We seem to be getting overwhelmed by high quality videos at the moment so it would be churlish and not a little selfish of us not to share some of the best with you.

Kicking off is the wonderful video for the delicately beautiful Tuck The Darkness In from the Bowerbirds new album The Clearing.

Next we have Cheyenne Marie Mize and a video for her adventurous track Wishing Well from new EP We Don’t Need.

Iroquois Falls is Toronto resident Priya Thomas, a creation that came about following the death of her best friend and roommate. After which she fell into disorientation and despair, and it is chronicled by this music she recorded. The sound falls somewhere in between Patti Smith, Lydia Lunch and Grouper. Check it out.

By contrast The Vespers are irreverent and even goofy in this video for the upbeat indie pop of brand new song Flower Flower. It comes from new album The Fourth Wall (out April 3rd) – grab another track from it below as well.

And talking of irreverence, here is the Boom Bang’s stop-motion video for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme tune. It has over 4,000 individual pictures, 60 hand drawn images and 3 months of tedious work to recreate the nostalgic 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon introduction in stop motion. Watch it and download it for free.

Spring Offensive are another emerging Oxford band who are starting to create quite a name for themselves. This is the video for the gorgeous Carrier (the b-side to forthcoming single Worry Fill My Heart) and you can see why the buzz is justified.

Bonnie And Clyde is the debut single from The Last Party, due out on the 16th April, and is one of the best new tracks we’ve heard for a while. Well worth checking out – see if you can spot guest star Clint Boon from the Inspiral Carpets?

Sharon Van Etten’s new album Tramp is finally seeming to be bringing her the attention and plaudits she deserves. This is the video for Leonard.

UK indie rockers The Joy Formidable’s newest single is the pummelling rocker A Heavy Abacus, which the band have recorded and released a new music video for.

a

And finally we have another debut video, this one is from indie rockers Wildlife for their song Sea Dreamer. It’s got rival gangs, street bowling, food fighting, a gun, more weapons, more fighting, and props – lots and lots of props. Download it for free too…

New Single From The Boom Bang. We’ve been fans of The Boom Bang’s lo-fi, scuzzy, irreverent take on garage rock for a good while now, and they have just released a new split 7″ record with Copperheads out through Okie Dope Records (all orders come with a digital download too). The track is called Jabroni Ramoney – have a listen below and watch the Teen Wolf inspired music video too!

To celebrate our lovely WordPress snowflakes (which are making Mrs M and Polly Pocket quite happy) and will take you through to Christmas and beyond, here is a free Christmas song from The Boom Bang.

In case you missed them when we posted about their debut Bummer Camp EP, they’re a bunch of garage rock devotees playing fuzzy, reverb laden rock ‘n’ roll with added elements of punk, surf-rock and just about anything else they can get their grimy hands on.

So appropriately enough, have a blast of The Coast of Christmas Trash and get yourself in the mood.

Visit their MySpace here.

The Boom Bang are about to put out their first 7″, the excellently named Bummer Camp EP featuring four tracks and marvellous Dr. Suess style artwork. The release is scheduled for the 17th September on Guestroom Records.

The four tracks are a blend of scuzzy, scrappy, lo-fi garage rock that gleefully burrows into your skull uninvited and once there takes up residence for the long-term. Influences are grabbed, sucked dry of their juices, and discarded on the roadside – from Link Wray’s Rumble, to twangy surf-pop to the latest buzz bands like The Crocodiles or Fresh & Onlys.

Check out lead track Run Way Away and the sub-two minute gem Swamp City.
