Melodys Echo Chamber

  • The new video for”Crystallized” from Parisian psych-pop project Melody’s Echo Chamber is a glitchy, swirling experience — the characters stop and start, reverse, and loop back their motions in sync with driving, fuzzed-out track. The song, like all the others on the self-titled debut (out now on Fat Possum), is unmistakably Kevin Parker-produced, but not in a way that takes away from the singularity of what Melody Prochet is trying to do. How many times will she fill the vase with flowers, or light a match? Check it out for yourself below. [CoS]

  • Kendrick Lamar made another appearance behind good kid, m.A.A.d. city last night on Letterman. The clip of “Poetic Justice” is below, and you can see for yourself why Lamar’s 2012 album is widely considered one of the finest, if not the best of last year. [CoS]

  • Tyler, the Creator also made a late night TV appearance last night on Jimmy Fallon. The musician played “TreeHome” which then sprawled into “Domo 23″ –both songs are from his new LP Wolf out now on Odd Future. Check out the performance below, and watch Tyler, the Creator transition form playing the piano to ending up on top of it. [Stereogum]

  • Titus Andronicus‘ Patrick Stickles is a huge fan of Free Energy, and proved so by performing a reverent cover of “Hey Tonight”. It is just fantastic. Stickles nails it like only a true fan and gifted musician could. Listen right now, here. [CoS]
  • Ra Ra Riot released a new video for “Dance With me” from the Barsuk-released Beta Love. Wonderfully simple cut out animations of the band escaping zombie skeletons in NYC may seem like a strange choice to accompany the track, but it works. Check out the clip below. [Stereogum]

  • Seattle favorites Hey Marseilles have treated us to perfectly rendered Rushmore/Wes Anderson homage video that is also a teaser for their new album. Lines We Trace is out March 5th (you can pre-order it here). It’s cute — and if there’s any truth in what we see as far the band’s album and tour preparation is concerned…then they are incredibly well-prepared.
