  • Seattle’s Chastity Belt teamed up with Pony Time’s Stacy Peck and one local loveable couch to create a video for “Seattle Party” off their upcoming album No Regerts. Can you pick out all the Seattle locations in the video? And for those of you not from around the block, get a glimpse of our city through the eyes of some of its best local musicians. [Impose]

  • This September, dizzying temptress Chelsea Wolfe will release Pain is Beauty on Sargent House — and today, we have “We Hit A Wall”. The track title is self-explanatory: she sings deeply about the grief and frustration of being unable to move forward, all with her bereft vocals soaring over a steady drum and bass line.

  • Last year, Fiona Apple released The Idler Wheel and apparently began working on a music video for “Hot Knife” with her ex-boyfriend and director of There Will Be Blood, Paul Thomas Anderson. Finally, we have that video. Using simple lighting and screen splitting to create an arching drama, the video focuses on Fiona’s ecstatic vocals and tightly-wound persona. [Pitchfork]

  • Sebadoh released an EP recently, and now they are back with the single “I Will” from their forthcoming full-length album Defend Yourself this fall. Simple and to the point indie-rock that doesn’t waste time with tricks. [Stereogum]

  • You can’t help but love Seattle’s Tangerine — even those of us who don’t listen to pop can’t deny the band’s well-treated indie-sweet sensibility. Marika’s vocals are addictive, a bit mournful while still poppy, like a teen breakup on a summer day. And they don’t waste their ability to shred on the guitar, building the track up with lovely little riffs in between twinkling piano. “Feel This Way” is from their upcoming Radical Blossom EP. [ARS]
