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: Chet Faker x GoldLink – On You

This Songs From Scratch stuff is beyond the pale. Every collaboration is so filthy good, even that one disappeared from Hemsworth and Starlito. Whatever happened to that, anyway?

Regardless, Chet Faker and GoldLink combine to make your ears sing with joy, just like our buddy Christopher Walken will in his newest role for NBC. I dunno if “On You” can live up to the eternal Captain Hook, but it’ll hook your sensibilities for at least a few listens.
