There are those who mourn the passing of the music video as though because it lost corporate endorsement it’s a dead medium. Of those people, Seattle’s Into the Storm quickly makes fools with their clip for the song “K’nuckles,” taken from their late-2011 12″. Aside from being visually creative, the song itself is also right-on Melvins-type heavy, and, well, I have a hard time not digging that. Also, they have a song called “Jean-Luc Picard.” I guess I’m easily pegged.
If you enjoy the clip, you might want to check out the Into the Storm Bandcamp page, where you can buy their album, Captains, and hear it in its entirety. Or, if you’re feeling click-lazy, as I am on this hazy early Saturday evening, you might just want to stream it on the player below. That’s alright too:
It occurs to me I never put the numbers up this week. They were down. The decision was partially conscious because of that, but it was also a question of time. On Monday, it was either put up the album of the summer of the week post or do the numbers, and I thought talking about Fu Manchu would be more fun all around. I was right. Plus, there’s a bunch of stuff up in the air right now and I didn’t want to do the numbers, talk about what’s coming up and then have it not happen. So, you know, no numbers this month.
Speaking of things I said would happen that didn’t, last week, I mentioned a giveaway and that didn’t come to fruition. To you who check this site on weekends (bless your generous hearts), I’ll say it now: Come Monday, I’ll be giving away five CD copies and three LPs of the Kadavar self-titled on Tee Pee Records, and I’ll also be streaming a track from that album as well. You don’t want to miss it.
This week coming I’ll also have an exclusive free download of Mos Generator covering Nirvana [Update: This is happening next week.], and if I get confirmation on time, a full-album stream of the new Nightstalker on Small Stone. Not only that, but along with my interview with Jon Davis of Conan, I’ll have a special playlist he curated hosted for streaming.
Pretty audio-heavy week, but I’m up for it if you are.
Until then, I hope you have a great and safe weekend. I have a feeling that before the next couple hours are out, I’ll be kicking around the beer thread (it’s official!) over on the forum, so hopefully I’ll see you there.
