Folk rock-shoegazers, The Uglysuit, have independently released “1902 Deep Ocean” from their upcoming EP, Merrycan Prairie. This psychedelic tune is part creepy, part soothing—perfect for the fall season.

Watch the video for Zola Jesus’ “Clay Bodies”, filled with the glorious, decaying remains of Detroit. Channeling the Corpse Bride, the gothic songstress adds to the ambient despair with her haunting falsetto. Full of gloom and lace, “Clay Bodies” is unwaveringly bleak yet beautiful.

When I saw Them Crooked Vultures at their first show at the Metro, nobody knew what to think of “Interlude with Ludes”, with John Paul Jones coaxing a cheesy tune from a keytar and Josh Homme vamping around the stage like a campy seductress, but it at least showed Homme’s supreme self-confidence and disregard for a stodgy, hypermasculine stomp-rock image, for what people expect him to be. The same will probably go for Julian Casablancas on Conan, where instead of standing behind a mic stand and rolling his eyes, he dances around like a bizarro Tom Jones. My thoughts cycled from “I can’t believe he’s doing that” to “I can’t believe he’s making it look cool”, from “is that actually cool?” to “who cares?”. The performance is more fun for it. It’s not like he could sing this song and not dance.

This song is brand new, taped from the audience with surprisingly good fidelity at the NBC Experience Store.
