WATCH // Exitmusic Share New “White Noise” Video

Exitmusic share their disturbingly beautiful “White Noise” video. Directed by Monica Perez, the visual features both Aleksa and Devon in an attempt to further explore the “fractured self.” If you have not watched the video yet, do so now above or at NPR.

“Exitmusic’s Passages was one of 2012′s darkest and most arresting ambient rock albums. Now, the band returns with an equally transfixing new video for one of the album’s standout tracks, ‘White Noise.’”Robin Hilton, NPR

“White Noise” comes from Exitmusic’s 2012 release, Passage. The album is available now at SC Distribution, Amazon, and iTunes.

LISTEN UP // Dungeonesse Share New Track – “Nightlight”

Hump day just got a little better. Dungeonesse share a new cut from their forthcoming debut, out officially on May 14. Titled “Nightlight,” the song premiered earlier today at Pitchfork. It’s a break-up song of sorts and an especially impressive display of Jenn Wasner’s vocal talents. Stream above.

Today we get our first musical taste from Cayucas. Premiering this morning at MTVu, it’s the video for their new single “Cayucos.” Calling the video “a throwback to the timelessness of the beach and the people you share such a fond place with,” director Nolan Wilson Goff chose Corona Del Mar Beach and Whittier, CA as the backdrop to the video. Get your sunglasses, towel and swimsuit ready; we’re going to the beach >>> enjoy the video above!

“Take one gorgeous blonde with a flare for excellent summer dresses, throw in four awkwardly cute indie rockers, mix with one scenic beach and you get the catchy-as-hell, super fun to watch new video by Cayucas.” – MTVu

Here’s a treat for your Wednesday! Zach shares a new Spotify playlist with songs he’s lived with for the last year or so. Listen below!

“All i can really say about these songs is that I’ve listened to them a lot over the past year or so… & they’ve inspired me very much. It’s a mixture of new indie stuff, as well as oldies that I had to dig up from my CD collection & rediscover. For some reason or another, I love these songs…” – Zach
