Film At 11: Perfume Genius

Mike Hadreas (a.k.a. Perfume Genius) readies for the release of his new album, Too Bright. While we wait, he has issued a video for first single “Grid,” and it’s an odd one. In the clip, Hadreas is surrounded by people in creepy, silver full-body suits. They pull and push Hadreas all while some entertainingly sinister music bumps loudly through it all. Check it out below.

Film At 11: DoublePlusGood

Portland’s DoublePlusGood played a key role in ushering in synth pop to the Northwest. The band’s new full-lenth, You Can Master Life, mocks the idea of mastering a relationship while exploring the deficit of high expectations. Now the outfit has released a video for single “Words Fall Asleep.” The clip is an adorably and creatively crafted work of wonderful art, and it’s all drawings. We are proud to premiere it today on magnetmagazine.com. Check it out below.

Film At 11: Bob Mould

Bob Mould needs little introduction. From Hüsker Dü to Sugar to his recent solo efforts, Mould has certainly made a name for himself in the world of music. He has now released a new video for “The War,” a track from Beauty & Ruin. The video features a very sweaty Mould and his band touring around and playing shows. From the clip, it’s clear that Mould shows no signs of slowing down musically,or physically, and there is even a special guest appearance at the end. Check it out below.

Film At 11: La Roux

British synthpop act La Roux, the project of Elly Jackson, released sophomore album Trouble In Paradise in July, and now she has a new video for “Kiss And Not Tell.” The song is a very upbeat and poppy tune, while the clip is colorful, fun and vintage. It’s also quite comical. Check it out below.

Film At 11: Swearing At Motorists

Swearing At Motorists, the two-piece rock project formed by frontman Dave Doughman, prepares for the release of a new album, While Laughing, The Joker Tells The Truth (on Anton Newcombe’s A Recordings Ltd), in October. Until then, Doughman has dropped a video for “Academy Award For Best Actor In A Supporting Role.” It’s a short clip directed by Mike Postalakis (who has worked with Guided By Voices), clocking in at just more than a minute, and it’s pretty funny. Doughman dresses as a German version of Easy E with an NWA-style jacket as he pays respect to the Ohio hip-hop scene of his youth. We are proud to premiere the video today on magnetmagazine.com. Check it out below.

Film At 11: Peter Matthew Bauer

Peter Matthew Bauer (Walkmen) recently released his debut album, Liberation, and it was well-received for good reasons. Now, he’s issued a video for a track off the LP called “You Are The Chapel.” The simplicity of the clip speaks to Bauer’s music style and to how his personality might actually be. Let’s just say he dances a lot. Check out the video below.

Film At 11: Shabazz Palaces

Upon first listen to Shabazz Palaces‘ “#CAKE,” it may take a minute to realize the entire song is about eating cake. The new video for the track looks very serious and dark, showing shots of the streets, old structures and someone falling from what looks like an extremely high height. The clip and the song together is a little confusing, but that doesn’t mean it’s not entertaining and very well done. Check it out below.

Film At 11: Chad VanGaalen

A few songs on singer/songwriter Chad VanGaalen‘s newest album, Shrink Dust, seem like they were made with the intention of having a video to accompany them, but “Monster” especially seems so. The imagery in the lyrics of this song is incredibly detailed, and the matching video doesn’t disappoint. The song is about turning into a monster, and the video gives you a trippy view of what they might look like in VanGaalen’s mind. Check it out below.

Film At 11: J Mascis

J Mascis needs little introduction. As a founder of Dinosaur Jr as well as someone who helped usher in a new age of independent music, Mascis knows what he is doing. He just released new album Tied To A Star (Sub Pop) and now he has a hilarious video for “Every Morning,” featuring Portlandia star and musician Fred Armisen. Words do little justice; you’ll have to watch it for yourself. Check it out below.
