  • I think it’s safe to say that at some point in the history of your life, you watched an infomercial. Be it to fall asleep, out of boredom, or for a laugh. Pissed Jeans “Bathroom Laughter” video is nothing like those infomercials – imagine if that infomercial was a nightmare. Set to their frantic, stormy, dirty grind, you can watch everything that could go wrong, go wrong – and while you watch between 12-12:30PM today, you can also live chat with the band through Youtube.

  • Hollow Earth Radio has announced the line-up for this year’s Magma Fest. All throughout March you can catch the shows, which benefit the DIY station, at Hollow Earth itself, Black Lodge, 20/20 Cycle, and more. This year also features a collaboration show with Burger Records, with La Luz, Dude York, Detective Agency and Weird Bug. See the whole line up at Hollow Earth Radio.
  • California disco/pop trio of sisters, HAIM, have shared plans for a new EP as well as this single “Falling.” They just recently won the BBC Sound of 2013 award, and worked with producer Ariel Rechtshaid on the new EP. He’s worked with the likes of Charlie XCX and Sky Ferreria – and you can tell in this slightly darker take on their typical pop ballad. [Stereogum]

  • The xx have announced that they will be extending their tour dates to include shows alongside Grizzly Bear. As if seeing just one of them was not enough. Both are touring with their 2012 releases – The xx are for Coexist, and Grizzly Bear supporting Shields.You can find those dates over at Pitchfork.
  • Sub Pop  is turning 25 with a special released on April 25th, Record Store Day. A perfect combination of  a great record label and a great day to celebrate where those records are sold, Sub Pop 1000 will feature tracks from Peaking Lights, Iron Lung, My Disco and others. [Prefix]
  • Poster children for harmonies and hand claps, Local Natives released a video for “Heavy Feet” from their album Hummingbird. The video is subtitled “The Ecstatic Flight of the Llandow Visually Impaired Harriers,”and thus features three blind men building and flying model planes. Between the delicate treatment of strong emotions by Local Natives and the feel for the sky blind me – the video is fittingly sharp and straightforward. [Stereogum]
