Eels Unveil Rusty Pipes Video

Wednesday, 13 June 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Eels have shared a video for Rusty Pipes.

The track is lifted from their latest LP, ‘The Deconstruction’, which came out earlier this year. Speaking about the video, director Matthias Hoene said:

“When I first listened to the song, I really responded to the theme of being out of sync with your environment and the story almost wrote itself. The hard work was to structure the story to be perfectly in sync with the song, and get every storytelling beat right while shooting on our tight 2 day schedule. I initially sketched the costume roughly on my iPad and then Yungah Lee a super talented concept artist I’ve worked with fleshed out my idea. Finally we had a team of model makers in Prague make the costume from old bits of metal and pipes and ship it over to us in LA. I was doing the final VFX shot myself on a plane to LA and the person sitting next to me watched what I was doing and asked if I was a drainpipe salesman, which I consider as a job done sign of approval.”

It's Loud And Wild, But I Swear It Feels Soft: Beach Slang's James Alex Talks Quiet Slang
Thu 17 May 2018
When we think of Beach Slang, we think of screaming our lungs out with our best friends, t-shirts soaked with sweat and beer, as a man in a crushed velvet jacket leads a dive bar chorus. We certainly do not envision being brought to the brink of tears by the gentle melodies of the same songs after they have been recast with a hauntingly beautiful orchestral backdrop. But that’s the alchemy at the heart of James Alex’s Quiet Slang experiment.

Peace - Kindness is The New Rock and Roll (Album Review)
Tue 15 May 2018
When Peace burst onto the indie-rock scene five years ago, amid a maelstrom of tie-dye t-shirts and reverb-smothered, well, everything, it was clear they wanted to sound big. The Worcester four-piece set the foundations with their debut LP, ‘In Love,’ and built further with its grander follow-up, ‘Happy People’. But, as ‘Kindness is The New Rock and Roll’ shows, bigger doesn’t always mean better.

Ash - Islands (Album Review)
Thu 31 May 2018
Some albums make an instant impact, others take a little time to reveal their charms. The quick-fix magic of the former often wears off swiftly, while the latter usually possess a depth of quality that screams ‘built to last’. With that in mind, any initial feelings of disappointment towards ‘Islands’, the seventh effort of Ash’s eternally youthful career, should be shelved until its stealthy allure has been given the opportunity to sink in.
