Punk rock legends the Buzzcocks are back with their ninth studio album, The Way, out now via 1-2-3-4 GO! Records.

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds plan to issue a new album, Chasing Yesterday, on March 3, and now releases a video for “In The Heat Of The Moment.” The clip watches the band play live in a hazy setting with ever-changing lights.

José González readies for the release of his new album, Vestiges And Claws, out February 17, and has a new video for the song “Every Age.” The video carries out a unique idea, hooking a fisheye camera to a weather balloon and sending it away. The video is of course from the view of the camera, and we follow it as it leaves this world, all while a soft melody plays in the background. Check it out below.
The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, currently on tour with the New Pornographers, recently released a deluxe edition of 2014 LP Days Of Abandon, with five bonus tracks. Now the band has a colorful new video for “Kelly,” which gives off some ’70s vibes. It shows the band playing and also tastefully blurs the band members’ faces every one in a while, making it entertaining and different. Check it out below.
Sharon Van Etten proved she could evoke tears from just about anyone with her latest album, Are We There. Now she releases a new video for heartbreaking track “Your Love Is Killing Me.” The song itself is extremely emotionally powerful, and the clip is no less. It follows a clearly distressed woman as she walks the streets on the verge of tears. But it lets the listener decide what’s going on inside the mind of our main character so that we may all see her as ourselves. Check it out below.
Scotland’s the Twilight Sad recently released Nobody Wants To Be Here And Nobody Wants To Leave via FatCat Records, and now the trio shares a new video for “Last January.” The clip, tastefully in black and white, depicts two men who seem troubled, and it well-accompanies the intense feeling of the song. Check out the video below.
Sweet Apple is an indie supergroup featuring John Petkovic, J Mascis, Tim Parnin and Dave Sweetapple. The band plays a distinct brand of sweet, sticky rock ‘n’ roll, and now the guys have a new video for “Reunion,” featuring a duet with Guided By Voices frontman Robert Pollard. The clip is sorta Halloween themed and quite humorous as Mascis stares blankly at young children asking for candy at his front door. Meanwhile Sweetapple steals the kids candy and skateboards away with it, but he wont get far. Check it out below.
The Afghan Whigs recently released Do To The Beast, a sort of comeback album for the band that put it back in the hearts of listeners.

With the death of Lou Reed tipping over a year now, it wasn’t a surprise that John Cale put out a song in his tribute titled “If You Were Still Around.” But out of this track also came a colorful-yet-sad video in which Cale is clearly contemplating the death of his lost friend. Check it out below.
Singer/songwriter Hamilton Leithauser, former lead singer of the Walkmen, recently released his solo debut, Black Hours, and now has a new video for “5 AM.” The clip follows the somber mood of the song with dark, gloomy imagery that clearly takes place in a past time period, and it tells an interesting story along the way.
