Preoccupations – “Anxiety” [NSFW]

Well, this’ll give you nightmares.

The band—all bug-eyed and psycho killer-ish—is frightening enough, but we also have to deal with multiple masked weirdos, astral projections, abandoned dolls, and bodies floating down a river.

Is that Sasquatch at 1:48?

“Anxiety” comes from Preoccupations’ (née Viet Cong) self-titled debut.

The Magnetic North – “A Death In The Woods”

Is it just us, or does this look like a promotional video from Globex Corporation? “Come to Cyprus Creek and your children will willingly eat salad!”

But wait… there’s a new guy in town. He drives an unconventional car and wears denim. He works on the engine in his driveway. And… are those sideburns? This is the beginning of the end of their idyllic life.

“A Death In The Woods” comes from The Magnetic North’s Prospect Of Skelmersdale.

Billy Moon – “Different Song (Same Girl)”

Easiest acting gig ever: “I’m going outside to have a smoke.” “Can we film you?”

“Different Song (Same Girl)” comes from Billy Moon’s latest EP, That Which You Can’t Throw Away. The Hamilton outfit is tight with one of our favourite breweries, so we’re automatically fans.

The Ghost Is Dancing – “This Thunder”

The Ghost Is Dancing are dancing, among other activities, as they recreate scenes from their favourite films. We were able to pick out Bande à part.

“This Thunder” comes from their final (we assume) album, Battles On (2009). We’re not sure what most of the band members are up to these days, but singer Jamie Matechuk appeared briefly as Powers, back in 2011.

Dufferin Starship – “I Would Trade Anything For Love”

Dufferin Starship apparently formed after two dudes got together via Bunz (we have no idea what this is) to trade a guitar for some bicycle wheels.

“I Would Trade Anything For Love” is their first single and video. Looks like they and Fresh Snow shopped from the same footage bin.

Dufferin Starship have an EP called Not In Service on the way, and word is they plan to donate proceeds from it to the Parkdale Community Food Bank.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – “People-Vultures”

Yep, that’s a people-vulture alright. Don’t see many of those around, these days.

This is a big one, too. That half-Mork, half-Cyberman dude doesn’t stand much of a chance against its death rays. But it looks like a few other contenders plan to test their luck. Will a Sectaur triumph? How about Darth Maul?

“People-Vultures” comes from King Gizzard’s Nonagon Infinity album.

Royal Tusk – “Soon”

Who hasn’t awakened on the sidewalk with a mostly-empty bottle of Jameson beside them? (Though that’s a pretty small bottle—dude’s a lightweight).

Pizza for breakfast? Hair of the dog in his coffee? Could this day get any better? It can certainly get worse. At least he knows his Irish whiskey will never turn on him.

“Soon” comes from Royal Tusk’s Dealbreaker LP.
