WATCH — The Weather Station’s ‘Kept It All To Myself”

September 14th, 2017

The Weather Station is the Ontario-based band led by singer, songwriter, and actress Tamara Lindeman, who has been recording richly narrative pop songs since the mid-00s. The band’s latest video, “Kept It All To Myself,” lasts just a little over three minutes, but within that time, it manages to trace a surprisingly full storyline. Lindeman’s narrator explores her private experience of a relationship bogged down by non-communication and neuroses. Her solitary plight is captured in the song’s more light-hearted video, directed by Maya Bankovic. The clip features a somewhat-forlorn Lindeman going through banal rituals at home, spotlit, before eventually coming face-to-face with an unexpected doppelgänger on a nighttime constitutional.

READ — Bedouine Speaks with Noisey + Tour Date

September 14th, 2017

Bedouine sat down with Noisey and gave a heartfelt honest interview about life, love, and her minimal folk masterpiece.

“Since its release in late June, Bedouine has enjoyed near-universal critical acclaim. The record is a striking work of 60s folk and country pop that recalls the candor, wisdom, and ache of acts like Leonard Cohen and Nico. The attention has left Korkejian negotiating how to position herself in her new world, and whether she desires to abandon her old one, which includes working behind the scenes as a music and dialogue editor for film and TV. She was recently rewarded with her first breakthrough in recent hit indie film The Big Sick.

“I never thought being a full-time musician was realistic, but of course if I could, I would love that,” she says. “It’s so weird because we think ‘full-time,’ but there’s nothing about it that’s full-time. It’s so all-or-nothing, because when you’re on the road you’re fully there, and when you’re not, you’re adjusting and taking care of your house and doing laundry.””

WATCH — Juiceboxxx’s ‘Go To The Club Alone’ + Tour Dates

September 14th, 2017

“As far as lyric videos go, Juiceboxxx‘s latest, “Go To The Club Alone” watches like a montage of hard-hitting emptiness. On this gritty hip hop track for the relentless partier, the young producer pulls no punches in describing the despair of riding solo in a crowd of strangers, from a dead cell phone that leaves you in a dark corner to being too drunk on the bus ride home. The end result is a double-edged sword. Fighting boredom by forcing social interactions but paying for it with a little mental chaos. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. Either way, it’s catchy as hell.”

“Go To The Club Alone” is cut from his album Freaked Out American Loser, out now on Dangerbird. Watch below.

LISTEN — Giraffage’s ‘Maybes (Feat. Japanese Breakfast)’

September 13th, 2017

Charlie Yin, a Bay Area native known as Giraffage takes bedroom producing to an unlikely level.

“So, basically, I didn’t go outside,” he says of the two years he spent making his debut album, Too Real (out October 20 on Counter Records). “I hung out in my room with my Siamese cat, Cheeky, until it was done. The end.”

Maybes,” the album’s sweaty, lounge-y lullaby, features Brooklyn singer-songwriter Michelle Zauner, better known as Japanese Breakfast. The song is a haze of layered synths, glistening chimes and chopped-up vocals that wash over you in waves. Although its lyrics dwell on indecision, “Maybes” is more about fancy production and heady feelings than any sort of messaging.
