Friendly Fires | Live Those Days Tonight

Posted on by Kristina

UK band Friendly Fires just dropped their sophomore album, Pala on May 24th and we’ve been shimmying to their first single “Live Those Days Tonight” for a month now.  It’s so good!  “Live Those Days Tonight” screams summer dance anthem.  Who can resist post punk grooves, handclaps for a full out rave?

The video is pretty ravetastic, in the most awesome way, of course:

Watch them perform the track live on Later with Jools Holland:

The band is currently on tour in support of their new album.  Our friends saw them last night at Webster Hall here in NYC and they had so much fun. See where Friendly Fires are playing near you.

Little Scream | Red Hunting Jacket

Posted on by Kristina

Montreal-based Little Scream aka musician Laurel Spreingelmeyer’s debut album, The Golden Record was released in April.   The cover art is pretty cool, it features one of Little Scream’s original oil paintings – think gold pantones!

She has a new video directed by Rachel Granofsky for the track, “Red Hunting Jacket.” 

“The song is an excavation of forgotten memories from a relationship built on the run– “What can we communicate that won’t just turn to dust?” Sprengelmeyer sings, her band twisting deliriously beneath.” (via Pitchfork)

The handclapping and flute additions to the track are awesome.

Check it out below:

She’s currently on a U.S. tour with the Antlers, to see where Little Scream is playing near you go here.

My Heart is an Idiot | film by David Meiklejohn

Posted on by Kristina

My Heart is an Idiot is a new documentary on Davy Rothbart (This American Life, FOUND Magazine) and directed by David Meiklejohn.

Here’s a quick synopsis:

“My Heart Is An Idiot is a romantic documentary that spans two years and over a hundred cities. The film captures the road-tripping lifestyle of Davy Rothbart who looks for love in all the right places, and in all the wrong ways.

Climb in the van with Davy as he tours North America promoting his magazine FOUND, a virally popular and iconic printed collection of discarded notes and photographs.  Along the way, Davy seeks advice on his tortured love life from people he meets (Zooey Deschanel, Ira Glass, Newt Gingrich, Davy’s mom, and others), and attempts to follow that advice, with comic and surprising results.

The first feature-length film project from filmmaker David Meiklejohn, My Heart Is An Idiot weaves together multiple stories to illustrate the joys and dangers of romantic pursuit.”

Sounds pretty awesome right?

Davy will be present for Q&A after each screening.  Check out where the film is showing in a city near you.  Hey New Yorkers, check out the movie at Little Field or the Tank.
