Bio-Dead

There’s something out there. Yawn.


Horror

Rod Lott
With a pulsing score that recalls the best of John Carpenter, the blue-tinted “Bio-Dead” begins promisingly enough, as a handful of guys in hazmat suits approaches yet another seemingly abandoned building to comb for survivors, post-chem disaster.

VOTD: Roundup!

Have some NYE Freakout leftovers, Iron & Wine, Craig Finn and Youth Lagoon, won’t you?

Youth Lagoon — “July”
Youth Lagoon proved 2011’s most fragile new sound, and this song’s a textbook example. Watch a sad, bloody teenage drama unfold here. Also note the car driving on the wrong side of the highway near the video’s end.



Iron & Wine — “Godless Brother in Love”
Less fragile than delicate, this Iron & Wine video supporting the very-good 2011 album “Kiss Each Other Clean” goes camping. This one’s much more into celebrating youth than mourning it. Warning: chicks with armpit hair abound.



Craig Finn — “Jackson”
Here, The Hold Steady front man (who plays The Conservatory on Feb. 2!) plays a reminiscent, kinda downtrodden song off his forthcoming album, “Clear Heart, Full Eyes,” due out Jan. 24 on Vagrant Records. “It’s good” is all I have to say about it.



Phantogram — “Running from the Cops” live in OKC
I actively decided not to listen to dark-toned New York indie-synth act Phantogram prior to its NYE Freakout opening set, just to be surprised. Turns out I was overwhelmed. Here’s a trippy, strobed-out video I helped Nathan Poppe shoot on night one of the festivities. Nathan says he’ll have a video from Neon Indian’s night-two opening set by the end of the week.

Wanda Jackson — Unfinished Business


Rock

Phil Bacharach
You can’t keep genuine royalty from flaunting their power. Wanda Jackson, the 1950s’ Queen of Rockabilly who set the standard for rock ’n’ roll women and even managed to get Elvis Presley hot and bothered, is back with Unfinished Business.

House of Dark Shadows / Night of Dark Shadows

Double up with earlier big-screen 'Shadows.'


Horror

Rod Lott
Those who liked Tim Burton's misunderstood Dark Shadows movie may be curious about exploring the long-running TV soap opera on which it was based. I understand, but instead would point them first in the direction of the 1970 and 1971 feature films, House of Dark Shadows and Night of Dark Shadows.

Happy Record Store Day Black Friday!

Break open the piggy bank, vinyl heads!


Music

Louis Fowler
While everyone with normal lives will be buying bargain-basement trinkets and low-end electronics for their loved ones at 3 a.m. on Black Friday at their nearest SuperTarget, hardcore music geeks will be sleeping in.
