Come January 12th, Boston indie duo Modesta will be releasing their debut studio effort, a self-produced four track EP entitled VHS. It’ll be just over a year since we first encountered the group’s indie electronica and R&B infused indie rock. The title track is a fitting homage to the 80s, considering its name. It’s also a spacey psychedelic, funky sashaying electronic cut, a bit like MGMT crossed with Tame Impala, with a drizzle of Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s diaphanous glide. How else would such a song be delivered but with a music video that feels like we’ve stepped into an old VHS tape? VHS can also be streamed via Spotify, here. We’ll be waiting for the rest of the EP to arrive in a couple of weeks.

I know I’ve laid it on thick with the praise when it comes to rising UK indie alt rock act Racing Glaciers, but I continue standing by my proclamation that they’re a band to watch. The five piece have certainly gotten me quite excited over the past months with songs like New Country, Moths,  and First Light, weaving magnificent soundscapes reminiscent of less gruff Kings of Leon meets grandiose Coldplay, with some Explosions In The Sky post-rock cinematics thrown in. Today, they’ve premiered VHS, easily one of their most rocking numbers and one that’s heavier on that Kings of Leon reference I just made. Racing Glaciers will be releasing their new EP, Don’t wait For Me, on August 18 via Killing Moon Records. Revisit New Light and Moths below.

OFFICIAL VID: Kreayshawn – Summertime feat. V-Nasty – Pseudo VHS video

July 4, 2012

Love her or hate her, there’s no questioning whether Kreayshawn is relevant right now in the indie scene. Here’s the old school VHS-like video for Kreayshawn’s Summertime. It’s a cute little sunshiny ditty that’ll worm itself into your head. I couldn’t help tapping my feet to it. It’s a good one for your pool side chillaxing parties. 

OFFICIAL VID: CANT – Believe

October 21, 2011

I think I shared the track previously, but here’s the video for it. It’s a strange video montage made of old VHS clips of lights in the sky and peoples’ reactions upon seeing them. Kind of odd. Perhaps there’s some sort of UFO obsession going on with CANT? Well, the song is pretty genius, so they can do whatever random thing they want, I suppose.
