Exclusive Premiere: Kat Robichaud's "Uh Oh"

Posted By on Fri, Aug 28, 2015 at 12:28 PM

Glam rocker Kat Robichaud didn’t have puppets in mind when she distilled her thoughts about lovers’ quarrels into the song, “Uh Oh,” but her collaboration with goth puppet master Dave Haaz-Baroque on other projects led to the creation of the song’s puppet-filled music video, which premieres here on All Shook Down.
The video opens with Robichaud sitting on a vintage love seat, surrounded by pop and geek culture artifacts, including a science textbook, a Sherlock Holmes-style magnifying glass, a toy Dalek, and a pith helmet and goggles hanging over a framed charcoal drawing of a feathered dinosaur.

Earl Sweatshirt Gives Stage Invader Lesson In Respecting Personal Space

Posted By on Mon, Jul 27, 2015 at 4:42 PM

Earl Sweatshirt was accosted from behind during a performance in Sydney, Australia over the weekend. In a video, posted below, a crazed fan sneaks up behind the rapper and grabs at his face — perhaps in over-enthusiastic attempt to hug him, or maybe in a Beatlemania-esque attempt to devour the rising star. Running Clip notes that the event could have been sparked by the stage invader's previous attempts at stagediving, which saw the fan kicking fellow concert-goers in the head and Sweatshirt calling him a "fucktard."

Antwon Needed Two Phones in New "JACUZZI" Video Because He's Important

Antwon dropped a video for "JACUZZI" today ahead of his new EP Double Ecstasy, which is due out later this fall.

The rapper, originally out of San Jose, has strong ties to the Bay Area punk community he grew up in, which explains why the press release for the new video included references to Infest and power-violence. Now based in L.A., the rapper can be seen in the video chilling in Long Beach, wearing a Nothing shirt, and chatting simultaneously on two cellphones.

Action Bronson's music has always garnered a lot of Ghostface Killah comparisons, and rightfully so. Bronson does sound a lot like Ghostface, who once joked after hearing Bronson's voice that he thought it was one of his own verses.

But it appears the jokes are over.

Rihanna's Vengeful "Bitch Better Have My Money" Video Is Everything You Have Ever Wanted

Posted By on Thu, Jul 2, 2015 at 1:38 PM

1128173.jpg
Rihanna's new video for "Bitch Better Have My Money," which opens with bloody female legs sticking out of a trunk, flips the script on the media's portrayal of women by slowly revealing to the viewer that (spoiler alert) instead of just being another image representing a slasher flick-esque damsel in distress, the blood belongs to an accountant that cheated Rihanna out of some serious money.

Tanlines' "Palace" Video Is Required Viewing Before Heading to Phono Del Sol

Posted By on Wed, Jul 1, 2015 at 12:05 PM

Phono Del Sol is next weekend, July 11, at Potrero Del Sol Park. But before you head over there to catch some tunes and grab a bite to eat, you need to watch Tanlines' new video for "Palace."

The electronic indie rock duo kept the Netflix theme from its hilarious website going by enlisting the help of Natasha Lyonne (from Orange Is The New Black) to star in the new video alongside Alex Karpovsky (from Girls). The video follows the couple through its various disputes, moments of reconciliation, and fantasies in a way that's both humorous and poignant. It also pokes fun at the idea that Tanlines frontman Eric Emm looks exactly like Karpovsky.

Check out the video, and its highly danceable, melodic, synth-heavy tune below. My favorite part is the one involving extension chords:
Tanlines play Phono Del Sol next Saturday, July 11. Tickets are $30-$60.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
