VOTD: Lit-punk? Lit-punk!

Watch some indie-punk Canucks dyin’ on the inside.

You could argue that punk is inherently unambitious music, but hardcore sextet Fucked Up’s recent expansive rock opera, “David Comes to Life," convincingly argues that it can aim high. Watch as David and his gal pal, Veronica, get stalked by a creepy-looking Mad Hatter-in-real-life character while the band walks around on railroad tracks all hipster-like. The track’s called “The Other Shoe.”



Check out the album’s first video, “Queen of Hearts,” for further viewing/listening. “David Comes to Life” is probably going to wind up near the top of most folks’ best-of lists this year, I’m thinking.

VOTD: A Norman double-feature!

Watch new videos from locals Broncho and Shi++y/Awesome!

Sorry for the lack of post-age the last couple of days- I've been scrambling to catch up with work, post-ACL when I wasn't busy mourning the late retirement of one of America's greatest bands. It's not the end of the world as we know it, I guess; I feel fine. Onward to the videos!

Another Delo-helmed Broncho vid is reason to celebrate. Watch Ryan Lindsey get chased by stuff like growing up, responsibility and all that other terrible junk, represented by his murderous bandmates. Cool graphic work, guys!



Shitty/Awesome once again live up to their name with this hilarious, low-grade spacesuit romp at Norman's annual medieval fair. Those suits.

Bitchin’

Norman punks John Wayne’s Bitches formed less than two years ago. Isn’t it too soon for a comeback show? They’ve got a good reason.

Cloud Nothings — Attack on Memory

Don’t be fooled by the title. This punk gem harkens back to days of plenty.


Rock

Matt Carney
It’s pretty tempting to call “Attack on Memory,” the latest album by Cleveland punks Cloud Nothings the work of a punkist, that being its obviously talented front man Dylan Baldi. That’s a compliment, I promise.
