Video: George Michael – Careless Whisper

It’s no big secret that Guilty Feet drew it’s name from an homage to George Michael’s “Careless Whisper” displayed by Matt Helders on his bass drum. The track is one of the very best from 80’s, no doubt, and I’d be hard pressed to come up with a better inspiration for the title of a blog about music.

George Michael passed away suddenly on Christmas Day and the music world and fans are mourning his passing. This is just a humble blog bearing a reference to his legacy, but I felt it important to share “Careless Whisper” one more time and reminisce on the good times and good tunes. 2016 has been a rough year for beloved artists.

Video: DAMEHT – Creeper Creeper

Blistering, infectious goodness surges through DAMEHT’s newest single “Creeper Creeper”. Tap your foot, thrash your head – whatever you do, fall in line and in love with the grimy, pop and rock fused sound. The video is also particularly swell, featuring a young woman breaking out of her shell at a DAMEHT concert and the crowd following along.

There’s something delightfully devilish in Rivington Starchild’s raspy vocals that adds the perfect amount of panache to the group’s over the top, home run style. You can dig up “Creeper Creeper” for your own collection on iTunes.

Video: The Last Shadow Puppets – Aviation

The Last Shadow Puppets are cranking up the machine in anticipation of the release of their second LP Everything You’ve Come To Expect. With a name (partially) inspired by Matt Helders, it’s fair to say we’re big fans of Alex Turner and Miles Kane. The countdown to the new album has been a tad tortuous for myself, and I’ve been so busy otherwise I completely missed that the group had released two singles since we first laid ears on “Bad Habits”.

“Aviation” features that familiar seasoning found on The Age Of The Understatement, including a faint whiff of strings similar to those found on the song of the same title. The nearly four-minute jaunt is pretty delightful, and the video features a shaven Miles Kane and impressively coiffed Alex Turner digging what I presume is their own graves on the beach next to the ocean.

Video: Panda Bear – No Man’s Land

I must admit I’d forgotten about Noah Lennox and Panda Bear. I can’t even remember the last time a Panda Bear track dropped (though apparently I missed a whole album during my hiatus), but I do remember being in love with Tomboy for about 3,500 plays worth of activity.

“No Man’s Land” is tickling my fancy, for sure – thanks based Spotify. It’s taken from the Crosswords EP which you can purchase here at Domino. Now…let’s get to exploring Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper.

Video: HAERTS – Giving Up

Halloween is here. Costumes are being finalized. Candy being purchased last minute. My son is eating a cupcake and talking about how he’s going to “go get lots of candy tonight, right dad?!” Meanwhile, I’m watching HAERTS’ video for “Giving Up”, a black and white montage of lip locking and joyous embrace. I don’t know what that has to do with Halloween or why I mentioned the holiday, but the song is pretty awesome. More.

Video: PROM – Flickers

PROM has the hazy dreamscapes cornered in the video for “Flickers”, where they’ve coupled up with one of my favorite tracks of late for a dynamite package of green fields, beauty and innocence. More.

Video: Los Angeles Police Department – Enough Is Enough

Ryan Pollie has a video for the terrifically wonderful “Enough Is Enough”, the most intriguing track on his self-titled debut as Los Angeles Police Department. More.

Video: Blossom – Regeneration

A blast of contrasting images filtered through digital haze greets you in this debut video by way of Blossom, a British band – stop me if you’ve heard this before – that we don’t know anything else about. More.
