Crocodiles "Endless Flowers" (video)


San Diego's Crocodiles give 'Endless Flowers' title track the video treatment via accomplished director Pete Dee (above). We've been fans of Crocodiles for some time now but doesn't the term fan come from the word fanatic? Before you decide (or check Wikipedia) watch the video. Go!

Helio Sequence "October"

Listen to "October" the first release from the forthcoming album (below) which the band has made available for free download. 'Negotiations' is available for pre-order now via Sub Pop and will come with a quadrophonic companion titled 'Aces' that is meant to played at the same time as 'Negotiations' on a separate system to enhance your listening experience. Blow-minding!

ShadowBox "AM" (video)


Shadowbox "AM" {OFFICIAL VIDEO HD} from STEAMCLAM on Vimeo.
ShadowBox (Bonnie Baxter) releases video for "AM" from forthcoming EP 'Haunted by Colors' out July 24th via Pictures Music. Watch the Matt Kliegman directed video (above) starring Marc Jacobs model Lyle Lodwick (which premiered over at Interview Magazine). True collaboration isn't just working together to create something but to do it with joint intellect and the video for "AM" achieves this brilliantly.
