[Video] [Indie for dummies] SHINIES / Shola


SHINIES - Shola (2012)

SHINIES è un trio di Manchester. Shola è il video del loro primo singolo. Essentials: Bandcamp, Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud.

A fun-filled tribute to The Smashing Pumpkins‘ ’1979′ with comical undertones, everyone’s identities are hidden beneath brown paper bags with cut-out surprised expressions – which doesn’t seem to stop anyone from drinking, smoking and partying the night away in rooms draped with toilet roll.[#]

[Canzoni di ieri] Diaframma&Litfiba / Amsterdam


Diaframma & Litfiba - Amsterdam (1985) 

Scender le scale sfiorando il muro
non dare importanza
a chi passa vicino.
Cercando qualcosa di indefinito
la notte svanisce al piano di sopra.

Nelle mia mente
ogni cosa sopravvive in silenzio
sento l'attrito
di grida 
siliate dal mondo.

Come frammenti pulsanti di vita
voci alterate si sono dissolte.
Dove i miei occhi le hanno chiamate,
dove i miei occhi le hanno chiamate,
dove il giorno ferito impazziva di luce,
dove il giorno ferito impazziva di luce...

The Drums - How it ended (2011)


Those days when I would sit around with you
Oh, there's nothing like it
And even when my heart was black and blue
Oh, there's nothing like it
And everything before and after you
Oh, it doesn't cut it

So do you remember the old times
Those were the only times
The only times
I don't know how it ended
I don't know where you ran to
I'll always be right here
I don't know how it ended
I don't know where you ran to
I'll always be right here

You never have to say that you were wrong
I know I'd do it all again
Even if it was wrong
And I could write a thousand more
Songs about you
Transcribed by 
Before this one's done
The next one's begun

So do you remember the old times
Those were the only times
The only times
I don't know how it ended
I don't know where you ran to
I'll always be right here
I don't know how it ended
I don't know where you ran to
I'll always be right here

How will this end
And when will my life begin
Again, again, again, again

So do you remember the old times
Those were the only times
The only times
I don't know how it ended
I don't know where you ran to
I'll always be right here
I don't know how it ended
I don't know where you ran to
I'll always be right here

[Video] [Veterani] Spiritualized / Hey Jane (NSFW)

Spiritualized - Hey Jane (2012) 

Hey jane, where you're going today?
you took a call and you ran all day
that clock going 110, i never said i'll get you back again
so you ain't got time to make no mistakes
ain't got time to waste my prays

hey jane, where you're going today?
you lit a fire then you find the game
they say you got a troubled soul
i say you got it on the road
so you ain't got time to change your ways
ain't got time to make no mistakes, with you
so much you can do

hey jane, where you're going today?
got a love for you anyway
i guess i'm tired of hanging round
i'll meet you there when you coming down
and when you taste
right into my face

hey jane, where you're going today?
you broke my heart then you ran away
some say you got a rotten soul
but i say janey loves rock and roll
so you ain't got time to
ain't got time to mess my head, and you
show them what you can do

hey jane where you're going today?
you living fast lane life right away
got no place for your rotten life
a heart like yours never satisfied
said you ain't got time to search for
running so fast you get no place
i'll get a car for you right away
ain't got time to make no mistakes
ain't got time to waste, with you

hey jane, where you're gonna go
hey jane, where you're gonna go
hey jane, where you're gonna go
hey jane, where you're gonna go

[Live] [Veterani] Deerhunter / Desire lines (Live on the Interface)


Deerhunter - Desire lines (Live on the Interface)

when you were young
and your excitement showed
but as time goes by
does it outgrow

is that the way things go
forever reaching for the goal
forever fading black
comes a glow

walking free
come with me
far away
every day

when you were young
you never knew which way to go
what was once gray
no undertones

well every day do what you can
if you let them turn you round
whatever goes up
must come down

walking free
come with me
far away
every day

[Tanto pe' cantà] [News] Vuoi vestirti come Pete Doherty?



La collezione Pete Doherty in vendita da The Kooples. 
Peter Doherty's collaboration with The Kooples is finally to see the light of the day. We reported last May that the troubled British musician - whose brushes with the law and previous relationship with Kate Moss have been well documented - would be turning his hand to a range for the autumn/winter 2011 season, but this had been postponed to spring/summer 2012 after he was sent to prison for six months last year for cocaine possession and use.

The range, which caters to both men and women, is inspired by the dandyism of British sub-cultures, in particular the 'Suedeheads' and 'Mods' of the '60s, and Doherty's own vintage wardrobe. Highlights for men include a beige panama and brown felt hat designed in collaboration with historic London hat maker James Lock & Co. T-shirts featuring the 32-year-old's artwork also form part of the mix.

For women, a leather dress inspired by British singer Jane Birkin, shorts with braces and a Victorian-style blouse are all adorned with a medal logo - stamping Doherty's love of military and trinkets across the collection.
And this being The Kooples after all, who better than model Irina Lazareanu, Doherty's on-again, off-again lover to model the women's line?
Peter Doherty for The Kooples is due to hit stores on Wednesday, March 14. [#]

[Video] Kakkmaddafakka / Touching


Kakkmaddafakka - Touching (2012) official fan made video

I wanna do something! What'd you wanna do?
Dance!
I wanna do something special with you.
I've been having a boring life lately, so now I wanna be a boy with ADD.

I wanna meet a girl. Which girl?
She's shy, she's sensitive!
So not I'm taking her down to the dance floor,
I'm holding her hand and my plan is to touch her...

I'm touching you, you're touching me, (x3)
You're touching me, I'm touching you. (x2)

So we are standing and dancing and laughing when suddenly she turns around
and dances with another guy.
I'm thinking "ok, is that the game you wanna play?"
I'll find myself another girl.

I'm watching her, she's watching me,
I'm thinking this is not the way it's supposed to be.
[From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/k/kakkmaddafakka-lyrics/touching-lyrics.html ]
That's why I'm making a move, and i move with the groove,
and I ask her to touch me.

I'm touching you, you're touching me, (x3)
You're touching me, I'm touching you. (x2)

Lights come on, security says "Get out of here!"
I'm standing out in the rain and you are nowhere.
This guy comes over to me and says
"do you wanna be with me and my friends on this crazy after party?"

As I cross the floor, they are playing The Cure,
you're standing by the door, I'm walking over
So I give you a wink, and my drink, in a blink you turn pink,
and then we sandwich on the floor!

I'm touching you, you're touching me, (x3)
You're touching me, I'm touching you. (x2)

[CDG] [Veterani] Beach House / Myth





Beach House - Myth (2012)


Drifting in and out, see the road you’re on
you came rolling down the cheek
say just what you need
and in between it’s never aš it seems
 help me to make it
help me to make it
if you build yourself a myth
know just what to give
what comes after this
momentarily bliss
consequence of what you do to me
help me to make it
help me to make it
found yourself in a new direction
eons far from the sun
can you come when they come to reach you
let you know you’re not the only one
can’t keep hanging on
to all that’s dead and gone
if you build yourself a myth
know just what to give
do you lie?
we’ll let the ashes fly
help me to make it
help me to make it

[Tanto pe' cantà] Atlas sound e la cover di My Sharona di 1 ora


Atlas Sound - My Sharona (Cedar Cultural Center, MInneapolis, 02/03/2012)

...things felt a little awkward the moment he [Brandon Cox] initially stepped onstage, his face utterly concealed by a menacing, black, ski mask. But, as he purposefully prepared an intricate guitar-looping framework and launched into "Parallax," all was temporarily forgotten.
The first part of his performance was completely spellbinding. [...]

But then, per request of an obnoxious audience member to hear "My Sharona," things got strange. The transition was stark and instant, as if Cox suddenly felt mocked or distrusting of the audience he had gradually opened dialogue with throughout the course of the night. He obliged to play the song, which at first was generally entertaining. He employed his looping skills again, picking up different instruments along the way and inviting the openers to join him onstage. But it morphed into something bizarre, a unending cover that rivaled the length of a Phish concert and let's get real: "My Sharona" isn't exactly a "jam track."

It was interesting to observe the reactions of the openers. Initially the vibes were positive. The musicians, all fairly young, were clearly honored to be sharing a moment of spontaneity with someone they idolized. 35 minutes later that enthusiasm began to fade. They were visibly uncomfortable and beginning to question the sanity of their esteemed proctor, unwillingly locked in some twisted, Doomsday clock performance of a '70s hit. Yet, "My Sharona" endured still, as did Cox's increasingly awkward interactions with the audience. He asked people to take their clothes off. He shouted seemingly intoxicated defenses about his art. He simulated fallatio. He, to the horror of the Cedar employees, told everyone to pick up their chairs and shake them above their heads. While this behavior in another context could have been viewed as "rock'n'roll" it was unsettling and some people began filtering out of the venue. Eventually, after inviting the audience onstage (which visibly gave the Cedar staff an anxiety attack) he seemed to get the picture that the show was over and bid his adieu, dedicating the show to "the death of folk music and the birth of punk."
