Ole Foxygen are at it again. Here we are with a new [old] video for their song “No Destruction.” Why it’s a modern day Western! It’s an ode to adolescence! But really, you’re looking at a mix of newly filmed video plus a bit of footage from Foxy’s high school days; clips from The Legend of Colonel Bedlum and the Salty Biscuits (2005), Metronome (2007), Here’s Another One, Jon! (2008), The Buffalo Son (2009), and more included! The video was directed by Sam and Rado’s childhood friend Bryan Felber. WATCH ABOVE!
DON’T WAIT TO GET YOUR “NO DESTRUCTION” b/w “WHERE’S THE MONEY?” 7″! The single is out on May 28 and available for pre-order at SC Distribution.

That’s right, folks. When you pre-order Women’s stellar new record, “Public Strain,” you’ll get a limited edition 7″ that includes two brand new, non-album, tracks. Here’s a little more info on the songs:
Both tracks on this limited 7″ deliver additional insight into the collision of style that informs Women’s complex new album. “Grey Skies,” a pristine, 1950′s slow dance weeper is a throwback to an era when musical composition wasn’t entirely hinged-upon irony. “Service Animal” seamlessly bounces upon charmingly polarized guitar phrases and 60′s inspired melody.”
Above is a picture of the beaut. You can snag your own copy by pre-ordering HERE.
To celebrate the release of Scratch My Back and the impending Record Store Day split 7″ by Bon Iver and Peter Gabriel, Real World has released a film featuring the two artists discussing the songs. Both interviews include audio of Peter Gabriel’s “Flume” and (never before heard!) Bon Iver’s “Come Talk To Me.” It’s a really special video, and I’m tearing up a little bit. Okay, I’m tearing up a lot.
Make sure to arrive early and pick up this 7″ on 4/17 at your local Record Store Day celebration.
