1) L.A.'s (or more properly Van Nuys's) Races have a new video for "Lies", which features a very disturbed looking fellow running through suburban streets. The song is great. They'll be playing at the Troubadour on July 6.
2) I'm sure you all have noticed that nowadays it seems that at most large venue concerts (and even some smaller ones), much of the audience watches much of the show through the lens of a several square inch phone camera, rather than observe the spectacle immediately before them. For this live performance by Heroes and Heroines of "Two Weeks" Tony and Gabe have taken this phenomenon and actually made great art. They instructed the various members of the audience at a Los Feliz house party to film the show on their cell phones, spliced all the footage together, and made a music video of it. Heroes and Heroines have a record release show set at the Echo on June 23.
5) Iceland's Gus Gus (who recently played the final, and reportedly very emotional show at the historic Reykjavík venue NASA) have here a live acoustic performance of their electronic hit "Within You." There's some nice 3 part singing by Daniel Águst, Högni Egilsson and Urður Hákonardóttir. Based on the title of the clip, it appears to have been shot in Vilnius, Lithuania, where the temperature was 4 degrees Celsius.
6) Sigur Rós has never been afraid of including full frontal nudity in their music videos, so I suppose I must warn you (if you haven't seen it yet) that "Fjögur Píanó" (4 pianos) is NSFW. And specifically NSFW in a Shia LaBeouf sort of way (as well as his female counterpart in the video, Denna Thomsen). The video is, for lack of a better word, very "artsy", with lots of confusing "symbols" and modern dance. The song? Kind of boring and over 8 minutes long.
