Screen Shot 2015-07-30 at 11.37.15 AM

“hazy and beautiful, seeming to exist in some kind of liminal space.”
The New York Times’ T Magazine

“another sparkling gem of widescreen, starry-eyed synthpop from a band who’ve been crafting such gems for years.”

“beautiful… it conjures all of the hazy, bittersweet nostalgia of uncovering a lost, faded photo of someone you love.”
Gorilla vs. Bear

WATCH // Viet Cong Shares “Continental Shelf” Video Dir. By David Yoonha Park, New Album Out 1/20/15, On Tour Now

“I wanted the video to feel like a reel of film that was purchased accidentally at a garage sale or found buried under someone’s front porch. It’s meant to be an incomplete picture – like screen tests from a lost movie.”

Director David Yoonha Park

Last month we announced a brand new self-titled album from Calgary-based band Viet Cong (Women members Matt Flegel and Michael Wallace). Today, during a short tour through Europe this week, the band has shared a brand new video for the show-stopping single “Continental Shelf” via Noisey premiere this morning. Directed by David Yoonha Park, you can watch the video above or on YouTube.

Pre-order the new album via SC Distribution [cassette / LP / CD bundles including poster], iTunes [get a download of “Continental Shelf” instantly], Amazon, and your local record store.

Watch // Pink Mountaintops Shares New Video For “Ambulance City”, New Album ‘Get Back’ Out April 29th

A few weeks ago Stephen McBean, of Black Mountain, shared news that a new Pink Mountaintops album Get Back will be out April 29th and you had the chance to hear the new (beautifully filthy) track “North Hollywood Microwaves”.

Today, Pink Mountaintops have shared a new video for “Ambulance City”, the first track from the upcoming album via Noisey premiere.

The new video by Olivia Jaffe features Stephen McBean and band in glorious VHS resolution with more costume changes than you can shake a badass stick at. According to McBean, the video came together after he heard director Jaffe about her still-working 80’s VHS camera. This video marks the first time they’ve worked together since 1431 while serving drinks at Joan of Arc’s execution (no need to check the history books on that one, we can say from being there that it’s true).

Pre-order Get Back on iTunes, Amazon, SCD Bundle, and your local record store.
