VIDEO: Bleached’s “Next Stop”


Director Lana Kim shot the new video for Bleached called “Next Stop” as a means to promote their forthcoming album on Dead Oceans called Ride Your Heart. The song is one of those “haul ass”-ers that will make you not think twice about going down a road so you can go down on it. The road, that is.

VIDEO: Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti’s “Only In My Dreams”


Aaah, remember the days when people used to preserve visual images on VHS or Beta tapes, where you were able to show the world how much you hate motel living while coming across pantomime clowns but love Asian ladies who love your singing, but you choose someone else while thinking about it during a stroll on a beach? Then you realize you have been duped in some fashion? All of this placed over a fantastic 80’s soundtrack of folk rock. It was all done on SP mode because SLP wasn’t cool enough for you, remember those days?

No? Well, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti remember something either close or far to that, depending on your interpretations, but some of these things described can be found in their video for “Only In My Dreams”, which is not a Debbie Gibson cover version. With an album that was released earlier this week, they’re also going to tour to back it up. Normally I post tour dates but I’m not going to do that this time. You want to make the effort to see this lad and lasses? Make the effort to click here and check out their live spots.
