s guitarist, Frederik Teige, is next in line.
Now focusing on his solo material, Frederik Teige brings a mystical yet melancholy approach to his horn and banjo driven new single ‘Elevate’. A testament to the strength in vulnerability, Teige’s ‘Elevate’ shows its anthemic beauty in his brand new video directed by Toronto’s Jaan Silmberg for Pistoltrixx.
We had the privilege of meeting Frederik in Toronto a short while ago through the lovely Leanda Quinquet who not only runs the tasteful Canadian Bloggertronix blog, but also works with both Teige and Lovely Hearts Club’s recently released Tidy Kid. Talking over a bowl of perogies, we caught Teige just prior to his Blogotheque Takeaway video shoot, which you can also catch below.
With a brand new remix of ‘Elevate’ from 5&1/4 Records’ Vangel (Canadian producer & DJ extraordinaire) and a video to accompany it soon, Frederik Teige is giving us plenty to play with before his full album drops next year!
