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.
