Not only is the new video for Saint Motel’s Destroyer some 360 degree fun (and I’ve had my fun spinning round and round), but their 2016 album saintmotelevision will receive a full on “future is now” sort of treatment too, as it culminates on June 28th with a mobile app launch alongside both its current digital and physical releases. This first of its kind virtual reality album is promised to be an immersive sensory experience.The Los Angeles quartet will be rolling out the remaining videos that go with the album over the next month and a half prior to the VR Mobile App launch. According to official sources: “The Virtualizers are not a replacement for traditional music videos – which the band will continue to make. Instead, they are a separate creative medium allowing for engagements between fans and artists within the virtual realm, all made possible by the proliferation of smartphones and expanding VR technology.” Revisit their funky swinging, brassy bellowing anthem Destroyer via its new visualizer while we await their innovative app. You can purchase the digital version of saintmotelevision via iTunes, here.

Supergroup Summer Moon, which features Nikolai Fraiture (The Strokes), Stephen Perkins (Jane’s Addiction), Camila Grey (Uh Huh Her), and Noah Harmon (Airborne Toxic Event) appeared out of nowhere over a year ago to woo me with a muggy dance rock jangler named With You Tonight. The track, which they marked as a demo at the time, has now received one of those newfangled interactive 360 degree music video treatments, giving us the opportunity get up and strut around once again to the sweltry gem. I’d imagine if Porches, Broken Bells, and Spanish Gold jammed out together, it would sound something similar to this delightful charmer. The video accompaniment tells a tale about two people coming home from a dance ball and stumbling into a strange, occult world. I guess it arrives just in time for Halloween, then! Summer Moon is planning to release a debut album in 2017. With You Tonight is out on all major retailers.
