Mike Skinner a.k.a. the Streets, in an attempt to be eminently newsworthy, pulled together a bunch of zombie movie footage to produce a video about the swine flu. The yuck factor is pretty high here, both in terms of the visuals and the music.

Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Psychic TV/PTV3 stopped by NPR’s World Cafe recently for a live performance and it was caught on an iPhone. The band released Mr. Alien Brain at the tail end of 2008 and also stopped by to chat with our 20 Questions in December as well.

Alex & Liane direct the newest Tiga video, “Shoes”, which is the lead-off single from the Canadian DJ’s new album Ciao! releasing May 26th on Last Gang Records. It’s a bit of futuristic high fashion and glammy foot fetish kink on the colorful video.

Juli Thanki praised Whitmore’s 2009 album Animals in the Dark and we gave it a 7. “Animals in the Dark is Whitmore’s most political album to date, with several songs referencing the troubles facing this country, a problem which Whitmore blames on authority figures who abuse their power… The album’s title comes from ‘Old Devils’, the strongest song on an album full of strong songs. Who are the old devils? Whitmore calls them, ‘Those animals in the dark / Malicious politicians with nefarious schemes / Charlatans and crooked cops.’” Whitmore recently stopped by Later…with Jools Holland for powerful performance of “Old Devils”. Plus, here’s a recent performance of “Who Stole the Soul”. Tour dates after the jump.
