  • Brooklyn-via-Alabama singer/songwriter Katie Crutchfield, better known as Waxahatchee, shares a lovely new video for the track “La Loose,” a single from her recent Merge Records release, Ivy Tripp. The clip was directed by Naomi Yang (Galaxie 500, Damon & Naomi) who says in a statement: “I wanted the video to be a visual equivalent to the song lyric, ‘a charming picture of hysteria in love,’ a spinning emotional kaleidoscope of desire and rejection, adoration and anger, hope and despair. For this reason I set the video in mirror-twin locations: an abandoned, haunted amusement park and a thriving farm out of a beautiful dream.” Watch below, and then watch her KEXP session here: [Consequence of Sound]

  • Speedy Ortiz pay tribute to director David Lynch in the video for their single “My Dead Girl,” off their sophomore release, Foil Deer. The clip, directed by Elle Schneider, pays tribute to television show Twin Peaks, plus, films Eraserhead, Mulholland Drive, and Blue Velvet. Watch at Spin: [Spin]
  • Since Vivian Girls’ break-up in 2007, Katy Goodman has been keeping busy with her project, La Sera.

Check out the single “High Notes” below, along with a trailer for the new album. Music For Listening to Music To hits stores on March 4th via Polyvinyl. [Under the Radar]

  • It’s been a year since the ferocious debut from Brooklyn punkers Big Ups, and today, they re-emerge with a new track: stream the single “Capitalized” below. The band also share a trailer for their sophomore release, which seems to be titled Before A Million Universes, out Spring 2016 on Brace Yourself Records, Tough Love Records, and Exploding In Sound Record. We can’t wait. [Stereogum]
