Julian Lynch - Garden 2

Julian Lynch sounds like an Irish name but he's probably not. I can assume he's not Irish cos he's made loopy trancendental mini-marvel with this track; a glistening, hypnotic jangly layered riff slithers all over some mystical chanted vocals, butressed by some weird, reedy wind instrument, probably clarinet. It should go on for days, but it mystifyingly ends after a mere 3.32 minutes and seconds. Do what i do and play it on repeat for ages.

Kings Of Convenience - Boat Behind

This is just great, it really is and the record is true quality.

Thats the post

Yes thats the post

And we will reiterate

This is just great, it really is and the record is true quality.

And on the new album probably the best song is named after their last album, can't think where that ever happened before.

Dinosaur Jr - Over it

Electric Picnic is on this weekend and DetritusTV hopes to find a festival site that isn't submerged by the weekend. It's raining now,will it rain then, Will it?, Please answer will it?

It probably will.

But who cares Dinosaur Jr are playin' and apparently they're one of the best bands to see while standing in the rain. Here at DetirusTV we would like to play more quality vids, oh the music is always quality but actually good quality vids, you'll know when you watch....

Best Coast - Sun Was High (So Was I)

I don't know anything about this band and I couldn't be bothered to Google them. So lets just make something up shall we? Best Coast took their name from a misheard conversation when lead singer Ranulph Van Zorn was eating a bowl of Cheerios and remarked to lead guitarist Ty Stretch that he was wearing the 'best coat'. The misnomer also inspired their jangly pop-psychedelia sound and blissed-out west coast riffage. This is a tune that should make to sun feel guilty for not coming out to play. Come on Mr Sun, put your hat on and parade about like a jezebel.

Japandroids - Live on KEXP

Some have said that with the demise of record companies the time of the over produced album is over. But what will that mean, possibly less orchestral intros and more bands sounding like Japandroids as the DIY ethic is no longer a choice but a necessity, which is no bad thing.

Mary Margaret O'Hara - When You Know Why You're Happy

Shamed deserter Silver Medalist returns to the front after an inordinate time AWOL, but he comes bearing a wonderful gift - the delirious, dolorous, hypnotic voice of Mary Margaret O'Hara. It's 21 years since her one and only record, the nocturnal, noirish country soul of Miss America, but the indisyncratic songbird remains unique, still singing like a through-the-looking-glass siren, with that alluring, trancendental, bewildering vocal cadence. On this majestic video clip, she looks like Juno, and her band resemble extras from Jake and the Fatman, which makes it all even better

Money Mark - Hand in your Head

WE'RE BACK. Technical problems (ie broken computer) thought they could thwart the Detritus and they did for a while, but WE'RE BACK and in celebratory mood. But what vid, what vid to begin this new chapter of DetritusTV

Viewer: Surely somethin new you discovered while on this technical sojurn

DetritusTV: You'd think!

Viewer: And think correctly

DetritusTV: You think wrong yet again here's a classic from Money Mark

Some lo-fi noise pop for Tuesday. Yes on a Tuesday, what day would you suggest.

DetritusTV Viewer: Thursday

DetritusTV: Thursday, Thursday! Get Real.

Rone - Spanish Breakfast

The longest day of the year and DetritusTV hoped to commermorate this with the longest music video ever created but didn't in the end.

Sonar 2009 - Orbital

Maybe some greeted the reformed Orbital with a sense of grim inevitability but there's no doubt that they've earned their place in the electonica pantheon. DetritusTV remembers watching this vid many years ago on daytime tv and wondering why it didn't sound anything like Oasis.


and Dr Who, why not!

Sonar 2009 - Atom TM

In an unintended connection with the last post another artist that feels his name should be appendexed with a TM appears. Instead of Schneider we have Atom TM.

So here is the ATOM TM that we speak of in video......


Schneider TM - The Light 3000

DetritusTV has a car at the mo which is no great odds, however two passengers in this car have noted that the electronic sound that indicates an open door sounds like the beginning of a Schneider TM song. I think the song they refer to is his cover of The Smiths song There is a light that never goes out.

Maybe so - so here's the track to commemorate this great vehicle/electronica convergence.


Amerie - 1 Thing

Music commentators more intelligible than DetritusTV (did we even spell intelligible rite) often say that with such and such track you can't help dancing. DetritusTV knows only one track where this statement is F.A.C.T. and that's Amerie's - 1 Thing. Check it out and see that DetritusTV is rite yet again.


Sonar 2009 - Fever Ray

If DetritusTV were at Sonar we would defo go to see Fever Ray so long as they were palyin' durin the day. We have reservations about ever again attending the cavernous air hanger night time event - DetritusTV is gettin old you know.

Sonar 2009 - Leila

Sonar is this week end in Barcelona and DetritusTV has decided to watch youtube clips of it this year instead of attending. Turn off the lights, turn the volume on this vid up, get some budweiser beers in plastic cups, turn up the heating and you to can transport yourself there.

Heres Leila from last year.


Little Boots - New in Town

DetritusTV is back - reasons not here - have you not seen spotify?.

But we return and with Little Boots who made an appearance here last year with a non motion video. Little Boots returns with motion and chart placings and we do like her disco pop Laurie Anderson sounds.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Heads Will Roll

DetritusTV has had the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs album, Its Blitz, on repeat the last few days. Zero and Heads Will Roll offer a propulsive synthy opening to the record and that thankfully continues right through, the track Runaway is amazing.

Some have said that DetritusTV should shy away from any group that appears on Jools Holland and should defo not play a clip from his show but the YYY's have made it hard to post vids so Jools is our only option.

So imagine the most bombastic introduction that Jools would give:

"Seasick Steve folks - What about that!! What about that!! And now all the way from Yeah Land here's the Yeah Yeah Yeahs!!!"

Irma Thomas - It's Raining

Not enough soul music you declared

Not enough Tom Waits you exclaimed

And not enough dancing, there's been no dancing!!!

Well today DetritusTV shall remedy all these complaints in one fell swoop with what is not strictly a music video but could been seen as such. Its from Jim Jarmusch's excellent movie Down by Law and features Tom Waits at the table, Irma Thomas on the jukebox and dancing, of a sort.

The Black Dog - Further Vexations

Its been quite a while since DetritusTV has looked forward to an album release so much but the new The Black Dog record has finally arrived. Its inspired by the fears of an encroaching surveillance society and the resulting loss of personal liberty. This sinister theme is a continuation from the last album Radio Scarecrow and although only a year since this release the new record has a distinct and individual sound.

See attached short movie made to promote album, which is quality.

Parts & Labor - The Gold We're Digging

For a certain generation Ray Harryhausen's stop motion skeletons will always remain infinitely scarier than any of today's CGI creations. It was just the unnatural way they moved. Stop motion features in today's vid by Parts and Labour but fortunately there are no giant crabs.

The Horrors - Sea Within A Sea

If someone had suggested in 2006 that The Horrors would one day make a good record they would have been swiftly derided and quickly directed to the fact that said group are nothing more than professional event openers whose hipster haircuts guarantee a few photos.

But Geoff Barrow of Portishead produced the latest record and the results are really interesting. Listen to new single Sea within a Sea which DetritusTV can only describe as a psyched Philip Glass motorik fusion.

Glass Candy - Digital Versicolor

For reasons we won't elaborate on DetritusTV ended up buying the Glass Candy record Beatbox twice in the space of one week in two different countries. Its quality electroy/italo pop but this is the track that brought them to DetritusTV's attention. It featured in the closing credits of the film of the year so far - Bronson.

We also had the chance to see A Camp live last night. They decorated the venue's bland stage in an Ibsen parlour style and we can report that their wistful Scandinavian sound was well received and a good time was had by all.

The Joy Formidable - Austere

DetritusTV ventured to the Camden Queue, sorry Crawl this weekend. It showcases lots of new bands and artists but DetritusTV ended up just seeing The Fall, which was great. We did see one other act and that was The Joy Formidable that played before Mark E and Co. They were quite somethin'

The Replacements - Customer/Rattlesnake

An unexpected theme has emerged this week and its early 80's late 70's hardcore and here's the next installment. It must be said The Replacements had well behaved fans unlike certain others. Vid attached is a two song medley from 1981 and is known as Customer/Rattlesnake.

The Adverts - One Chord Wonders

Another rowdy crowd disturbs today's vid but The Adverts cope admirably in the face of some bawdy language and aggressive looks from the assembled onlookers.

You know there may be trouble when a band warn "don't injure us" but all is ok and One Chord Wonder is played to an appreciative audience, Phew.

Bad Brains - Big Takeover Live at CBGB's 1982

McClow has cold and McClow is now typing at computer and drinking lemonsip - sorry wrong social network app, am now in the refined and purposeful environs of a blog. As the late D F Wallace once bemoaned about John Updike "Has the son of a bitch ever had one unpublished thought?" it seems that such could now be leveled at the twittering masses.

But lo it is indeed good to share and to share such things as Bad Brains vids. Check this vid from CBGB's in 1982 which has a crowd as frenetic as the band.


and to show that the manic crowd above wasn't a once of check this vid of same song -

Paul McCartney - Waterfalls

DetritusTV's last post was just before St Patrick's day so you can understand the delay, it took a week or so for the alcohol to drain from our system. But we're now cogent and focused on the task of music video provision.

Paul McCartney joins us today with a quite spectacular vid that also contains some sound words of advice such as "don't go chasing polar bears" - wise words -

John Cooper Clarke - Chickentown

Ok its not a music video but we set the bloody rules here and think punk poet John Cooper Clark can stand his ground against those that demand orchestration with words.

The bloody Drums and guitars
and bloody decks and triangles,
and bloody 808's and 303's,
and ableton, who bloody needs them.

Robert Wyatt & Bertrand Burgalat -This summer night

Robert Wyatt has become a bit of a regular on DetritusTV which is no harm. He has a new track with Bertrand Burgalat and its a quality slice of Gallic infused drama pop.

Nite Jewel - Artificial Intelligence

Nite Jewel has created a much needed new genre - dopey disco. Her languid, ethereal voice and morphine drip production lull you into a becalmed, balmy, nocturnal (dis)coma. She has even been deigned worthy enough to release some tracks on the Italians Do It Better label, that hothouse of all things italowankycool. Her album Good Evening is a soft-centred, beguiling charmer and she is going to be a lot less popular than Lady GaGa, but way better, playing cinderella to the laters Ugly Sister.

Harmonic 313 - Falling Away

DetritusTV has been listening to one of the first great records of 2009 and its by Harmonic 313 on Warp Records.

It has the unwieldy title of - When Machines Exceed Human Intelligence, and when they do maybe they'll make a vid for this track but until then its a static vision of the album cover in all its BBC keyboard and monochrome glory.

Titus Andronicus - Titus Andronicus

Titus Andronicus appear and waltz onto the stage like a whirlygig version of early Idlewild. Its looks like education wasn't wasted on the Titus as not only do they use a latin title for their band they have a song called Albert Camus which is a frenzied rock operatic version of The Plague.

M Ward - Hold Time

You'd think that DetritusTV could come up with a suitable themed week after its time in exile, but no. We considered maybe top 5 music videos featuring an inappropriate sitar accompaniment (not a bad idea). Anyhows as its not a week of tenuously grouped vids we can play some of our recent favourites so here's M Ward.

Global Goon - Dead Weird Keks

Today DetritusTV plans to rectify our lack of Global Goon vids until this point. It features numerous colours, a busy hand that likes rolling down steps, playin' guitar, dancing and just generally having a pretty good time.


And for no reason at all except that its an animation here's one of DetritusTV's favourite ever non-music vids.

The Notwist - Where In This World

DetritusTV viewers will be glad to hear that we have secured passage from the beach. We saw a ship on the horizon and after swimming out to it we were taken on board. We are unsure of the destination as the crew don't seem to understand us and have never heard of our homeland.

They still use old radio transmitters and while spinning the dial we tuned into this track by The Notwist.

The Sea and Cake - Crossing Line

DetritusTV wandered about the beach today and walked to the top of the highest dune and back again. We're really tired of this Beckettian no man's land and would like to go home now. Still the conch continues to reveal a few surprises although we should have guessed it would have some music by The Sea and Cake.

DetritusTV would like less sea and more cake at the mo though.

Beirut - Elephant Gun

DetritusTV has resigned itself to indefinite exile on this beach. It seems to stretch on for miles and the few beach dwellers seem at a loss to understand our plight and that we need passage home. Thankfully though the conch that we found yesterday has few different tracks and we've been listening to them quite a bit. It has a song by Beirut and while its not of his new album March of the Zapotec (c'mon its a conch we found on the beach, it hasn't updated its playlist in a few weeks - so what) it is one of his best.

The Whitest Boy Alive - Courage

Our calls for help went unheeded and DetritusTV remains on this forgotten beachhead in Scotland. While foraging around the shore we found a portable music device that predates even the discman and we think the walkman too. It plays mostly ambient aquatic seascapes and is known as a conch.

The conch we found though had a track from the new Whitest Boy Alive album!

Glasgow Week - Mogwai

HELP US!! DetritusTV is still languishing on some forgotten beach on this isle called Scotland. The icy crossing is gone and we've been left gazing across the ocean at our distant homeland.

Another friendly beach dweller approached us today and recited some poetry by the Scottish poet Philip Larkin:

Seventy feet down
The sea explodes upwards,
Relapsing, to slaver
Off landing-stage steps -
Running suds, Rejoice!

While these lines alleviated our misery somewhat, it's transit home we need not poetry.

Fortunately this beach person also had some music on his discman and let us listen to two Mogwai tracks one being our favourite 2 Rights Make One Wrong.

Hopefully DetritusTV will make it home soon.

Glasgow Week - The Pastels

After a few days in Glasgow Detritus TV had sufficiently recovered from the ice sea crossing to attempt the return home. We traveled to the coast expecting to use the icy sea path again but lo... the ice crossing to our land had melted and we were left languishing on the shoreline pining for home.

A beach dweller then approached and we told him of our sorry tale, to alleviate our woes and to nicely tie in with our Glasgow week he let us listen to this song by The Pastels on his walkman.

Glasgow Week - The Delgados

Detritus TV was cold and shivery after its ice sea crossing and as we strolled the streets of this city of Glasgow we happened upon The Telltale Thistle Pub. We progressed inside and a familiar sound emanating from the tavern's wireless enveloped us. It was the sound of The Delgados.....

Glasgow Week - The Phantom Band

The other day part of the sea adjoining our isle completely froze over so DetritusTV took this icy opportunity and wandered into another land. We would recommend this form of international travel to all as its loads of fun sliding down frozen waves. We ended up in this city called Glasgow and were told by the locals of all the great music they have. These Glasgow people were right they have an amazing heritage in producing great popular music. So this week we will feature bands from Glasgow and we start with newcomers The Phantom Band. This group sound like a Scottish Smog one moment and the next Surfing harmonies divided by barbershop - Enjoy.

Peverlist - Roll With The Punches

DetritusTV was sat at work today but was distracted by the rally cries and cheers that drifted in the window from a protest taking place outside. The photo above is a picture that we quickly took out the office window, very symmetrical protesters. As the hum of the crowd faded into the distance DetritusTV was online and saw that similar gatherings were occurring all over Europa, will 09 be the next 68.

If so some good marching music would possibly come from Peverlist, or not, who knows.

Galaxie 500 - Snowstorm

DetritusTV thinks its surely the time for the return of our popular regional weather report series. Took the above photo on the way home on the 120 bus this evening and yes the Northside of Dubh Linn has a fair bit of snow, the aurora came out for a bit not many people noticed though. Temperatures are down in the minus figures we'd guess.
And to tie in with this most snowy of posts here's indie heroes Galaxie 500.


And found this great footage of one of my favourite songs of theirs, Tugboat

Beth Gibbons & Rustin Man - Mysteries

One half of DetritusTV had the worst Monday. Regular viewers may recall the Gnarls Barkley post and the accompanying text which was much to the chagrin of McClow at the time. But now its his turn to perpetuate this theme except with a better vid.

Lali Puna - Faking the Books

DetritusTV is glad it wasn't part of the fevered scramble that gripped this land last Friday. Middle management offices and cubicles alike cast aside their work concerns for a few hours that morn and incanted the name of Bruce in a hushed reverence as they apprehensively glared at the ticket timer online.

"You must wait 16 minutes, you must wait 21 minutes. Sold Out - but wait a totally unexpected new date has been added put me done for 5 more tickets - 16 minutes - 25 minutes"
and so on.

And while the economy collapses around us its always heartening to see that people will pay literally hundreds to see an aging multi-millionaire rock star churn out the hits again and again and again.

Anyhows heres the mighty Lali Puna

Windy and Carl - Undercurrent

The lamented Silver Medalist returns from hiatus with promises of gold, frankspencer and mirrors. New Year blues prompted yours truly to do a "Bon Iver" and relocate to a log cabin and attempt to make my own private internet out of string, blu tack, and thinly veiled contempt for Liverpool FC, but alas the project failed after I could only get around 256kps speed with such a flimsy base infrastructure. The heroic McClow was left pulling the wagon on his own on Detritus TV, and that he did with furious abandon. The period of reflection was not a wasted one, as I have returned invigorated with glittery new youtube baubles. Now, let's be quiet and savour the dronecore of Windy and Carl.

Pete Rock & C. L. Smooth - They Reminisce Over You

DetritusTV didn't bother to wear its' glasses today, so had to peer a little closer when viewing the concert listings in the local record store. As the blurry characters slowly emerged a name was decipherable among the fog of letters. DetritusTV was glad to see that name was Pete Rock playin' next month. Pete Rock with Cl Smooth were legends but their place in the rap pantheon has never seemed assured for reasons beyond us. On youtube one poster describes this as the Greatest Track
EVER. ThomasMichealMeyer we think you may be right.

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart - Everything With You

DetritusTV may be just made of a cathode ray and a few circuits but we had formative years too when the wires were connected. So we were please to be reminded of this time by the C86, early Teenage Fanclub soundin' The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart.

Its distilled indie pop and even has a Super 8 vid but we like it.


Sunday, January 25, 2009

Animal Collective - My Girls

DetritusTV is certainly surprised that the catchiest tune its heard this year is from Animal Collective. We've had it on repeat for the last few days and its instant likeability is seriously hampering efforts to progress into the Merriweather Pavilion.

The Beatles - A Day In The Life

DetritusTV is certainly in favour of lists as they provide the perfect distraction, their assembly being the pinnacle of procrastination. It is however, a long time since DetritusTV perused a list as extensive as JBev's ultimate countdown of Beatles tracks. It's basically a countdown, from in his opinion the worst Beatles track through to the best and in addition he writes quite extensively about each song. While his choices are at times random especially the endless dismissal of the White Album (the weird & bad tracks are what made it even more enjoyable) it is an entertaining read.

So here's the No.1 which is a good choice and link to list too.

Sid Vicious - My Way

Telepathe - Devil's Trident

One of the most strictly enforced rules for having a new band in 2009 is that you're from Brooklyn so Telepathe were glad when this arbitrary and geographically specific musical criteria was introduced.

Ra Ra Riot - Ghosts Under Rocks

DetritusTV heard the singer with hotly tipped band for 2009 White Pies mouthing of on the radio today. He said, (now remember this is a new band just starting out) that the government wasn't doing enough to combat illegal downloading of music. At least Lars Ulrich was in the recording business for about 40 years or so when he dumped in a courtroom lists of the names of Metallica fans who had downloaded his music without permission, this guy has been around for 5 minutes. Has he not heard of HypeMachine et al, its how these bands gain exposure. DetritusTV predicts that by March 2009 we will have forgotten about White Pies and their existence will have been nothing but a momentary blip in our consciousness.

Here's Ra RA Riot:

Beta Residue Week - The Beta Band

There's really only one song that we could complete this momentous Beta Residue Week with and that's Dry The Rain which is surely the Beta's finest moment if not musics (there is an argument). The Beta live show is legendary so a vid of the song in concert is attached also.

For completeness Gordon Anderson who is also in The Aliens records under the name Lone Pigeon but there's no quality vids online that DetritusTV could tune into.


And for some reason the vids don't remind DetritusTV of any online games, strange that.

Beta Residue Week - The Aliens

Welcome to another day in this week of Beta Residue where we examine the indie group version of mitosis. Yesterday we considered The Aliens and as as the division of the Betas was limited we must take a closer look at The Aliens. So here they are:


And for some reason this vid reminds DetritusTV of this free online game

Beta Residue Week - The Aliens

Beta Residue Week continues to elucidate DetritusTV viewers on the tangled and fractious history of The Beta Band. From the implosion of this group The Aliens emerged and they created Music, yes Music! Much of this music was of the happy kind as can be seen in the attached vid.


And for some reason this vid reminds me of this free online game that can be played here:

Beta Residue Week - The Beta Band

DetritusTV thinks its fair to say that the Beta Band never fully realised their true potential due to a whole host of reasons. For instance DetritusTV always remembers when their first full length record was released the band openly decried that it was rubbish which is not the best form of promotion. It was this kind of behaviour that made them always interesting and they certainly stood out from their anodyne peers.


And for some reason this vid reminds me of a free online game that is available here

Beta Residue Week - King Biscuit Time

McClow returns after his icy wanderings and is back thawing out at DetritusTV. Thanks to Jimmy Joe Jackson for looking after things.

You may have noticed that the arts pages of magazines and papers are awash with tales of the newest bands and noises that you must like in 2009. Listen to White Pies and Little Boots they demand! but we at DetritusTV have decided to deal with slightly less contemporary matters such as bands that have broken up. This week comes the turn of one of the most sorely missed groups of all - The Beta Band. This week we'll play vids by off-shoots, bands created by former members and the odd Beta vid.

First up is King Biscuit Time which is the name Steve Mason of the Beta Band now records under. He released one album in 2006 and his website is disabled so not sure of the future for The Biscuit as he's known.


This vid reminded me of a great online game called Line Rider which is free to try out here.

Joe Jackson - Look Sharp

Jimmy Joe Jackson here, what a great week I've had looking after DetritusTV, hope you all enjoyed my contributions, sharp wasn't it.

And final lyric for you all to enjoy.

Lykke Li - I'm Good, I'm Gone

Hey kids Jimmy Joe Jackson is still here ain't that great. I received a letter today signed by McClow and Silver Medalist, it reads:

Dear Jimmy Joe,

Thanks for looking after the blog for the last few days, things are certainly looking alot sharper. Sorry we wont be back for a while as the dreamweaving business has taken me to the icy caverns of the Sligeach highlands and Silver Medalist informs me that the icy downturn has hit his homestead particularly bad with most things frozen including the internet.

Keep up the good work


Silver Medalist

Music Vid today comes from Swedish singer you all like Lykke Li.

Lyric for today:

"Is that sharp?
Is it
Is it
It is
Yes Yes"

Jonathan Johansson - En hand i himlen

Hey, Jimmy Joe Jackson here, yes still, as I think McClow is lost in the highlands and Silver Medalist says that the enter button is broken on his laptop.

But thats no prob as the longer I stay here the sharper things get.

Heres some new music by the Swedish producer Jonathan Johansson not to be confused with the Icelandic ethereal noise composer (thats his official title) Johann Johansson.

And a lyric or two to mull over:

"Hold that tiger
Hold that tiger
Hold that tiger

Where's that tiger?
Where's that tiger?
Where's that tiger?"

Fever Ray - If I had A Heart

Hey, Jimmy Joe Jackson here again as McClow is wandering the highlands and Silver Medalist is still searching for the internet. No probs though as the blog is looking a lot sharper since I arrived.

More new music and todays vid is by Fever Ray who are an off shoot of The Knife.

More of my lyrics for you to consider till next time -

"And when I die and go to pure pop heaven
The angels will gather around
And ask me for my whole life story
And ask for that fabulous sound
But I know they're gonna stop me
As I start going through every line
And say please not the whole damn album
Nobody has that much time"

A Camp - Stronger Than Jesus

Hey Kids, Jimmy Joe Jackson here, this country's no.1 Joe Jackson cover singer. While those fools McClow and Silver Medalist are of skiving its time for me to sharpen up this blog.

You may have read about the latest happening bands tipped for 09 but there's a group I'll tip to make it big. They're called A Camp, yes A Camp, not the sharpest of names but they do have Nina Perrson of Cardigans fame singin'.

Here's some wise words from my song Tuzla to ponder till next time.

"Look at the guy selling beer
Where the hell did he get it from?"

J. J. J.
