  • Chelsea Light Moving have shared a new video for their hardcore, psychedelic rock song “Lip.” This happens to be the bands first ever music video and it looks like they chose to make a bit of a political statement. The track sounds like a rebel’s anthem, so it’s very fitting that it features riots and protestors clashing with cops. See what you think of their first venture into videos below. [Stereogum]

  • Abel Tesfaye, better known as The Weeknd, is offering a taste of whats to come on his future record, Kiss Land, by releasing the title track. Tesfay gives us almost eight minutes of smooth, sensual vocals over dirty lyrics and a screaming background (literally). The song is a contradiction cloaked in darkness with a hint of sexy. Pulling off that odd combination takes serious talent. [CoS]

  • Laura Marling has released the third single from her upcoming album, Once I Was An Eagle. “Once” is a light and airy ballad that allows Marling’s delicate voice really shine. Look for her new record on May 28 via Virgin Records. [Stereogum]

  • Earlier this week I shared one of Queens of the Stone Age‘s creepy cartoon music videos and it seems they have created another (yay!) for our viewing pleasure. This one is for the band’s song “My God is the Sun” and it has an apocalyptic vibe with cars on fire and dead bodies. The images were created by Boneface, the same guy who designed their album cover.
