Mogwai – “Coolverine”

Well, there goes gravity. It was fun while it lasted. No more sugar in your coffee. No more playing chess. Is that two moons in the sky? That’ll be the culprit. There should only be one.

What does all this have to do with the raging man on the roof who takes up half the video? Nothing, it seems. Maybe he’s angry because he can’t jump now.

“Coolverine” comes from Mogwai’s upcoming (and Dave Fridmann-produced) Every Country’s Sun (the cover looks like a Death Star scene from Rogue One, no?).

UUVVWWZ – “Open Sign”

Swim party at the Great Pit of Carkoon!

Remember: a mud mask will help fend off Predators, but it won’t fool the Sarlacc. Be careful, or you may end up slowly digested over a thousand years.

“Open Sign” comes from UUVVWWZ’s 2013 album, The Trusted Language.

Spoon – Can I Sit Next To You

Wolfman rides the subway.

He’s come a long way from his days in the forest. He’s civilized. Red Riding Hood is willing to date him. Life is good… until the polkadot druids come calling. Can he dance his way out their grasp?

No need, it seems; they eventually vanish like Obi Wan getting lightsabered. By the way, how did his robe stay behind when the rest of his clothing went with him? And how did he get a new robe when he came back as a ghost?

This freakish mélange is from Spoon’s upcoming Hot Thoughts.

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.

Daniel Romano – “I’m Gonna Teach You”

This is definitely not what we imagined, when we imagined a video for the opening track on Daniel Romano’s new album. Of course, we didn’t know Chad VanGaalen would be involved ’til now (the animations are his).

The revenge scheme at the centre of “I’m Gonna Teach You” is intact; it’s just playing out on another planet, and the characters are grotesque aliens that hang out in the cantina from A New Hope.

It must suck to be a member of a species that melts when someone grabs your ear. Romano’s If I’ve Only One Time Askin’ is out now.

Mad Ones – “Walking The Ceiling”

That jerk Palpatine won’t let anyone have any fun. All Chewbacca wanted to do was use his newly-gained superpowers to fly around the forest, but ol’ Lightning Bolt Hands couldn’t stand to see someone enjoying themselves.

Can Chewie defeat the most dangerous man in the galaxy? Who will control the power crystal?

Pick this single up for free at Mad Ones’ Bandcamp site.

Brave Shores – “Never Come Down”

Whoever first suggested that “the hair makes the man” (not an easy thing to determine, as it turns out) probably didn’t have this neon mood do in mind.

We’ll toss out another saying that seems apt here: absolute power corrupts absolutely. With the kind of influence this guy’s hair was wielding, it was only a matter of time before he turned to the Dark Side and met his inevitable end.

Brave Shores release their debut EP later this month.
