WATCH // Pink Mountaintops Shares “North Hollywood Microwaves” Video Dir. By Annie Hardy Via A.V. Club Premiere, New North American Tour Dates Start 4/30

You had the chance to hear the new (beautifully filthy) track “North Hollywood Microwaves” when Stephen McBean [Black Mountain] announced a new Pink Mountaintops album Get Back will be out April 29th. Today, A.V. Club has premiered the new video for the track directed by Annie Hardy [Giant Drag] the explicit rapping maestro also featured in the song. Watch it above or here on our YouTube.

On the trippy new video Hardy says,

“I’d like to imagine I supplied at least some of the inspiration for “North Hollywood Microwaves.” I met Stephen McBean through my good friend Joe Cardamone (who produced the Pink Mountaintops LP) who always knows who to introduce to who. Joe, Stephen, Travis Keller and I met for lunch, first at my house in North Hollywood (clue 1) and on the way to Mrs Peaches Soul Food I told the car a story of a not-so-distant past that found my house (Full Psycho HQ) rocking 4 microwaves (clue 2). A few weeks later Joe told me Stephen had heard my side project PnP (a “free jizz” band of all improv music that Joe was lucky enough to record: a 51 minute freestyle musical odyssey that I’ve yet to outdo (clue 3)) and Stephen wanted me to come rap on a song. Wouldn’t you know it, I went down and threw down two mere freestyles and forgot about it until Stereogum told me they were debuting it. I asked Stephen if I could make a music video for the song and he said yes. Stephen sent me an amazing video of himself dancing which really legitimized my video. I came down with a vicious kidney infection that ended with me in the ER, which couldn’t have worked out better for the “me and Rod Stewart at the hospital” part of my freestyle. All in all I’d say this video and the experience was a great one and is just more proof that the universe is a magical place for anyone that dares to adventure… And that North Hollywood rules.”

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

WATCH: New Moonface Video, West Coast Tour Starts Saturday

Throneboogie brings us a new video for Moonface’s “I’m Not The Phoenix Yet” with some serious Buns Of Steel / Rocky vibes. Shot on a VHS-camera, it’s throwback to the days when workout videos were all the rage. Watch above or at Pitchfork TV, where it premiered earlier this morning.

WATCH: Foxygen Tour Commercial – VHS Edition

Ole Foxygen bring you an announcement: THEY’RE GOING ON TOUR. Check out their “commercial” above – it’s the VHS edition. Then don’t be shy, head out to see the boys live. Tour dates below! Sam and Rado release their mini-album, Take The Kids Off Broadway, July 24. Give it a preview; listen to “Waitin 4 U” and “Make It Known.” Like what you hear? Pre-order HERE.

“The bursts and jaunts that erupt across the Take The Kids Off Broadway ep are economical, yet bombastic. Controlled chaos, there’s an order to the world of Foxygen. With influences that reference some of the Kinks oddest moments to Jonathan Richman and the aural decadence of one-time disco troubadour Maxine Nightingale, the ep’s flow is loose, yet one that never feels randomly slapped together from darts thrown at torn out pages of a diary.” Aquarium Drunkard
