The Flaming Lips, Mike Boyd and Death From Above 1979 Lead Our Music/Video Roundup
Published Jul 14, 2014New music fans, Monday should be your favourite time of the week — it's the day we wrangle a handful of essential new tracks, album streams and videos from the past week into our Music/Video roundup. Take a minute today to pour over our roundup and see all the great stuff it has to offer. Get settled, turn the volume up and click away below, then head to our Music/Video section for more every day.
First up, the Flaming Lips offer up a beyond bizarre mini-film called "Blonde SuperFreak Steals the Magic Brain." It features unexpected appearances from Miley Cyrus, Moby, an unidentified naked woman and many more otherworldly characters. The video is very strange, and very NSFW, so click play at your own risk.
Then, be sure to Note the Sarcasm in Mike Boyd's new redneck-themed video for "This Ain't Funny." Catch him and fellow rapper Classified in all of their overall-clad, rifle-toting glory at the link above.
Heading back to familiar territory, Death From Above 1979 graced listeners with a brand new track, "Trainwreck 1979." It's loud, heavy and everything fans expected of the Canadian funk-punk duo. We've also got a full album stream of Grow on You, the latest release from Vancouver pop-punk act Slow Learners. Give it a listen and decide for yourself if this record was worth the wait.
Finishing off today's roundup is none other than the wildly well-informed interview guru that Canadians know and love, Nardwuar the Human Serviette. Watch the dense, 25-minute interview with Wu-Tang Clan to learn lots of little-known facts about the legendary rap group, then find him in conversation with former Exclaim! cover star and pop dreamer Mac DeMarco. They cover topics that are funny, weird and a little bit gross — click the link to see what we mean.
